Checking for Malware with a free download

Just installed Norton and no threats detected. I am considering checking with free downloads. Is there an easy way to uninstall Norton for a day and then reinstall?

Re: Checking for Malware with a free download

Hi, Ron. Not sure why you'd want to do that, but you can use the Norton Remove and Reinstall Tool.


If used, please read the Before you begin note and run Live Update manually until no more are found and then RESTART.

If you mean you wanted to check with free scanners, then MalwareBytes and Zemana free editions can be used purely as backup scanners. No need to disable Norton.

You should only have one real time anti virus program.
