"Antivirus Norto has good performance"

What do you like best?

Over the course of many years I have used different antivirus tools on both my work and personal computers and I can say that Norto has a user-friendly interface and plays a good role as it has a number of tools and an excellent recognition of applications that must block for being a threat, eliminate viruses, trojans and spywares, in addition it is constantly updated which indicates that eliminate the new viruses that appear and does not consume resource from my pc, since its weight is 256 Mb

What do you dislike?

I consider that its main disadvantage is that I must always have Internet connection so that the updates are made in the system and have updated the antivirus against new threats, another is that it does not have compatibility with the Windows XP Firewall.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This antivirus works with different operating system, Windows XP as with Windows Vista in addition to Mac OS X

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For every company it is a great benefit to have your equipment free of threats that may affect or damage your performance or suffer from theft of important information and northe guarantees you are free of viruses

"It's a good antivirus, very complete."

What do you like best?

I have this application installed on my mobile phone, and it is very good, I do not have to worry if I open any file on it, because Norton warns me of any threat, every day at the same time it is updated and informs me of the details. It can detect malicious software easily, it has a privacy function where all my data is safe, wifi and web security to have a safe navigation and advisor system.

What do you dislike?

If I am protected I have nothing bad to say, it is very light and easy to use, the best barrier against viruses, it also includes a free version that you can use while you decide to buy.

It is one of the best I have used with all the protection barriers it has is very good.

"It offers me excellent protection."

What do you like best?

With a subscription I can protect several computers, it is an excellent tool to keep my electronic devices without risk of being infected by a virus that may contain a device that enters my lapto a page that opens on the web.

What do you dislike?

So far it has seemed very good, I like that it is analyzed automatically every day, and it warns me of any result. Keeping me thus 100% protected, it does so early in the morning that does not affect at all the functioning of my equipment, it is also very fast when performing the analyzes to the pendrive or any other device.

Recommendations to others considering the product

the best reward is to be protected and have my devices secure.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

the best benefit is to keep my devices free of viruses.

"Very good and fast antivirus to detect threats from malicious programs on my computer."

What do you like best?

For my work every day I must enter several pages to keep me informed and receiving information via email, this antivirus keeps me protected my equipment. It is a very good antivirus I recommend its use since it quickly detects any threat that can be installed on the computer before visiting an infected web page or downloading a malicious file, performs a quick security scan on every page that is entered or when opening a file showing a warning message when an unwanted program is detected and can be rejected immediately. We currently live in a very changing society where we must be protected from any intention to cause damage to our equipment or perhaps take advantage of our personal information, using a good antivirus we guarantee this security as is the case of Norton which allows me to surf the web calmly informing me of malicious files or unwanted pages what I find excellent!.

What do you dislike?

So far I have not seen any disadvantage you just have to be passive when making the download as it takes a little, but it's worth the wait to keep the team free of unwanted programs that are nowadays abundant all over the web and even open some email we run the risk of damaging it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is important to use this software to keep a computer free of threats that may affect the equipment or make use of personal information.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have kept my computer free of malicious programs that can be installed and take advantage of my personal information.

"Norton Security is a reliable software you work with security. "

What do you like best?

It is quite easy to use and install, there are many functions available depending on the level of service you are using. I have not had any major problems with the software, Whether you regularly schedule hard disk scans, protect your personal information while using connection points, clean up your files, analyze if your computer downloads are safe, clear the remaining space, and more. What's also great is that The subscription comes with other device keys, which means you can protect multiple devices if you have a family with your own computers.  Updates run automatically in the background with the need to actually open the software and click the update button physically. For the price of the software I am getting tons of functions at my disposal to use.

What do you dislike?

The complications when the subscription ends, had slowdowns of the computer every time this happened. This is something that needs to be fixed. Now, that was a while ago, so I can not say that some features have changed since then.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Most security features are easy to understand and use. Most classic viruses and spyware are detected before the recommended installation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use this program to keep my systems safe and free of viruses, There is no 100% coverage but this helps fill the gap between nothing and all basic security needs.

