I have Vista, 32 bit. For a year, it worked fine. Now, after I renewed my supscritption and updated the program, it locks my computer up and it becomes totally unresponsive. I have to manually shut it down to unlock it. Any ideas?

Re: Computer becomes unresponsive
Due to some virus/spyware attack some of the system files might have got corrupted which are needed for the successful operation ...
even though some people will say that the virus will not infect to vista .. but infact the common small viruses will not infect normally but the spyware/malwares will attack and some other virus which are not little they will attack to vista ..
so i suggest to install some good update antivirus and scan your system and fix all of them ...
after fixing if you still persist the same problem then you must reintall the vista this will solve your problem ..
if your computer is totally unresponsive then go to the "safe mode"(by press F8 key at the system startup) then scan your system and if needed reinstall it ...
thank you any queries you can contact me rate my solution

This is an issue that frequently comes up. Please make sure that you have your product key from your new subscription stored (the MyNorton account is a useful place to store the data since you can cut and paste the number into Norton IS).
First check if NIS 2009 has your correct subscription information. Start the program, click on Help and Support > Subscription Status. Click Finish when that window finishes its activity.
If it is still confused, my solution is to update to Norton Internet Security 2010 (no cost to you).
One way to do this is through the Norton Update Center: http://updatecenter.norton.com/?NUCLANG=en
The other is to use the Norton Removal Tool: ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/removal_tools/Norton_Removal_Tool.exe After the product removes all trace of any Norton product and rebooting your computer, if you have a good internet connection, it will lead you through downloading and installing the updated product. I recommend the Removal Tool since frequently the error you report is due to NIS not correctly updating the registry when the new subscription is updated.

Although in my humble opinion Spy sweeper is a bit of a resource hog and does not provide the best protection against malware/Spyware. I would recommend checking out malware bytes Anti-malware (they have both a free and a paid PRO version that has automatic protection). It is much more effective, cheaper, and your pc will run faster with this then spysweeper.
