1-0 out of 5 stars Avoid
Overpriced and underpowered..... This software is more annoying then anything else. You practically have to turn off every setting to get your networked printers and network games to work, for example.

1-0 out of 5 stars A poorly designed product
It took me a day to install this product. If you do choose to use this product be sure to uninstall all other norton virus and internet security products even tho the instructions say that norton 2003 is uninstalled automatically--it isin't!! My computer now crashes frequently since I began using this product. My advice is to stay clear of this product until they get it fixed. One other point--don't count on getting any technical help form Symantec--they don't even have decent free help installing the product let alone using it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Stay as far away from this as you can....
I recommended this for my father based on my experience with previous versions. I wish I'd done some research first....

My father installed it on his desktop (a Dell running WinME) without any problems. When the system asked him to reboot, he said he'd do it later because it was late, and simply shut down the computer. The next morning he discovered the worst.

When he tried to boot up the computer, it started booting up normally, but when it got to his desktop, that's all he got - a blank desktop. No icons, no start menu, nothing. In fact, CTRL-ALT-DEL shows that nothing is running. Weird huh? Even weirder is that when he tried to go into 'Safe Mode', the exact same thing happens. I'm not sure what NIS 2004 did to his computer, but nothing short of reinstalling his entire system would get it to boot up.

Now comes the fun part - Symantec Technical Support and Customer Service. They don't exist. The only free tech support they have is email based, and run by people in India, who apparently don't speak English. I sent them email after email telling them that the system wouldn't boot up, and every time the sent back replies telling me to go to the 'Start Menu' and go here and there and do this and that. The just didn't get the fact that I couldn't load Windows.

So, I thought I'd give them a call to complain about the terrible tech support. I looked up their number on the internet and called. I got routed around the country to different phone systems, and then sat on hold for over two hours before I finally got frustrated enough to hang up and write the Better Business Bureau. Needless to say, I won't be installing this product on my own computer, and unless Symantec makes some major changes to the base program, won't be buying any more of their products.

If you're a computer guru, you might be able to get it to work, in which case this is a good program. The problem is, I'm a computer guru, and I couldn't make it work...

1-0 out of 5 stars Waste of Money
This software won't allow my computer to access the internet. No email gets through. All web pages are inaccessible. When the problem first occurred, I disabled the software to go to Symantec's website and followed Symantec's automated online instructions to configure it. This fixed the problem for the rest of that day, but then the problem recurred the next time I rebooted. Symantec's human tech support is $30 per incident! Why should I throw bad money after good? I'm writing this off as a $40 mistake. You're better off with a $40 router and/or some freeware security software. Norton Anti-Virus may be pretty good, but the rest of this Internet Security package sucks.

1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed in California
I have been a Norton Internet Security user for years with total satisfaction. Upgrading to the 2004 version has nearly destroyed my Microsoft Outlook - it took hours to get back my previous Emails and more importantly my Address Book. It is still not as it was, but at least I can see everything. My Freecell is totally unusable. Also having problems with Word. The Symantec website has many articles to read to 'fix' what is broken by uploading the product. Too bad they didn't put as much effort into fixing it. I'm deleting this version from my computer and moving to something that will work! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Read INSTRUCTIONS for Successful Installation!
I had formerly had Norton 2003 on my HP Pavillion Pentium 4 2.53GHz with 512MB. That worked fine. I wrote another review stating how I needed to do something after an accidental McAfee Virus Scan corrupted my registry of my Norton 2003, so without protection I had to do something quick for my computers safety and my own peace of mind.

My computer had been so far gone, due to many deletions I had made, and not learning to leave things alone. I had just installed MSN Premium for my DSL and nothing was working correctly at all. I had no choice after the system was running haywire and doing nothing right, but to do a complete destructive recovery on my HP. For anyone who has ever had to start from scratch, well it was not easy. Luckily the great feature of HP is your D recovery drive. You can turn back time and make the computer once again, brand new.

After taking on the daunting task of re-installing every patch from microsoft update, all my former internet software, printers, and well, EVERYTHING, all over again, it was time for Norton to be re-installed too.

I had bought the 2004 version after the initial destruction of my Norton 2003 from that useless free McAfee Virus Scan that does NOTHING, but that installation of the 2004 was lost when I did the recovery. I was able to redownload from the site, where I purchased it, as they let you do that two times more in 60 days of purchase, which is great in my opinion. You just need the info they send in the email when you purchase. I saved a copy to the desktop too so it is always there, and I got the backup disc too. I was able to install this and run it flawlessly ever since with no problems at all.

