Can software be too user friendly and over simplified? Well in my opinion that is the case with Symantec's Internet security 2000. The world of PC's is hellishly complicated with everything from bits to bytes designed to confuse and confuddle at every turn. So it's hardly surprising that a company should start to make a living from providing products that hide the workings behind a nice pleasant facade. Symantec the guys who run the Norton brand are masters at this with many successful products like Norton anti virus and system works to name just a few, but just occasionally there is a subject that no matter how hard you try is just not ...

Norton Internet Security Is Symantec's Offering for a personal firewall. This product was originally AtGuard's, but Symantec took over the company and re-labelled the software as its own. The program installs very easily, using Microsoft Window Installer (that used in Office 200). Once installed you can set up accounts for different users, say if you want your children not being able to send certain information across the 'net (such as your home address) you can enable this. You can used the many built-in templates, such as "teenager" and "supervisor". Or you can leave this feature alone if you don't want the hassle, or ... Read the complete review

The latest offering from the Syamntec stable gives us protection while we are surfing the World Wide Web. For the novices out there (and I include myself in this category) the main purpose of this program is to provide a firewall protection between you and the network of computers that you hook up to when you are surfing. The firewall acts like a security guard and checks everything that leaves and enters the network. This sounds complicated but in reality it isn't. Most of the predefined settings you don't have to touch when you install the program you can surf in safety straight away. Other features include a parental control option ...

Getiing paranoic with the fast always on internet I tried the trial version. Downloads beautifully & then takes over your computer. If you are a novice you will get yourself into such hassles you won't be able to function. Causes conflicts with existing programs and causes freezes. After rebooting you sometimes cannot reconnect to the internet without uninstalling the feature. I gave up in under a month. This was surprising because the 2000 family edition version was very user friendly and gave me no problems at all till I ran out of updates after a year. The 2001 version gave me nightmares. I am not saying it is not an excellent ... Read the complete review
