Norton Confidential is designed to prevent malware being loaded onto users’ systems when they click on certain web links and surf websites.

Such malware can include key-logging software which can relay the information typed in by a user to remote servers controlled by criminals. They can use this information to conduct identity theft and fraud.

The Symantec software can detect key-logging programs and can prevent inputted usernames and passwords from being sent to remote servers.

A one-year subscription for Norton Confidential has a list price of £27.

Many of the features in Norton Confidential are being promised by Microsoft in its forthcoming Windows Vista operating system, which has a full commercial launch next January.
