The version 10 of Norton CE identifies significantly more
types/varieties than 8.x does. Additionally there is an known exploit
of the 8.x firewall software. It is also more difficult to shut the 10x
product down via virus vector. I like the CE edition far better than
retail products, they are much more stable, have less glut, and are
better organized. I would recommend the 10x version versus the 8x
version if you can get it.
