Will it be hard to uninstall this when time is up?

No, just remove via control panel. if not, use symnrt.exe to remove.

I use MS Security Essentials. No expiration, and no cost (for anyone with a business under 10 computers). Reviews seem to give it similar marks to paid products.

I can't figure out where to download DSGi_NISNETBOOK_17.0_OEM180_20990888.exe. where is this? Can someone post a link?

I found no link for the download, too. So maybe we have to ask cloudgiveaway's servicer for help.

Looks like someone notified symantec and they killed the link.

Ok this is going to be hard.

Ty op.

Free is always good. But be careful with Norton Internet Security if you use the Chrome browser. Norton 2011 worked perfectly for me and then I got the 2012 version and it has been a bear since day one. They have some "Confidential" plug-in that makes Chrome hang and crash (especially if you open multiple windows). Doesn't happen all the time, but enough (every other day) to be a major pain. Norton blames Google and Google just ignores Norton because, well Chrome is the world's biggest browser so it's not their problem to fix the code for Norton.

It's been going on forever. Here's the Norton support thread that started in September 2011 and is now 36 pages long with no resolution. The only workaround that seems to work is to disable the plugin in the Chrome settings. It's highly annoying to say the least.

Here's a 90 day version of NIS 2012

I never use the norton plugins. They are unnecessary. Just disable them.

Some people, though, say the plug-in keeps coming back. While a lot like the safe site feature for search results. And when you disable "Confidential" that disappears. All this didn't happen in NIS 2011 and Norton acknowledges it's a problem, but won't do anything but blame Google. It just reflects poorly on Norton. It reminds me of years ago when Norton was always the fastest and cleanest anti-virus program out there and then it become bloated and slow. I switched for a couple years but came back for 2010 and 2011 with no problems whatsoever. But no more, at least with Chrome. And I like Chrome better than Norton.

In past years, NIS has been FAR when the upcoming year's version was introduced in the Fall. I prefer to wait and see if that happens again this year. It would be much cheaper than having to pay to extend coverage after the free 6 months are up.

Plus IMO it does a better job of detecting suspicious activity even if no virus is detected.

Just be sure to wait until close to expiration before using it.

I would go with Webroot . I have tried them all, and Webroot is the most effective. It is free if you go through ebates or 75 percent off with Fat Wallet.
