    Re: Norton's AV 2003

    Thanks Dave,

    I'm wondering though if there is going to be an upgrade for "SystemWorks Pro" as well. I really like the package that SystemWorks has and if Norton is going to come out with SystemWorks 2003, it would be prudent for me to wait rather than upgrading just the AV. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Re: Norton's AV 2003

    I have seen nothing of this, also NO sign of it on the beta site.

    I will be adding it to my 2002 Suite, with is working just fine in Windows XP.

    Re: Norton's AV 2003

    According to Symantec's web site, NAV 2003 has "ENHANCED! Automatically removes viruses, worms, and Trojan horses.".

    I sure hope that's an option. I would never allow any software to "Automatically removes viruses, worms, and Trojan horses.".

    Re: Norton's AV 2003

    I agree. <img src=/S/exclamation.gif border=0 alt=exclamation width=15 height=15> I usually like to wait for the first service pack before making the plunge into the "bug pit". Buy it if you need to live on the edge immediatly but if you wait one to four weeks it will be sold for about $18 at most system builder sites as the current NAV2002 is now priced. One example is http://www.buycheapsoftware.com/deta...?productID=519

    Re: Norton's AV 2003

    I have run the public beta and have seen no problems.

    By the time one waits for the discount prices one may need to renew their subscription to the new virus def files. It pays to be protected.

    Also, most people have to be the first to get one of those super duper games but when it comes to protection, they will wait and let every one else be the tester. Makes NO since to me.

    Re: Norton's AV 2003

    My sister recently purchased NAV 2002 at no cost after rebates.
    I think it was at Comp USA.

    In any case, NAV does not really issue SPs, instead they bundle software changes along with the VD updates, so you cannot easily tell when software has changed.

    Re: Norton's AV 2003

    What new features are in NAV 2003?
    It was worth getting , say, NAV 2002 for the enhanced script blocking, what additional protection does NAV 2003 offer?

    Re: Norton's AV 2003

    If you were to go to the webpages about Nortons AV 2003 you could read the following:

    <font color=red>NEW! Detects and blocks viruses in instant message attachments.
    NEW! Exclusive Worm Blocking technology detects worms such as Nimda in outgoing mail to prevent them from infecting other computers.
    ENHANCED! Automatically removes viruses, worms, and Trojan horses. </font color=red>

    Scans and cleans both incoming and outgoing email messages.
    Downloads new virus definitions automatically to protect against new viruses.**
    Script Blocking defends against fast-moving script-based viruses such as "ILoveYou" and "Anna Kournikova."
    Worm Blocking and Script Blocking can detect new threats even before virus definitions are created for them.
    Includes step-by-step instructions for installation, even on a computer that has already been infected.

    Re: Norton's AV 2003

    First of all I`m very satisfied with Norton A.V. it`s simply the best V-Scanner available.
    But,you say one of the new features is:"Exclusive Worm Blocking technology detects worms such as Nimda in =OUTGOING= mail to prevent
    them from infecting other computers."
    I,could be wrong but isn`t the whole idea of a V-Scanner to protect my pc against these sort of threats in the first place?
    In other words if Norton A.V. keeps my machine clean(wich it does)why does it need to scan OUTGOING mail.
    I`ve got Norton 2002 running and that has the outgoing mail scan and I`ve always wondered why it needs to do that.
    Because if my machine is clean how can I,infect other machines?

    Re: Norton's AV 2003

    Howard,

    I found a few reviews online yesterday about Norton AV 2003 and they were mainly positive. But at least two reviewers said that it wasn't worth the extra money to upgrade from 2002 to 2003. In short, there isn't much that has changed.

    Re: Norton's AV 2003

    But if your AV subscription runs out, are you just going to renew or go for a upgrade, they run out at 1 year from install?
    I jave a month left on my machines. <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/devil.gif border=0 alt=devil width=15 height=15>

    As for the OUT going, you know you are NOT sending a new strain. If you have not sent a email, and the sending screen pop up you know that you have a problem.

    Re: Norton's AV 2003

    Dave,

    I will probably renew since what I read on the reviews wasn't stellar in regard to new features. My subscriptions don't run out until January of next year anyway. I am running Norton SystemWorks 2002 and love it; like all the previous versions of this product. Personally, if I had only a month to go on my AV Subscriptions, I'd go ahead and renew them now just in case there is a problem. Better safe than sorry, eh! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Re: Norton's AV 2003

    Yes, I am running the 2002 Suite also, but there does not appear to be a upgrade to the suit or I am going for the AV upgrade. With 4 machines on Windows XP I trust NO ones email and or other source of a virus.
