Can I use Norton to check if a file I want to download is "safe" for use?
Hi. I have a question I hope someone can help or point me in the right direction.
Can I use Norton to check if a file I want to download and use, is really "safe" for use?
Here's my case. I want to download an application from a particular site. It's a tool created by another user of said site. And it's being used by several other users. It provides cool and needed functionality for the users of the site. However it's not a product of the site itself (which I trust), but from a user that I do not know, that apparently also is on that site. My concern is that although this tool provides grreat functionality to its users, and lots of other users are using it, .... I'm concerned it could be like a trojan or somehting. Pretending and providing cool and great functionality to its users, but in the background spying on personal inforamtion.
Is there anyway I can use Norton to check if this app/tool is really safe?
Or can Norton (company) investigate this particular app/tool?
Hope someone can help.
