What I Like Best About NS

My Web Browsing has never been faster with any other security product, and I have tried most of them.

It's really incomparable to others. In a class of its own.

Hoping the protection is also the best.

[Maybe it's cuz of the non-browser plugin protection, so hopefully NIS 2014 is just as fast.]

I second this.Web browsing speed has been fantastic.The proof is in the putting, as they say, when it comes to protection.The best test is of a security product is in how it keeps your machine clean,not in how it may perform on questionable tests.If your clean. Great. I strongly expect NS to perform better than it's previous iterations in terms of protection. I never thought i'd find myself truly liking a Norton product again.Another great thing, is it will only get better as they optimize it with future updates. Based on my limited experience with this version so far, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to most people.

Re: What I Like Best About NS

Of course you did not notice any long shutdown or restart issues and others am I correct??

Everything works perfectly with your system right??

I have not had an issue with startup,shutdown on my Win 8.1 machine.It's a bit slower shutting down and starting up,than with my KIS protected machine which is a mirror hardrware wise of this one.I don't place much of a huge importance,for myself,on boot/shutdown times as I don't do a lot of installing/uninstalling.I leave my pc on 24/7.

" I have not had an issue with startup,shutdown on my Win 8.1 machine"

Ok, now I'm puzzled, many people here, myself included, have noticed severe delays in startup & shutdown and you see nothing??

You must have some very special custom 8.1 builds if this issue does not affect you, or.....

" I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to most people."

Before recommend, I suggest that you read once more the threads about real issues with the current build of NS.

If many people as you suggest install it, before some things are sorted out, there will be complaints here and you'll be embarassed.

Try, all of you, to not see only the "tree" but the "forrest", if you see my point.

NS current build needs some optimizations, imho.

" NSv22 works fast like hell on my PC's!"

Yeah... right.

Do you ever, by chance, shutdown or reboot your pc's??

Nothing to observe??

Re: What I Like Best About NS

When you talk about faster, slower, delays etc etc Have you tested that with good time measurement under same circumstances or is it just intuitive. If you did measure why dont give the results here for comparison.

Re: What I Like Best About NS

I have successfully had my remaining NIS v21 days transferred to Norton Security v22 trial version. I am using Win 7 64-bit and have no slowdowns etc. But I restored my computer with a backup image made back before my old Norton was on there, so not sure if this has anything to do with the problems some are having. Though the first thing I did was to go to the Settings/Antivirus and put the "boot time protection" to aggressive. Maybe try that and reboot?

I have looked at various other antivirus/internet security and overall Norton is best for me.

"GASP" it actually is POSSIBLE some might not be seeing the restart/shutdown issue. Every system is different. So, stop trolling people and giving them a hard time just because they are NOT having the problem. I and others have submitted data to Symantec that is needed to track down this issue SOME users are having. Even though I certainly did not have to. If you are that hell bent on the product. Uninstall it and move on.

Re: What I Like Best About NS

Apostolos, I'll give you 3 guesses ! NS and NSwB, are like all Norton products. For some people they will work fine, for others they won't.

That's where forum help, and Chat Support comes in. Let's keep it courteous.

Re: What I Like Best About NS

Umm..My snappy web browsing speed may not be entirely due to NS.

I've been checking my ISP's speed tonight.

My ISP (Cox) has done some sort of system up-grade and instead of getting 60Mbs down, I'm getting some ridiculous speed of 125 Mbps,,,I have checked this with several on - line test sites as well as the DSL Reports Cox forum.
