Norton 360 4.0 beta
« on: February 07, 2010, 02:33:20 PM »
don't know since when this beta is available, anyway I just gave it a shot ...lasted about 15 minutes  ;D once installed, the system kept behaving normally, except browsing was a bit slowed down but that's not the biggest problem. Biggest problem is with this version again, like with any version of Norton that I tried during the past years, boot times are completely crazy  ::) guess I'll skip this new version too  ;D

My Lenovo S10-2 netbook was delivered with 1 year Norton Antivirus 2010, and it is running fine.
One annoying thing is the popup every time it fiends a spycookie so i turned of the cookie scanning

I think I had too many things activated when running the 360 (4.0 beta), but I didn't have the patience to check; might try it again another day. I just can't stand such boot times, and I've only seen that with Norton suites so far...
