Protecting Your Online Privacy With
more from Symantec
Norton Antivirus 2008
is the latest version of the popular Symantec antivirus application.
This family of software has become extremely popular and continues
to offer an extensive list of features that keep you safe when
you're online. As well as being able to perform regular scans of
your system to find any infected files Norton Antivirus 2008 sill
run silently in the background. While running as a background
process it can deliver an always-on level of protection to prevent
the forwarding of infected emails and the installation or
downloading of infected files.
Application And System Scanning
As well as protecting against and
removing viruses and infected files, Norton Anti-virus 2008 will also
protect against spyware, adware, and worms as well as protect your
system from rootkits. Messenger, email, and browsers are all scanned
along with any application that has regular access to the Internet.
The Norton Protection Center
The Norton Protection Center is a
user interface that summarizes and gives easy access to all forms of
online security offered by the Symantec applications you have
installed on your computer. It is simple to use and extremely
efficient and effective. As well as links to the appropriate areas
of your Norton applications, it also provides details of the latest
scan results and the latest action the applications have taken as
well as your general security settings.
Virus And Spyware Protection
Viruses and spyware are the two most
common online threats. They can be contracted while surfing the
Internet, reading email, opening attachments, downloading software,
or using instant messenger applications. Norton Antivirus 2008
effectively protects against both of these categories of online
threat. You can run regular scans, removing any threats detected on
your system, and you can also enjoy the benefits of live protection.
Proactive Scanning And Protection
Spyware can be covertly and
discreetly downloaded onto your system without your knowledge. Once
installed it can also take actions to hide itself, such as
replicating itself in various areas of your system. It can prevent
security software from running and it can remove essential files to
prevent these same applications from performing their scan. Norton
Antivirus 2008 prevents spyware from downloading in the first place
making this much less of a problem.
Rootkits are typically applications
that enable hackers to gain access to your system. They are
installed deep within the system files and prevent the detection of
other applications and scripts when accessing the Internet. Under
this cover, hackers can gain complete access to your system. Norton
Antivirus 2008 performs a deep scan of your entire system including
detachable media devices and storage devices as well as emails to
prevent rootkits from harboring on your system.
Protection Against The Very Latest
Norton Antivirus 2008 uses heuristic
or characteristic scanning to help determine whether files or
scripts are indeed a threat. This means that as well as protecting
your system against the latest threats released to the Symantec
signature database it is possible to scan and remove spyware without
having a signature file at all. This protects you from the very
latest potential threats.
Software And Security Updates
Regular security updates and software
updates are released by Symantec. You will have access to all of
these updates throughout the period of your license subscription.
For example, if you buy a two year subscription then you will
receive free updates over those two years. This provides you with
the peace of mind that you always have the latest protection against
Norton Antivirus 2008 Conclusion
Symantec products have become
extremely popular and the latest Norton Antivirus 2008 is no
exception. The name is a little misleading because as well as
scanning for viruses it will also protect against spyware and
rootkits, and will prevent hackers from gaining unauthorized access
to your computer. Regular updates and a proactive level of
protection make this a very powerful and useful tool indeed.
Norton Internet Security 2007
more from Symantec
Online security has become an
increasingly important factor for web browsers and Internet users.
The Internet is seemingly plagued with viruses and spyware while
there are an increasing number of people and even companies
attempting to gain unauthorized access to systems and steal personal
information. Protecting yourself against all of these threats with
separate security applications can quickly add up in terms of money,
required disk space, and time.
Included In The Norton Internet
Security 2008 Suite
Norton Internet Security 2008 is the
latest incarnation of the Internet Security suite from Symantec.
With antivirus, antispyware, firewall, rootkit detection, intrusion
prevention, and antiphishing protection as standard it offers a
complete solution to protecting your online privacy. Further add-on
packs can also be purchased to add protection such as antispam.
Prevent Identity Theft
Identity theft has become a serious
problem, especially for Internet users. There are precautions that
we should all take when using the Internet, chatting to people on
messenger or email, or even filling out online forms. Checking for
web page security reports is a good way to ensure that you are using
a genuine site that offers secure relaying of information. Using
Norton Internet Security 2008 it is possible to greatly improve your
protection against these types of threats.
