How good is Symantec Endpoint Protection?

by rfalanga / January 21, 2010 5:00 AM PST

I've heard that Norton's antivirus software has been a resource hog for a number of years. Now we're looking at Symantec Endpoint Protection. I'd like to know how good it is, and if it better at handling resources than Norton has in the past?

I don't have any first-hand knowledge of SEP. Hopefully, those who are familiar with the product, will respond. In the meantime, I found a site where user's have given their opinions. It may (or may not) help. When looking for information about a product, I like to visit their forum, to if user's are experiencing an inordinate amount of problems. I've provided both links below.

Scroll down the page, where you'll find quite a few opiniom and comments:
Symantec Endpoint Protection

And the link to Symantecs:
Endpoint Protection (AntiVirus) Forum

Best of luck to you..

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
