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.
F-Secure implements enhanced firewall protection by blocking exploit attacks that attempt to download malicious files. It will also warn you if your network experiences DNS hijacking. F-Secure does have a spam filter for unwanted emails which can be useful in Outlook, Thunderbird, Eudora and Opera. F-Secure will enhance your search experience by providing safe, questionable, and dangerous icons next to search results.