Antispyware software helps to prevent
spyware ad other forms of malware such as adware from infecting your
PC. Spyware is typically used to record and transmit personal data
from your computer to a host server belonging to an unauthorized
third party. In other cases spyware may record information regarding
your browsing habits and use this information in order to display
advertisements that are relevant to the types of site you visit.
In either case it is undesirable
because it does record personal information that you should be
trying to protect. Norton Internet Security 2008 offers antispyware
protection to ensure that these potentially damaging and system
wasting files are not downloaded onto your system.
Hackers can exploit certain
weaknesses that are known within applications and even within
operating systems. They may use a backdoor into your system, which
is a malicious script that grants them complete access to your
system. Preventing this is essential to the protection of your
personal data and also to ensure that your PC and the Windows
registry do not suffer.
All security applications within the
Norton Internet Security 2008 suite run silently in the background
of your system. You can continue to work, play, or browse the
Internet while the Norton applications protect you from any
potential threats. It also ensures that you can prevent threats to
your system rather than attempt to recover from them once they have
wreaked havoc on your PC.
Detects Hidden Threats
Because the Norton Internet Security
2008 aplications use heuristic scanning they can scan your computer
for the latest threats that, as yet, have no associated signatures.
This is done because the scanners look for certain characteristics
that are predominant in spyware and virus infected applications.
This combined with the regular security updates ensures that you are
completely protected against all the latest problems.
Norton Internet Security 2008 Updates
Symantec has become one of the most
popular online security software producers in the world. Their
response time for new threats is very good and regular and automatic
updates for the Internet security applications means that you can
protect yourself from a whole range of problems without having to
make any effort or remember to download the latest updates.
Symantec Internet Security 2008 is a
superb way to purchase all the security applications you need
because it will work out cheaper while still providing you with the
best and most effective applications available.

Norton System Works
Premier will hold your hand throughout your time online,
installation of software, and even the deletion of files to ensure
that you get the best protection and the best performance from your
computer. Any spyware or virus applications are detected and
prevented from installing on your system while the Windows registry
and system files are regularly scanned and monitored to ensure that
no malicious scripts are found.
Optimizing Hard Drives
As well as Internet security, Norton
System Works Premier is also responsible for the optimization of
your Windows system. Norton System Works Premier will scan and
record all installed software in order that it can be quickly,
easily, and fully uninstalled if required later. System backup and
restore application also offers extra peace of mind that in the
event of something going wrong with your system you can effectively
restore it to an earlier time.
Cleaning Your System
You can keep your system in excellent
shape by routinely and automatically clearing out Internet history,
cache, and temporary file folders. All of these cause a drain on
system resources but by using an application like Norton System
Works Premier it is possible to instantly remove them without a
trace by cleaning the registry on completion.
A Web Of Protection
The combination of antivirus and
antispyware is an essential combination with todays prevalent online
threats. Norton System Works Premier will scan your system to ensure
that there are no malicious processes or applications on your system
and then clean or remove the files as necessary. Regular security
and software updates also means that you will be prepared for the
latest threats before they find their way to your system.
Data Backup And Restore
Data loss can cause insurmountable
problems for businesses and heartache for individuals. By creating
regular backups of files on your system it is possible to limit the
amount of damage done in the event you lose data. Some loss is
almost inevitable but by producing daily backups you know that you
will never lose more than a day's data.
Problems With Windows
Windows is an extremely popular
operating system but it isn't without its share of problems,
especially for heavy PC users. The Windows registry, in particular,
is prone to keeping obsolete entries and corrupt files. When an
application next attempts to use one of these entries you will
invariably receive an error message and you may be prevented from
running an application or even using your system.
Managing System Processes And Windows
Processes running on your system are
a good place to start looking for viruses and spyware applications.
Norton System Works Premier gives you complete control over the
running processes and also over Windows settings. These settings can
be used to improve the performance of your system.
Defragmenting And Optimizing Your
As well as offering defragmentation
Norton Systems Works Premier will also optimize the drive once it
has completed the defragmentation process. Optimizing your hard
drive typically leads to an improvement in performance, a reduction
in loading times, and fewer application and system errors. This
includes the clearing out of temporary folders, history, and other
areas that you may otherwise overlook.
