Security threats are just around the corner on the Internet these days and protecting your computer against them is compulsory. Whenever you go online and you download a file, click a link, or even complete a survey, your PC is in danger of getting infected by various types of malware. A strong security solution is required to shield your system against worms, Trojans and hackers.
Norton 360 can be considered a computer security suite that has everything required to protect your PC. This compact package includes an antivirus tool, firewall, anti-malware, a backup system and a PC tune up utility, all the necessary elements needed to protect you against any threat.
The interface of Norton 360 is intuitive enough to enable not only experts, but also novices to operate it successfully. Each function is neatly organized and every button brings up additional features.
For instance, one of the sections is dedicated to the actual scanning of the PC, while also enabling you to choose the drive, folder or file you want to scan, as well any Facebook link from your wall.
The Identity section allows you to take all the necessary measures for protecting your online usernames, passwords or other sensitive data. So as to prevent phishing, you can even rely on Norton 360 to display full details about the current website or block malicious sites.
This software can also be used to create backups for your most important files and folders, to the location you specify, as often as you choose, or on the spot. Needless to say, you can also restore your items when you need to use them again.
The Tune Up section module provides a set of utilities for disk optimization, temporary file cleanup, diagnostic report, or startup manager. These are meant to optimize your system, resulting in improved execution speeds and overall improved performance.
Due to all these features, Norton 360 makes for a complete security suite that is not only capable of ensuring top-notch protection for your PC, but also packs a valuable backup and computer tune up solution.
