Norton Anti-Virus 2001 Proper Settings

Revised on

Instructions

You may think that loading Norton Anti-Virus saves your butt from viruses and worms, but think again kids. Symantec by default when loaded leaves you wide open to attacks. Follow the settings below to set up your NAV to save your bacon.

{ The picture quality isn't that great. The lower quality means faster download times for you and more space saved for me }

Step 1: Double-Click on the Norton Anti Virus icon on the lower right of your screen.

 

Step 2: You'll get this screen... Click on Options...

 

Step 3: Click on Auto-Protect, and then click on All Files below. This scans ALL files instead of the default Program Files for more protection...

 

Step 4: Click on Manual Scans and then All Files... then click OK...

 

Step 5: Click on Scheduling... Then Click on Add Event...

 

Step 6: Click Next...

 

Step 7: Click on Schedule LiveUpdate to update your Virus Protection... Then click Next...

 

Step 8: Type in DEF Update for the name for this Event... Then click Next...

 

Step 9: Click Daily... then click Next...

 

Step 10: Enter in a time you would be comfortable with. This would generally a time when your computer will be on. Then click Next...

 

Step 11: Click Finish...

 

Step 12: Check to make sure the Event is there and the time is right.

 

All Done. You're very protected now. More so than with Symantecs default protections.
