Fresh And Improved Features Of Norton’s Internet Security 2011 Software Programs

By Ben Pate

You should always be concerned about the security of your computer and take advantage of comprehensive software. If you do not take precautions, you may run into major problems down the line that can affect your PC quite drastically. However, there are many great options out there designed to protect your system, one of which is the Norton software suite.

Right off the bat, we noticed there are many great new features included in this new version of the Norton security software. Some changes have been made to the user interface. There are some users that may find a bit of a learning curve with the new interface, but overall it makes for much smoother navigation.

Many improvements to all of the different major components of the suite have been updated since the last version. One of these is Norton System Insight, which prompts you when you are using unnecessary system resources. This update extends the functionality of the feature, allowing you to click on spikes on the system performance map to view the cause.

The Norton SONAR component has also received an update in Norton’s internet security software service review and brings an interesting new feature. This component has always been responsible for searching for potentially dangerous program behavior. However, you can now also control how the technology searches for threats and assigns protective measures from within Settings.

One new feature that we found extremely interesting is the ability to scan your Facebook wall. This is a feature that we have not seen in many other software suites. This feature will allow you to detect any potentially dangerous links or scams posted on your wall.

The bootable recovery tool has been updated to include support for users without DVD drives such as netbook owners. You can now automatically create USB, DVD, or CD bootable drives from within the tool. This is a feature that we many similar software offerings simply have not integrated.

When it comes to the overall performance of the software, it has performed quite impressively in the majority of tests. First of all, the installation process is about as easy, fast, and painless as any other similar software suite. However, once installed the product also meets and surpasses most other software in industry standard performance benchmarks.

System resources are often used up by programs that are left running, such as anti-virus software. Even the time it takes to turn off and turn on your computer to the overall performance of applications can be affected by this type of software. Luckily, in our tests there was only less than a second difference during boot up and shutdown of the system when the program is running.

Norton review definitely provides one excellent option for a cost effective, comprehensive software solution. This is, in our opinion, certainly a major advancement over the last iteration of the top security software and a welcomed improvement.
