    "Works extremely well"

    October 2, 2012  |   By Matt1986Wilson

    Pros

    Very fast and seamless installation
    SONAR picks up everything I've been able to throw at it
    Fantastic at prevention
    Whitelisting means that scans are really quick and it focuses on only the files and folders it finds suspicious. It ignores clean and known files, folders and programs, which is a huge plus.

    Cons

    Doesn't have a Firewall
    A licence is pretty expensive
    Might not be able to remove all viruses from an already infected PC

    Summary

    This is a fantastic program...on a clean PC. On one that is already infected you might want to use MalwareBytes AntiMalware first before you install Norton. That said, its prevention is second to none. Also, I find that Norton's Firewall in the Internet Security isn't that great anyway. That's why I choose the antivirus and a separate firewall program that I know can do the job. Comodo being my top pick. Although it has yet to be compatible with Windows 8 so I'm using the default Firewall in Windows 8 for now. Anyway, to sum up...I recommend Norton Antivirus 2013 wholeheartedly. I do indeed and indeed I do. :)

    You do know some stores sell it for free after rebates? Check the sale ads at Frys. They have these deals throughout the year.