"Norton WiFi Security VPN (2018)"

What do you like best?

Very easy to install and set up. I use this product primarily on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and iPad, when I'm away from my home firewall-protected WiFi. Norton WiFi Security VPN enables the user the benefit of secure communication as good as from behind an industrial strength firewall and doing so from a public access point. The VPN is a completely encrypted data stream tunneling from the user's device through any number of secure computers and back. For example, Norton WiFi privacy VPN makes it as secure to make financial transactions using your smartphone and public unencrypted WiFi such as in a coffee house ike Starbucks as it would be from the comforts of your own home.

What do you dislike?

Haven;'t found anything to complain about yet. It's just another reliable product from Norton/ Symantec.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommend. Another great Norton product!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Norton WiFi Privacy adds bank-grade encryption that protects me when I'm on public Wi-Fi so I can use my laptop, smartphone (Android) or iPhone, iPad, etc., on any public hotspot without any worries. It works with any public hotspot and turns it into my own secure VPN to help keep my personal information safe and my online activities and my location private! It also allows access to my favorite apps and content anywhere I have accessed public WiFi including at my home. Norton WiFi Privacy encrypts my data, making the information I send and receive unreadable. I've used Norton WiFi Privacy for over a year now without any noticeable degradation in speed while surfing the Internet and streaming videos. Oh, one more thing that I like is that the no-log VPN doesn't track or store your activity.

"With this antivirus, my computers are 100% protected."

What do you like best?

I have been using it for some time now and it is one of the best, what I like the most is that it does the analysis every day at the same time and notifies me of the results, so I can be confident that no malicious software will damage my equipment.

What do you dislike?

I have it on my phone and my computer and I can recommend it, if it's about protection Norton is very good, it also has other excellent functions, nothing against it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

it's very good, it's not very heavy, it runs automatically every day.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has given my teams a lot of protection.

"Norton takes the crown from Mcafee"

What do you like best?

I love how Norton does frequent updates to help keep my protection up to date. I hear more and more about people who get viruses or get hacked because they have sub par or no security at all. I like the Norton extensions such as the search bar scanner for Google Chrome. This added layer of security screens what I am searching. It is a preventative measure that helps stop me from accessing dangerous websites.

What do you dislike?

I have encountered a few issues regarding other applications and programs on my computer. Norton occasionally will prevent legitimate and "good" programs from accessing and/or opening on my computer. I have had to disable Norton from time to time in order to make necessary changes and/or updates to my computer and programs. I do also consider the price of the program to be somewhat burdensome.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our company deals with highly sensitive personal and financial information. It is not only important but required that we utilize the best security software to ensure the safety of our clients information. Norton provides our company and our clients with the piece of mind that our information and files are protected. Our company has not had any data breaches or system crashes since we have implemented Norton security.

"Norton WiFi Security "

What do you like best?

Norton security is a web security software application for organisations and personal users. Some get puzzled exactly what Norton Security is versus Norton Antivirus. Norton security is a web suite that consists of an anti-virus, firewall software, toolbar and so on

What do you dislike?

The expense from Symantec's site can be too pricey sometimes. There is no chance to completely disable the advertisements that show up regularly. I want I had the choice to do that.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It likewise enables access to my preferred apps and content anywhere I have actually accessed public WiFi consisting of at my house.Norton WiFi Privacy includes bank-grade file encryption that safeguards me when I'm on public Wi-Fi so I can utilize my laptop computer, smartphone, and so on, on any public hotspot with no concerns. It deals with any public hotspot.

I can not mention anything negative, it works very well, keeping me free of threats, I am very pleased with the service, it runs very fast and sends me support of everything found.

"Excellent product "

What do you like best?

