Download Norman Security Suite v8 DnBNOR Special Edition and Receive 4 Years’ Worth of Protection!

Spread the love

Norman is an antivirus company that has one of the oldest history known in the industry but its influence is totally gone as it fell behind and got outdated ever since the early 2000s. I once use their v5.7 antivirus and it was a pathetic experience. Nevertheless, their latest version, Norman Security Suite v8 seems to have far more positive reviews than previous few versions i've known. You can read one of the reviews here.

Now you can try out this new antivirus free of charge, for 4 years straightout; no license keys needed: all you got to do is to download the DnBNOR Special Edition installer from here and install it! The DnBNOR Special Edition of Norman discarded certain features such as the Intrusion Guard, Privacy Tools and AntiSpam module from being free but users will still have the Antivirus and Antispyware protection feature, the all-new Norman Personal Firewall and Parental Control for 4 years worth. That is quite a sufficient protection level for most users out there.

I tested Norman Security Suite v8 DnBNOR Special Edition on my virtual machine and well, i think it is a pretty excellent suite although i did not test its effectiveness against malwares. It has a pretty solid look, is quite stable and much more responsive compared to previous version. One open of the task manager and i realized that Norman has also started separating its security processes into many clutters (similar with F-Secure and G DATA) so as to increase responsiveness and prevent crashes from bringing down the entire suite. Smart thinking, Norman!

Verdict: I would say it is a solid suite to keep and remember, it is also the first Norman product to officially support Windows 7!

So grab your chance while you can. After all, how many antivirus software vendors out there are as kind as to offer us 4 years' worth of free protection nowadays?

      1. I tested this on a virtual pc with Windows XP installed and found it pretty okay, so installing it on a host machine should actually work proper. You might want to check your computer for pre-existing malwares or broken configurations/system files or at the very least, double-check your PC’s system with Norman’s recommended system requirement here.

        1. Just because it is old doesn't mean it is good. Remember they are giving the software minus some important features, for free for 4 years. All I am saying is that it take too much resources  to run. Better software is out there for free.

          1. FYI, if you read the article carefully, i didn’t mention anything about recommending it because it is old and rich in history; i recommend it simply because it was much more stable to use compared to previous versions and contains sufficient protection features for 4 years. I do not know why it does not run well on your PC when it works fine on mine; you may want to work that one out and gain some knowledge about it…=)

            I do agree with you: better software is out there for free but also take notice, that not all users out there trust free products as we do. Which is why they might consider this promotion.

    1. Norman may not be of that standard what it has had but do remember, it is very old security software. That’s why it is still in the market.

    2. If you search the web for more review of Norman you’d found out that some may say it is good/improved, some may say it is disappointing. If you read the other comments, you’ll notice that while i found Norman working fine, Donald has found it terrible. Of course, in the case of such mixed reviews, the best way of knowing whether it is good or bad is to try the software yourself.

      Cheers,

  1. I always enjoy this blog, and I really appreciate all of the great free software promos you offer your readers. That said , I can't understand why you would recommend a security suite (" i think it is a pretty excellent suite"), and in the same sentence , state " i did not test its effectiveness against malwares"! Is it excellent because it's "pretty" ? Excellent because it " has one of the oldest history known in the industry but its influence is totally gone as it fell behind and got outdated", or it has a really weird & cryptic acronym  (DnBNOR) in it's name? The only reason I use security apps is to protect my computer and personal information from "malwares". A more detailed and relevant explanation  would be appreciated, before we install and try this software.  Thanks again for all your great posts.

    1. I mentioned that ‘I think it is a pretty excellent suite’ in the context of Norman’s products alone; notice that in my article i did not run comparison with other security software. That is supported by the fact that i’ve tested the suite and found it much more stable and user-friendly compared with previous version (again, this support the fact where i mentioned that it’s influence is totally gone but has made improvements in their latest release) and no, i do not recommend it simply because it’s beautiful; if that was the case, i’d might only recommend Norton and Kaspersky because these two products has the best GUI out there for me.

      Also, i did not test its effectiveness against malware because to do that would require a large amount of virus samples and that would mean i have to scout the Internet and find some, which takes time. You can always read reviews and virus test results from reputable antivirus tests to judge how Norman can protect you. As for the DnBNOR acronym which happens to be a company, i hope you understand that it is attached with the product so as to market the company and increase its awareness in public. So there’s no major issue over the DnBNOR; the product works just as fine as the original unlabeled one.

