I shouldn’t expected this feature but its nice one and good move by Symantec.


Installation :-

The installation Norton 360 v6 is pretty smooth and clean, I hadn’t faced any lag in any application while installing it, I was using 2-3 heavy application by side of installation but every thing went smoothly even we are testing it in an old computer.

Interface :-

The interface is quite clean, everything is just in front of you, we had seen in many Anti-Virus programs that you have struggle a lot to find right option. Navigating between options is also pretty smooth and minimal.

By default when you buy Norton 360 v6 and install it you will get 2 GB of free online storage for storing or backing up your important files. While selecting a back up type you can easily select which files to include, like Pictures, Documents, Music, Financial files and so on.


It also do allows you to select which file type you wan to include in back like in Picture you can select BMP, GIF and skip JPG, PNG and so on. It’s a nice feature, we had liked it !


If you like to make backup on your hard disk, media drive or on network rather than on cloud then you can also do this with Norton 360. It can make automatic backup regularly, but if you want to make backup manually then it can also be done.

It also do notify you about those applications which are taking more CPU resource and you can tweak with its setting to make it use less power.


PC Tune Up :-

Norton 360 v6 can easily tune-up your pc and makes it run faster and smoothly, it can defragment your hard disks, delete Windows temporary files, delete internet temporary files, manage start ups and makes your computer startup fast, clean registry by deleting unnecessary entries.

Our Verdict :-

Norton 360 v6 is available for Rs 3085 for 1 Years of protection for upto 3 PCs. At this price tag it comes with lots of options and plus it gives you 2 GB of online storage space too.  However its tune-up tools are almost of no use as you can find much better apps for free or for less amount which can do same task or even can do more than Norton one.

If you wanna get 1 PC license the you can get it for Rs. 1649, its slightly higher than Norton Internet Security but it comes with many features which are not there in Norton IS.
