The last piece of the bundle is the inclusion of Norton's Internet Security 2005. This suite of antivirus software gives you a 90 day trial period for Norton's AntiVirus and more. If you have no AV software, this is a great addition to the bundle. If you want to buy the full version, you can do so at a later date. I use Panda AntiVirus in everyday use, but Norton's is excellent.
