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:

McAfee is a household name with several key features. Probably the most impactful feature is the money-back guarantee. If McAfee can't remove your infected virus you will get a 100% refund. Also very useful is the file shredder feature. Permanently delete files off of your PC for good. Provides protection against viruses, malware, ransomware and other online threats. How McAfee handles new suspicious threats is interesting. When McAfee encounters a suspicious program it sends data to the McAfee cloud to analyze. It will then log the program's behavior and roll back any vicious actions if the program is found to be a problem.
