Norton Security Scan Review

Felix Cheng
Free version of Symantec's antivirus scanner Norton
A review of Norton Security Scan by Felix Cheng

Norton Antivirus is both pricey and bloated, but the company behind it does have a very long history in virus detection and has a very comprehensive database of the latest threats.

With North Security Scan, you get access to Norton Antivirus definitions for free, except that Security Scan does not come with real-time protection.

Instead, this application can run a scan of your system for viruses, malware, trojans and other malicious files on a schedule or on demand.

Installation of Norton Security Scan is pretty straightforward and the user interface isn't challenging at all. Just like other antivirus programs of this caliber, it isn't the fastest but will help you out in finding unwanted malicious software on your system, but it will not remove them.

When scanning, Norton Security Scan has two standard options: Quick Scan and Full System Scan. The latter gets deep in to the filesystem and searches for malicious files while the Quick Scan option does a quick sweep.

The program also advertises commercial Norton products, but it's not necessary to install them in order to take advantage of this free scanning tool.

Norton Security Scan is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from antivirus without restrictions. Norton Security Scan is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).

This virus scanner software is filed under:
  • Norton Security Scan Download
  • Freeware Antivirus
  • Software Reviews
  • Major release: Norton Security Scan 4.6

Compatibility with this virus scanner software may vary, but will generally run fine under Microsoft Windows 10, 8, 8.1, 7, Vista and XP on either a 32-bit or 64-bit setup. A separate x64 version may be available from Symantec.
