Hi Steven,

All Norton antivirus products protect against malware, spam, malicious email attachments and online threats, and come with browser extensions for Internet Explorer, Edge, Chrome and Firefox to block malicious websites.

Norton's malware engine scans for known malware and uses heuristic monitoring to watch for behavioral changes and other signs of previously unseen, "zero-day" malware.
Norton will upload suspicious new files to Norton's cloud labs for analysis, along with basic information about your computer. You can opt out if you're worried about privacy. New malware signatures are sent out several times daily to Norton's 175 million users.

All Norton Windows antivirus products include the ID Safe password manager, and there's also a Silent mode that suppresses popups, updates and interruptions.

Their protection may be very good, but Norton's antivirus products take up too many system resources while they're scanning. They also come without standard creature comforts such as a hardened browser or file shredding and encryption. You can get the same or better level of protection with less system impact and more extra goodies.

I hope this helps.
