"Our ultimate Internet & antivirus protection"

Overview:

Norton 360 is one of the most fully featured and effective ways to protect your computer from online viruses, adware/spyware, and other online threats. The Norton company has developed their PC security products over the years to be of a higher standard than competing products. Norton 360 has been developed by professional programmers, virus definition experts, and uses complex algorithms to ensure your PC is always functioning at its very best. Norton 360 offers real time virus protection, and technology that's able to immediately identify and remove threats as they appear, providing you with a level of protection that's unmatched by other products in the PC protection industry. Experience the Norton 360 difference for yourself!

Installation:

Because the file size of this program is quite large, it will take some time to install. After waiting patiently for the installation process to complete, the program will finally load up and be ready. Norton 360 is compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8. 

You'll also be needing a PC that can keep up with the software, and that means having at least 256 megabytes of RAM, at least a 1 GHz processor, and 300 megabytes of hard disk space. 

Interface:

You'll see 4 windows labeled Security, Identity, Backup, and Tuneup.

Each of these boxes can be clicked, and you'll see a drop down box with additional options accompanying each one. Backing up your files is easy, protecting your identity is fast and simple, and keeping your PC tuned up and running efficiently can all be accomplished through the main program window. 

Norton 360 is also visually attractive, at least as far as the interface is concerned. 

Pros:

  • The Norton 360 Security Suite Is The End Result Of Many Years Of PC Security Experience
  • It Comes With Everything You Need To Stay Safe Online And Off
  • No One Knows PC Security Like Norton Does

Cons:

  • It's Kind Of Expensive For Yearly Protection
  • It Requires You Have A Fast PC With Plenty Of Resources To Run At Its Best

Alternatives

It's easy for beginners who don't know a lot about computers to keep their PC safe with this software, and a lot of work went into its creation. Panda knows PC security like the back of their hand, and now you can use their expertise to protect your PC(s). 

McAfee Total Protection - If you need a software title that can protect against malware, spyware, adware, phishing scams, hackers, and many other online threats, then you should consider the McAfee line of products.

Stay safe with McAfee. 

Conclusion:

Like we mentioned above, Norton is the industry leader in PC security, and you can rely on their expertise in the field of total PC protection. Although the Norton 360 software is kind of expensive, it's worth the price to know that you're protected against all current and emerging PC threats.
