    Damn you beat me to this one! ;)

    You can also pickup for free from their business centres... the list of centres is on the page.

    You don't actually "make a profit" as the stamp costs 50c so you're out of pocket 45c. :)

    Also cheap, but no cashback, is for Internet Security 2007 3-User with a bonus 1Gb key for $49. Search on ht.com.au for it. Not many left apparently.

    Harvey Norman advertised these in the Boxing day inserts for $40, free after rebate.

    I've also seen DSE PowerHouse and Domayne with similar advertising
  • nod2007/12/30 10:31:30
    It is a very good deal - wherever you chose to get it from I guess :D

    ... Buckie cashback ;)
  • MamaK2007/12/30 16:48:15
    Officeworks has it for $50 so I guess good to shop around.

    I had a look at it- would it be better than the free AVG professional download?
  • TheGoodDr2007/12/31 11:53:58
    No - seriously no. I work in IT and Norton Antivirus is much more trouble than it is worth - running free AVG is much more efficient and secure than using the system-crippling, waste-of-time NAV.
  • admin2007/12/31 19:47:44
    :D - I've uninstalled nortons from a machine and replaced it with zonealarm on the basis that nortons was more trouble than it was worth.

    Pardon? With detection rates in the 70%'s it's hardly a good choice. AVG Pro is a much better product, and you can get it for free at the moment.

    Mind you, I too think Free* is about the right price for any Symantec product. :)

    It appears that Symantec have woken up to the fact that their products have taken a beating in the marketplace for their buggy, bloated and slow crap.
  • skcmok2008/01/01 13:51:39
    This is a terrible deal! You couldn't pay me any amount of money to use that bloated Norton Anti-virus crap! :D

    so true....

    Is that when stacked up against the pro install ?

    :D - thats a bit like giving you a free car that only starts 70% of the time.
  • nod2008/01/03 09:52:11
    I certainly happily saw the back of nortons.... never again
  • leny2008/01/04 21:03:20
    Aww I was about to buy this but now I'm having doubts:o :confused: :(
  • nod2008/01/04 21:18:17
    Leny a lot of people have nortons and are happy with it
    It just caused a few hassles for me and when investigated I was not alone

    I now have Zone alarm and all seems fine
  • kearnsy2008/01/04 21:20:05
    i think norton antivirus is absolutely fine...I am currently using the security 2007 product and also used the Norton 360 product.

    I have had no problems personally, for free i don't think you can lose really.
  • nod2008/01/04 21:22:18
    so kearnsy do you find that your machine runs slow? or has a seriously slow start up process?
  • leny2008/01/04 21:29:48
    If it makes my system slow, I can always get rid of it without it leaving any issues, correct? :)
  • admin2008/01/04 22:19:18
    Yes - correct. Its no problem to boot it off. Its a toss up really. Nortons is old, industry name, secure, realiable etc - it is also pretty bloated in the sense of trying to do too much rather than one thing really well (just my humble opinion)


    I personally think that all of the AV products I've seen lately are bloatware and clunky. Dunno - I sort of figure its something that should be very unobtrusive and not annoying in the sense of continually asking re allowing or denying services access.
  • lilpretzel2008/01/04 22:24:34
    Can't go pass nod32 been using it for donkey years.

  • kearnsy2008/01/05 06:09:13
    Well I don't think that Norton slows down my computer that much, noticably anyway. I much prefer having an extra few seconds in boot time to remove myself from mostt internet threats.

    I believe the Norton 360 product was engineered from the ground up less than 12 months ago and this product is the equivilent or better to the Internet Security product. I am not sure if this means that it does not have the bloatware that ppl talk about in the regular Norton Security Product.

    On my old computer (a Latitude D610) I had installed a license of Norton 360, I thought it did a really good job. My new computer (a Dell M1330) it had a license of Norton Internet Security 2007, I was going to remove it (to install 360) but it seems to be doing a good job and not slowing down my new system noticably.
  • popmuzick2008/01/07 00:14:29
    do we have to include the receipt or only the sticker ? coz i wanna purchase it woth my staff discount at myer and just curious if i can still get the cash back with it..
  • indy172008/01/09 08:17:54
    I used to use Norton software, and it did get bloated and slow your PC down. But I heard that they had improved the 2007 version and decided to give it a try. I now use Norton 360, and if it does have an impact on my PCs performance, I certainly don't notice it. Every security product has to have a small impact on system performance due to the very nature of the product (i.e. the number of scans and intrusions it has to do). This deal as well as the other cashbacks are great deals.
  • admin2008/01/09 10:04:48
    Welcome to buckscoop indy17.

    I live in a closet - didnt even know Norton 360 existed. Will go have a look - Thanks.
