Norton AntiVirus by Symantec

[Norton AntiVirus] Norton AntiVirus automatically keeps virus definitions updated to provide continuous Internet and e-mail protection. It combines virus-detection capabilities with updating and scanning technologies to make it easy for users to secure their systems against malicious code.

Norton AntiVirus also is an integral component of Symantec Norton SystemWorks 2005 suite. It guards against malicious code in ActiveX controls and Java applets as well as against worms, Trojan horses, and password stealers.

The application's key features include automatic checking for and updating of virus definitions; pop-up messages if virus definitions become dangerously out-of-date; automatic scanning of program and document files as they are downloaded; compressed file-scanning; automatic scanning of e-mail attachments before the user saves, launches, or otherwise accesses the attachments; an enhanced interface that integrates an e-mail/Web status panel for easy configuration; and a bootable CD providing easy recovery after a virus emergency.
