Norman Antivirus Editor's Review

There is hardly any computer user who does not require protection from various types of malware and internet based threats these days. Instances of malware creators and hackers breaking into top corporate firms and celebrity websites can send a chill down your spine, truth be told! While picking an antivirus suite from myriads of existing contenders is not easy, you may try Normal Antivirus. Not to be confused with more popular Norton Antivirus, this suite is offered by a Norwegian computer security company and they have been in this sector since 1984. The product focuses on simplicity of usage and good protection but the results are a mixed bag.

Norman Antivirus is sold with a 3 PC license but you can choose the years of protection for your systems. The app can be installed on PCs with Windows XP SP3 and subsequent versions. The installation is standard but casual PC users may get confused. This is because Norman uses the term Security Suite for all its products including antivirus and Internet security. When you install the Antivirus, 5 components will be marked as expired- such as Anti-spam and personal firewall. The app comes with a preinstall scan component which is quite efficient.

The UI of the new version features touch-friendly controls and big buttons. There are large radio buttons and sliders for ease of usage. As it is, default security settings are pretty good for most users. The app gets good marks from leading independent virus testing labs.

The app offers good malware protection under most situations, both for eliminating existing threats and finding newer ones. Interestingly, it does not show alert when you connect a malware containing external or USB drive to the PC. When you access the drive the app kicks into action. For removing stubborn threats, a reboot may be required in some instances. It also offers protection from root kits.

Unlike some rival apps, Norman Antivirus lacks url level malware protection but it manages to thwart a good amount of malware during download. While running scans and cleaning malware, the app does not stress PC resources much. Scan speed is not bad but there are contenders that offer better results.

Norman offers local support for registered users of its security suites. It is quite prompt and you get both email and phone based support. The online FAQ is also decent.

Positive Points:
•    Minimalistic User Interface.
•    Good malware detection and cleanup.
•    Decent support.
•    Pre install scan.

Negative Points:
•    Installation may seem confusing to beginners.
•    No advanced security features.

Conclusion:
Norman Antivirus is a PC security suite aimed squarely at users who want a capable and uncomplicated solution for safeguarding their laptops and desktops. The app is simple to use and offers reasonably good performance. Its pre install scanner also works well and support options are good too. However, the installation process may seem a tad bizarre to some users. There are some contenders that pack in additional components at same price point.

Rating:3/5
