With the given minimal amount of information, the following could resolve the existing lack of hardrive space.
FOR PC (Not for Mac)
a. Open Windows Explorer
b. Right mouse click on the drive D
c. on the popup menu, click on "Properties"
d. a new window will popup, on the tabs is called "General"
e. on the "General" tab click on the "Disk Cleanup" Button
f. Follow directions and delete the files that Windows tells you to delete (Disclaimer: Since I can not see the files, I can not say if you will need tem or not; HOWEVER, for the last nine years, I have never seen this procedure delete any files necessary for the computers operation.

2. Alternatively, you can install another hardrive to have more hardrive space and so you would not have to deal with the 8 cds issue or lack of space.

How to install nortons

If you are trying to install Norton from a CD/DVD, insert the CD/DVD into your CD/DVD drive.

If the autoplay option shows up automatically, click on "run ****.exe from the CD/DVD" and it will start installing Norton. Now, during the installation, you must follow the on-screen instructions.

If the autoplay doesn't show up, open your computer, right click over the CD/DVD drive and click on "Open Autoplay". Select "run ****.exe from the CD/DVD" and Installation will now start.

If you want to install Norton from a downloaded copy, double-click over the downloaded package (****.exe) and follow the on-screen instructions.

Hope this helps, Mrityunjay.

I just bought the Norton Antivirus 2011 and now my DVD/CD drive is not operating properly. Is there anyway to download it from the website. I have the product key/receipt. Any assistanceyou can give...

There are lower and upper filters that can be deleted in the registry. It needs to be done by someone who knows how. This will fix 90% of cd drive problems. The only other thing is if the drive crapped out completely. There is a version downloadable. For computers without cd drives and norton has the USB versions out. Always check with staples easytech in temple TX or computer store for help.

I have norton antivirus 2010 CD but my CD drive is not working for download this software in my Window xp Computer.


First thing I would double check and make sure the disk is not actually a DVD because alot of installers are on those now. If it is an actual CD then I would try it in another computer. If it works then we know the disk is good and you will need a newer CD drive for your computer. The reason for this is the copy protection that is in the disk. There is what is called over burn so the disk has more than 700mb of data on the disk. The problem with this is the old drives will not read this. I actually ran into a newer computer had one of these drives in them. So you might see if a friend has an external drive that you can borrow if you do not want to replace the drive.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Antivirus System PRO virus.

Hello and thank you for using Fixya!

Purchase a flash drive (a cdrom will not work for this) and back-up your data on the thumb drive. I would recommend an 8 gig as to fit all your files.

Place the flash drive in the new computer and scan it immediately with the Norton.

By the way, there is one great software that will save the old computer and it only cost 30 dollars. I use it to kill this Rogue on all my customers computers and it takes me 10 minutes to get rid of it. Definetly worth the purchase!

Computer freezes, won't let me do a restore system either.

Restart your computer and hit F8 and go under Last Known Working Configuration and that should fix problem and if not go into safe-mode and if you have bought Norton delete Norton's and reinstall
