Norton AntiVirus

Protect your computer in many ways


Email Message *


The most visible thing after you start Norton AntiVirus is the constantly changing info box on the main screen which shows the CPU usage of the system and Norton, but also keeps track of your trust level. In this way the program gives you a constant update about your security level which gives a nice feeling to the interface. There are not many changes in its look except one. While the program is with its usual interface, it has a very nice feature – when you choose Performance it flips your window in the coolest way possible and after that when you click Home it flips back. This feature is great and gives you a sense of a modern program. As a whole Norton AntiVirus has good looks that only contribute to its user friendly appearance, but this program is not only for show. Norton gives you a lot of scanning and security controlling options turning it into a versatile app, but there are some disadvantages. Some of the buttons redirect you to the website of Norton's developer and to other applications offered by Symantec Corporation which turns some of them in unusable interface waste-space that limits the good feeling of the free version. But if you are willing to pay for the full one maybe they've removed all of that useless interface.

Basic Operations

While developer Symantec Corporation updates regularly their virus definitions, the app has one big problem – it does not have an auto-update function. So first you have to Run LiveUpdate that downloads the latest virus definitions. But after you run it once, it starts updating your virus definitions almost every 5 minutes. This may look troublesome and even dangerous if you forget to run LiveUpdate for a long time and new and dangerous viruses have appeared in the meantime. But there are other useful sides of Norton AntiVirus v21.3.0.12, like the option to Scan My Facebook Wall, which protects you against modern type hacking attacks, which have appeared with the increasing popularity of the social network sites. Also from the Advanced menu you can control a lot of options which are offered by the program, like Insight Protection, SONAR Protection, Email Protection, Browser Protection etc. In this way you can feel even more secure and adjust your bulletproof vest the way you like it.


There are some issues with Norton AntiVirus, like that it lacks a first time auto-update function, has a lot of advertising buttons, but of course nothing is more annoying than the paid issue, which is hated by anyone loving to download free software. But the program has great security capabilities, looks even better and not to mention that it has the options Norton Power Eraser and Scan My Facebook Wall which are unparalleled and soon will turn into must-have tools.
