Computer becomes unresponsive

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?

    First, I re-stalled Vista.Then, I updated my anti-virus (Trend) and scaned my computer. After that, I disabled all startup programs. I have been installing things one at a time. Everything was fine until I re-installed Spysweeper. Then, the same lock up problems recurred.

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

I renewed my subscription on 10 March, Order No. NP12650135, but continue to get reminders to renew on your reminder pop-ups. Please input my renewal to reflect that subuscription has been renewed.


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.

I hope this helps.

My Type Artist won't run on 64bit Vista


most will have to be run in compatibility mode. movies on cd & dvd probably won't burn to cd (or run at all). they're too old for the manufacturer to post patches for vista support.
http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/using-windows-vista-compatibility-mode/

if the software is already installed on a pc, run the upgrade advisor to get more info on compatibility.

Spysweeper is incompatibile with this verison ofwindows vista


Webroot may provide you with a free upgrade if you recently purchased your software.

All customers who purchased software from Webroot Software are eligible for free replacement and software updates within one year of their original date of purchase (or the purchase of a registration renewal).

Fill out the form at this link (http://www.webroot.com/updates/redownload/request) and after webroot verifies your info they should e-mail you a download link and keycode if you purchased within the last year.

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.

You can download it from www.malwarebytes.org.
