Anti-virus has been updated but icon still shows it needs attention.
Norton antivirus protection has been updated, we recieved an invoice and recognition of the transaction but icon at the botton of our screen still has yellow exclamation point that it needs attention. There also is a little red exclamation point. It would be nice to get rid of these signals to do something when we have been told it has been done. Shirley M. Pierce

Your Norton that you bought in 2005 has expired.
Normally, the anti virus protection, you buy, will have an expiration of 1 year or 2 years. It will only have more, if you have purchased the license for more. If not,that is why your Norton is out ot date. Expired 2006!!! I DO NOT RECOMMEND NORTON Some useful information below. Hope it helps.
SPEAKING WITH MY EXPERIENCE TRY SOMETHING ELSE.
FREE SPYWARE Download Spybot Search & Destroy. Restart computer, then run Spybot to see what spyware comes up, AND DELET IT.
FYI---Virus Protection-- 2 programs of virus protection will conflict with each other and will actually cancel out the protection. SO just download one.
Running Spybot Search & Destroy with EITHER Avast or Avg (great Free virus protection programs ) will keep a computer in good working condition. FREE
There are alot of $ anti-virus and Internet security programs out there, ie: Norton, McAfee, Panda, Bitdefender. If you would like to pay $ then get ***Kaspersky***-- 2010 , I feel that is the best for your money.
REMEMBER TO KEEP UP THE DAILY MAINTENANCE ON ALL OF YOUR COMPUTERS.!
Good Luck. If you find this information helpful , please rate me. Thanks :0)
Close the antivirus program and reopen it. When it isclosed, the icon yellow for norton will not appear on bottom right hand side along with volume icon etc. You may also restart the computer to see id that helps. Right click the Norton icon and see id it says ENABLE AUTOPROTECT or DISABLE AUTOPROTECT. Try enabling.Try the same update after a while. If that does not work, try reinstalling Norton. I get 100s of viruses from 100s of friends and all sorts of things happen to me anti virus etc
but I am told that pretty normal
go to your online norton account and check the renewal date.
if the norton tray icon is green, it's active. if red, or black, it may not be. also, when the norton runs out, the windows warning will come up saying the system may not be protected due to no anti-virus.
note: there are many free a/v and anti-spyware programs available so you need not pay for anything. www.downloads.com
If you have purchased a copy of norton, your license key will still work regardless of whether you remove it or not as long as you have it registered on symantec.com.
Reinstall and update it and see if that fixes the problem. Sometimes Norton doesn't detect everything believe it or not. I had a similar problem when I was using Norton a few years ago so I changed to McAfee and I didn't have a problem anymore. The malware went away as well.
When you open the norton antivirs screen,there are two tabs on the top.Click on the one that says "Norton Antivirus" and not the one that says "Norton antivirus protection centre"
Then click on the "Support" option and select "Subscription" and walla...enter your code
Open your norton 360 and then updates by clicking upates menu. it will directly updates your norton to the symantec websites or you cam manually updates downloading the update here : dhttp://www.symantec.com/avcenter/download/pages/US-N95.html After updating restart your system to automatically fixed some errors. If the system still same error just click the balloon on the taskbar and select "i have my antivirus (not probably same word)" something like that. if Finally same error encountered uninstall the norton 360 and again reinstall after rebooting and updates. don't worry about the alert, you know already that you are protected.
Norton 360 has the entire norton protection suite built into it. On top of the firewall, phishing protection, and e-mail protection it also has norton antivirus built right into it.
So yes, you have to uninstall antivirus to install 360, but 360 just installs antivirus again.
If you ever decide to go back to using just antivirus you can simply redownload it off their web site.