I like that it keep my computer safe from any potential threats. I have not had a virus on my computer for over 5 years with this program. I am an avid computer user & do occasionally receive malicious software but Norton will notify me, if a program is unsafe through the community. You will not have to worry with Norton as it is always running & stays up to date. What I really like is the power eraser tool & most features on the program.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the program blocks certain programs that Norton may deem unsafe. I would have to disable the firewall to download the program without an issue. However, this is what it is built to do so I can't really complain. Other than to disable the program to allow certain files to run, I still really like the product & it's value.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a great product as I have been using it for years. I have never had any issues with resolving threats on my computer. It stays up to date and maintaining the security system has been a breeze. If you are an xfinity customer then you can download the program for free on multiple computers. I would highly suggest taking advantage.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This has been an excellent product for us. We are able to save money & time with Norton keeping our system safe. If you are an Xfinity customer then the product is free to use, which we have taken advantage of.

"Memory Hog, but it works"

What do you like best?

I found that Norton was a good product and I did not have any problems with viruses as long as I was using the program. It worked for Internet, and email well. I was also teaching and students would pass viruses via Word or Excel and so I would aways use the program to examine files before opening them. It never failed me.

What do you dislike?

The cost of the program became difficult for my home use. I have multiple computers and although you can get a multiple use license it still required multiple licenses.

The software took a lot of memory and that was a negative.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I used the software for personal and work use and I liked the software. The cost was the negative for me. And it is a memory hog if you don't have a lot of ram on your system and need to use programs that also take a lot of memory.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It provided the required virus protection that I needed for both PC and multiple Laptop use.

"A good all around security software with good detection capabilities"

What do you like best?

Identity safe feature

Backup

Phishing and firewall protection

the detection has improved a lot in the recent years and has become great from average.

What do you dislike?

The identify safe feature has compatibility issues with firefox

Norton should have detection capability of Norton power eraser(a separately downloadable tool though it is very aggressive and may give false detections) built in

That is why some users of Norton prefer to install security software such as Malwarebytes anti-malware to provide additional security to their devices.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A good security software with the best identity safe feature i have seen, detection rates are great not excellent.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Protection of devices from hackers and infections and automatic form filling.

"Norton Security Premium, antivirus muy completo"

What do you like best?

Es uno de los antivirus más completos que he utilizado, muy intuitivo y fácil de usar. Permite agregar 10 dispositivos de diferentes fabricantes IOS, Android Mac o WINDOWS, lo cual se agradece mucho por la diversidad de aparatos que tenemos hoy en día en el oficina.Además nos dan 25 GB en la nuve para almacenar nuestros archivos más valiosos. El control parental del que dispone es muy completo, con multitud de opciones a configurar.

What do you dislike?

El proceso de instalación puede llegar a resultar muy largo frente a otros productos similares. El control parental a veces no funciona adecuadamente, te deja visitar sitios inadecuados sin que los detecte el antivirus. Alguna vez he obtinido algún falso positivo. EL precio es muy elevado para mi gusto, comparado con otras alternativas.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomendaría este antivirus siempre y cuando quieras un producto fácil de configurar pero que no tiene una efectividad del 100%, además es un producto algo caro en comparación con el precio que ofrecen productos similares mucho más fiables de otros competidores.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Me ha salvado de perder algún archivo que otro al detectar la amenaza a tiempo.

"Wouldn't do business without it!"

What do you like best?

It keeps me out of trouble! Not that I go roaming around online, but as a healthcare office, we need to be careful with HIPAA laws, we cannot be too careful, Norton keeps things smooth and notifies me immediately when there is a threat, takes care of it, and I don't have to even think about it!

What do you dislike?

The pop-ups. Send me an email when my subscription is due, (even if I am on automatic payments), the pop-ups are insanely annoying, for any company, unless a threat has been discovered, then bring those on so I am aware..

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Keeping my patients information safe is a top priority, and we take it seriously. I like that I don't have to worry with Norton.

"Long time Norton user"

What do you like best?

Norton is easy, trusted and safe -- and always reminds me when I'm up for renewal -- since my card is saved in my account with them it's a seamless transition to renew. They just email the receipt. I've been using them for just about 9 years and have remained safe and protected throughout!

What do you dislike?

