Norton Security Inspector

Security Inspector is a tool that you can use to check
your computer’s security settings and configure them according to your
personal preferences. Security Inspector checks the following:

  • Whether your browser settings are set to a secure level
  • Whether
    Norton Internet Security is configured to protect installed IM clients
    (for example whether IM scanning is on, if you’ve got a relevant IM
    client installed)
  • Whether any attempts have been made to modify your hosts file (for example redirecting your local host entry)
  • Whether
    your computer has insecure shared folder settings (for example if there
    are global shares – C$ D$ etc, enabled, system folders are shared,
    hidden shares, etc.) – SI can close undesirable shares
  • Displays a list of user accounts that have more rights (admin privileges) than they need
  • Checks
    for windows services that should be configured to start manually rather
    than automatically, and services that should be configured not to
    start. The “fix” operation will only allow the user to change each
    service to start (or not start) according to our recommendation.
  • Whether your machine has Windows user accounts with weak passwords.

Security Inspector requires a working copy of Norton Internet
Security 2009 installed on your computer
. If you do not have a copy of
Norton Internet Security 2009, you may purchase a copy here.
