Online Updated Computer Antivirus Software Norton Internet Security
Key 90 Days
Version 2012 (19.x)
Released (126.96.36.199) on September 6, 2011, Norton Internet Security
2012 brought new features.One of the new features included in the
new release is Download Insight 2.0, which not only monitors files
for safety but also the stability of a given file. That means that
if a file is stable on Windows 7, but unstable on Windows XP, XP
users will be notified of the file's instability.
Enhanced removal tools are tightly integrated for better cleanup of
already infected systems. Once triggered, the new, more powerful
version of Norton Power Eraser restarts the system to locate and
remove fake antivirus software fake antivirus software and other
deeply embedded threats that are otherwise hard to remove. A new
tool called Norton Management helps manage different computers and
devices equipped with Norton software from a single location.
Other changes in this release include SONAR 4, Google Chrome
compatibility for Identity Safe and Safe Web and the ability to
store passwords and notes in the cloud. However, the License
Agreementdoes not guarantee passwords are stored securely and
provides no remedy if the cloud vault is compromised.
The user interface is also simplified with only three buttons. The
third button opens a more advanced and complicated menu, where the
user is able to manage settings and access different product
features. The CPU meter that was removed from Norton 2011, also
makes a return (only on the "advanced screen").
Combining the netbook and desktop line, Norton Internet Security
integrates Bandwidth metering, which controls the product's traffic
usage and takes it down to minimum if necessary. This is ideal for
networks with limited traffic. Also, the user interface window
adjusts accordingly to the size of the computer screen.
This version of Norton Internet Security includes several Easter
eggs. Pressing Shift+1, 2, 3 or 4 would change the theme to default
background (plain black), ray, animals, and floral respectively.
Also holding Control + Win Key + Alt while pressing "performance
button" to activate "Crazy Flip", which will make the window flip
head over heels. The effect would continue until the main window is
closed and reopened.
Furthermore, scans are no longer scheduled through the Windows Task
Scheduler, but through the Symantec's proprietary one, which
performs tasks while the computer is idle (i.e., when the user is
away from the computer).
