Norton Anti-virus 2006, renew subscription or buy 2007?

Have Norton Anti-virus 2006 on 3 computers at work.  It's
time to renew the subscriptions.  But, I can buy Norton
Anti-virus 2007 for the same price as a one year
subscription, and 2007 comes with a one year subscription.
So, should I just renew the 2006 subscriptions, or buy 2007?

I would read a review (or two) of NAV2007 and unless there is some special
problem with it I would definitely get it Vs new subscriptions for NAV2006.
Although the older version may continue to provide good protection, the
latest version usually has new features which make it more desirable.  I
used Norton AV for a number of years and that was my experience.

Thanks for the reply.  That's what I was thinking.  I wonder why anyone would
renew the subscription for the old version when they can get the newer version
for the same price?

That's a good question.  Some years ago NAV was not as heavily discounted as
it is today.  The online upgrade to the new version (from the Symantec
Store) was around $40, so a $20 subscription renewal for the previous
version could make sense (if there were no compelling new features).
However, today you can often get NAV for FREE after rebates so paying for a
sub is silly.

Unfortunately most of those rebate deals are good only in the States and I live
in Canada.  There is a rebate deal I found here where I'll get $35 off if I also
purchase some tax software.  I'm not paying for the Norton software anyway, the
company is. :)

If you are getting this through/for a company, I would suggest that you
purchase Symantec Antivirus Corporate Edition for Workstations and Servers
version 10.2. You can purchase as few as 5 licenses and it's not going to
expire every year, uses a LOT less resources than the home (norton)
product does, and works a lot better on computers than Norton products do.
