Is Norton 2000 as good as Norton 2002?

Is Norton 2000 as good as Norton 2002?

Is Norton Antivirus 2000 as good as Nortons 2002? The reason I ask is cuz I have 2000 on my machine now, but a co-worker insists on buying 2002. Shouldn't 2000 catch all the viruses like Love, Sircam, Nimda, as long as I get the updates? Thank you so much for your help?

Norton 2000 should do fine as long as you update the definitions. The only problem with Norton I see is having to pay for virus updates. That is what I am fighting right now. I installed it 4 months ago on my home PC, Now I cannot update until I subscribe (which costs $)

You have to pay for updates?!  You have to pay for the program as it is!  That can't be right!

RE: Is Norton 2000 as good as Norton 2002?

If you have paid for the program, when you install it you have 1 year free updates.  When the year is up, reinstall it for another year.
