An antivirus program is an important software purchase to protect your computer from viruses and malware. Symantec produces Norton Antivirus, software that has been routinely awarded Editors’ Choice by PCMag. Norton Antivirus provides three different scanning options: custom scan, quick scan and full scan. The scans check files from the Internet, email, social media sites and instant messenger programs. A summary report is provided after each scan. You can quickly install Norton Antivirus at home to protect your computer.
