I just wanted to relay my experience with the Norton utilities beta. On the whole I'm very impressed with the app. All the functions I have tried work well.
However it does seem to on average utilise around 4-5% of battery usage on my HTC Desire HD (froyo 2.2.1) when using the norton widget. I think in the long term if I am to adopt this app it would have to become more lightweight.

We are working on a design change right now that should have an impact on that. One question I have is how frequently do you use the widget?

That is good to hear, thanks.
I don't have the widget on my mainscreen (not sure if that impacts?) but I generally use it about once/twice per day.
At the moment the application is running as a service at 0% load with 18.2mb in RAM (according to Watchdog) and at 4% of battery usage according to the battery manager.