Recovering From Failed Installations
Failed software installations can
cause a number of problems on your system. The remnants of files are
usually left once the installation has failed and some registry
entries may also be left behind. These traces can conflict with
other files and registry entries causing software problems and they
will almost certainly lead to problems if you try again to install
the application. Norton System Works Premier provides a way to
reverse failed installations and clean out the traces from your
Norton System Works Premium
Norton System Works Premium is a
powerful suite of applications. It will protect you and your
computer when you are online, and it will also scan emails and
instant messenger chat sessions in order to find any infections.
Norton System Works also optimizes your hard drive and provides
several functions and features to improve the performance of your
system and clean it up.
Norton System Works Standard Edition
more from Symantec
Norton System Works
not only protects your system and defends it against spyware,
viruses, and other malicious attacks. It also offers the features
and tools to improve the overall performance of your system. These
tools offer the potential to remove unwanted or obsolete system
files and registry entries as well as detecting and fixing any
errors that are occurring within the Windows system. You can
completely clear Internet and application history and offers you the
opportunity to gain complete control over the applications and
processes that are currently running on your system.
The Negative Effects Of Malicious
Viruses and spyware can have a
detrimental effect on your system and can also lead to the theft of
personal information from your computer. At the very least you could
have your browser homepage and search pages hijacked and an
increased amount of popup advertisements and other forms of
advertisements displayed on your desktop.
Improving System Performance
Spyware and viruses are also
typically responsible for a drop in performance from your computer.
You may notice that applications and files take longer to load and
the system itself can take a painfully long time to start. Software
conflicts and incorrect or missing registry entries also cause
application and possibly even system failure. Preventing all of this
helps to ensure that your computer runs at its best over a prolonged
period of time.
Preventing Infection On Your Computer
And Network Computers
Norton System Works blocks spyware
and viruses before they can manifest themselves on your system. By
preventing their download and installation you can effectively
ensure that your computer, as well as any other users on your
network and even email recipients, remain safe. Some applications do
the majority of their damage as soon as they are installed
delivering their payload as soon as access to the Internet can be
achieved. The only sure way to prevent this damage is by preventing
the software from downloading.
Because Norton System Works also
scans incoming and outgoing emails it can prevent the spreading of
viruses and other malicious codes or applications from spreading
using email clients and contact books. Instant messengers are also
scanned to ensure that spyware and viruses aren't forwarded from one
person to another.
Fixing Windows Errors
Windows errors and problems manifest
themselves in a number of different ways and for a number of
different reasons. Norton System Works routinely scans your system
looking for any Windows problems and resolving the issues. While
scanning it will also find potential problems that may later
manifest themselves as serious issues. Through the optimization of
Windows settings it is possible to prolong the life of your PC.
Cleaning Your System
Cleaning your PC is an essential part
of maintenance. By thoroughly and properly removing Internet and
application temporary files, clearing Internet cache, and deleting
cookies helps to ensure that Internet browsing and applications run
quickly and properly. Other system optimization features includes
the defragmentation and optimizing of your hard drive.
Norton System Works Conclusion
All software installations and other
actions that involve the changing of registry entries are closely
monitored by the Norton System Works application. In the event that
you wish to restore a system back to a previous date or you need to
uninstall any applications then you can use the Norton System Works
application to return your system to the required state.
Norton System Works is a powerful
application for the defense and optimization of your system. As well
as providing the features of an antivirus and an antispyware
application it can also be used to optimize the Windows registry and
your entire system alike. By combining Norton System Works with
other Norton applications it is possible to gain full protection and
optimization of your system.
Security And More From The Norton 360
more from Symantec
Norton 360 is an
unobtrusive multi-functioning computer security and optimization
application. As well as protecting you and other users of your
computer when surfing the Internet Norton 360 will give your PC a
service, backup your files and folders, and optimizes your Windows
registry. Perhaps the biggest selling point for many people, though,
is that it does all of this in the background while you go about
your usual computer activities without being hindered or prevented
by the running applications.
Range Of Features And Applications
Norton 360 is particularly effective
at what it does because of the vast range of features and roles it
performs. Internet protection is provided by antivirus, antispyware,
rootkit detection, website authentication, and a two way firewall.
Other tools include antiphishing protection to secure your personal
details from email fraudsters, and automatic backup and restore
applications. PC tuneup effectively tweaks your Windows settings in
order to ensure that you are getting the best performance from your
PC and you also receive 10GB of free online storage for storing your
personal photos, movie clips, and music.
