A thorough malware protection scan is faster in Norton Internet Suite 2010 than in the previous versions. At first the scan may take an hour or two. The subsequent scans, however, will take lesser time; only the initial scan will take some considerable time. This is due to Norton's intelligent scanning, which skips files that do not have any changes since the last scan. For removing malware, Norton got a score of 8 out of 10 from most benchmarking tests, reviews, and critiques of security software experts. It got a score of 7 for the test on the detection and removal of keyloggers.
When you browse the Web, Norton will warn you through its Site Safety feature if it detects websites that may contain malware. In case the user will be able to download a malware, Download Insight will be able to detect it. If a certain suspicious file begins to attack the system, the SONAR will prevent it from doing any further harm to your computer. AutoProtect will collect some samples of a suspicious file in case you download possible malware. Another good thing about the Norton Internet Security is that scanning your computer will not slow down your system despite Norton's multilayered security protection.
