Hey everyone! It’s travis here and I am going
to give you a look at norton 360 anti virus. Before we start Let me give you a little background.
I have used norton products for years. I actually have norton 360 installed on two PC’s in my
house. One is a laptop and one’s a desktop One last thing before we start. I am only
going to cover some of the great features that this program has to offer and I will
only talk about the basics. Trust me, you wouldn’t want to watch a video about all the
features this anti virus has, because it would almost be a full length movie. Granted, it
would still be better than most movies that are being produced now days.
Anyways, let’s get started. This is the main screen, which appears whenever you open up
Norton 360. It is a simple interface and easy for even the technologically challenged people.
From this page you can either run a computer scan, run LiveUpdate, get support, or access
more specifec settings such as “tasks” and “settings”. Let’s take a look at the computer
scan, since this is in my opinion, the most important part of a anti virus program.
As you can see, you can run a quick scan or comprehensive scan. This is typical for most
anti virus products and is nothing special. That being said, it is still useful to have
this option. A little more unique is the “let me choose” scan.
The let me choose option is just like it sounds. From here you can check different options
such as: if you want to run a virus and spyware scan, if you want to run updates, if you want
to do a registry cleanup. You get the point. Lots of useful options here. That being said,
most people will just run a quick scan or comprehensive scan so let’s look at that.
As you can see the program is currently scanning my computer for virus’ and spyware. I won’t
go into comprehensive scan because it is very similar except in that it explores more of
your computer. From the tasks menu we can see a whole lot
of performable tasks. Let’s briefly go over some of these tasks.
First off there is run scans, which is something that we can access from the home page menu.
I already showed you this so next we have the Run LiveUpdate. This simply updates your
Norton 360 to include all the latest protection. This is a great feature because even if you
buy the anti virus today, it won’t be outdated in half a year. The team at norton works hard
to make sure that you are always protected as well as possible. After all, that is their
job. Next we have the monthly report option were
we can check out what Norton 360 has done this month. It is a nifty little thing to
check and interesting to see just how much you have been protected by using norton 360
As you can see from my screen, I have been saved by what potentially could have been
a virus. Under pc tuneup tasks you have some useful
tools for cleaning up your PC and potentially making it run faster.
Suppose something went wrong with your computer. The harddrive crashed and you lost everything.
All your music that you bought, all of your word documents, your wedding album, and your
child’s first steps. Trust me, I have been their and done that. Thankfully Norton 360
allows you to backup your files. You can even back them up online so they will always be
safe, even if your computer gets destroyed in the unfortunate case of a natural or even
unnatural disaster. Overall this program is very clean and runs
well. It doesn’t get in the way of everyday use and it certainly does the job. There are
so many different perks that it has to offer. Some of them you will probably never use and
others you will depend on to keep your computer safe from threats. Paired with this great
program is an even better support staff. It is not likely that you will ever have to contact
them but should you have to, they will provide you with excellent customer service. I suggest
to you that you give this program a try. It really is a small price to pay for keeping
your precious information protected and backed up at all times.
