Egad, it slowed down *every* machine I installed it on. My old reliable desktop- getting a bit older, but still good- slowed to a virtual standstill. A shit hot new Sony Vaio laptop even slowed down to cutting edge 1999 speeds.
Stay away from this product- too much RAM and CPU usage, too little customization, and no cheaper in the long run (even w/coupon) than anything else out there.

BP: To me, one reason it makes systems so sluggish is the amount of "Gee Whiz" stuff they placed on it to make it look so snazzy, professional, "user-friendly" and appealing. I'd rather have my antivirus, anti-spyware, anti-malware, anti-adware and other "computerized condoms" made by other developers that produce light yet efficient and effective products, rather than a corporate behemoth trying to force down all of its products in one massive package down your throat.

Then they merged to tools and blooted to the point of being the first thing I de-install on all new computers.
I have seen more problems with computers running Nortons than I have with Virus or broken registers... yes it is that bad a product

I figured it was worth a demo for the home machines, but boy was I gobsmacked about how absolutely, totally, pathetically AWFUL Norton's stuff has gotten over the years.

What's driving me nuts is I can't get AVG to work on my Vista PC. Spybot and Adaware only took mild tweaking but AVG simply won't initialize, no matter how many times I wipe and reinstall.
The best solution is to reinstall WinXP.
