Norton antivirus program is widely accepted as the best software application and has been ranked first among all the latest or previous antivirus programs. It is combined with a high level of malware detection and real-time protection and is feature rich among the available antivirus programs. But many users might now know how to install Norton antivirus on a PC or any device they want to use it on. Hence, this article will cover the steps involved in installing Norton antivirus.

We are using Norton 360 Deluxe 360 for a demonstration, and this is the only suite you will be using for installing Norton on multiple devices, such as computers, phones, and tablets. Norton 360 Deluxe can support up to five devices.

Here are the steps you must follow to set up Norton Antivirus Protection.

Step 1: Purchase And Download

This step is self-explanatory. You must purchase the product from the Norton product page and choose what you want. For instance, Norton 360 Deluxe. And then:

  • First, click on “Subscribe now” and enter all the necessary details.
  • Once you have paid, click the “Get Started” button on the order confirmation screen to download the Norton installer. Then, follow the on-screen instructions to click the EXE file at the bottom of the Window once it has been downloaded.
  • Now, the downloader will download the remaining files necessary for the application to be installed.
  • At last, the program will prompt request permission for Norton to make changes in your computer, then click “Yes.”

Step 2: Install Norton Antivirus

Click the “Install” button to start installing Norton antivirus. It will take a moment to get installed. You can see the process as a spinning circle.

Step 3: Activate Your Norton Antivirus Software

After the installation, Norton will activate and communicate with the company’s servers. Then, you will receive a pop-up on your screen saying that one of five licenses have been used and the device you have used to install the app is fully protected.

Step 4: Enable Safe Browsing

If you close the Norton main menu and return to your browser, the screen will display a new tab offering Norton extensions for the browser. Then, to turn on the Safe Web, Safe Search, and Norton’s Password Manager, select “Enable All Norton Extensions.”

If you don’t want all of them and only need a particular extension, suppose “Safe Web” and then click on the blue “Install” option to select the extension you want on your PC. Once you click on Install, it will take you to the Chrome Web Store, where you can apply “Add to chrome” for the selected extension. And then, you will see a permission page for adding the Norton extensions. Then you have to click on the “Add Extension” to confirm.

Step 5: Patch Up

Once you choose your extensions, suppose you choose Safe Web; go back to Norton’s main menu if you want to update an application now. To update the application, go to Device Security at the top of the menu, and click on “LiveUpdate” underneath it.

The Norton LiveUpdate looks for the latest updates and downloads them. You can confirm the downloaded patch by selecting “Apply Now.” Then, wait a while for Norton to restart and install the patch.

Step 6: PC Scanning

After the installation, Norton initiates a quick scan to detect your PC for any malware or suspicious content. But if it doesn’t, you can start scanning by yourself for an initial checkup. Then, again go to Device Security at the top of the menu and click on “Quick Scan.”

Otherwise, you can also run an initial full scan on your system. To do this, click on the “Open” box next to the Device Security and then click on the arrow pointing downwards on the right, which has the “Scans” option you must click.

Select “Full System Scan” from the next dialogue box and click on “Go.” Now, a full scan will run that checks all your files.

Step 7: Finally, Sign In

If you have purchased a valuable product, like Norton 360 Deluxe, you will be requested to sign in before all features come into your hand. Hence, you need to click “Sign in” at the bottom of the main menu and enter your account password when asked. Once you sign in successfully, all the features will be seen in the main menu from where you can manage them.

It was how you would install Norton Antivirus on your system. You can add the extra features by following the mentioned steps. Then, configure them by following the instructions on the screen while enabling them.
