If you spend a lot of time surfing the Internet, you need protection against online threats. Thanks to Norton Antivirus 2009 with Antispyware, Symantec's most popular security product, you are protected against a wide array of malicious software. Whether your are banking online, emailing friends or chatting via Instant Messaging, your protection is always on and up-to-date.


So why buy Norton Antivirus 2009 with Antispyware? Here are 3 key advantages over other antivirus programs available on the market:

  • You are protected against viruses but also spyware, which means you don't need to buy a separate antispyware program. That equates to more protection for the same price and less headaches to try and make different pieces of software work together. Recent tests done by independent security software testing firm AV-Test revealed that Norton Antivirus 2009 with Antispyware detects 98% of viruses and 95% of spyware, without false positives.

  • Get peace of mind: after an installation that typically lasts less than a minute, your PC is protected for one year against most online threats. Performance impact is minimal. Updates are automatic and frequent.

  • New for 2009: 24/7 technical support is always FREE and accessible directly from the user interface. You can choose between email, phone or even chat.


Need more details? Norton Antivirus 2009 with Antispyware protects you not only against the most common online threats such as viruses, Trojan horses, worms and spyware, but also malicious software you probably have never heard of: rootkits, bots, browser exploits and the like. Its strength is really built upon two key technologies from Symantec:

1. The Norton™ Protection System provides multiple layers of protection that work together so they neutralize threats before they even reach you:
- SONAR, Symantec's malware detection technology based on application behavior;
- IPS (Enhanced Intrusion Protection System): dedicated protection engine for multimedia attacks;
- Browser exploits protection for Internet Explorer and Firefox: vulnerabilities in browsers can't be used to install spyware or cause crashes, for instance;
- Antibot protection: so hackers can't take control of your PC;
- Norton™ Recovery Tool to repair systems that have been deeply infected and help rebooting them.

2. Virus detection via signatures: Norton Antivirus 2009 with Antispyware compares application code to known malicious software and if there's a match, the application is promptly removed.


How does Norton Antivirus 2009 with Antispyware compare to the 2008 version? There are several important differences:

  • Norton Antivirus 2009 with Antispyware is much lighter on system resources, both CPU (processor) and RAM (memory), while delivering shorter boot and scan times. Independent, third-party testing laboratory PassMark Software measured quick-scan times of just 33 seconds during evaluations in August 2008!

  • Norton™ Insight: this new community intelligence-driven technology from Symantec contributes in a large part to the quicker scan times. It flags as 'trusted' common files that do not change over time, thus eliminating the need to scan them regularly. On the other hand, files that are more at risk at checked every time.

  • The Norton™ Protection System ensures threats are neutralized before they even reach your computer.

  • A new feature called Silent Mode temporarily suspends alerts and updates so your computer is never annoyingly slowed down during gaming, movie playback or presentations, for instance.

  • Another new feature called Rapid Pulse Updates delivers protection updates to your computer every 5 to 15 minutes. More frequent updates that are smaller in size means your level of protection is always as current as possible and your computer's performance is less disrupted as they happen.
