    If you have shoes does that mean you don't need a shirt? Of course not. In the same way that covering your feet doesn't mean you are fully dressed, protecting your computer against viruses doesn't protect you against adware, spyware, browser hijacking, spam, phishing or any of the many other sorts of attacks. You either need a separate program to defend against each type of attack or a security suite that contains all of the different components. Norton Security Suite provides much of what you would need but Norton anti-virus only provides protection against one of the dozen or more types of threat.
