Default Norton Internet Securiity

When I bought my motherboard, it came with Norton Internet Security 2005...for 60 days period. Is it worth to use, because it used to do me good before!

Norton should come with a warning on the front label: Install at your own risk... with a big skull and crossbones
No, it's not worth your time. Any free program is better than Norton.
It'll use resources, that you'll need for other things.... like surfing the Web.

I would use AVG Free and Zone Alarm that does a better job.

I've been using NIS 2005 for 9 months and it works great for me. I've used Norton NIS for 4 years.............No problems and it's caught numerous virus's and attacks. I use several other Norton applications(Ghost, Partition magic, etc) and I"ve had NO problems with any of them.
I have friends that have been nailed using either Zone alarm or AVG while I'm smiling all the way.
IMHO NIS is getting a bad rap............

I used Norton and didn't like it. Then I used McAfee and it was OK but when my year subscription ended I started using AVG for free. Along with Ad-Aware I haven't had any problems.