Improved Internet Security
Having an antivirus or an antispyware
application running on your computer is no longer enough if you are
a regular web user. Spyware, rootkits, backdoors, worms, and trojans
have become ever more popular and access to your PC can be gained
through your browser, email client, messenger, and any other
application that can connect to the Internet on your computer.
Because Norton 360 combines several
Internet security applications in one package you can be confident
that you are better protected. All of these applications run
silently in the background of your system while you continue to
browse the web or read email confident that you aren't putting your
system at risk.
Improved PC Performance
As we use our computer more regularly
it is more likely to become filled with files and Windows registry
entries. As this continues to happen it is possible that our
computers will suffer a relative dip in performance. Applications
and Windows itself may slow down and we may be presented with an
increasing number of application and system errors. In order to
prevent this Norton 360 monitors your PC and tunes your PC so that
it runs at its optimum best.
Backup And Restore Utility
The regular backing up of important
files is essential to ensuring that your personal information and
data can be quickly retrieved in the event of data loss. Doing this
manually is tiresome and it is highly likely that most people will
stop performing regular backups unless the process is automated.
Norton 360 provides the capabilities to automatically run this
backup regularly and routinely.
Multi User Pack
The standard license agreement that
can be purchased with Norton 360 is a three user pack but there are
also five user packs available. This means that a single license can
be installed on three or five separate computers within your home
providing protection and optimization for the whole family or your
entire home network. If your computers are networked, a single
insecure system puts all the other network users at risk so ensuring
that all computers are secure is important.
Norton 360 Conclusion
Norton 360, compatible with Windows
XP and Windows Vista is a powerful suite of security and PC
performance tools. It can be used to protect up to five home
computers quickly and easily and can also be used to routinely run
backups preventing data loss. Support is free and provided by phone
or by email for added convenience. Licenses are for a one year
subscription, which also provides you with all updates and downloads
over the space of that year. Out of date security software is nearly
as ineffective as having no security software at all.
Protecting Your Personal Information
With Norton Confidential
more from Symantec
We use the Internet
for a lot more than we ever have done previously. Online banking,
online shopping, and online bill payment are all convenient ways to
manage finances and undertake certain tasks using the Internet.
Unfortunately, with this convenience comes an increased risk of
identity theft or the theft of your personal data. Most Internet
browsers provide a way to check that a website you are using is
secure, but that isn't always enough and a lot of people routinely
ignore Windows messages informing of a potentially unsafe website.
Protecting Yourself Against Online
Norton Confidential can protect
against the numerous methods of online theft that can occur. The
secure storage of passwords is an extremely beneficial feature while
the capacity to prevent known crimeware and malicious applications
from running on your system offers the utmost in online transaction
security. Norton Confidential can be combined with other online
security applications to provide a web of protection against all
varieties of online threat.

Included in your subscription plan is
free security and software updates over that period. If you purchase
a twelve month license then you will receive free updates over this
period of twelve months. This ensures that your online protection is
up to date and that you are protected against the latest threats to
Secure Password Storage
Almost every online financial website
requires username and password login. Using a different password for
each of these sites, as is recommended, makes it incredibly
difficult to remember them all easily. However it isn't safe to
store a Word or other office application file that contains these
passwords. Norton Confidential includes a secure password storage
feature. This enables easy access to the passwords you need without
providing a similar level of access to others.
Prevent Malicious Application Access
Norton Confidential can scan your
system to locate any crimeware and subsequently remove it. It is
also able to prevent the downloading of malicious applications.
Because Norton Confidential is always on and scanning your system it
can keep you permanently protected against some forms of malware
that can potentially lead to the theft of your personal data and
information. It can also prevent key loggers and screen capture
utilities from recording your actions while visiting websites, which
is another way that passwords can be stolen and retrieved.
Integration With Other Norton
Security Software Applications
Integrating the Norton Confidential
application with other Norton products gives you a broader and more
rounded protection when online. The Norton Protection Center acts as
the central dashboard for the various applications you have
installed providing easy access to each and providing you with
details of your security settings and performance. The more Norton
applications you add the better the overall picture and the greater
the level of protection offered. The Norton Protection Center,
though, ensures that you are not overwhelmed by a large number of
applications and scans from various programs.
