Symantec: Norton speeds up Windows 8 OS


Would you believe if an anti-virus company claimed that their anti-virus will actually increase or boost up the speed of your computer?

Security provider Symantec believes that their Norton security software for Windows 8 actually speeds up Microsoft’s new operating system.

Symantec’s head of development Collin Davis boasted that the performance of Symantec’s new code is beneficial because when you use it with Microsoft’s Windows Defender, the result would be a faster experience.

Davis said, “Windows, as you know, include Defender. And that’s a big deal. that’s great, it’s important and it’s continued to raise the bar.”

“If you turn off Defender, your PC will be faster. We always have overhead, we still do. We add less overhead than Defender does. Beginning with our Fall release, you will be updated to the latest technology without reboots,” he added.

Symantec did an internal test with regards to the speed of their Norton product. And it proved that it indeed speeds up your PC.

The good thing about the new Norton program is that you don’t need to reboot your PC when you install updates.

Davis said, “You won’t need to reboot your PC. We’ve done a lot of new work on our update system without having to bounce the system.”

What do you think of this Norton program then?
