the 2006 norton IS version does seem to make things run slower, but I like the new features.
Of course, this is coming from a novice. I know most of the experienced users don't like Norton. Tom.
It would appear that the majority of the complaints have to do with NIS 2005. That's only one product from Symantec. I have used Norton SystemWorks since I first learned of it from my computer consultant back in 1995 and have loved it. It has resolved many registry issues, cleans my computer of the daily garbage that collects, has been a proven anti-virus protection, etc. etc. HOWEVER, the last version I put on any of my computers was 2004. I actually bought it in early 2005 and got a sale price on it. I have never experienced any of the problems talked about in this forum, the heavy use of memory, the slowdown, seeing Word and Excel as viruses, etc. None of that. My 2004 subscription just expired, and I need to update. So, has anyone tried anything from norton as 2006 version?
