Symantec's Norton AntiVirus 2011 is the best antivirus providing winning protection against viruses, spyware, and other malicious threats, Heuristically detects Spyware threats, detects blocks Internet worm attacks, and protects email.
It has been an important actor in recent years and this year is no exception. It comes first in our round-up of 2011 paid antivirus products. He did a very good job at detecting and removing malware, and it has a slick interface.
Installing Norton Antivirus 2011 is a breeze. Setup requires you well designed to click on just two screens prior to installation. Norton products also check if you have incompatible security utilities are installed in advance, so you do not end up with a problem later, a thoughtful touch.
Norton Antivirus has a nice polished interface: The main screen displays on / off toggles its various protective devices, and a map showing the activity worldwide cybercrime during the past 24 hours. I found the card to be a little gadget, and the on / off switch can be a bit confusing at first glance, less experienced users.
Norton detected the infections of active malware in our tests. He removed the active components of infection of 80 percent of the time, and managed to completely eliminate the infection by 60 percent of the time, the two scores above average.
If there is one area where Norton Antivirus could improve is the speed. Norton put up good scores in our speed tests, but not top notch results. He completed an analysis of access to 4.5 GB of files in 4 minutes, 32 seconds.
It's better than the average of 4 minutes, 59 seconds, but behind the most successful product who completed the race in 3 minutes, 35 seconds. His demand scanning speed of 2 minutes, 1 second is also above average, but again, it is below the best performers in this test.
