Norton had a bad reputation of using too much system resources and eventually slowing down the system, that reputation has faded away since 2012 when Symantec started to improve the performance of their security products. In fact, Norton Antivirus 2014 is now one of the best performing security product for Windows. Norton like other security firms has stopped using a version number on their interface. We added 2014 to the title to distinguish it from the previous edition.
Norton Antivirus 2014 installs in less than a minute, uses minimal system resources and runs tasks in the background. It uses the same Windows 8 matched touch friendly interface that was introduced in the previous 2013 edition. Norton has not added any new features to this years’ edition, however the existing features have been improved.
