Get a Free Trial of Norton and Enter to Win [USA]

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 42 comments

Check out a free 30-day trial of Norton software -- no credit card required -- and enter to win movies!

As careful as we may be about our usage habits, it's responsible computing to have some sort of software protection to guard your PC from threats such as viruses and other malicious software.

According to data gathered by comScore, 58 percent of Tom's readers have security software on their computers (good for you guys!). 95 percent of Tom's readers are connected to the Internet at home, which is higher than the average. That means that possibly 37 percent of visitors are running without security software.

There are many choices out there for security software, but one of the big names is Norton. Symantec, the makers of Norton, have teamed up with Tom's Hardware to bring you a free, no credit card required 30-day trial of one of the Norton security products listed below. Hit the links for the registration for the free download.

Norton AntiVirus 2010

Norton Internet Security 2010

Norton 360 Version 4.0

Along with this promotion, we're also running a contest for USA residents (exclusing R.I.).

  1. First Prize: One Blu-ray Disk Player, one Fandango voucher for two movie tickets, one original Iron Man DVD, one copy of Symantec Norton 360 Version 4.0
  2. Second Prize: one copy of Symantec Norton 360 Version 4.0 (4 copies available) or one copy of Symantec Norton Internet Security 2010 (5 copies available) or one copy of Norton AntiVirus 2010 (5 copies available)
  3. Third Prize: one Fandango voucher for two movie tickets (198 vouchers available)
  4. Fourth Prize: one copy of the original Iron Man DVD (10 copies available)

    Symantec is the virus. It has infected Tom's, now it is trying to infect the readers.

    Right I still remember the little scam that MCaffe pulled a few months ago and that the major movie and music conglomerates have been interested in having anti-virus scanners report pirated content.

    How many software companies can boost about the developement of a program designed specifically to remove any traces of their program from the end user's system (due to popular request).
    Yea!!! Looks like they can't even give it away ?

    Yes, install the trial so it can dig it's claws into your computer practiaclly infecting it like a virus.

    I have uninstall that program myself and it still prompts you puchase and install. I had to go online and download a special un-installer to get rid of it completely.

    There would have to some seriously wicked prize to get me to install the GOD-AWFUL PROGRAM. Like most of the other readers on Tom's, I happen to like it when my computer is fast, secure, and private. Are Symantec products any of these things? Not really...

    AVG, or Avast, really they are both quite good. Also, I don't blame Norton for allowing viruses in, I simply blame the user.

    The prize would need to be something along the lines of a 5970 for me to scum up my OS with anything from Symantec...pass. I am slightly ashamed of Tom's for their involvement.

    Not cool Marcus,
    If your going to get into the fox hole with a Anti virus program at least make sure its an ethical one.

    AVG is not good either, they will only keep you on as free for a few months then will not allow updates unless you pay them, it happened to me.

    The best thing to do is switch to ubuntu for your browsing. Then if your smart and pay attention to what ubuntu tells you then you will never have to worry about a virus again.

    what kind of a contest is this? Infect your computer with Norton bloatware/adware and you might get a prize?

    I don't use Antivirus....basically because I know how to use the internet and know not to click on every dang thing that crosses my path.

    I don't want it even though it's free. Give me $100 and I'll download it and install it (on a vmware image lol then delete that image).

    58% of users have security software? What the hell? No wonder people on comments complain about having crashes and errors and things. PEBKAC much?

    80%, maybe 70% I could understand, but 58%??

    johnh2005And for ANYONE that uses Norton products to go to http://www.symantec.com/nrt/ and download that software.


    Couldn't agree more. Shame on you Bestofmedia, getting Marcus to hock Norton's crap and using a contest as an incentive. New all time low for the site.
