Norton Internet Security 2004 upgrade vs renewing subscription 2003

My current installation of NIS 2003 is up for subscription renewal. I was able to buy NIS 2004 "free" after multiple rebates. I remember seeing something about problems with 2004, and from this site, I see they are still happening. Would it be better to pay to renew my 2003 subscription or should I go ahead and install 2004?

I'm running XP Pro, use a dial-up modem, have 1G RAM.

Hi frustrationtoo,

You are correct. I have seen problems here with 2004 that doesnot mean to say 2003 doesnot have problems.
I donot exactly remember questions that are related to 2003 issues.
I would recommend you to go with 2004 because the latest software should have better features that earlier ones. Since it is very important for your computer to be protected with security , it is always better to have the latest one .

I had hoped someone would have something to say about the 2003 subscription.  I'm always fearful when I update/upgrade anything. In any case, the PC Mag article (i.e. the customer reviews) convinced me not to go with 2004. Really incredible Symantec would post that reference on their web site!
