Minimal impact on PC resources
Useful bundled backup tool
Highly impressive browsing protection
Anti-ransomware works – but could be improved

Norton AntiVirus Plus was previously known as AntiVirus Basic but was revamped to AntiVirus Plus – with several additional features you can read about in our Norton review – back in 2019. It offers top-quality virus definitions, and a very light touch when it comes to resource usage. In fact, according to PassMark’s most recent rankings, Norton has the least impact on the performance of a PC compared to rival security suites.

Features are present in spades, too, with some of the highlights being top-notch browsing protection, an intelligent firewall, PC maintenance utilities (including an informative Startup Manager that could streamline your PC’s boot times) and a bundled backup tool with 2GB of online storage.