      I hope that clarifies your questions. Please do not hesitate to ask me if you have more! =)

  2. Nope. I did not ask or care about it being  pretty, or old, or DnBNOR in the name. These were mentioned because they are you mentioned them in the article . As you did not test the so-called "Security Suite" for any security abilities, it seemed quite possible one or all of them might be why you said this is an "excellent suite".  You even stated " quite a sufficient protection level for most users out there" and "it is a solid suite". My question was, and still is : why do you make such positive recommendations for a security product  without actually checking it's security performance? A security program is neither excellent, nor solid, nor good to keep unless it stops malware and prevents spying and system intrusions. Yes, I and the other readers can search out  reviews on other sites if you would prefer that we go elsewhere. If that is the case, why post this Norman ad at all?

  3. Just a clarification … that last question about the ad was rhetorical. I appreciate the heads-up about free software. I just think you should avoid making such positive recommendations for an untested product.

    1. No offense, but it seems like you’re misunderstanding my area of focus for this article’s positive recommendation.

      Well, i couldn’t have made myself much more plainer. Yes, i do not test the suite’s effectiveness against malwares, but then if you read the article carefully, i did not praise it as being an “excellent suite” in terms of malware detection rate or similar (please go back to the paragraph and re-read what i have elaborated after my praise). I praise it as due to its improved interface, responsiveness etc. over previous versions. Likewise, I stated ‘quite a sufficient level of protection’ in the general, meaning that it is equipped with antivirus, antispyware, firewall and parental control which is what users usually need. Again, it seems like you are confused about the meaning of ‘protection level’. FYI, protection level in PC security terms means the degree of coverage in areas that could be protected, not the effectiveness of protection.

      I repeat myself once again; i do not make positive recommendation of this software because of its detection rate, effectiveness etc. (In fact, it would be stupid to recommend it based on detection rates when i did not even malware-test the suite myself!). I make my positive recommendation due to its improved interface, general performance and responsiveness over previous versions. Yes, you can suggest that i should have done a malware test, but then i already emphasized on what my positive recommendation are focused on in the article; its improved areas, which is also very important, by the way. After all, nobody will use a great antivirus with great detection capabilities when it has bloated and confusing GUI, crashes often and constantly being unresponsive, unless they wanted to kill their computer! =D

      Regardless, I apologize in advance if my article has mis-led you.

    2. And you had already got it wrong when you said that i am making positive recommendations for an ‘untested product’: just because i didn’t test its malware detection capabilities doesn’t mean thati didn’t do any testing, for one thing. I admit that my recommendation can be a tad too positive but i must correct you on one thing: i did test the product’s general performance (as emphasized in my previous comment: very important for security software as well!).

  4. "quite a sufficient protection level…a pretty excellent suite…i did not test its effectiveness against malwares…a solid suite to keep…better software is out there for free…Yes, i do not test the suite’s effectiveness against malwares…it seems like you are confused about the meaning of ‘protection level’ …just because i didn’t test its malware detection capabilities…i did test the product’s general performance " and you say I am confused about protection levels (lol).  Well, at least it didn't crash your virtual machine, so it's all good. Who cares about "protection levels" as long as it seems like maybe -possibly it's sort of, kind of less buggy than some of their earlier junk.   Norman for THE WORLD. Damn the torpedoes..er..I mean…Damn the malwares – full speed ahead! (or not, if your machine gets infected or hacked).  Maybe I 'll pass on this one. It's been a hoot, but I have rejoin the Real World now.    y'all be good, now – y' know?

    1. Don’t be ridiculous. Go back to the article and read it again: I didn’t say that Norman is the best of all antiviruses out there even though i say it has improved. I have also told you comment after comment, my recommendation is focus upon improved general performance, which is one of the factor that others might get interested in trying the promo. I’ve given explanations on the areas it has improved; not those gibberish ‘possibly’, ‘maybe’ sort of excuses that you claimed i misused all over the article (If you want more proof that it has improved, i have and i can always re-edit my article and show it out for the rest). I already explained my point of view in general: why this promotion is good and why i think interested people should give it a go. This last comment of yours is unhelpful, and it is discouraging.

      This promo is for those who think they need it or for those who are geeks and wanted to give it a go, so you can always take it or leave it. Besides, i’d advise that you stop arguing over the same matters on which i have already explained with logic – people will only think of you and me as jerks, and it’s not a nice thing to happen. Let’s rest this case once and for all.

      Cheers,
