Thank you, everyone, for your good work on this test, and for your feedback - I'm sure that Symantec will find it very useful.

We'll draw the formal part of the test to a close now, but please feel free to continue posting to the various threads if you wish - they'll remain open for the time being, and we'll continue to monitor the content.

found the info again

"Here's a breakdown of the times:

- 7 days: subscription time for Norton 360 v4 Beta if you don't use the activation key

- 14 days: subscription time if you use the activation key received by email

- 28 days: subscription time if you activate AND use EXPRESS RENEWAL within the BETA



Additionally, you can get a new key from the Beta Center, if your subscription time has lapsed.



The "90 day" text reflects the standard duration for beta testing, and does not reflect the duration of the beta product activation.

just renewed using the beta centre option. 19 more days to go.

I agree that there are a lot of things in the prog superfluous for me but will seriously consider remaining with 360.

Thanks for the opportunity.

Firstly, Thanks to F.E. and Norton.

Well, I like it, I do. I run Kaspersky 2009 suite, and McAfee suite 2009 on computers, (along with Norton 360 from the last beta), and I guess I'll dump McAfee for the latest Norton now.

It's far, far smoother to use, much less intrusive, used much less cpu and memory, acted smarter, just more pleasurable to use.

I agree with others, I'm not sure I'd use all the features, but some may, and to have the choice there is worthwhile.

I'm not sure that it is that much better than the last Norton version, although the layout seems easier to use. It does seem better (to me) than Kaspersky or McAfee.

I've now got it telling me that I haven't scheduled the backups, and that there are several things that need my attention.

Compared to the 90 day McAFee trial that came on my netbook, I'm thinking, why is it telling me this, when the McAFee just does it and says the system is all OK when I can be bothered to look.

I don't want annoying screens telling me that I should do anything, I just want it do do for the best and keep quite about it.

Having used NOD32 before, in comparison it is just shy of measuring up. Too many box pop ups, and too many false flagging (though I'm sure, as I mentioned in another thread, this problem will be resolved with the mass uptake).

It has features I prefer to NOD32, so if it stopped the boxes coming up telling me I haven't backed up or that the file I've downloaded is safe, it would be my #1 choice.

have come a long way in improving there product over the last 8 years.

This is a product I would not have recommended in the past but now I think it beats the pants off *free* software and is a good all round package.

If someone wishes to pay for a security suite then I would recommend this one.
