Norton AntiVirus is a powerful antivirus tool that can remove various threats which can appear on one’s computer. The utility constantly updates its database in order for any new virus signature to be added to it. The tool has multiple scan modes so that users can quickly scan a certain folder or partition, but it also offers them the possibility to perform a full or a deep system scan in order to reach for the Registry and other important elements of the operating system itself.
The app uses a low amount of resources in order to avoid any interference with other utilities and users can prevent notifications from popping up on the screen when apps running in full screen are on. Whenever the computer is in an idle state, a background scan process will be performed, so that users can benefit from a constant protection measure against viruses. Malicious websites are blocked before they have a chance to load so they cannot install spyware or other harmful elements on the computer.
