Norton Security


Has anyone installed Norton Security on the SP3?

I had it on my Vista laptop and it messed it up to where it would not boot. I had to do a restore and get rid of Norton.

The only functionality that I want is the Contacts backup. I have my contacts backed up from my iPad and want to restore them on my SP3 (if that is possible). I was able to do it from the iPad to my Android phone using Norton.

Friends don't let friend use NORTON.

Actually, I've heard the version for business is ok but the version for home users is considered by many to be a virus itself.

NEVER NEVER NEVER let anything Norton near your computer(s).

The newest Norton anti virus is OK, but the 365 or the Norton Internet Security can both be a nightmare.

Recent Norton versions have been good but there was a time when is was terrible. Worse choices are McAfee or Trend Micro. I used Butterfinger or Bitdefender before but certain things about it rubbed me the wrong way although that was a couple years back. Tried the Average AAA trio (Avira, AVG, Avast) nothing to write home about.
