    Hi guys

    Symantec is already testing their latest version of the much aclaimed Anti- Virus Software ( Norton Anti Virus 2005 ) I have some of the screen shots for you..... This version will also include an inbound firewall and also will change colors according to the status of the Anitivirus ( well just from green to red). It will interface with Windows XP SP2 veru well......

    Normal Screen.

    nik: dont bother with the 2004 its absolute rubbish. I had severe problems with it. Right now I would say do the corp edition or use 2003 version. I would take the wait and watch approach for 2005 esp since we dont know how our system will be affected after SP2 installation for Windows XP

    I guess we can expect a spyware /adware remover along with the
    antivirus engine... not very sure though.

    Hope its not resource hungry as its predecessors!!!

    yup the scanning is real slow cause norton scans every single thing. NAV 2004 already has the joke programs and adware built into it to a small extent.

    But I still would be happy to have a safer system than a crashed system

    Yeah.
    Norton may be sluggish,cpu n memory hog.
    But its reliable.
    Is the Beta of 2005 available for download.
    It looks cool
    But it seems that Symantec has just made the interface prettier.
    Couldnt find any new features from the snapshots.
    Hey Leech,
    What are the min. & reccomended requirements.
    Most probably they must have reccomended winXP, 256MB Ram n some Ghz cpu.

    ya norton 2004 makes the pc real slow. it has unnecessary popups and alerts. which can make even the fastest pc a SNAIL.

    Good... I am too tired of separate Firewalls and that stuff ..Lets see if it is a resource hogger or not ..
    Collectively ZAP and NAV eats some 39 Mb of my RAM ..if it takes less than it . I am gonna have it ...
