Recently, it has published the latest version of Norton 360 which is a fully fledged computer security tool. It has been rated among the top 5 paid security suite for home computers. But, all these ratings and reviews are paid. Actually, these are the part of the promotional optimization work which is conducted by the company itself. This often makes difficult to find out the honest norton 360 review on the web. Fortunately, here are true reviews for the Norton 360 suite that will help you to have the clear view of the security suite.

In terms of tools, there is no new inclusion as such. User will get integrated tools for removing virus, Trojans, malware and bacterial programs. Side by side, you will get spyware, anti phishing, root kit scan, registry tools and so on. So, norton 360 review does not score a point in this case.

Uninstalling Issues

Officially, Symantec claimed that it has made all the necessary changes that was needed to be done regarding the uninstall process.
