Brief Installation Instructions

Download and run the installer. The installer will ask you several questions, and for most of them, keep the default settings.

However, select Standard Protection for the virus protection type and select Scan all known formats for scanning compressed files.

It is very important to run LiveUpdate from the Norton AntiVirus application soon after installation. Otherwise, you will not have the latest virus protection. To update your virus protection, run the Norton AntiVirus application and click the LiveUpdate button. Then click the Update Everything Now button. Restart your computer after updating your virus protection.
