Venkatesh April 2, 2012 at 6:04 pm

What I like most about Norton 360 is that it does the job i.e., keeps my PC secure. Improvements can be (a) large disk space consumed and (b) its integration/plugin with Outlook; this is quite slow at startup.

Linu George April 2, 2012 at 6:35 pm!/aviator365/status/186800921756438528

Hi I like the low impact of Norton 360 on the laptop, in addition to the set it and forget it type program it has. I would like to see more than just 2GB included and also the antivirus is basic for android phone , it should have been the full version with firewall and tracking ( unless if i am mistaken). Thanks for the giveaway. Regards.

Gaurang April 2, 2012 at 7:33 pm

I liked the Identity Protection feature the most. As it is the unique feature in an antivirus and we can save our credentials with proper password protection. Thus no one can else access or change our saved settings. Looking forward for 360 antivirus :)

Tamil April 2, 2012 at 8:01 pm

Merit : Norton ease of installation , User friendly interface to intract with , Runs fast on System .

bala April 3, 2012 at 12:34 pm

Here is my tweet!/techbala9/status/187072227718606848. Already following you.

The best part i like about Norton 360 is its Sonar component and Download Insight file reputation service. There are 2 features I would like Symantec to incorporate are an option for backup updates and a boot time scanner like avast. Norton is a success stroy. 4 years ago Norton was deemed a resource hog and now it has a come a long way with true grit and determination to create a product that has everyone in awe.

Thanks for the giveaway trouble fixers.

Thanks for Giveaway…

Sharath BS April 4, 2012 at 11:55 am

Norton is the best security suite out there. Norton 360 will help me maintain my system free from infections, I can protect some of my important data related to work using the backup tool, Protect my identity from fake websites and most of all tune up my PC and make it faster. It is a sort of complete system enhancer. The android version will also help protect my phone. As android is growing in popularity so are the threats that are coming up against it. Norton will be the answer for all this.

kalyani April 6, 2012 at 12:57 pm

I think Norton is better than other security programs because its firewall and Norton Insight, and its utilities function ^^
I hope to be one of the lucky winners in this great giveaway! Please count me in…!/kalyaniv20/status/188165765470498816

Very good review. Thanks. What do you like most about Norton 360? I tried all security programs from the top 5 in my opinion ( Kaspersky, Norton, BitDefender, Avira, F-Secure ) , which still exist in the market. Norton is with great effectiveness in the protection system was also the easiest for the system. That is most important for my elderly PC and poor computer performance. Thanks for this giveaway contest and good luck to all.

stylish April 8, 2012 at 6:17 am!/stylishnstar/status/188789613043781633

Its has a very well designed interface and very user friendly even to newbie. Thank again and I would like to participate in the contest.


lovely April 8, 2012 at 10:02 pm


Norton has improved a lot since its 2010 version. It is now very very light on system resources, consuming only a little amount of hard disk space compared to other antivirus or internet security solutions. It is very fast and efficient. It has a very very nice user interface complemented with all its top-notch comprehensive protection and optimization. And most, especially, it is the quickest and easiest program to install…

Vivek April 9, 2012 at 9:51 am

Here is a chance to win Norton again, last time could not win, but hopes are high and faith in god. I have been using Norton Mobile Security that i have won through trouble fixers and it’s great, no complaints and nothing, same is with Norton 360 version 6.0, as i have tried out a trial version, and it seems to do what it have been build for, i truly like it’s simple interface and it’s threat assessment for 0-day threats, reputation service is also great, i very much share contents in my office and come across hundreds of threats, but Norton give me confidence to share contents across computer, banking protection with identity safe keeps my passwords safe in a vault like thing. Thank god Norton is here..!!

Alok Yadav April 9, 2012 at 12:02 pm

Been using Norton Internet Security 2012, but as 360 has more features so i will go for it. Several people have different opinions about products and features. I want to say that norton has what that any other security suite does not have till date. have used many suits but nobody comes near to norton, simple user interface, phishing site blocking, online backup is all of top notch. whenever we download any file it scans from reputation servers that makes me protected from newer threats, i am heavy downloader so i need this type of tight protection, one more thing is automatic firewall rule for the applications that access to Internet.

Alka April 9, 2012 at 3:49 pm

My fav. norton—hurray ! i was desperately waiting for this giveaway because i badly need an antivirus in my pc. i trialed out norton internet security 2012 but now it has expired, till it was working my pc was running fine, now i do not know what is happening, i have also used Norton 360 (6.0) and i must say it is awesome than anything else, light on resources, fast system startup, threats can’t easily kill or deactivate norton protection because of it’s tamper protection. Online backup and identity safe is like a blessing for me. No annoying popups and everything is automatic like norton tasks. So i am waiting to win it !

krazyguy April 10, 2012 at 10:18 pm

Some of the features that are fantastic and yet I have not experience before when I use other services are:
– Identity protection, which is I heavily need the most
– the tune up feature, which will hugely save time

Would be awesome for me to really get my hand on an app this good so I can see first hand and prove that this one really does the job. Thanks

I will like to own a N360 because of its superior detection. it saved me many times. I remember it curing a USB infection which other AV failed to detect. Its super fast too. Norton 360 will also give me free online storage which I can use to save my very important data online.
