Norton anti-virus vs. Norton internet security

Hi,

    I have had Norton Internet Security for at least a year and a half, no problems with it, liked the original interface better, but doesn't effect security. I see these are grouped together in the forums, any reason they don't have their own separate section and what are the basic differences, because NIS costs about twice as much?

     Thanks,

            Jim

Hi, Jim. NIS has the two way basically set and forget firewall. Most other features are the same.

FWIW, I've always run NIS, as I believe Norton's firewall to be more secure than the Windows firewall.

Do shop around on the Internet for legitimate authorized distributors like Amazon and you will see prices usually very much lower than direct from Norton who can't undercut their other distributors ....

NIS $33 NAV $34 ..... You can download and get the key direct or you can buy a boxed set (but the disk will be very out of date).
