The main reasons for purchasing the Professional Edition are:
The rebate for users of past verions is greater on the Professional Edition.
It has the ablility to protect critical systems files to a larger extent than the Standard Edition.
It includes a VERY good file shredder allowing complete deletion of any file by wiping the Hex values multiple times.
It also allows you to install the product on two
machines with just the one Professional licence
which is ideal for any home user with that extra PC!
It's main features include:
Automatically removes viruses, worms, and Trojan horses
Expanded threat detection (of spyware & keyloggers etc.)
Detects and blocks viruses in instant message attachments
Email incoming/outgoing protection
Office integration for document protection
The Graphical Interface of Norton is superb, allowing you to configure, enable or disable fuctions at the click of a button.NAV 2004 is also capable of scanning inside of compressed file so it can repair an infected file without having to corrupt/quarantine/delete the entire file.
The main problem that many users have experienced with NAV 2004 is how it's 'real-time' scanning feature slows down the general performance of most systems. To many users this may not be a problem as they are happy just being fully protected but it can slow a system down considerably.
I found that the best way to work around this is to disable the AutoProtect feature and simply scan files downloaded from the internet whilst performing regular full system scans. This still provides excellent protection whilst allowing an improved level of sytem performance.
