Yes, you heard me loud and clear, no fake phone activation, no crack, serial or keygen needed. This is a genuine free Norton AntiVirus or also known as Norton Security Scan made free by Google and Norton Symantec.
Google Pack is offering a free edition of Norton Security Scan, better known as the striped down version of Norton AntiVirus 2009. Visit the official website and download the Free Norton AntiVirus
Google Pack (Pack discontinued by Google).
What is Norton Security Scan?
Norton Security Scan is a software tool designed to help you understand if your computer is currently protected from known threats. Norton Security Scan will scan your computer and identify if there are existing viruses, worms, spyware, unwanted adware or Trojans residing on your computer. Norton Security Scan checks to see how your computer is currently protected.
So, what is the difference between Norton 360 and all the other products compare to the free edition of Norton Security Scan?
Norton Security Scan does not integrate with the operating system to provide real time protection against viruses and spyware, but instead scans your hard drive for viruses and spyware “on demand”, or at a given point in time. It only removes viruses when they are found during a scan, and does not remove them from the PC at the time of infection. It is the lack of real time protection (and integration between Norton Security Scan and the operating system) that ensures that Norton Security Scan can co-exist with other Norton products.
There you go, the only drawback for the free edition Norton Security Scan is the lack of real time protection, you can over come this by manually (right click and select ‘scan with norton antivirus’) scan any files you think that are suspicious, for your information it is only available in both Windows XP and Windows Vista.
When it comes to antivirus programs, my advice is don’t go for the crack version downloaded from any torrent websites, it is not worth the risk, hackers knew that the real reason you’re downloading these security software is because your computer is not protected. Always go for the free edition if you can’t afford a genuine copy. For a list of free antivirus, visit this post.