I think alot of you that are having a problem with your Norton 2004 software is that you are not reading the installation document at the Symantec Site. This is crucial apparently to a successful installation. Have all of you first done the complete Defragmentation to your hard drive C as instructed? Have you cleaned out the temporary files completely? Have you removed ALL former Norton software and clean booted the computer as instructed? I did ALL of that and whatever else the instructions said to do, and my software works just great! My computer NEVER runs slower due to Norton 2004 software. Even when I am doing a complete scan and the Norton is running in another window, I can surf super fast, play games or whatever, with no glitches, no freezes, no PROBLEMS at all. I had some pictures sent to me, and Norton even detected a malicious script and blocked it after asking me, very efficiently, and logged it. It finds any spyware very quickly, live update works great too. My email is not supported by this program, clearly stated by Norton, but it DOES find anything in the email before it gets to my drives anyway, so in that case, works just fine. I cannot understand all the problems and complaints here, and hope that my words can help some others. I was afraid to buy this because I read my fellow reviewers thoughts and have respect for other opinions always, but this time I must disagree.

On the subject of customer service, it is great. Online support wrote me at least 10 times in reference to every single question I asked. The first reponse took a few days, but the next several emails came fast. They included links to the site with all appropriate information I needed, which was informative and helpful to me. One email had the instructions to install Norton 2004.

Not only was the tech support helpful, they gave me a FULL YEAR extension, ON THE HOUSE for all my troubles and for re-purchasing an upgrade with Norton as I lost some of my old subscription time on my 2003 which was good until 9/2004. They made the time up to me, and then some.

Bottom line is, this is excellent software with NO defects, NO freezes, NO slowing the machine down in the least, NO crashes, NO re-activations, NO rebooting, NO PROBLEMS!

If you are having this trouble, I would suggest you go read the document at the site, how to install Norton 2004 and clean boot the computer. If you unistall and reinstall once more the right way, you may just get a far more positve experience out of Norton Antivirus 2004. Good luck cyberfriends!

1-0 out of 5 stars What a ripoff!
The problems began when the installation froze, stretching installation time to a whopping five hours! Once the software was finally installed, it encountered an "internal error" which could be "addressed" at the Symantec website. Unfortunatly, however, the technical support link is non-existent. Literally, "www.symantec.com/techsupp" DOES NOT EXIST!!! This also renders live updates impossible. Of course, this issue could probably be resolved on the phone during the work week for the low price of 30 bucks. Instead, I'll just trash this piece of crap and spend 40 bucks on PC-Cillin 2004. Buyer beware!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Interesting provider of non-costly software
That was an OEM and I didn't expect more than a CD-ROM. Nisofts provided me with a Norton Antivirus 2004, which was installed flawlessly. They reacted fast to Amazon order and they shipped the software fast. They deserve five stars.

4-0 out of 5 stars Best antivirus I have tried
I have tried other antiviruses, and I have found this one to be the best, not giving me false detections of infection of vital files, and easy to use.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't install this product unless you want endless trouble
Purchased this product and received and installed it on July 10, 2004. Took 6 hours to install, have it not work, uninstall and then diagnose problems etc. Endless little hassles and it makes me think this product was not yet ready for release, but the company wanted to start people out on it so they could cash in. I previously had Norton Internet Security 2003 and wanted to upgrade to 2004 Professional as it advertised the spyware and keystroke logging interception. Well the 2003 version worked ok, but now it is gone with the wind, replaced by this new one. If I had known how much trouble it would be, I would have kept what worked and not tried this new one. I have Windows XP and you must uninstall the XP hotfix patches, install the Antivirus, then reinstall the patches. What a headache! Well I think I have it working now but my system is running very slow, and there may be repercussions. Also, the instructions on the Symantec website for problem resolution will have you going in circles! Buyer beware. Maybe they will improve this product at a later date. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Slow proxy servers and flawed wireless security feature
I bought this program for the wireless security feature that lets you encrypt the data sent via your laptop's wireless signal to Anonymizer's servers. I thought this would be a useful security feature when accessing bank accounts and other sensitive information from my laptop computer. Unfortunately, Anonymous Surfing does not work with banking websites since they are unable to place a valid security certificate (remember, the traffic is being routed via Anonymizer's proxy servers, so the website cannot place the certificate on your computer). For that reason, I can only access banking websites with Anonymous Surfing turned off, which in my eyes defeats one of the most important purposes for having a wireless security feature.

Another gripe is that Anonymous Surfing will slow down the speed at which webpages are loaded, which is particularly noticeable with a broadband internet connection. I guess Anonymizer's proxy servers are just not able to relay pages quickly enough to your computer.

