Norton AntiVirus not only protects your computer from viruses, but also from spyware and other malicious programs. The program scans your computer’s drives and memory constantly for problem files. Norton AntiVirus also frequently updates its virus library so it can detect new viruses as well as old ones. When disabling the program for installing applications, you can run Norton AntiVirus from within the Windows environment as well as from a command prompt. The command prompt feature is only available in Norton AntiVirus 2003 and Norton AntiVirus 2003 Professional Edition.