Security updates are released
regularly by Symantec providing users with the best protection
against the very latest threats. When you purchase a twelve month
Norton Confidential license you also receive twelve months of
security updates and software updates. By keeping everything up to
date in this way you are affording yourself the best level of
protection that the application offers.
Norton Confidential Conclusion
Norton Confidential is a handy online
security tool that can prevent the theft of your financial and other
personal details. Secure password storage combines with a crimeware
and spyware scanner to ensure that whenever you log on to the
Internet to make a financial transaction you are safe to do so. By
taking advantage of the regular Symantec updates you can stay
protected against all of the latest threats and you can take
advantage of any new features with the free downloads.
Norton Internet Security 2008 Vs
more from Symantec
Introduction To Norton
Norton products have
long been a popular choice for users wishing to protect themselves
against the various threats that exist online. As well as providing
invaluable software they are also renowned for their extensive
definition databases and regular updates for the databases and the
software. Two of the latest incarnations of software are full
Internet security suites with added extras. This is how they
Similarities Between Norton 360 And
Norton Internet Security 2007
Both Norton 360 and Norton Internet
Security 2008 provide virus and spyware protection. They also both
include a firewall for enhanced security and offer intrusion
prevention, antiphishing, and vulnerability assessment. Both
applications can also be fully automated to run in the background of
your system while you continue to use your PC and Internet
connection as and when you need to.
Protection And Beyond From Norton 360
Both offer an excellent level of
protection against various potential threats, but Norton 360 takes
it a step further. As well as preventing and removing these threats
Norton 360 can validate whether a site is authentic or not providing
even greater online protection. It will also optimize your PC. PC
and hard drive cleaning is a valuable step in the fight against
spyware and other malicious applications.
Local And Online Backups
Norton 360 can be used to create a
backup of important files onto local media devices and online.
Backing up files is the most powerful to protect against a loss of
data. Data loss can occur for a variety of reasons including
infection by a spyware or virus. Local backups are a convenient and
safe way to protect your data while online backups provide the added
protection of having a backup away from your existing computer. All
backed up data can be securely and effectively encrypted to ensure
it retains its integrity.
Cleaning Up After Infection
When spyware and viruses strike they
have a tendency to leave a trail behind them. As well as potentially
causing software conflicts and system errors this can be a huge
waste of hard drive space. Even when we manually delete files or
registry entries the hard drive does not allow for this action and
large chunks of your hard drive can become unusable despite being
empty. Defragmenting your disk drive is an effective technique made
simpler and more effective by the Norton 360 application.
Optimizing Your Hard Drive For
As well as performing hard drive
defragmentation Norton 360 will also optimize the hard drive. By
tweaking your settings and removing unwanted files and histories it
can speed up your online activities and improve the overall
performance of your system and software. Norton 360 automatically
and routinely completes this effective task for you ensuring that
you can always get the best out of your browser and your system.
Norton Internet Security 2008
Norton Internet Security 2008 is a
powerful protection and prevention suite that is ideal for the
regular Internet user. It will help to beat spyware, viruses, and
various other online threats. It is updated regularly to ensure that
you are protected against the latest threats before they can become
a major problem for your system.
Norton 360 – Above And Beyond
However, Norton 360 excels because it
takes this process a step further. As well as preventing and
protecting against online threats it will also ensure that your
system is properly optimized to give you the best performance
possible. By defragmenting the hard drive, providing local and
online backups, and optimizing your hard drive Norton 360 becomes an
even more invaluable suite to have on your system.
Norton Internet Security 2008 Versus
Norton Antivirus 2007
more from Symantec
security software is a powerful range of applications that help to
prevent and remove online threats. As well as providing standalone
applications to deal with specific families of threats, such as
antispyware to combat spyware, there are also several all-in-one
suites. These suites provide a full compliment of applications that
protect against some or all of the prevalent online threats. As well
as spyware these applications can protect against all forms of
virus, spam, and a horde of other malware applications.
