    I tested Norton Internet Security 2012. I tested 2 ways i.e already downloaded malware in a folder & downloading malware through web using internet explorer.

    When I download & run or save malware through Internet Explorer, NIS analyzes the files & gives verdict i.e the small analyzing window in the right hand corner.

    But when I run the already locally saved malware in a folder, NIS doesn't analyzes them, this is by design or some prob here?

    I thought download protection sonar was for web & file insight was for both web & local files but it doesn't seems so.

    That means sonar & file insight are for web only & not local files i.e file insight too is for web only, right?

    Was your internet connection switched on when you executed them? For me SONAR detected a virus when I tried to run a file from a CD.

    OK I read Sonar is Norton's Behaviour Blocker so may be it didn't detected anything suspicious. And yes net was connected.

    I specially want to know about the File Insight. While downloading & saving or executing file through web, File Insight automatically analyzes the concerned file. But no automatic analyze for local files, why? Though you can manually analyze the local files i.e rightclick File Insight.

    The norton user guide shows download file insight (with the auto pop up) and file insight without it so i guess its designed that way?
