In the past Norton was considered to be a huge system resource hog. In recent years however they have made their product much more light weight, more accurate in what it picks up on as an infection, and faster.
One of the biggest complaints about Norton in the past is that it was too difficult to remove if you wanted to install a different antivirus. This problem has also been addressed in years past. Norton’s products are now easy to remove, easy to use, and it’s likely that you may want to just stick with them in the future so who cares about it being easy to remove now right?
Norton 2012 is still in Beta phase which means it will not be released to the general public through retailers just yet, but, it is already receiving great reviews in its beta phase so it is shaping up to be a great antivirus for you to use at your home or business.
