Interface of Norton AntiVirus differs significantly from other antivirus solutions that are trying to have subdued and flat interface. Here however, visuals are very eye-catching and the layout of the app itself requires little different approach in controlling its functions. The latest version of the app from 2014 has a unique approach for its main dashboard, showcasing 4 big control squares on the main window – first for status overview of your system, second for activating scans, third for status of your live update, and fourth for access to advanced options. In top of the app are traditional shortcuts for app configuration, account management and “Performance” section that can streamline operation of your PC and make it faster.
