This is something I want too, currently the anti-spam add-on on Vista is a rudderless ship which can not be controlled if you use Windows Mail. You can not tell it additional stuff that should be classed as SPAM and conversly you can not tell it it mis-identified something as SPAM. As a result, I have had to turn it off.
Whilst the 2009 product is a vast improvement on 2008 this lack of proper anti-SPAM support on Vista, which for someone who on average receives 150 SPAMs a day is the most important feature of Norton Internet Security, is probably going to result in my not renewing my NIS 2009 when it expires in three weeks and my moving to a competitive product after almost ten years using Norton. I hope this is corrected for NIS 2010.

my cousin said that he dint use norton and used avg because there is a " Link scanner " in avg....you might want to inclue that.
If you mean to make sure Web Links are not leading to a Fake Web Site: symantec has this for N.I.S. 2009; it is called Norton Safe Web, currently in Beta, so I would wait until it is Released to the public before going ahead and Downloading and Installing as it may cause problems with your computer.

Hello there, I want to say my suggestions about Norton 2010 products....
First of all I want to see "Restore to... " and 'Rescan object" options in quarantine, I always missed these features in all Norton products...
Second one: today I found very interesting program, that replaces UAC in Vista with more clever and non-disturbing one.... I found it very interesting, because UAC is very annoyng for me.... and I think will be good idea to inegrate such feature in NIS 2010 product... we all know that Norton Insight already detects clean files and dont scan them... so why not detect what file is clean and dont't show UAC automatically analyzing it?Here is information about this product and please pay attention on it: http://www.replaceuac.com/
Symantec has released a smarter, more user-friendly UAC replacement under the Norton Labs initiative. Please see http://www.nortonlabs.com/inthelab/uac.php. Any feedback you have would be greatly appreciated.

Well.. I already know it and use UAC tool, but I was very surprised when I heard about it, because, when I wrote this post, I had not idea if Symantec is already working on it :)
What about features I also wrote in this post? for me "Restore to... " and 'Rescan object" options in quarantine is also VERY important...

I really believe that NIS2010 should have the same feature set as 2009. What you really need to focus on is detection. Several working keygens and cracks slipped through Norton, including a crack for Norton itself! On virustotal I scanned the crack for Norton several weeks ago. I think that 2/32 scanners caught it and labeled as suspicious. Now, I scan on virustotal and 10/32 scanners have flagged it, not including Symantec!
What is going on!?!
