To scan and remove viruses from your device, download one of the best virus-removing software suites like Norton AntiVirus Plus. Then, use the security tool to run a full scan to find and safely remove any malicious software lurking on your computer, phone, or tablet.

You should scan for viruses regularly — we recommend once a week — even if you’re using one of the best online security scanners to help shield your device from viruses, spyware, and other malware. With Norton AntiVirus Plus, you can schedule regular automatic virus scans to help your device stay virus-free without any hassle.

There are several tell-tale signs that may indicate you need to scan your computer for viruses. Even if a virus or malware remains hidden on your device, it’s likely to cause slowdowns or glitchy performance, increased data usage, overheating, or decreased battery life. You may also notice strange pop-ups, suspicious background processes, or unexpected alterations to your programs and browser settings.

A firewall is an advanced online threat protection tool that blocks suspicious network traffic to help prevent viruses, malware, and other malicious intrusions from gaining access to your device. By monitoring your internet traffic, a firewall acts as a gatekeeper, blocking threats before they can infect your computer or compromise your personal information. But firewalls can’t detect and remove viruses that are already embedded in your system — that's why you also need a virus scanner and removal tool.

Along with advanced software to remove viruses, Norton AntiVirus Plus combines real-time threat protection against malware and hackers, as well as a Smart Firewall feature and secure password manager. Plus, you’ll get 2GB of cloud storage2 and our Virus Protection Promise.1
