It got a bad name (and rightly so) for its internet security suites (firwall/antivirus/antispyware) and i was one of its big haters , i still am , they werer a resource hog , even though they have made massive improvements with norton 360 they still try too hard to make it idiot proof and do everything for you giving you very little control over anything. But all that said i installed 360 on our work PC as it came free and i was pleasently surprised. (i still wouldnt touch it with a bargepole)
BUT the AV alone is very good
