Norton Internet Security 2009 – First look

Yeah, I know it’s been out there for a while but we finally got to take a decent look at Norton Internet Security 2009.

The first thing I liked about it was that it will automatically remove your previous version of Norton as part of the install process. In prior versions, you had to do a manual uninstall first and then install the new version.

It does take a while to run the install. I also noticed that it doesn’t immediately run a liveupdate so you want to run that manually.

There is a new feature called Norton Insight. The link is on the left of the control panel and could be missed. When you run it, it scans your system for tasks and apps that it trusts so it doesn’t have to keep scanning them. I’m not sure how this works from a security standpoint but it is worth taking a look at.

I was running Norton 2007. 2009 kept all of my firewall settings so there was little I had to do.
