Norton Internet Security

Norton Internet Security is an anti-virus utility that can protect against viruses, keeping your data safe and secure.

How do I check for viruses?

  1. Double-click the Norton Internet Security icon on the Windows desktop.
  2. Select Tasks & Scans.
  3. Select Run Scan to scan your system.

4. When the scan is complete, review the results of the scan.

NOTE: For optimal security, run a Full System Scan when scanning your computer for the first time.

You can schedule customized virus scans that run unattended on specific dates and times or at periodic intervals. If you are using the computer when the scheduled scan begins, it runs in the background so that you do not have to stop working.

For more information refer to the Norton Internet Security help files.

NTI Shadow allows users to schedule continuous backup jobs that copy the contents of one or more folders (the "backup source") to another location (the "backup destination"). The backup jobs are continuous because they are scheduled to regularly update the data in the backup folder either continuously or in user-defined intervals. You can schedule a job to run every certain number of minutes, on certain days at a specified time, or whenever any data in the backup source are modified.

Shadow can also be configured to archive file versions. If this option is enabled, then any file that is saved or overwritten will trigger Shadow to archive the previous version of the file. The file versions are stored in a Revisions folder in the backup destination. Users can configure how many versions of a file to maintain.

Shadow supports backups on local hard drives, USB/FireWire external hard drives, USB pen drives, NAS devices, and any drive with drive letter access.

Launch the utility is as easy as pressing one buttons. For more information refer to the NTI Shadow help files.
