Norton AntiVirus 2011


Norton AntiVirus 2011 protects computers from botnets, viruses, worms, Trojan horses, rootkits, and spyware. The program scans existing files as well as all incoming and outgoing data without interrupting the user. It blocks new threats from installing themselves even before their specific signatures have been identified. Users can work on the computer with minimal impact on performance: in addition to small "pulse" updates every 5 to 15 minutes, regular scans and updates occur when the computer is idle. A bootable recovery tool creates an emergency disc or flash-memory drive that lets users start and repair badly infected computers.

New in 2011, Proactive Performance Alerts tell users when an application is slowing down their computer, and the Norton Control Center organizes program controls, settings, and system status information onto a single screen.

Other capabilities include the following:

  • Auto-Protect scans all incoming and outgoing email messages and attachments, including compressed files, to ensure they are not infected. It also scans incoming traffic from instant messaging services and removes infections automatically. It reviews the security status of every process.
  • Cookie protection detects tracking cookies and gives a user the option to delete or ignore them.
  • Automatic and on-demand application optimization improves application performance.
  • Norton Insight technologies provide information on threats, downloads, files, and system performance.
    • Download Insight warns of dangerous downloads before they are installed.
    • File Insight tells where files came from, whether they are trusted, and how they affect performance.
    • System Insight gives an overview of PC events and their impact on performance and resource usage.
