PC Magazine described Norton as receiving their top malware removal score while generating high marks from independent labs as well. In PC World's real-world test, Norton successfully blocked, detected and disabled all malware. Overall, this particular performance earned Norton a 2nd place ranking out of all of the other software tested. While the malware tests were near perfect, the system clean-up test earned the description of "acceptable," performing with a lesser percentage of detected and disabled system infections and a lower percentage of removing all traces of discovered infections. It was pointed out however, that the Norton system is a rather lightweight program whereas other competitors take up a much more noticeable presence in your operating system. It was noted that the program added only one second to the startup time and only three seconds to the system shutdown. Scanning speed was also impressively fast. The on-demand manual scan takes only one minute and 19 seconds while the on-access scan takes only two minutes and 55 seconds.
Weighing the pros and cons and generalizing the overall performance, Norton seems a good fit for most system needs. With its touch-optimized interfaced main page it is especially compatible with Windows 8. However, the OS compatibility includes Windows Vista, Windows XP and Windows 7 as well. Some of the cons include a few short comings in the performance tests as mention above. While the program is designed with big, touch-friendly tiles and a straightforward design, some of the features may be too complicated for some users. Overall, Norton Internet Security 2013 provides strong security, fast scans and little system impact and disruption making it a great choice for most consumers.
