http://forums.techpowerup.com/showpost.php?p=1332878&postcount=31

i have run Vista SP2 Beta and NOD32 4.0 nothing is broken, must be YOU that brakes it
btw Vista SP2 is still BETA

and guess what NOD32 4.0 works flawlessly on Windows 7 Beta to

if you compare norton 2009 with Eset NOD32/Smart Security 4.0, norton is still bloated
http://www.neowin.net/forum/lofiversion/index.php/t745024.html

and from the official forums eset uses for support
http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=235345

know your FACTS b4 you start blathering on about stuff.

also norton AV is not bloated anymore, it uses FAR LESS resorces then nod32(less memory and cpu) currently, nod was pulling in 34-75mb ram use across its services on average for me, norton/sep pulls around 12mb doing a drive scan or when im moving a bunch of files around, again know your FACTS b4 you start spouting BS about stuff you havent tested yourself.

idle when im just sufing the net and such norton/sep uses about 2.5mb ram.......nod was alwase at 34mb or more with the latist EAV built pre v4.

oh yeah, and enjoy the links, they should inform you that you need to apologize to darknova.


EDIT: adding more links for you wiak

nod32 v4 crashes servers including server 2003.

Edit: adding more norton 2009/sep11 links and info.

http://www.antivirusware.com/norton-antivirus/
some of the highlights will be quoted.

3) PERFORMANCE

3a) Virus Scanner:

Norton has both a Quick Scan and Full System Scan. On our test computer with 77GB of used space on its hard-drive it took Norton 24 seconds to perform its Quick Scan, while the Full System Scan took 57 minutes. This does seem long for Full System Scan, however, Norton 2009 has a remedy for long scan times with its new Norton Insight.

Norton Insight identifies trusted files on your computer that do not require scanning (Whitelisting), thus scanning times are greatly shortened. For example, on our test computer (77GB used space) with Norton Antivirus 2009 installed on it, a Full System Scan was reduced to just over 8 minutes from 57 minutes before Norton Insight was run - an 85% reduction in scanning time. This improvement puts Norton's scanning times at the top of its class with short and effective scans. A great improvement over the 2008 version.

3b) System Resource Usage:

According to Trusted Reviews, Norton 2009 is 75% smaller file-size than McAfee, and uses 74% less memory than Kaspersky, both Norton's nearest competitors in each respected area. Norton 2009 is head and shoulders above its competition with their new, slimmer and slicker Norton Antivirus.
and the best part that pretty much slaps your bloated theory around.

5) CONCLUSION:

Norton Antivirus 2009 is a dramatic improvement over previous versions. Norton's old versions were known to be computer resource hogs in the Tech community. However, Norton has addressed these concerns with their 2009 version - it's now the fastest scanning, and uses the least system memory of any of its major competitors (including Kaspersky, NOD32, McAfee, Trend, BitDefender and others).
please read other peoples posts b4 you go off and distribute false information.

norton now uses LESS resorces then nod32, kaspersky or any other major compeditor(or minor one from my testing recently)

fact is, symantec(norton) has totaly changed, dont beleve it, try it your self, and if you are unwilling to try it, dont post FUD, you could cause somebody else to make a mistake, like paying more for nod32 or kaspersky then it would cost to get norton2009(2008 and older suck, thats not in question at all, but 2009 rocks)

i have seen norton 2009 3 pc licences for 25bucks on some sites, u gotta download the installer but thats nothing to hard is it?(who wants an out dated install cd anyway?)

if u just want cheap, f-prot is like 25bucks for 5 pc's and offers good protection, the newer 6 versions arent as light as the older versions tho so they arent ideal for slower systems when compared to norton2009.

Im sure if I dig around enought I find even better deals on norton, but why bother...

if you just want cheaper, get antivir its free and gets a great avcomparitives rating.

as to norton vs nod vs kaspersky, norton just made the better av THIS TIME, nod32 v4 is buggy on alot of systems, kaspersky...well i just didnt like it, it wasnt horrible, but it wasnt "totaly kickass" either.

I was one of the biggist norton haters out there, as a tech i have had to manualy remove older versions enought that....well it gets old...

McAfee sucks horribly. I've yet to see it be effective. Pretty sad when you scan the system and it comes back "clean" even though the system isn't acting right, then install a free AV like AVG and even before updating it detects viruses :rolleyes:

yeah. from what I've seen. all McAfee does, is slow down the systems.
