Compare and contrast the features of Trend Micro and Norton antivirus software
Norton Antivirus (Norton AntiVirus) is a freeware but constantly updated antivirus program by Symantec, and Norton Internet Security (formerly Norton AntiVirus 2006) from Symantec. It is an enhanced security solution that provides the latest in Antivirus technology for your PC’s operating system and can even protect your network. The program allows users to control all aspects of the security software to enhance protection and performance.
Trend Micro Internet Security (Trend Micro, and formerly Norton AntiVirus) is a freeware, Windows-based personal computer security and anti-malware program. The “Internet Security” part of the name actually refers to the fact that Trend Micro Firewall can be set up to restrict or allow Internet access through your computer depending on if you want to connect to the Internet or not. It is an enhanced version of Trend Micro 3.0 and later.
Trend Micro Internet Security detects viruses using the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network and the latest heuristic scanning which includes behavior blocking, file blocking and malicious URL blocking. Trend Micro Internet Security also protects your privacy by deleting personal data like your browser cache. When the computer is idle, it closes all unnecessary applications to save memory for protection against attacks.
Explain which one is better for home users and why
Norton Antivirus is better for home users because it is a protection suite, which includes protection against viruses, spyware and potentially intrusion-based attacks. It scans your entire system to ensure that Windows Security features and applications are correctly configured. And it protects against viruses, spyware, and potentially intrusion-based attacks. It comes with a firewall to block intruders from getting access to your system’s ports and blocks hackers from sending fake information that could cause your system to crash.

Offer a comparison of the price points for each product
Trend Micro is a little more expensive than Norton Antivirus, which is free. Trend Micro has a full module which costs $52, but this includes the basic service that protects you from different types of viruses and it automatically updates itself. It also has a firewall feature which prevents people from hacking into your computer. The service is available online 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The Symantec Norton AntiVirus is free to download and use. Most of the features are the same as Trend Micro, but the service is not available online 24 hours a day and updates itself automatically.
Based on price point, Norton Anti-virus offers you a slightly better deal than Trend Micro. Other features are very similar, and so this makes it an easy choice between the two products. Though Trend Micro is available online 24 hours a day other than that, there isn’t much difference between them.
Overall, I think that Trend Micro is better because it is only a little higher priced. The Norton Anti-virus is free and good, but there are a few other good free antivirus programs and Trend Micro has more features.
Discuss whether or not either one is worth the investment
The online service is worth the investment. The other benefits of this antivirus product outweigh the price. Because it continuously scans your entire system, you will be protected against viruses, spyware and intrusion-based attacks. It sends you an email whenever someone is using your computer to access dangerous web pages, and it blocks hackers from sending fake information that could cause your system to crash. Norton also protects against rootkits and other potentially dangerous security threats caused by rogue programs. It notifies you about bugs in the software you have installed and gives you the option to uninstall it immediately. If a hacker releases a harmful file, Norton has your back.
In addition to protecting your computer from hackers and viruses, Norton also provides firewalls and alerts used to prevent phishing attempts on your computer. It also blocks pop ups that can waste your time while surfing the web and irritating you while watching videos online. You can choose how many alerts you want to receive, ranging from one to four at a time. Its firewall is easy to manage, and the more networks you add, the more secure your computer becomes. Because this antivirus doesn’t get in your way, it can be worth its price.
