Another great review!!!!
Norton did well (it could be better) but it's a beta so everything is fine.
I am not a fan of Norton but i believe that it is lighter and faster compares to Bitdefender.
Please, next time show us how much memory each program consumes (windows task manager).

Once more , great job........
 
Good review ;)
I like it's UI looks fresh and simple, some people didn't like Norton and said it's a crap and some of them even say "Norton is good if you aren't connected to the net" and that was big false :D in fact SONAR require internet connection and it provide good protection especially on the web, and not only that Norton always automatically scan any downloaded files from web as we can see in the video, so don't bother with scan any downloaded files manually again :D

One thing that I didn't like from Norton it's UI freeze often like Kaspersky (but not again in Kaspersky 2015 version) but according to your review it seems they already improved and looks quite fast. Thanks a lot for the review Manzai :)

I've never been a fan Norton, but it seems to do pretty good here. Great review :) also what is the song called?

Just select skip...no interference...that's what I do.
I actually did that last night... and so I have Norton with Webroot.

Observations:
1. Norton runs light and fast. There is very little slowdown in boot up - almost like ESET.
2. Nice GUI.
3. Sometimes the GUI freezes.
4. Too many false positives because of the Community Watch. Examples: flags Perfect Disk process and K9 Web Filter process as threats.
5. Detection rates on 27 malwares the same with Webroot.
6.SONAR very SLOW to respond to 0-day threats.

ifacedown: Have you tried the NIS 2015 beta? Seems to run well...although takes a while to install but nice after that. Maybe it's just my Windows 7.

My bad...had just finished talking to someone on another forum that was asking for a recommendation and I had a senior moment. Need more sleep here.
