Nice interface: Norton Security 2015 features a clear interface with buttons across the bottom of the screen that let you navigate quickly through the different sections.

There is also a Browser Protection feature available for Safari and Firefox that will scan as you browse to ensure no hidden threats find their way onto your machine.
Scan status: When a scan is in progress, the readout will show you that it’s working, how many files have been scanned so far, and how many issues have been encountered. But there is no readout to tell you how many files still need to be scanned or how long the scan is expected to take.
