Question about Internet & Communication Software

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

My Norton Anti-Virus expired yesterday and i want it back


You will either have to purchase another subscription from Norton or use another anti-virus. I recommend using AVG, it is free for home users and ranks at the top with Symantec and McAfee.

On norton protection center i get fix protection up dates 0n fix on doing all required the problem is not solved the same applies tospyware definitions i end up with protection updates out of date


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

Update problem with symantec antivirus


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

I cannot tell if my norton security system is operational, because there is confusion about the subscritption renewal


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

My licensed Antivirus program does not show that it is protecting my system from virus, malware, spyware


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.

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.