Norton Antivirus 2007
Norton Antivirus 2008 is the latest
member of the Norton Antivirus series. It provides real time
protection and a scanning function so that you can prevent the
downloading and installing of infected files and you can clean or
remove any files that have become infected. As well as providing
this protection against viruses, Antivirus 2008 will help to combat
the onslaught of spyware that can be picked up whenever you or an
application on your system is online. The threat of viruses and
spyware are just as much a problem on email, messenger, and file
sharing applications as they are when surfing the net and
Norton Internet Security 2007
Norton Internet Security 2008 is a
suite of Internet security applications that includes the Norton
Antivirus 2008 application. As well as providing protection against
spyware and viruses Internet Security 2008 also provides a firewall
that massively improves your online protection. A firewall can be
used as a solid line of defense to prevent any unauthorized access
to or from the Internet. This means hackers will not be able to find
a way into your system.
Phishing emails have become an
increasingly persistent problem. Emails are sent that attempt to
mimic genuine emails from genuine organizations. But when users
click a link and fill in their details this submission is forwarded
to an unauthorized third party. The Norton Internet Security 2008
suite includes protection against phishing scams and will also
ensure that any websites you visit are authentic.
Definition And Signature Database
Both Norton Antivirus 2008 and
Internet Security 2008 are backed up by an extensive definition and
signature database. These databases ensure that the Norton security
software on your system are fully equipped with the appropriate
knowledge to protect against all of the latest and most damaging
threats. Updates are released very regularly so you can be confident
that when there is a new threat you will be one of the first to hear
about it and one of the first to be protected against it regardless
of the application you choose.
The Norton Protection Center
In order to effectively combine the
different applications Norton Internet Security 2008 uses a
dashboard or central user interface called the Norton Protection
Center. This simple and intuitive interface provides a summary of
protection currently offered to your system. It also enables you
quick access to all of the different applications. Network
protection data is also available.
Do You Require Norton Antivirus 2008
Norton Antivirus 2008 is a powerful
security application that protects against spyware and viruses. It
is backed up by regular and extensive updates to the software and to
the definition database it uses to identify and beat these threats.
For further protection against other equally potent and damaging
online threats you should consider upgrading to the Norton Internet
Security 2008 suite. This package includes the benefits of the
Antivirus application as well as the benefits of a firewall,
anti-phishing protection, and more.
Norton System Works Versus Norton
System Works Premier
more from Symantec
Norton System Works is
an award winning PC utilities suite but it offers much more than
this. It will effectively locate and remove viruses from your system
while ensuring that your hard drive is properly optimized and
cleaned for better system performance. It will also protect against
spyware attempting to infect your computer and help to prevent
worms, hackers, and other undesirables from your system.
Windows Tune Up Options
The Windows tune up facility enables
you to improve or restore your system's performance. Spyware and
viruses leave behind nasty traces even when they are effectively
removed. Entries in the registry can conflict and almost certainly
become obsolete. In the case of some online threats the existence of
a registry entry can cause the application to install onto your
computer again. Both the standard and premier editions of Norton
System Works will optimize your hard drive and remove unnecessary
temp files and browsing history.
Backup And Restore Functions
Both versions also provide an
enhanced backup and restore feature. This enables you to create a
backup of your entire system and to use this backup in the event
that you need it. It is also possible to recover from poor or
incomplete software installations. Again, these tend to leave
footprints all over your system files and settings but the Norton
System Works application will clean up for you. Failing this it
provides the opportunity to restore your hard drive to an earlier
The Difference Between The Standard
And Premier Versions
The major difference between Norton
System Works and Norton System Works Premier is that the Premier
package includes massively enhanced backup facilities. As well as
creating a backup of your entire system you can also back up your
most essential files to a local or remote media device. CD, DVD,
flash drive, or external hard drive can be used to store the data
and files you most covet.
Norton System Works Basic
As well as the standard and Premier
edition there is also a Norton System Works basic edition. This
feature limited application enables users to fix Windows errors and
clean their system of temporary files, Internet cache, and other
memory dependent areas of your Windows PC. It also provides the
functionality of being able to undo a bad software installation.
Making The Right Choice
Whether you choose the basic,
standard, or premier edition will depend on your needs. All of the
features offered are beneficial should the need to use them arise.
Software installation failures and a need to backup your system is
certainly not unusual from time to time. Being able to backup all of
your important files and data is also a crucial component of each of
the applications. Of course, the majority of Internet users are
painfully aware of the danger that spyware and viruses pose to an
Increased Functionality And Increased
Norton System Works Premier is the
obvious leader in terms of functionality because it provides
everything that the other two versions offer and includes the
