Norton AntiVirus 2014 is a powerful and reliable anti-malware scanning engine. This version maintains a similar structure to the previous edition, but optimizes and improves several features.
Advanced defense instruments
Norton Antivirus 2014 provides complete protection in real-time against viruses, worms, trojans, spyware and rootkits, while also acting as a filter for email, instant messaging programs and internet browsing.
Norton is also able to analyze your Facebook wall, which is increasingly becoming a tool for spreading malware.
Thanks to its SONAR technology, the proactive defense module can identify unknown threats with greater accuracy. Norton Antivirus 2014 can also block websites and malicious downloads, as well as a 'Silent Mode' configuration option.
In addition, the antivirus integrates Norton Power Eraser, an advanced tool for use when the engine, with its classic scan, fails to delete malware that has allegedly attacked the system.
Norton AntiVirus 2014 includes an evolved version of the Insight module, which analyzes files and running processes, classifies those that are reliable, and excludes them from being scanned, thus optimizing the resources available to your system.
Stylish and modern design
Usability is undoubtedly one of the strengths of Norton Antivirus 2014. The initial screen displays an overview of the security status of the system, as well as quick access to the main features of the program: 'Scan', 'Live Update', and 'Advanced Settings'. Meanwhile, at the bottom, you've got quick links to other Norton products, such as Mobile Security for Android and Norton Online Backup.
The interface of the antivirus is streamlined and responsive to commands, and the design, which is in fact unchanged from last year, is beautiful and elegant.
A safe bet to protect your PC
Norton Antivirus 2014 has a reliable, powerful scanning engine and relatively low consumption of resources.
It offers many advanced features for seasoned users but at the same time, with its excellent basic configuration options, is ideal for less experienced users.
Norton Antivirus 2014 is a first rate choice for keeping you safe on your PC.
