Default Dell Mini 10 with NIS2010 PC Version. - 06-27-2010, 09:56 PM

This is my 1st time on this website, bought my Dell Mini 10 last week, loving it so far. I have a question about Norton Internet Security 2010 (PC version). Is it cool to run this on the Netbook, as I see that Norton have a Netbook version offered on their website. I have NIS2010 on my desktop, and it has a 3 PC license, with one install left. If I use this on the Netbook, will it run OK or will it hog too much CPU etc? Dell is Model PP19S, with 160G memory & 1GB RAM, and has the Intel Atom processor.

a lot of the AV programs will slow it down, a good free alternative many opt for is the Microsoft Security Essentials, its a free download and doesnt really slow down the system and yet you are still protected

NIS2010 is a great choice - the "netbook edition" leaves off some features. I have been running NIS2010 on my Mini 9 for months and it does not slow it down. Even better, I found, is the beta of NIS2011 which you can find here with a 120-day license.

The one thing about NIS2010 that can be a problem is that when you resume the PC from standby or hibernate, NIS goes active with updates and scans right away. NIS2011 delays for 10 minutes, waiting for everything else to stabilize, and it has much less impact.
