Symantec has done a great job creating this antivirus software and improving it every moment they could; and this scored the highest on PCMag’s lab tests and editors’ choice as well. Even, some other independent labs scored this product higher than the others; it’s highly effective cleaning viruses, wiping and malwares and everything else it is designed for. Only con? PCMag scored it too low.
