Scan with Norton Security

Now that you’ve made the right decision to install Symantec’s Norton Security, follow these steps to protect yourself from all sorts of security threats starting with removing viruses and malware.

  1. First, if you don’t already have Norton Security you will need to get it from here.
  2. Now that you’ve downloaded Norton Security, go ahead and install it from the installation file that you downloaded from the Norton Security website.
  3. Once you have successfully installed Norton Security, the next thing you will want to do is update the virus and malware definitions using the Norton Security Live Update service.

    1. Open Norton Security and click the Security tab.
    2. Then click on the Live Update icon.
    3. Repeat this process until you get this screen. Depending on your internet connection speed, this could take a bit of time so be patient.
    4. The next step is to click the Scan icon. If this is the first time you’re performing a scan on your system after installing Norton Security you will want to select the "Full System Scan" option.

      Note: A Quick Scan will take a lot less time but it will scan the most common and significant system files that are usually affected by security vulnerabilities.
