Norton NIS 2006: Internet Security for Us All

Isn't Internet security all about feeling secure? But it seems that just when you think you're secure, another virus, worm or other cyber-nasty announces itself either on the web or in an email from a friend.

I've always put great faith in Norton products to supply the utilities needed to make my computer run fast and smooth. Well, Norton Internet Security 2006 does just that. (I'm not alone in that faith -- Symantec -- Norton's "parent" -- protects more than 370 million computer or email accounts worldwide.)

Here's what the 2006 model has to offer:

    * Automatically filters spam and phishing email
    * Automatically removes viruses, Trojan horses and worms
    * Automatically blocks intruders and identity thieves
    * Hides your computer from hackers
    * Scans email and IM attachments for virus threats
    * Alerts you to serious virus outbreaks and adjusts your security settings accordingly
    * Gives you control over all incoming and outgoing Internet traffic
    * Prevents confidential information from being sent without your permission
    * Blocks Web sites you don't want your children -- or others -- to visit
    * Blocks banner ads and popup windows

New features include:

    * Automatically detects and blocks high-risk spyware and adware programs before they are installed on your system
    * Now includes 12 months of protection updates and new product features as available throughout the year
    * On-going protection keeps your computer protected from the latest Internet risks by automatically renewing your subscription at the regular subscription price (plus applicable tax) -- if you want
    * Inspects your computer for security holes with one click
    * Detects and removes dangerous spyware, keystroke loggers and other unwanted monitoring software

It packs a wallop!

Price: $69.99 (download or retail)
