Review by Jared Moya

Norton AntiVirus has an average rating 3.3 out of 5 based on 4 user ratings.


Computer security has never been more important than it is today and Norton antivirus software is a trusted name when it comes to security solutions for the computer.


Norton has always been a sore point for me. When it isn't detecting viruses its usually causing more problems than its worth. Heavy on resources, overly integrated into Windows, needlessly complex interface. Antivirus software is all about business, just make it look boring but well organized. If you are currently using Norton switch to Nod32.
