Final summing up


Forum Editor

We're approaching the end of our planned testing schedule, and we'll bring things to a close fairly soon - probably late on Wednesday evening (14th January) or Thursday.

It would be very helpful if you could each make a single post, summing up your overall impression of the beta software you've been testing. By now you should have a pretty good idea about how you feel with regard to this version of Norton 360 - are you looking forward to your free one year licence, or will you be resuming the use of whatever security software you were using before you started the test?

Please tell it as it is - the idea of this test (apart from providing you with what we hope has been an interesting experience) is to provide Symantec with some quality feedback on their new product.

If you like the beta, the version we have all used is build 61, once that is completed goto norton and download the newer build 110.


Go here: click here

And after filling the form (you must do it by every build!), you can get the new setup package (N360-BETA2.exe)

i suggest waiting till our PCA one has expired first to fully conform to our testing agreement with peter.

I think our testing with PC Advisor is up now anyway isn't it, weren't we only meant to run it for a week? I'm sure there will be no problem in upgrading to the new Beta version if you so wish.

you have fulfilled any obligation you had to us as far as participating in the test forum goes. Symantec has access to all your feedback, and if you want to add anything further please feel free to do so.

Protecting your computer is obviously something that is a priority, and you must use your own judgment to decide what you do next.

We'll be arranging for free Norton 360 licences to be sent to everyone who contributed to the test forum, and you'll be notified about that in due course, when the launch version of the product is ready.

you would need to delete the beta first then instal 360 v3 final.

i would say yes as you would get a new key with the disc/download.

Thanks sunnystaines.
FE can you confirm that what sunnystaines says is correct and when will we get the final version as maybe the beta version will expire before then,so therefor will not be up todate after expiry with the latest definitions?

I know we are at the end of testing but feel I must give a final comment, all I have give this product is praise but now that test is over I get problems, on start up I am getting many pop up boxes advising about back up, can't stop them, and a red exclamation mark in my system tray which refers to low back up storage space, I have hard drive ticked for this with 70gb available, I am baffled, but hey, it's my only real gripe.
