Norton is a virus? Not exactly, but they’re on to something. Viruses generally are installed without the user’s consent (e.g. on a new PC), degrade system performance (check), interfere with legitimate programs (e.g. blocking Firefox by default or by accident), take proactive steps to prevent removal (ever try uninstalling it?) and generally disrupt the end user experience. We know that Norton Internet Security isn’t really a virus, but it certainly approaches the status of extortion-ware, considering how persistent it is about reminding users that they are unprotected unless they pay their tribute to the gods of Norton.
