Internet security is a bit like insurance – it seems expensive at the time, but when you get a computer-ravaging virus, you’re glad you invested.

Norton Internet Security 2012 brings a host of features that you would expect from a complete protection package – like anti-virus, a firewall and browser protection – but also bundles extras, like a built in system monitor to alert you of programs that are using high levels of resources, a surprising amount of flexibility and a user interface that is actually logical and easy to use. Even better, it does all this without creating a huge drain on system resources (which previous versions had been accused of).


Very easy to install and setup

System Overview flags programs with high memory or cpu usage

Lots of customisation options and a logical interface layout


For those looking for an all in one anti-virus/firewall solution, it’s hard to beat Norton Internet Security 2012. The multitude of features, easy user interface and additional system monitor lets you set up your protection the way you want it in no time at all.