I haven't had to call their customer service in quite some time, but I remember it being quite a process to reach them before -- it possible in recent years they have made it easier to contact them -- however I can not speak to recent years. I do wish it wasn't so costly -- but I suppose good protection has to cost something.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As long as the price doesn't offend you, I'd say you're in good hands.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Well, I think it's fairly obvious to say preventing cyber attacks, which as we all know, are a very real threat. I've had to replace computers in the past, but never because of a virus infection. So I would have to say that the benefits of using Norton are pretty clear.

"Norton saves the day for the non techies!"

What do you like best?

Norton tells you what is safe, what is not. It stops things when you have people who click on stuff they shouldn't. Norton really saves the say when it comes to internet security.

What do you dislike?

Nothing to dislike, so far i have no complaints with this program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Norton is a great reliable internet security. They are always keeping you up to date. In times of a actual internet security they communicate with their clients to ensure there is nothing to worry about and give helpful hints on how to further protect yourself.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Its not so much what is realized, its when you receive a notice that they are blocking some high alert security issues, that you are grateful you are using it.

"No need to worry with Norton"

What do you like best?

Norton is an all in one comprehensive security software application for my computer that runs in the background without slowing down my work. Norton constantly looks for threats to my computer including new types of threats. I don't have to be concerned that my computer is vulnerable to attack.

What do you dislike?

Price is a little high, but well worth the money

Recommendations to others considering the product

Always use virus software, it's not worth it to have to buy something after your information has been stolen or your device compromised.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I don't have to worry that security sensitive work products may be vulnerable to malware or spyware. I also don't have to be concerned about a virus on my computer or other such attacks.

"Solid Antivirus/Firewall Solution"

What do you like best?

I like how everything is built together all in one solution. You have 1 piece of software to use for Firewall, Antivirus, Backup, and Performance.

It sits in the background and alerts me when there are things I should take action on but otherwise, it sits there and does what is designed to do.

It scrubs my email and removes the items that have viruses in them and lets me know what they are.

There is a log of everything it does so I can see what all it has done. They show me statistics every month of how mI compare to a lot of the world.

What do you dislike?

The Backup interface isn't the most robust. You can't easily control the backups on the web interface.

The program control in the Firewall is a little clunky and slow at times. It doesn't always show me name of something as I would expect, sometimes it shows the filename which I don't always know off the top of my head.

It does slow my system down a little a bit.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give the free trial a spin. They have a lot of offerings that can be confusing as to which one to get. Pick the option that covers all your needs, not just 1 piece. I'd say either go all in or not at all.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Because we work on the internet and have to send/receive files, download files, get tons of email, we are constantly battling with viruses, hackers, trojans, etc. Norton does a very good job of defending us from all that.

What do you like best?

I never think or hear from Norton unless it is updating or alerting me to a problem. It works seamlessly in the background - just how I like it

What do you dislike?

Not one thing - I honestly have no complaints. It does what it is supposed to do and I have stayed with it for over a decade

Recommendations to others considering the product

I feel it is top of the line protection at the forefront of the industry - and I have an internet business

"Norton Small Business EndPoint Protection software - work in our small network"

What do you like best?

The central administration feature lets me view the status of each of the computers in the network and, if necessary, carry out operations on any of them as needed.

What do you dislike?

The error messages can be a bit cryptic at tines, and the user must make sure he knows the difference between a detected problem and a resolved problem.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take installation slowly to make sure you have all the PC IDs correct and are identifiable to system administrators.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Network and PC security in a small (4 workstations) running Windows 10 with a Windows Server Essentials 2012 server. The central administration capability keeps me from having to log onto each PC to run updates and installs; these can be done from one terminal.

"Norton as an Anti Virus Software"

What do you like best?

Norton provides anti-virus protection while surfing the web. This is nice because it allows the user, often uninformed about the contents of a website before they visit it, to have an additional layer of protection on the web. This can notify them of dangerous downloads, prevent unnecessary downloads, and even find and remove dangerous files within your system. Some software on the internet contains harmful additional components in them, and Norton allows for the removal of those parts of the software. Norton allows for full system scans that remove software that is slowing up your computer with unnecessary or unwanted softwares. All in all, the protection given by Norton gives the consumer and/or company a safety net that allows any user or employee to safely surf the net.

