Frequently asked questions.

Windows 10 built-in security is good but it’s possibly not enough to offer the level of protection you want.  If you need powerful virus and malware protection for Windows 10, we recommend subscribing to trusted services like Norton AntiVirus Plus or one of the Norton 360 plans.

Antivirus software helps to protect Windows 10 devices by scanning files and processes in real time. It looks for harmful codes or patterns linked to known viruses. The software keeps a database of virus signatures and compares files on your computer with these signatures to find matches. It also examines file behavior and characteristics to detect new viruses or other types of malware. By using real-time scanning, signature-based detection, and other types of file analysis, antivirus software helps to provide virus and other malware protection for Windows 10 devices.

Windows 10 has its own built-in security, however it may not be enough to protect your device against more sophisticated online threats like ransomware. We recommend using a specialized antivirus like Norton AntiVirus Plus, which you can try it by selecting the free trial option on this page. You’ll be required to enter your payment details and when the trial ends, paid subscription starts, unless you cancel before that time.

It’s quick and simple to run Norton scans on your Windows 10 PC.

1. First open your Norton device security app.
2. If you see the “My Norton” window, next to “Device Security”, click Open.
3. In the Norton app main window, double-click Security, and then click Scans.
4. In the “Scans” window, next to “Scans and Tasks”, select one of the following:

  • Smart Scan > Go
  • Quick Scan > Go
  • Full Scan > Go
  • Custom Scan > Go, then click Run next to “Drive Scan”, “Folder Scan”, or “File Scan” to navigate to the components that you want to scan.

5. In the “Results Summary” window, click Finish.
6. If there are items that require attention, review the risks in the “Threats Detected” window.

Norton AntiVirus Plus can help protect you against phishing on your Windows 10 PC. It helps to block fraudulent websites that were created by scammers to steal your personal information, money, and passwords.
