Hi,

I just would like to know if Norton 360 covers also the malwares ? Or if I should run an another soft for that like malwarebytes ?

Thanks!

Re: Malwares

Malware (not malwares), viruses, trojans and adware are all covered by modern day antiviruses. Including Norton. MalwareBytes AntiMalware is now just MalwareBytes. I know longer use MalwareBytes as a second opinion scanner since there are many other portable ones. Hitman Pro, Zemana Antimalare, Emsisoft Emergeny Kit, Norton Power Eraser, Avira PC Cleaner and Kaspersky Virsu removal tool.

@Terath: 

1. Please note that Norton 360 is a discontinued product. You may consider upgrading your N360 to Norton Security Premium. For more info, you may read this page. At least, plz keep your N360 up-to-date always.

Again, use NPE with caution.

2. You may make the best of MBMA if your PC is PUP-infected. What's more important is that you had better learn how to keep said PUP (Potentially Unwanted Programs) at bay.

And, you had better back up your system regularly.

OFF: It will be a while before you can run Avira PC Cleaner.

update: the user may remove Avira PC Cleaner later - note that app won't show up in the programs list. Just saying...

Re: Malwares

Avira PC clean is a portable program. Hence why it is not listed in program files. Everything I recommended is fully portable.
