I'm using NIS 2009 which includes NAV 2009.  I installed it on three
computers and the install is incredibly fast - less then two minutes and
didn't require a reboot.  I've used previous versions of NIS and NAV,
including 2008, and everything about the 2009 versions is dramatically
improved.  Regarding detection I can't personally test it, but it did
receive very high marks from a recent PC Magazine review.

Norton products always recieve very high marks from PC magazines, for a
number of reasons:
i) People who write pc magazines always ahve the latest technology, with
huge amounts of ram, fast hard drives and latest processors. Try installing
it on a five year old emachine with 512mb of memory and a 2ghz celeron cpu.
ii) Symantec are *heavy* regular advertisers

Primarily because of advertising revenue. Reviews from PC rags mean
dick.

Maybe it is a new feature of NIS 2009, new usenet security features.

Sorry about the multiple posts.  I'm using the new Windows Live Mail 3.0
beta and this is the first time I've seen this crazy behavior.

Regarding NIS 2009 and NAV 2009 all I hear from you critics is you don't
"believe" the positive reviews are credible or you don't "believe" it will
run well on older computers.  How about providing some credible information
that supports your negative opinions?

Thanks but condolences are not needed.  How about we each use the software
we prefer and be happy? - that's called celebrating diversity which I think
is better than empty criticism.  And what about actually getting "on topic"?
The OP asked specifically for comments from people with hands-on experience
with NAV 2009.

Only problem with that is they are an extremely rare species.  And a tad
on the brain dead side of the equation......(G)

Ummm, Bill.  It wasn't me that said that.......it was Victek.  Just to
clarify things.  I wouldn't use Norton if it was the ONLY aV left.

Re: Norton Antivirus 2009




Hi Charliec-
Yeah, I know you wanted to know about NAV2009, but also check out
NIS2009.
Vicktek is correct, but if you have another Norton product NIS2009 will
uninstall it for you and a reboot will be required. No problem, though.

I just put NIS2009 on a desktop and found it much better than the
NIS2008, which I loaded last year to replace the slow, bulky and
frustrating NIS2007. Faster install than '08, much faster updates and a
bit faster scans. The file is much smaller than '08 and uses far less
resources. (NIS2008 brought an old Sempron XP laptop to its knees-had to
uninstall it and go with AVG 7.5 Free.)
I think the main panel is a bit fancy, but there's lots of choices to
tweak to your liking. I hate to sound pro-Norton, but if you want
Norton, NIS2009 is much better than their previous versions. The stores
are just about giving away the old NIS2008, but don't do it! There are
plenty of sales and rebates around for the new NIS2009. Check out
Frys.com.

You may be interested to know that the license keys that comes with previous
versions work with the 2009 versions.  You can download the trial-ware 2009
product and then use a key from a 2008 product to register.
