So working a bit from home lately and now the company want me to install Norton 360 on my machine as I won’t use the junk machines I could take home.

I’m not opening up any discussion on which AV is best as I have no choice in the matter other than I can have which ever version of 360 I want.

Thoughts………

As you know I am a great Norton fan, I have the deluxe version, 5 licences and Utilities Premium free with it. I have used it for many years since the days of System Works, so My choice would be 360 Deluxe

forgot to say, if you want 10 licences get Premium but Deluxe with 5 licences was enough for me. I think the versions available are different in the U.S.

Does it come with a load of bloat?

@CornishRattler No seems pretty good, go through settings and sort out what you want it to do etc. If you want to get rid of the Crypto Mining feature.
Turn Off Tamper Protection
Delete file NCrypt.exe
Turn On Tamper Protection (important)
I like it as it does a spot of cleaning and Maintenance as well, but like I said go through the settings, I would suggest turning off backup. If you need any help feel free to message me.
I hope you rode out the storm ok. We were damage free other than 24 hours with no broadband and still got no sky tv as the dish moved, so we count ourselves very lucky

Yeah, the worst of it missed the high spring tides by about an hour so at least we stayed dry. Front fence down but that was it
