symantec antivirus not updating-29

Perhaps your computer has had a virus before – whose hasn’t?

A computer virus can come in many different guises – an attachment on an email from a friend, a downloaded manual from your TV manufacturer’s website and even a link you click on from an e-newsletter.

This team of people is the backbone of our security technology and responds instantly to threats and implement real time updates to your devices to thwart threats as they happen.

Symantec’s Security Technology and Response team innovates and develops Norton’s security technologies that provide protection to your devices in five layers: file based (antivirus), network based (firewall), behavior (SONAR), reputation, and remediation. Let Norton be your personal IT team, help remove viruses, speed up your PC, or even help update your Operating System, or setup your Pinter, even help sync your smartphone.

Avast Free Antivirus 2017 in particular gives you more than many competing commercial products.

On top of excellent antivirus protection, it adds a network security scanner, a password manager, a secure browser, and more.

We are unable to guarantee functionality on any operating system that is not currently supported.

Symantec has made the strategic decision to streamline our product range in order to provide fewer, more integrated solutions for our customers.

Consequently, the decision was made to retire the PC Tools Performance Toolkit, PC Tools Registry Mechanic, PC Tools File Recover, and PC Tools Privacy Guardian products.
