Most free and low-end security solutions help make sure viruses don’t sneak onto your PC. Unfortunately, viruses are just one out of many dangers online. You also have to worry about identity thieves, social media scams, dangerous online transactions and email phishing schemes. Norton AntiVirus Basic protects your PC to help keep you safe from today’s sneaky cybercriminals and sophisticated online threats.
More PC Magazine Editors' Choice Awards Than Any Other Security Company
Powered by 24x7 threat monitoring and a global security network, Norton AntiVirus Basic is designed to detect and destroy even brand-new online threats. And when it comes to online safety, you don’t want to be using last-to-know security. Bonus: You won’t be bombarded with the annoying ads you see in free software.
With Norton AntiVirus Basic, you can fill your PC with years of photos, music, files and financial documents without worry. Automatic, behind-the-scenes updates ensure you’ll always have the latest protection for your PC—and all of your valuable files.
Antivirus is in our DNA. Norton created the original antivirus software in 1989, and more than 25 years later we still set the bar for speed and performance in security software. Only Norton has won PC Magazine’s Editors’ Choice Award 37 times—more than any other security company.

No need to start a new subscription. You’ll only pay the prorated price for your new service.

2Virus Protection Promise: To be eligible for the Virus Protection Promise, you must have a qualifying Norton subscription and unless you have Norton Small Business, you must also have purchased, renewed or upgraded that Norton subscription directly from Symantec, or activate automatic renewal with Symantec. If a Norton expert is unable to remove the virus from your device, then you may receive a refund based on the actual price paid for the current term of your qualifying Norton subscription. If you purchase a Norton bundle (a qualifying Norton subscription purchased with another Norton offering), your refund will be limited to the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of your qualifying Norton subscription for the current term, not to exceed the total bundled price paid. Or, if your bundled purchase contains a qualifying Norton subscription with a non-Norton product, your refund will be limited to the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of only your Norton qualifying subscription for the current term, not to exceed the total bundled price paid. Any refund will be net of any discounts or refunds received and less any shipping, handling and applicable taxes, except in certain states and countries where shipping, handling and taxes are refundable. The refund does not apply to any damages incurred as a result of viruses. See Norton.com/guarantee for details including qualifying Norton subscriptions.
