Are these new features useful, or just interesting? This review will look into how Norman Antivirus 2014 attempts to differentiate itself from other similar programs, and other factors you should know before settling on the program. It you are thinking of buying this program, then it will be worth your while to read this review.

Features of Norman Antivirus 2014

Aside from the normal malware and rootkit detection and deletion features found on most antivirus programs, there are two features unique to this software. Norman Antivirus is able to connect with software that needs the Internet, and it writes special rules for the programs. This ensures that you won’t suffer any malware infection. Also, this program is able to scan common hacker files, like PDFs, Office and Flash, for suspicious coding. When a file like this is found, it is placed in a virtual sandbox. There, the malicious code activates. While the virus thinks that it is destroying the computer, it is really harmless.

Ease of Use of Norman Antivirus

Like most antivirus software, this program runs automatically, though some human interaction may be required to customize the settings. Otherwise, this program is very easy to use.

Customer Support Quality

If there is one place where Norman Antivirus 2014 suffers, it is customer support. The support is decent, but you have to pay to call the company. Since few software developers force this on their customers, it is very inconvenient. The support you get will help you, but it might be better to email them instead, as this does not cost anything.

Main Advantages of Norman Antivirus

One big advantage to Norman Antivirus is the sandbox feature. This allows any detected virus to harmlessly activate, without affecting the system. By doing this, it ensures that the virus does not replicate continuously until it really does infect your system. The other advantage is this program’s ability to make rules for programs that connect to the Internet, because this is where most viruses come from. While it still does not keep a computer safe 100% of the time, it does a great job.
