I've been using Norton products off-and-on for over 10 years.

Somehow I never became aware that Norton Studio even existed.

I guess I won't miss it.

But thank you MalwareTips Bot for letting us know.

I think it's among the top 3 in the industry, a pity that privacy / data collection makes me stay away from it
Indeed it is very good....I wouldn't be too concerned about data collection...all of them collect some form of data to be effective...Nevertheless if you are not an international terrorist you have nothing to worry about....;)
