After three and a half years, Symantec has once again released its antivirus software in the market. This time around, the software is available for both Windows Vista and Windows XP. Unlike before when the application only supported windows vista, this version also supports both this operating system and the older version. Some improvements were made to the application to accommodate for the new operating systems; one of which is the fact that the application now supports encryption.
Users can now choose to either install the updated version or keep the old version of the program installed. Both programs are able to operate in the same manner. When using the update feature, all you have to do is click on the "Check For updates" option found at the bottom of the window. A window will pop up and the installation will be started. A separate patchguard will be installed on your system and will enable the protection of your operating system against known vulnerabilities in order to make sure that your system is secure.