What do you dislike?

Norton is a paid software, and there are many other softwares that offer similar functionalities at a lesser cost, no sometimes no cost at all. In addition, Norton advises the user to remove all cookies, and identifies them as a low risk threat. To the uninformed user this can be seen as slightly frightening, especially since the pick up of cookies is so common. However, cookies are relatively benign and often helpful to the consumer, and the identification of such as a threat is a little ridiculous. I feel it is more a ploy by companies to keep the less informed more on edge to give an impression that this software is necessary.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is one of the most well known internet security softwares available, and it is a name you can trust. However, there are other options that are cheaper and provide many of the same functionalities, so what you are paying for is more the brand name that comes with it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Norton gives a trusted security blanket to web surfing done in a corporate or leisurely environment. The company brand is well trusted.

What do you like best?

I like best that plethora of features and options and different security option that it has. Its very comprehensive. It covers Virus protection, Malware, protection from hacked websites.

What do you dislike?

I disliked how deeply it integrates itself into your system and I've personally found that it slows most of the systems I've install it on.

If it came with your computer and is paid up i'd keep using it, but as soon as they want move moeny there are several free or less expensive solutions that are better.

What do you like best?

I really like that in addition to the basic options for protection, Norton offers advanced options as well that allow me to really control how I am keeping my computer safe. Occasionally I will have an issue that the basic scan doesn't take care of, but I am able to go into the settings and use the more powerful tools to find and fix any issues I am having.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that it can take a lot of memory to run. My computer fan is always loud when Norton is running.

That it really works and it very useful in keeping your computer safe.

"User Of Norton"

What do you like best?

Norton release new versions almost every year. Some unique features of Norton anti-virus are Sonar protection, File Insight, Network Insight, Power Eraser tool etc. which provides more reliable protection against viruses and other malicious code.

What do you dislike?

Uninstalling is another drawback of Norton. If you attempt to remove Norton Antivirus, the uninstallation process proves difficult. This is one area where Norton fails to compete with its competitors, according to PC Antivirus Reviews. Reviewers asserted, "Uninstalling Norton is nowhere near as good as uninstalling McAfee, which sets the standard for fast, clean, easy uninstallation for anti-virus software.

The down facet of Norton is it’s size, it takes up plenty of laptop resources to try and do it’s job.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Most of all Norton’s Heuristic engine is surprisingly sensible. It’s this engine that discovers til now unknown virus’s on your system, code acting maliciously or having the potential to place you in danger.

What do you like best?

It is light weight and user friendly. We did not have any problems when we installed it. It does not have any conflict with our other software

"Swear by Norton tools"

What do you like best?

This product is easy to use, automatically update all virus protection, notifies me when there are issues and provides me with an easy way to fix the issue. This product has a reasonable price so I have an automatic renewal every year so that I am never out of protection.

What do you dislike?

I don't dislike anything about Norton tools. It meets all my requirements and is why I have used it for a decade or more.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Compare this tool with others in the market to see the benefits that Norton will provide.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This product keeps my systems free of viruses and I have never had any problems with viruses. It also creates optimization on my hard drives to keep the system clean of temporary files. Because it stays updated automatically, I never have to worry about being attacked. I just set it up and let it run, so if I'm logging into my computer for personal or business use, I never have to worry that my system is being compromised.

"helps with pop ups and inappropriate websites!"

What do you like best?

I like that it actually does protect you from popups. It also doesn't allow for inappropriate content to go through and often scans your computer automatically to keep protecting it.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that it doesn't protect from ALL viruses. You can still catch some viruses with it. Also, it often shows alerts on the side of your computer which can sometimes be annoying or freeze my computer.

"Did nothing that Window Basic Security would have"

What do you like best?

It was easy to manage.

What do you dislike?

