The first thing that struck this reviewer about Norton Internet Security 2010 is that it has an impressive user interface. It generally just looks good. But good looks are not going to get an Internet Security suite by on its own, and on the performance front, it doesn’t disappoint.

Testing it out on a netbook, this reviewer was impressed with how it monitors CPU and Memory performance quite effectively whilst the software conducts scans of your computer or when the anti-spyware or firewall options are working. 

That is, the graphs are up-to-the-second in terms of there updates. It's not only how Internet Security 2010 monitors your CPU performance, but it's also really light. Thanks to its Quorum engine, this security suite balances system performance quite well with system protection.

Running on this reviewer's netbook, it didn't slow down computing functions at all. It also includes all the usual features such as network scans, email antivirus and anti-spam. Its web settings give you browser protection, downloads and anti-phishing measures, and there are also parental and privacy controls as well.

Norton Internet Security even rates your applications in terms of trust levels, community usage and resource usage:  A handy feature this reviewer enjoyed. Norton also generally has a good reputation when it comes to independent AV testing web-sites that have put it through its paces.
