No security software Group Test would be complete without an appearance by Symantec, and this is no exception. Symantec's offering is its Norton Internet Security Suite, specifically targeted at the standalone desktop machine, or those connected to smaller networks. Because of this, it is only available for non-server versions of Windows.
Installation of the product is extremely straight forward, aided by the very well-written documentation; as you would expect, considerable emphasis is placed on the prevention of viruses. The product very much urges you to take responsibility for your own actions, and the manual contains a very useful guide to the risks the internet can pose - something many home users may know nothing about.
