ANTIVIRUS PROTECTION BASED ON BEHAVIORAL ANALYSES

Norton Security provides extensive antivirus protection, including against viruses, trojans, malware, and other malicious attacks. What makes them unique is the way they proactively search for possible threats. Norton collects feedback from over 175 million Norton users in order to continually update their technology to spot new threats faster and provide more efficient protection. They combine this information with their own research and use what they call “SONAR Behavioral Protection” in which Norton detects possible threats to prevent them from causing any damage.

REAL-TIME PROTECTION ON ALL DEVICES

One of the things that make Norton such a convenient solution is their compatibility with nearly all devices and platforms. Users who purchase Norton Security can install the software on their PC or Mac and have it installed on their mobile devices as well for further protection against identity theft and scams.

OPTIMIZED PC PERFORMANCE

Once installed, users can click the “Performance” button in the interface to optimize the speed and overall efficiency of their computer.
This includes:

  • Optimize Disk – Norton scans all permanent disks for fragmentation and optimizes them.
  • File Cleanup – Removes all Windows and internet temporary files.
  • Startup Manager – Allows you to control which applications start automatically when the computer is turned on and provides information about each application and how much resources it uses.
Usability - Antivirus reviews at Top 5 Antivirus Software

Usability

The Norton Security interface is very clear and straightforward with five large buttons on the main page: Security, Identity, Backup, Performance, More Norton. Clicking a button once will provide more information on the status relating to that button. For example, clicking “Security” will inform you of your PC’s status, whether you are protected or not, and when the last scan occurred. Clicking again will lead you to additional settings and options in a design that is easy to understand and navigate.

    Buyer Beware with Norton. I have had Norton for about 7 years, and am now changing to McAfee. Why? Because of Norton’s fine print! Purchases of Norton products are not covered by the 100% money back guarantee, unless you purchased the product from Norton (i.e., cannot have purchased it from Amazon or any other third party). Also, if you do have a virus get on your computer, and you haven’t purchased from Norton, you will be charged $99.00 to have the virus removed if you call in for assistance. So, my question is, where is the protection, and where is the guarantee?

    I had Norton antivirus and updated on line with a # and had to strip and reinstall everything on my computer . Called and some guy said I had to pay 299 for protection. I have 6 more months of protection. When I went into Norton.com/set it request email. I have changed internet companies and do not have access to old email. So can’t transfer it to the same computer. What a joke.

    I am with Norton and it is due in seven days time but I have cancelled my next standing order payment because for one laptop they wanted to charge me £78:00.

      Hi Paul,
      Regarding your inquiry, the price for the second year is not the same as the first year. If you’d like the $19.99/year price, you can cancel (which it sounds like you did), and sign up again here for the reduced price.
      Best,
      Laurie

    assess for MAC please?

      Hi Mardy,

      Norton provides one of the best antivirus packages for Mac computers, with some of the best third-party lab tests for detection and prevention.
      On a broader note, we plan to begin adding a Mac section to all of our antivirus software reviews in the very near future.

      I have requested a refund on my $39.00 payment. When will I get my refund?

    I currently have Norton protection which expires in 1 month. If I purchased the Standard (middle) protection now – would the month be added on giving me a total of 13 months protection? Thank You.

      Hi Lenny,

      Unfortunately, your new subscription would begin from the time you purchased. It’s also worth noting that as an existing Norton customer you would not be eligible for any special promotions on offer for Black Friday/Cyber Monday.

    According to the Norton site, their Deluxe package will support Windows 10 systems BUT NOT the Edge browser that comes with Windows 10. Does anyone know what antivirus packages DO support the Edge browser?

    I have a tower PC, a laptop and a Ipad. Will my purchase to Norton Security cover all three devices or do I have to purchase a software protection for each device separately? Thanks.

    I have Allot of protection since 1986 and The one I like the most is the new Norton. I have used Norton for 7 yrs. The Password ,ID protection is a Great asset with all the Programs, Banking, ID& Password creation & Storage has made me a believer. I do have an alt for quick scans and cleanup that also run on Auto But Norton has combined Virus, program repair, Password Generator & Storage in one package Check it out.

    Hi Jeffrey, I am happy to hear that you have decide to take responsibility for you PC and keep it safe. Norton is a good brand indeed and you are very lucky since Norton Security is giving a limited time offer to customers, jut like you :)
    You can test the product for 3 months at the price of $19.99!!! Go to our homepage and click on Norton, the rest is easy. Although I am sure you will keep Norton, Please keep us posted after the 3 months.
    Safe Trial!

    Hi, I have heard very good things about Norton antivirus and so I am very interested to try it. The thing is that I don’t want to commit myself to a full year package before being 100% sure it is the right product for me. Is there another option which might work for me?
    Thanks!

    Great experience with Norton

    A friend of mine has been using Norton for 2 years now and I have never heard her complain about it, so after the old brand I was using gave me some trouble, I decided to use Norton as well. It has been 4 months now and I am super pleased with it. Norton fits me mainly because I don’t have any technological pc skills and I get along with it very well thanks to its very easy to use interface.
