Norton Antivirus is one of the most popular names
in the antivirus market, relying on a powerful scanning system with
regular definition updates and real-time protection.Created by
the developers over at Symantec, Norton Antivirus promises to be the
perfect antivirus solution for every computer, as it delivers
industry-leading protection against all types of infections, with a
moderate footprint on hardware resources.During our test, we
were really surprised to see how easy and fast someone can install this
application. Truth is, the installer doesn't look too professional
though, although it's extremely efficient and takes only a few seconds
after everything is dropped in the right place.And it doesn't
ask for a computer restart, something that was mandatory in the past and
allowed viruses to spread and sometimes disable antivirus protection.The
interface seems a bit too crowded and clunky and we wouldn't really
expect such a main screen from an antivirus that's supposed to be a
leader in its segment. The settings menu comprises tons of options, but
as always, you should pay extra attention when browsing through them.There
are four scanning modes, “Reputation Scan”, “Quick Scan”, “Full System
Scan” and “Custom Scan”, each with its very own configuration settings.
Of course, the third one takes a lot of time and uses a moderate amount
of computer resources, but it checks every single file on your machine
to make sure you're on the safe side.








Norton Antivirus comprises
basically everything to stay away from malicious files and online
attacks, including an antivirus, antispyware, intrusion prevention,
email and browser protection, but also the so-called “Download
Intelligence” to check your downloads on the go.
Another
interesting feature is the so-called “Facebook Scan” that automatically
scans your Facebook wall to verify the published links.
Another
problem we experienced during our test is related to the update process
which seems to take ages when running Norton Antivirus for the first
time. It depends on the Internet connection indeed, but the first update
needed a lot of time to download and unpack the files.
A really
good thing is the fast scanning process that's also quite friendly with
computer resources. Plus, it is very efficient thanks to the virus
definition updates that are delivered very often, sometimes even several
times an hour.




All in all, Norton Antivirus remains one of the
top choices when it comes to affordable and efficient antivirus
solutions. And with a few improvements here and there, it would
definitely fight for the crown
