Not exactly true ...

I, too, have Nortons. I have the whole thing: Norton's SystemWorks for Mac. I even updated to the latest this yr, at the current extortionate price.

The update promptly started crashing my poor Mac. I spent a lot of time reading the Nortons' "knowledge base" (more like archeology), wrestling with its online problem-fixer (sic) and in long, fruitless correpondence with (mostly) autoresponders and (occasionally) Nortons themselves. Nothing improved, my poor Mac kept crashing, and I removed Nortons most thoroughly. Problem solved. My Nortons disks now live shunned in my CD-holder, but only because I haven't been able to think of something fulfilling to do with such an expensive nothing. :(

I'm behind a firewall, I'm careful: I think with Macs that may well be enough. I've certainly never had an infected Mac, and that's quite a few years now.

What's the informed concensus on this? I'm very interested.
