Norton Security Scan is a great free antivirus. It is a free download from Google included within Google Pack; which is available here. The software installed quickly and without intervention. Upon starting the program, the software will automatically search for and download the latest definitions.  On the lower left hand corner is the ability to schedule scans. This is a great feature not normally included with other free antivirus programs. The antivirus scanning engine is very accurate and reliable given that it is based on Symantec Norton Antivirus technology.  In our tests, it found all the suspect viruses.  The performance even exceeded Free AVG, Avast on normal usage settings.  The memory and CPU utilization while scanning were also lower than the competition. Unfortunately, Norton security scan lacks an auto scanning engine. But this disadvantage can be substantially reduced given the software's ability to schedule scans.  I also often find auto scanning antivirus to use too many resources which significantly slows down everyday computing operations. But even if you decide to have an auto protection antivirus, Norton Security Scan will still give your computer additional protection because different antivirus companies discover viruses at different times. By regularly scanning with Norton Security Scan provided by the world leading antivirus company, Symantec, you can significantly reduce your risk to being susceptible to viruses.
