I'm just wondering who here has upgraded to NIS 2011. I'm just about ready to take the plunge and download it myself. I was just wondering what you think of it so far.
I'm running Windows XP SP3 and NIS 2010 so I'm sure the upgrade will be rather uneventful. Also, how quick is the boot time with NIS 2011. I remember the boot time with NIS 2009 was really quick while NIS 2010 was somewhat slower.
Feel free to post your success or horror story.

Just upgraded now so I did.
I like the look of it and it seems to be going well. I like the FaceBook utility on it.

Which System Works do you have? If you have the Standard or the Premier versions, it would also include NAV 2009 or earlier. Therefore there would be a conflict of NAV parts. I don't know if you can install just the Utilities part of System Works without the NAV that goes along with it. The key for System Works might have to be entered in the NAV 2009 part which you can't install.
Success always occurs in private and failure in full view.

I've been using NIS 2011 for only 2 hours at this point, but I'm VERY HAPPY with it so far. When I'm navigating the 2011 screens, the response seems faster than 2010. I use Identity Safe and that seems much quicker. I'm curious to see if scanning time is faster. I'll have to try a full scan and see.

It is much easier, faster updated than last year. I am very happy that the Hungarian language, the program is completed. Very good, great job! Thanks, Symantec employees!

floplot - Have Systemworks 12 - (2009). Standard.
NAV 2011 had me remove Systemworks to allow NAV2011.
I showed Systemworks 12 as 'activated'. before.
I had upgraded NAV to 2010 - as Systemworks did seperate installs for NAV and 'Systemworks', it was possible to treat NAV as a standalone.
There seemed to be a choice to keep a few of the Utilities in Systemworks - but I could not get the 2011 to install until I took out all of Systemworks.. may be a glitch or I hit some wrong buttons.
You may be right - that I may not be able to activate Systemworks if I reinstall.
Maybe I should consider Norton Utilities...??
