Updating norton 360 2016 to 2016
The maintenance was nice, but honestly, I have other programs that do that same thing, and do them better (I use a free program, Glary Utilities for all my computer upkeep).
So, in looking for a new product, I personally decided to focus JUST on an Internet Security product, and not the “kitchen sink”.
But then, as I’ve already mentioned, the big change came with the dropping of Norton 360, the Symantec company changing it’s focus, and the release of the new Norton Security products.
It was for all these reasons that I decided to re-evaluate the Internet Security options and make a personal change.
at least as long as you pay for the yearly subscription. Although it’s almost impossible to check what the Norton 360 renewal subscription price is without having Norton 360 on your computer, I checked the subscription renewal prices before I uninstalled Norton 360 last year, and here is what I found…Those prices may now be lower (in 2016), but even so, considering that I can purchase an entirely new Internet security product from someone else for as little as .00, that’s a lot of money for one year of just getting definition updates!
However, when your virus definition subscription runs out, you’ll still have to renew it with Symantec if you want to continue using Norton 360. Second, no longer getting updated “core components” bothers me, especially since protection technology is always improving as new security threats appear. it might be time for you to move on to something else when your subscription is up. In 2015, when the “first versions” of the new “Norton Security” products were released, most of the reviews on the product were less than stellar.
And although I didn’t give it my top review, one company’s program made a big impression on me…. I didn’t give Kaspersky my top review that year because frankly, way back then the company was just becoming known in the Anti-Virus world, and their interface was really cumbersome to use.
It only gives you Anti-Virus and Anti-Malware protection, but along with your Windows Firewall, should provide enough security for most basic Internet users.
I’m also a fan of Bitdefender Antivirus Free Edition (CLICK HERE to visit their site, Hopefully, I’ve answered some of your questions about Norton 360, and maybe a few others about Internet Security in general.
It’s a decent antivirus program with a small footprint that doesn’t seem to slow my computers down. As always, I would love to hear your comments about the subject.
As I looked through the reviews for this year, I saw again that Kasperskys programs had high ratings, and in looking through their site and materials, was impressed by what they offered (CLICK HERE to visit Kaspersky.com), and how much nicer and easier to use their program interface was.
But along with Kasperskys, I also noticed that Bitdifender had worked its way up many of the “top” lists, and since they had a free version, I gave it a try on one of my computers for a few months.
