Now that you've installed the software, and have it running (I hope) on your computer, have you noticed any problems with your other software, or with the way your computer is running generally?

I didn't check my emails (Hotmail) very often because I always had to wait at least 30 seconds for messages to open.

Now...what a difference! Two seconds..MAX!

The norton plug in for chrome has crashed a couple of times since installation, browsing is noticeably slower than was the case with eset security suite, boot up and seems to take a shade longer and general usage seems slower too. W7 64 bit

Have been doing more tests on web pages not opening quickly enough and found there was a confliction with TRUSTEER (banks web page security) turned off trusteer and the pages opened quicker but then turned off Norton web browser protection and the pages opened immediatly. Turned on norton web browser protection again slowed down again. But not as much as when Trusteer was operating alongside NWP. So have left NWBP off along with Trusteer so that pages open immediatley.

A lot of quality feedback here, thank you.

As this is a very important aspect of running any new software I'll let the thread run for a day or so before starting another.

Have been comparing Safe Web operations between Firefox and IE using the PCA site and some others. The initial opening of the web page is about the same but the complete downloading of all of the contents of the page is significantly longer with Firefox.

I have also noticed that when Norton is opened to 'Home' there is a green box on the left indicating 'secure'. This box also indicates CPU Usage, System, Norton and Trust level. The actual details are not always displayed and left blank. As is the case now but when first opened today it was populated.

No problems with IE9 here, in fact it's probably faster than Firefox when using Norton!

My IE9 works just as before loading Norton.

No problems on IE9 but Norton did not seem to like Trusteer Rapport on first use of the latter. Web pages opened slowly but today that problem has eased but not quite gone away
