Norton Security Scan is a tool of most interesting guaranteed by Symantec. A completely gratuitous option that we can install in our computer and that will be in charge to review in real time the possible threats in our system.

It is not a anti-virus proper, because the certain thing is that this tool will not disinfect our computer. However, it is of most powerful at the time of identifying and indicating the potentially dangerous threats, because it uses the same data base that the payment version, Norton Antivirus.

Another interesting point to its favor is that it allows us to program searches, thus, although it is not running in real time, we will be able to analyze our system at certain moments as in the starting or to one hour certain.

Account with a really simple interface. One first screen through which we activated the analysis, showing later a summary of everything what it has been found in our computer, indicating itself the complete route of the affected files. Also, a connection to the webpage of the manufacturer is facilitated to us in whom the threat at issue is spoken to us a little, giving data us about its danger and of how we can eliminate it of the system without generating no type of damage to the same.
