Every year brings new threats to school PCs and 2010 is no different. With everything from scareware to rogue search engine results, it’s a dangerous world out there. A sneak peek at the next generation of protection is available from Symantec with the public beta of Norton’s Internet Security 2011
. On top of traditional virus signatures as well as Norton’s trusted file approach, Norton Security 2011 adds a Power Eraser to protect against fake antivirus messages that are becoming so common these days as well as more browser support, scanning of instant messages and the ability to set up (and update) a memory key for reviving computers that are so infected that they won’t start. It’s available right now as a free beta
for you to try out.
