Symantec Norton AntiVirus 2004 ... technology, Norton AntiVirus 2004 provides consumers with core protection against certain emerging non-virus threats such as spyware and keystroke logging programs. Norton AntiVirus 2004 empowers home and small office users to proactively ward off privacy and security breeches that are often caused by the presence of these non-virus threats.
The new expanded threat detection capabilities of Norton AntiVirus 2004 will include scans for programs on the user's computer that can be used with malicious intent to compromise the security of a system, spy on the user's private data, or track users' online behavior. To help ensure maximum protection Norton AntiVirus 2004 will identify and block these threats at the point of entry to the system, detecting the threats during scans of email and instant message attachments, or during scheduled or on-demand system scans.
The new, real-time compressed-file scanning feature prevents users of file-exchange services from sharing or downloading infected files even if those files are compressed. Additionally, as a measure to protect users from pirated or counterfeit software, Norton AntiVirus 2004 will also now include a product activation component.
Like previous versions of the product, Norton AntiVirus 2004 will continue to help users achieve maximum protection with minimum effort by automatically scanning all files for malicious code, and automatically removing viruses, worms, and Trojan horses without requiring user intervention. Protection is further enhanced by Norton AntiVirus's consistent ability to protect automatically against both inbound and outbound online threats at all points of entry. Unlike many of its competitors, Norton AntiVirus 2004 will also install out of the box with all key protection settings and technologies active by default, including real-time scanning, automatic updating, and sophisticated heuristics.
To ensure Norton AntiVirus 2004 users' protection stays updated against new online threats, Symantec's LiveUpdate will check for new antivirus updates whenever the user is online. LiveUpdate will then automatically and unobtrusively download updates in the background to minimize disruptions, thus allowing users to achieve the continued peace of mind that comes with knowing their antivirus product is working at its best.

Waste of money - Advantages: none - Disadvantages: expensive, difficult for newbies to use, always goes wrong and messes up your new computer, cannot uninstall and keeps asking for payment!

Norton Internet Security 2004 My Zone Labs Pro expired at about the same time as my computer. The vendor of the new beast warmly recommended the above program. He made me an offer I could not afford to refuse. An OEM version for about 43 Euros, which in my neck of the woods is about 25%discount. Being a bit of a dumb-bum in computer land I was a bit apprehensive about installation without the accompanyiing literature but it was a cinch. I just put in the standard version at medium security and I've been 'frapjous' ever since. This user friendly bundle contains the old dependable antivirus (on auto enable updates ...

There was a time when Peter Norton's products were known for being mean and lean. They did their job effectively and at lighting quick speeds. Mr. Norton is now connected with Norton AntiVirus (NAV) in name alone, as the software has long been under the guidance of Symantec. While NAV could not of late truly be considered lean - as Symantec has stuffed every feature it can think of into the package - it has managed to keep up a reputation for being pretty mean to viruses. So does the dynasty keep rolling with this version? As with previous iterations, the installation for NAV 2004 is straightforward. In fact, the only difference over NAV 2003 is that NAV now ...
