Norton Internet Security. How reliable is this program in protecting our computer from virus attacks?
Okay I have used different virus scanners which range from AVG to Norton. Currently I do use norton Internet Security.Let me tell you one thing, no program is fool proof but I think that Norton is a very good anti virus program. Since I bought my current laptop, I have used Norton Security and it does what it is supposed to do and so far I have not managed to get any viruses and it automically updates itself when there are new updates which works great for me.
You get what you paid for!!!
The free scanners or even the ones that you get from you cable or internet company or other means do not always the best. Mostly they are just scanners. You want to have something that is always going to actively scan you computer on a regular basis. On my desktop before getting my laptop, I just had a free virus scanner and it did not sniff out a file that was a virus, but when I tried to introduce it to this computer, it sniffed it out and removed it.
I think Norton Internet Security does what it says it does as it will protect you from viruses and many other things. What is included in Norton Internet Security is more than just a antivirus package. It has a personal firewall, antispyware, antiphishing and even identity safe. Norton protects you before you are attacked and that is what you want.
