The subscription runs out after 9 days.
I cannot find any problems with 360, so what happens if I want to continue using it after 9 days.

Well I certainly wouldn't pay for the full version, being that everyone taking part in this beta testing gets the fully released version for free, I would just wait and maybe switch back to your old AV for the time being.

I'll definately use the full version, it's been working like a dream for me.

Are we getting any more testing tasks? It seems to have gone all quiet since the FE removed his version! Hope he isn't sulking ;o)

I also would use the full version, as long as the price was competitive.
All in all good software

"I cannot find any problems with 360"

Im the same, i cant find any problems, its run like a dream.

Its almost to good, i don't even notice its installed half the time, no nags, updates silently and integrates perfectly with every program.

I think Norton are onto a winner with this software.

I'm thinking particularly in terms of usability and performance overhead: how do you think Norton 360 v3 compares to other brands of internet security software, or even previous Symantec products you've used?

Incidentally, I've got a call in about the nine days thing - you'll know as soon as I do.

I've got Kaspersky 2009 and McAfee 2008, both internet suite versions on other computers.

Norton is faster at scanning than either, uses less cpu than either, and from that point of view, it must be the better.

However, interface-wise, it lags behind in my opinion. Firstly, just on "looks" (which probably shouldn't matter, but do), Norton looks washed-out and old. Secondly on available information, I much prefer McAfee's main window, list of options on the left (Home, Update, Scan.... Firewall), with each of those giving a main window of options on the right. Much easier to find settings and...

That leads on to the fact that I find Norton quite difficult to navigate straight to the option I might want, some being four or so clicks away... so there are probably some settings I should have changed/learned about that I have yet to find.

Overall, I think the mechanics of the program are probably great, but the interface is lacking in star quality.
