My local area network has two home computers with Linksys cards in each. Both desktops have Windows 7 and the Internet Explorer and the other browsers are of the latest versions.
This works well for me.
Norton Antivirus is installed on one of the machine.
Are both machines protected through the network, or should I install the same antivirus program separately on each machine?
Installing only one Norton Anti-Virus for two machines
HI Ma'am Elaine,

Norton Internet Security Antivirus, Antispyware,Phishing protection, Online identity protection, AntispamNetwork mapping and monitoring, Parental controls management and Smart firewall Social network protection.
Norton 360 total protection has Antivirus, Antispyware, Phishing protection, Online identity protection,Antispam, Network mapping and monitoring, Parental controls management, Smart firewall, Social network protection, Automatic backup, PC tuneup,2 GB of secured online storage.
So it means only 1 desktop is being protected.
Before you install the Norton, you have to uninstall the previous antivirus. After that install Norton.It is recommended to Install the Norton on each pc and update it after the installation is finish to have the fully protection.
