Beware Of Norton Spyware Removal Tools - Get The Lowdown on Norton Antispyware Software

If you type "norton spyware removal" into a search engine, you'll find that there are two popular flagship products by Symantec against spyware. These are Norton Antivirus and Norton Internet Security.

Norton spyware removal products are very popular due to their ease of use and functionality. Of course, the Norton name has been popular for years. Based on the original creations of Peter Norton and his widely heralded, Norton Utilities and Norton Disk Doctor, Symantec and Norton primarily concentrate on the security market these days and have perhaps the best known brand in the anti-spyware and internet security market.

But beware of Norton spyware removal tools. If you look at Amazon, for instance, you will see that Norton Internet Security 2007 only gets three stars out of five, and Norton Antivirus only two stars out of five.

Why is this? Here, I will review the cheaper norton spyware removal product, Norton AntiVirus 2007 and let you know the reported pros and cons.

Reported Pros

1. Some customers have been loyal to Norton products for many years.
2. Product also detects viruses and rootkits.
3. Integrates well with Windows Security Center.

Reported Cons

1. Incompatible with Zonealarm software.
2. Lengthy waits, often over an hour, for customer telephone support -- outsourced to India.
3. Slows down machine significantly for some and takes up valuable system resources.
4. High CPU load reported on some machines from this Norton spyware removal product, resulting in overall PC slowdown.
5. Many reports of installation not completing and errors produced.
6. Annoying subscription expiration popup (remind you of annoying spyware?) that cannot be gotten rid of unless you upgrade/renew.

From the above, we can see that there are mixed views on this particular Norton spyware removal product. Despite apparently being popular, I assert that this is a case of a product being popular despite some serious misgivings. Similar parallels can be drawn between this Norton spyware removal product and the Hollywood hype machine where awful films are hyped up and break box office records but leave moviegoers disappointed.

There are many spyware removal products and you should think carefully before parting with your cash.