Given that the program REQUIRES AN ANNUAL SUBSCRIPTION FEE of $29.99 (first year of service is included witht he program), I'll rather save that money and continue to access my banking and financial websites via a wired connection. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars STAY AWAY FROM THIS ONE!!!
Unfortunately I couldn't rate this product as ZERO. From the time I installed this software on my computer, it started acting strangely: computer freezes, crashes, etc. To top this off it directed me to a bogus Microsoft Update site. Eventually, I couldn't even access my ISP. Needless to say, I uninstalled this crap from my computer right away. But who's to say that I won't continue to have problems in the near future. This is what happens when you install products from shady characters. Pay no attention to the positive feedback on this product, but if you are a gambler and can afford to destroy your computer of sacrifice your security, then go on ahead and install this on your system. Be forewarned, however, that your risk will be high.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent AV, easy-to-use interface, with phone support!
Now, almost all AVs program are memory suckers! Among Norton, McAfee and other AVs, Pc-cillin is least sucker! So, think twice before you upgrade your AV or try something else instead of purchasing a update if you are running a old pc like me.
I guess, all AVs developers are running new PCs like Intel P4 3Gz on Windows XP, and expecting everyone to upgrade your pc sooner or later.
In general, pc-cillin is easy-to-use in interface, with free phone support. McAfee has only internet support while norton charges for phone support.
I was using McAfee since 2000, and never satisfied with their product. I was forced to switch to Pc-cillinwhen I purchased McAfee 2005 upgrade because it sucked all my RAMs. Also, because of my out-of-dated McAfee firewall, hacker penetrated my McAfee 2005 upgrade and stole my password, blocked me from receiving any further update from McAfee server. McAfee has the worst update mechanism, and I must set internet explorer to accept ActiveX and cookies(which let the hacker to control my machine easily),then login first to their McAfee server in order to receive upgrade. So, the hacker got my McAfee password, free update right for a year, and I was left unprotected at all. No wonder, I heard lots of people can get free McAfee AV updates year after year even though they need to login first to McAfee server.
Pc-cillin do updates like Norton simple and direct!!!
The only thing I would like pc-cillin to add on is something like McAfee Visual Trace so that I can easily identify the intruders instead of a IP address.
Antispy is also weak, neither do Norton, McAfee and other AVs.
It is so far an excellent AV product in the market.

1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible
I had high hopes for this product,the newest version of PC-Cillin.
It effectively had it all from the virus protection,spam/spyware protection,a firewall,and more.
I have used older versions of PC Cillin from the very early #3 Version right up through to the 2000 version.It was up until that time the best anti virus software I had ever used.I loved its' ease of use,it didn't used much computer resource and ran in the background doing its' job admirably catching more than a few unwanted visitors over time.
As soon as I installed this program(full,with all options) it immediately had the effect of slowing EVERYTHING in my system down to a crawl as well as at times freezing it(especially when updating the pattern file).It also wouldn't allow various functions to run especially the ScanDisk.The program also seemed to be constantly writing to the drive for some reason or rather,you could clearly hear the indicative "grinding"...so much for this version using little resource and running quietly in the background.I knew immediately this wasn't the "good old days".
I uninstalled it and re-installed the so-called "light" version(just the basic real-time scan anti virus feature-which in itself is kind of a waste considering everything that this program has built into it) to see if that would change anything.Not a chance.
I run Windows 98 and have a 1.2GB P3 chip with about 384 of RAM.
My system flies and I had never experienced such a "slowing" on my system until this moment.The blurb for the product on Amazon AND on the package states it's supposed to run on such a system as mine.
From the get-go I was in immediate contact with Trend Micro "support" both on the phone AND through days of back and forth e-mails.Firstly DO NOT expect the person on the other end to know sweet diddly about.....well,anything( I went through about four different people with no difference).They all want YOU to work for THEM by creating a so called 'debug log' and send it to them,who in turn will pass it on to their tech department.They will tell you that they will analyze the data and get back to you within (first day,actual answer)"three hours" or (second day)"before the end of the day" or third day,well you get the idea.They never did get back.No amount of pestering by phone or email could get any concrete answers.
One of the last things I was able to get from one operator was that thereappeared to be no apparent conflict on my system but they didn't know what could be causing my problem and they were still working on it.
I eventually had to get off the "merry-go-round" and give up.
In the end it screwed my system up so much(with so many installs and un-installs and taking out other unrelated programs to see if they would have any effect good or bad) that I had to eventually wipe my hard drive and start fresh.It is now back functioning the way it was before, and the "problem"?.....well I guess PC-Cillin is still "working on it".I have never heard back.Some "support" eh?
I phoned Amazon and explained the situation and they graciously,as ever, offered a refund on the product.I have indeed taken them up on the offer with many thanks and returned the product.
In conclusion if you have a Win/98 system I would advise EXTREME caution if you intend to get this product.Not only for what the product has done to MY system and could do to yours but for the deplorable LACK OF SUPPORT for the product.Due to this very unpleasant experience I will NEVER buy or use another Trend product ever again.
As for others with Win/2000 and higher? I honestly cannot say whether it will or will not work on your system but please for your own sakes be absolutely certain before you purchase this.Better safe than sorry. ... Read more
