Cool Features:

Norton Antivirus is perhaps the most well known antivirus on the market. Here are some of the features. The Proactive Exploit Protection feature actively prevents exploit techniques such as heap spray and ROP (Return Oriented Programming). The Threat Emulation feature analyzes malware that has been encrypted, packed, or obfuscated by running it in a controlled environment and evaluating it after it self-decrypts. This is a rare feature that not many other antiviruses have. Norton has a unique guarantee to its customers. If you purchase any Norton Antivirus above the basic package there is a unique guarantee. If Symantec tech support agents cannot rid your system of pesky malware, the company will refund your money.

Cool Features:

Ad-Aware's malware sandbox emulator intelligently analyzes possible threats by monitoring a potential threat in a virtual environment before it ends up on your computer. This prevents malware from ever actually doing damage on your computer. This process is done in the background. It does not require any user intervention. The Safe Browsing engine persistently checks newly browsed websites against a freshly updated list of known virus infected sites. The official Ad-Aware malware list is updated every 5-20 minutes. Ad-Aware Safe Browsing keeps you safe while you browse the web. Every new URL you visit is checked against a known blacklist of malicious sites. If you click on a dangerous link on accident then Ad-Aware Safe Browsing will immediately warn you.
