There are a large number of antivirus/internet security software available in the market. Each
one claims himself to be the best one among all. Each antivirus has his  specific  capability to  combat the threats and each user has his different view in respect of different antivirus software. Some antivirus suits very well to me but it may not suit totally to my friend. Every body has his own view. In my view Norton Internet security is most suitable. The Norton antivirus is not suitable because if you use internet connection you need Internet security and if you do not use internet you can not install the latest virus definitions without which the antivirus will be ineffective on new virus.
There are three simple ways to get a Norton product –
1.    Purchase a new copy from market. You will receive in the form of CD with necessary user manuals, TOS manual and product Key.
2.  Go to the company web site and make an online payment and down load all things mentioned in para-1 above.

Updating
Your software CD or the download may be out dated and now you have to make it up to date by downloading the up to date  virus definitions. While each time you open the Norton Internet security it shows when it was updated last time and you have to act accordingly. Norton Antivirus/internet security updates automatically for ever. There are two ways to update it after first time installation- (1) Open Norton Internet security, click “Live update”. Live update will start. If you start another work during this process, no problem but this may slow down the process. (2) Install the software and start your routine work. After 1 or 2 hour while you check your Norton internet security again, you will find it duly updated.

This rectangular group of codes is called The Quick Response code commonly QR code. Before the invention of QR code the Bar code was in use but Bar code had it’s own limit of 20 Digits maximum and Toyota, a major car manufacturer of Japan was facing difficulties with  bar code. Then the responsibility to get rid of this problem was solved by their subsidiary company Denso, in 1994.
Where Bar code was limited to 20 digits, QR code was capable of responding more than 7000 number or about 4300 alphanumeric character thus almost 350 times of the barcode.