Some might disagree with me, but I purchased Norton when I got my HP laptop. I found the notifications invasive and untimely. Furthermore, I found that everything that I paid for could have been done simply by using the basic security scans and monitoring that windows offers for free (I learned this when I purchased a new computer and my Norton License expired). I almost feel like the basic packages that companies like Norton and McAfee offer are overpriced for what they offer.

"Norton AV is hardly better than a virus, Endpoint Security is hardly needed"

What do you like best?

There is little I like about Norton's AV or Endpoint Security. I like how you can disable it to make your computer performance slightly better than passable.

What do you dislike?

The UI is extremely heavy and obtrusive. The Norton services are very memory-intensive and noticeably slow down very decent machines. Most users who have it installed are out of date with virus protections - which is even worse than having no AV installed, since they have false security. I joke that Norton AV is itself a virus because it pops up needlessly and slows down your machine.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If it came pre-installed on your computer, uninstall it immediately. Consider Windows firewall and ZoneAlarm instead for Internet Security. Use Avast or Avira for antivirus software instead.

What do you like best?

I use it on one of my desktops at home, basically because the subscription came with the machine itself as part of the offer/bundle when I bought it. It works ok, but there's nothing new in the suite. Norton needs to update itself with stronger malware, adware and other functionalities that it's competitors already have.

Compare what Norton offers to its competitors and then make an informed decision for your circumstances.

"Great antivirus for small business and consumers"

What do you like best?

Owned by Symantec, so you know their reporting tools and updating is topnotch. Often they will have mail in rebates for consumers to make pricing more competitive. Very simple install and self explanatory operation. This is probably the most popular and well known antivirus brand out there.

What do you dislike?

I haven't seen a lot of value from a consumer perspective that indicates that Norton is truly any better than Avast or AVG.

Recommendations to others considering the product

None.

"Easier to use and much less stalking than McAfee"

What do you like best?

Easy to use and doesn't slow down your PC.

What do you dislike?

Not sure its even needed anymore with the built in options in Microsoft and freeware. I consistently use AVG protection. Its free and even when my computer got a major meltdown worm that destroyed several friends computers a few years ago I was able to use AVG to clean it and restore my information. All for free.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Its not overly expensive so if you wanted a supported product I'd go for it.

"The Complete Package for the Money"

What do you like best?

Norton has had the best Internet Security software on the market for years. It's real easy to use and administrate and the user experience from an Enterprise perspective is seemless.

What do you dislike?

It can be a little pricey, but Enterprises want to be protected.

Recommendations to others considering the product

From a single user spective at home, there are good "free" options available, but if you want to stay real safe, and you have the extra $$, then it's worth the investment.

"Best in the business, I think."

What do you like best?

Norton Internet Security seems to do the job as advertised and is constantly updated. Although it is difficult to tell if I would be worse off with a different brand of antivirus protection, I simply know that I haven't had the issues I'm aiming to prevent. Prices are competitive if you shop the web for deals.

What do you dislike?

No complaints, unable to say if other less expensive software would perform at the same level.

Recommendations to others considering the product

None.

"A Good Security Suite for PC's"

What do you like best?

It is a simple install with auto-updating features. Managing it is also simple as there are no real advanced features to customize.

What do you dislike?

The lack of advanced customizations for the advanced user is a downside. It essentially became a Green, Yellow, Red system which sucks advanced users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Norton is one of the best of the security suites, none of them are fantastic.

"Proactive protection keeps me safe on the web "

What do you like best?

It constantly updates itself and also indicates that a site is NortonOK on search results in my browser (that's great!) It does a great job of scanning files as I download them and catches many threats as they come in. I'm a big fan of this and have it on all the time

What do you dislike?

It does present conflicts with some installations, so I'm not sure if/when I should disable it for a 15 -min period or longer…For example, it conflicts with Ad-aware, which I also like a lot

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a strong system to protect your computer from the multitude of Internet threats out there. I highly recommend this application on a multiyear basis (what I have). The features are quite extensive -- I likely haven't begun to exhaust its featureset
