(Packages have clearly disclosed that you are buying one year of service.) The updates included new “virus signatures” that would protect your computer from the latest malware threats.
These typically might be pushed to your computer at least once day.
After your year was up, you would no longer get updates, but the software would still function fully, giving you virus protection, etc., at least for the known threats and the known patterns up until your new updates stopped.

A few years ago, Mouse Print* pointed out the tactic that the maker of Quicken (Intuit) uses to get customers to buy an upgraded version of their software: Every three years, they deliberately disable online functionality so you can no longer make electronic payments or download account statements. Now comes Symantec, the maker of Norton Anti-Virus, Norton Internet Security, and similar protection products, with an even nastier ploy.
I’ve used AVG Free for a number of years without problems, and for the past year, Bitdefender Free, also with good results.

To import the file into the Avira program, go to the Update menu -Bitdefender Weekly Updates Bitdefender updates its offline definition files once a week on a Friday so they could be a nearly week out of date depending what day you download them.
Quick Summary: realizing this is a long article, for those not interested in the details, after years of using Norton (Symantec) products, I’ve moved away from Norton 360 and over to two other Internet Security products for my home and work computers: Bitdefender Internet Security and Kaspersky Internet Security.
Finally, not to ignore FREE Anti-virus programs, I also have AVG FREE Anti Virus and Bitdefender Anti Virus Free Edition on two other computers.
Here is how Norton Internet Security (or Anti-Virus) used to work.
