    I still don't get where all this Anit-Norton ideology continues to exist. I'm running Norton on my whole family's computers(5 pc's total) all win7 from 32bit to 64bit. Even my Win8 beta 64 is running norton without issues.

    *EDIT* Too cool found another link too online that will confirm this : Windows 8 Early Engagement for Antivirus Makers - Softpedia *SLAMMING*
    According to both Softpedia article and Norton forums there is not going to be a "link" to "download" any anti-virus but rather an invite to very selective anti virus makers to:

    Part of the Windows 8 testing process will be an Early Engagement event reserved for antivirus makers.


    This event is by invitation only. It is open to a limited number of ISVs selected by Microsoft to help verify compatibility of third-party Anti-virus filter drivers with the next version of Windows. Before proceeding to complete this registration form, please note the following:

    “Your company must receive an invitation email from Microsoft before completing this registration form



    It does appear that the Early Engagement Anti-Virus Filter Event will be extremely exclusive.

    "SLAMMING"?????

    (Loosen collar) Ummm, errr, like I have always been invited, and hadn't even thought about that till you JUST referenced it. (Norton Beta Tester since NDD) As well as seeing WE are (for the most part) going to be doing the beta testing of Windows 8 beta (When released) so it makes sense that we will also have the opportunity to test this in conjunction with the beta for Windows 8. Again

    No, I was asking if Norton was still bloat-ware (you seemed knowledgeable on the subject)...
    This is version 6 of Norton 360. If you want to know if it is bloat ware, it is NOT! If you look at AVG's retail security package
    you will see it has a HUGE footprint compared to Norton 360. Also remember Norton is working with Microsoft to give a very
    trim lined security package when Windows 8 is released to the retail outlets.

    Any thinking person will do their own research, evaluate & make up their own mind about which product they will use.
