Now that you have downloaded and installed the Norton software, how are things generally - have you noticed any differences in the way your machine and/or other software performs?

It seems to run without any bother. No better or worse than any other programme of it's like.

I've been mostly using Microsoft's Security Essentials Free version (and also AVG free version to clear the stuff the Essentials can't) in recent years. MS Essentials as day to day protection, because it seemed to have less impact on system performance than any other software I've tried. But this version of Norton seems very good for its performance impact during . Very good indeed.

Not seen any real difference it has told me a couple of times that Chrome is using a high amount of memory 75meg. I also like that today I left the machine running for a couple of hours without using it and when I then went back to it I was told that the tuneup was performed successfully.

I have noticed very little effect on the Win XP machine that I installed it on. No performance issues, and no effect on any other program. I haven't used the Win 7 machine enough to give a full answer yet, but have noticed nothing yet! (That Win 7 machine doesn't have much software on at the moment, being a fresh install.)

Last night I noticed there was a 70mb download (update). Luckily I was connected with mobile broadband USB modem. My other dial-up connection would be unsuitable for such a download.The update, the previous day was 1.8mb which was ok.

What was that big 70mb update all about?

ventad - I have not noticed that problem with ID safe, but I shall keep checking now that you have given a heads up.

However, I do have another problem with ID safe. Whenever I use a log in for the first time it adds that site to what I assume is a frequently used list. I would like to be able to sort that list alphabetically, but have not yet worked out how to do so.

I have had a problem with Backup Online using the default settings, it collects the data OK but then stops and I get the message "Symantic Service Framework has stopped working" I have got round the problem by unticking all the default settings except Other Files, then choosing what I want to backup.
