Protecting your computer against online malware threats is more than an option, it is a necessity if you plan to have a functional PC for more than a few days. Nonetheless, you can still choose which security product you like best, and if you are still looking for alternatives you can try Norman Security Suite.
Due to this application, you will be able to regularly scan your computer and make sure no virus, rootkit or trojan has infiltrated your PC.
There are several types of scan you can launch, namely quick, full or custom. The last mode allows you to choose which computer areas you want to examine.
The first two of them depend on the amount of time you have at your disposal, as the first one will take less time to complete, but will scan only the most common areas where malware typically resides, while the full mode is more thorough in its analysis, but usually takes more time to finish.
You can rely on Norman Security Suite to schedule a virus scan, but you can also schedule tasks for clearing the software history or making a system check.
Since it is a security suite, the application comes with more than just antivirus protection, as it also integrates a firewall that can be used to restrict or filter Internet and network connections. It also features parental controls that can help adults protect their kids when browsing the web.
All in all, Norman Security Suite could provide you with most, if not all, the tools your PC might require to remain malware-free, while also benefitting from the firewall, antispam and parental controls. You will need to buy a license if you want to use these features beyond the evaluation period.
Norman Security Suite ReviewRead more
how's it going guys we're going to go ahead and review Norman Security Suite 11 now this program it seems new to me I don't know for how long they've been around but I wanted to go ahead and take a look at them and see how their security suite works and see how it looks like now in order to really find out how they do we're going to go ahead and take a look at pc magazines review on them and it looks here like they only gave them two out of five circles i like to call them stars but two out of five stars here and editor rating was just fair now let's take a look at the pros and cons that they said about Norman security suite 11 for the pros you just move this to the left real quick the pros they say decent score in our hands on malware blocking test so they did test it and it did decent in the malware blocking spam filter blocked no valid mail spam filter blocked no valid mail ok so the spam filter looks like it was working fine that's a pro now let's take a look at a con the cons here sorry guys i'm assuming zoom back in for you guys the cause this has no protection against malicious fishing so that sucks you guys are vulnerable to phishing attacks now fishing is when they take you to a website that looks like it's real like for example Facebook they'll take you to facebook page fabricated facebook page and then have you log in to a fake page and that's how they get your login info and steal your info alright so that's fishing but it looks like it does not protect against that or exploit URLs which is the same thing it makes you think it's a website that's you know that's a real website but in reality it's a fake website simple firewall vulnerable to attack so the firewall is not very good on Norman Security Suite 11 rudimentary parental control we will take a look at that mist porn and our tests now I won't be testing this on porn sites with you guys but we will be looking at it here in a bit spam filter missed much spam largest performance hit on our tests so it looks like it takes a lot of performance bottom line is that Norman Security Suite 11 includes all the components you'd expect in all in a suite unfortunately none of them proved impressive and testing all right so it looks like PC Magazine didn't give them a really good score here now it does MSRP for 60 95 that is kind of freaking pricey I seen other total security packages from other companies for like 30 bucks so yeah that that's that's kind of pricey guys but this is a website here i will post link on the description of the video for the website or you can download a free trial right here you click on this button for a free trial and when you do it'll ask you for your email name email and country it'll they'll send you an email and in that email you can once you confirm your email account then they'll let you download it once you download and install it this is what it looks like here this is a free trial now what I like about this program is it's really easy to use especially for beginner users right it's got the scan button here check for updates and the quarantine right so you can look at your quarantine objects right off the bat those three buttons are the most important in any anti-virus program or a security suite I like that about it when we click on scan computer if they have the option for a quick scan full scan and custom let's go ahead and do a quick scan to test it out can't do a full scan because that will take forever guys probably even a couple of hours you can maximize and minimize here to see what's going on will minimize the scan for now can look at it later and it does put it here in the bottom for you to look at it down here in the bottom guys that's where you can go ahead and click on it and see the scan is going let's click on the check for updates button it'll check for updates on the right hand side it looks like no new updates are available but it'll do it here on the right hand side quarantine button it'll we don't have nothing there yet we're still scanning that four percent but if it does find anything it'll throw it on here and you should be able to remove if you notice here gives you the option to remove and to restore if it does find a virus all right let's go ahead and take a look at the tasks button here this is where you can go ahead and clear program history the screensaver scanner if if you think your screen I don't know this this uh this feature seems kind of outdated you know who uses malicious screensavers nowadays but anyway some screen savers are malicious so it'll check that for you so that's good System Check is enabled monitors your system for malicious behavior that's good always keep tight enabled guys scheduled virus scan enabled alright and you can always add a task here and you can name it sked the time you know that it's the time you want to do it insist an impact you can you know if you want it to really normal impact or reduce or low that's the performance what it's going to do and you can go ahead and create those scheduled scan so that's how you do a scheduled scan on this program you go into your tasks and you go to scheduled virus scan and that's where you can do that guys you can even click on this little this little pencil that's the edit button guys when you click on that you can schedule a scan right there also what does this play button do though okay that's just showing that there's a scam going on right now it's still at four percent that's a quick scan too I don't know what's going on there guys alright let's go back let's look under the settings now here make sure you always have real-time protection on personal firewall on parental control we've still got to configure that will take a look at it here in a bit anti-spam is on intrusion guard privacy tools all this stuff is good so make sure you keep that and here's our free trial we can tell that we have 21 29 days left and if you like this program you want to buy it you just click on the Update license button here and it'll take you to the purchase page now let's go ahead and take a look at this parental control we're going to click on the pencil we're going to set an administrative password we're just going to put password hopefully they don't want something too complex and we're going to choose teenager and create all right now we're both looking at this for the first time guys all right so profile administrator system user so we're going to go ahead and select Lewis here that looks like it's a system user new profile new password we're just going to put password that's password profile teenager create and here we are all right we should be able to edit stuff here and there it is now where do we actually choose what this person can do or not I think that's why pc magazine that had said it had rudimentary parental control so i don't see anything on here to UM to be able to do that ok here we are all we can do is change the password where that's it yeah guys this is right here we are cool alright so we got to go to profiles and then here you can choose from a child teenager and adult let's choose teenager and here we are pornography let's just say to turn that off gambling off abortion off Alcohol Tobacco a partial nudity criminal skills turn I'm going to turn everything off here or wait is it when it's green is a blocking your awareness to the left it's not blocking it's hard to tell guys but we doesn't really matter all we got to know about this program we can you know we do commit to this program you can find out later but we just wanted to know if you can do this and we can so we can block pornography gambling abortion and calls weapons file file sharing you can keep that on you download music whatever whatever gaming we can keep that so there it is guys just wanted to show you guys you can you can select all this it's not really that complex so it's really easy to use so I'm pretty sure you guys can appreciate that so there it is guys that's parental control that's the parental control feature on here that's about it guys that solve this normal security suite has 4 11 for 60 bucks I don't recommend this program for 60 bucks i'm going to give it a bad review also just like pc magazine did just because I mean the price on it what I do like about it is that it's easy to use the scan check for updates and quarantine buttons are just right there right these buttons here those are the most important in any program and they're just right there really easy to get to that's what I like about Norman but the price tag is high and the parental control is rudimentary it doesn't it doesn't seem to be very young it just seems very basic you can't really get into detail I would like to have a feature we can block actual websites you know you select which websites but there it is guys Norman Security Suite 11 thanks for watching guys don't forget to subscribe I'm always making software
