First you need to tell us which web browser used. And then check whether if Java is already in the Add/Remove list.

Since you have AVG Internet Security 8.0 , there is no need to install Norton now.

Also check whether you have Flash plugin and active X installed on your PC.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

DOES NORTON MAKE A COMPUTER SLOW MY COMPUTRER IS REALLY SLOW AND SOMEONE TOLD ME THAT IS ONE OF THE REASONS AND TO USE A DIFFERENT SECURITY AND SOME ONE ELSE SAID TO CHANGE MY BROSER DON'T KNOW HOW TO DO...


You are caught between a rock and a hard place.

Norton, and ALL security software use a fair amount of resources. They are there to protect you.

You cannot expect a good and constant monitoring program to be light, unless you use a low quality security program that is near useless.

I wish these programs were also smaller, but with today's severe threats, we need severe protection.

Please put up with Norton or you may download free security programs which are excellent from this link: -

I purchased the Norton 360 Version 2.0 yesterday, and am trying to load it onto my machine. After checking for an updated version, I get an error message saying that the updated version will not load onto...


If you are having problems installing security software, and have 1500 documented problems, you may have a severe MALWARE infection. MALWARE (Virus, Spyware, adware etc.) often attack, disable or prevent the installation of security software.

Depending on the severity and how deeply imbedded the walware infection is determines the final resolve. UNfortunately, the final answer often is a complete reformat and reinstall of the operating system.

Things you can try:

If you can, download and run SPYBOT Search and Destroy from www.download.com

Other applications you may try to attack the problem are:

AVG antivirus from free.avg.com
ccleaner and Smitfraud fix from http://www.gur.in/download/

Often, it is just too much work to get rid of a massive infection and mort effective to format and start with a clean drive and install the security software before re-connecting to the internet.

I think my norton is downloaded wrong. I have a virus and cannot run norton


Hi mollducks, first things first. If you are using any version of XP turn on windows firewall. Click the start button & open control panel. Open windows firewall & click it to on if it is not on.
Try downloading AVG antivirus software for free at this link:
http://free.avg.com/ww.download?prd=afe Than run it. Full system scan.
After you run AVG on you're system use Norton’s remove utility to uninstall any left over files from Norton.
AVG should have caught any virus.
http://service1.symantec.com/Support/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039
If you bought Norton antivirus software for download, go to this Norton site & click support:
http://www.symantec.com/norton/support/index.jsp
If it was the free download, try again to download it.
Norton should do a quick scan during installation.
You might want to keep AVG. Norton should still install with AVG already installed. You can remove AVG at any time.
Lastly, once you feel there are no virus's in you're system shut down the PC. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Open the case & gently remove you're memory DIMM's. Wait 1 minute & re-install them. Make sure they are correctly connected. Double check all data & power cables are securly connected & close the PC & plug the power cord back in. (By doing this you remove any virus that may be hiding with in you're memory).

Good luck mollducks!
Feel free to ask if there is still an issue with norton after running the above sugestions.

When i turn off my computer it says END PROGRAM ccSvc.Hst When I press end program it takes forever for my computer to turn off. Also other option says press cancel and return to windows when I do this...


That file is part of Norton/Symantec security suite. I've seen that error on many systems with Norton Products.

You may be able to avoid the error by closing Norton in the system tray prior to shutdown of the system.

When you select shutdown from the menu, windows forces all running programs to shutdown, including the antivirus. For whatever reason, sometimes Norton doesn't like the shutdown request.

If you are not especially attached to the Norton product, you might try uninstalling it and trying AVG or Avast antivirus.

http://free.grisoft.com is the link to download AVG 8.0

Please completley remove the norton security from my computer...trying to run something comcst says you need to do something to rmove it...please do asap ...thank you


Go into Control Panel, then Add/Remove Programs. Wait for the list of all programs to load up.

Go down through the list and look for Norton Internet Security. Remove it. It will take a very long time, sometimes 1/2 hour or more depending on speed of computer. Reboot the computer after it has been removed, especially if/when it asks you to reboot after the process.

After rebooting, go back into Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs. Look for Symantec or Norton's Live Update, remove that as well. Also remove any other Symantec/Norton Anti-Virus or Internet Security programs as well. Then reboot the computer again.

Your computer should be much, much faster now. So now you need a new Anti-Virus program...

I've found in my experience that Norton and McAfee do more damage to some computers than good, besides the fact that they are severely over-priced. I would NEVER install either Norton (Symantec) or McAfee on anyone's computer. Matter of fact, I just had to remove Norton 2008 from a lady's computer today, an old Dell 2400 because her system was too old and slow to run new Norton.

My suggestions for much better anti-virus would be...

- Kaspersky Anti-Virus (search for it on Google, etc)

- Trend Micro PC-Cillin Anti-Virus (search for it on Google, etc)

- AVG Free Anti-Virus at http://free.grisoft.com, they also have more elaborate versions with more protection for a cost.

I personally use AVG on my computers, and my family does as well. It's very effective and gets out viruses that even Norton cannot remove.
