Is My Computer Free Of Virus? Find Out With Norton Security Check

Norton Security Check is a free online service which tests your computer’s exposure to a wide range of online threats. If you don’t have any antivirus or malware detection software installed, then using this free online service will give your system a through scan to  find out if it is infected with any malware or virus. It also helps in determining the internet security needs.

This service is extremely fast and conducts five main tests while scanning your system. It performs the Hacker Exposure Check(Tests TCP ports in this phase), Windows Vulnerability Check(Checks whether network settings are secure or not), Trojan Horse Check(Checks for Trojan horses), Anti-virus Product Check ( Checks installed anti-virus products), and finally the Virus Protection Update Check(Checks whether your anti-virus definitions are up-to-date or not).

To begin, launch the site and hit the Start button under the Security Scan or Virus Detection, depending on what you want to run.

    The security scan told me that I have no virus protection, although I have a fully up-to-date version of NOD32 running. Is this a scare tactic to get people to buy Norton? Surely if they can recognize all these virus and hacker threats they ought to be able to recognize a worthy competitor's product.

      I think you are right here. I too believe that it is not transparent.

      We have recommended Windows Security Essentials to our readers when it comes to anti-virus.

    Well, I couldn't get a total scan because I'm not running Internet Explorer! LOL Like I'd want that garbage on my system…

      I will ask my authors to be more careful before reviewing such tools. Personally I find it not so useful.

      We would never recommend going for IE, either use Firefox or Chrome.
