Default Re: trying to replace Norton Internet Security 05

once 4.0 goes final i will buy it, right now go 30 day demo
That not very good combined, both used more memory than Norton Internet Security 2006. Now I used Norton Internet Security 2007 trialware for 2 days, I found it really amazing used just 7.5Mb of memory at idle, it loaded into memory instant than all previous Norton Internet Security versions which took longer time to loaded after you log in Windows and also browse Internet instant too. You can delete viruses when it detected and run full scan on the fly, full scan used only 14Mb of memory and 21.5Mb in total. In fact it used one third of Antivir's 68Mb total memory usage when ran full scan.

I highly recommend you to try Norton Internet Security 2007 trialware and I think you will buy it instead of combined Antivir and Outpost Firewall Pro. I will buy it when it available to buy in UK as soon as the trialware expired to replace Norton Internet Security 2006.
