Just saying Hi !

Hi there

            Just an introduction from a new forum member. Having been a "Norton " user across the many and varied products that Norton has provided over the years...I started way back with "Norton Commander " which many "old hands" remember with great affection !

I admit that I deserted Norton after a raft of issues in the "mid nineties " ...and I totally ignored all Norton products for a long time !

After some recent disappointment with trials of various security packages from many vendors...I decided to come back to Norton after reading some very positive reviews on various "Tech sites" .

Best move I have ever made ! I firmly believe in credit where it is due....and as far as I am concerned ...the new Norton Internet Security 2011 is an absolute triumph !


I have used the web since the early days ...and have seen the huge changes in all aspects of online security and the proliferation of the vast number of new threats that threaten us all at present .

For what it is worth......in my opinion , the NIS 2011 is one of the best tools available today ....Out of the box..it offers a great level of security for beginners...and for us who have been "at it" for a few years longer...the amount of detailed info and configuration options available is great !

No...I don't work for Norton....but I believe in admitting that my "biased negativity " was based on some outdated views ...which Norton has now addressed totally !

All the issues that caused my desertion to other companies products ....and all the old problems that a lot of users encountered in the past have vanished !

The program is a treat to install and configure....and I'll end my ramble by stating that I'm happy I took note of the reviews I read ........Thanks Symantec......you have converted a "non believer" ....great product....great interface.....and great performance all round ! Looking forward to regular visits to the community...

Regards.........bleeper24
