You will need to turn off system restore, then run a full scan ,and restart the computer, if the virus is still there then because system restore was probably infected too , you will have to reformat the hard drive( save your important stuff first to a disk)after you format the hard drive turn the computer off and you will have to open it up and set the clr BIOS pins on the board and remove the memory battery on the board , then hit the start button to clr BIOS, then put the pin connector and battery back and reinstall your operating sytem( with your operating sytem disk

    I don't want to confuse you about the clr bios pins / pin 1 and 2 clear bios and 2 and 2 are normal position or the other way around , which ever two that aren't connected now will clear bios

    but just clearing bios won't get rid of the virus!

Apparantley i have a trojan worm in my lap top, i have norton and caled them they say i have a problem and my laptop is out of warranty and i have to purchase another one is this true


NO, you do NOT have to purchase a new laptop.

What the people at Norton probably meant was that your Norton anti virus software has expired and you need to purchase a new anti virus subscription from Norton if you want them to help you.

There are however other anti virus software manufacturers out there that are free and/or will allow you a 30 day trial period.

To help you clean out the worm in your system:

  • Find out the name of the worm you have on your system (your norton program will tell you this).
  • Go to this page: http://free.avg.com/us-en/virus-removal
  • Click on the link that has the same name as the worm on your system (don't worry about the I-worm or W32 part of the name, e.g. if your worm name contains navidad you want to click the I-worm/navidad link or if your worm name contains bugbear you want to click the I-worm/Bugbear.C link etc.)
  • Follow the instructions on the page you get to in order to get rid of your problem.
Hope this helps ;)

Anti-Virus paid for Norton says my Product Key is invalid


If it's expired it means you have to get a new one, most anti virus software are sold for a limited amount of time. Either way Norton is no good, I run Avast free edition and I never had any problems, you should get it too, and if you feel like having even better protection you can buy avast for life for only 65 CAD, which I bet is less than Norton.

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.

Norton product key


Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

You will need to visit Norton's website to obtain a legal key. You may as well update to the newest version if you purchase. The license run yearly on all anti-virus products.

I would like to suggest a totally free and really good anti-virus that would help you out. It is called IOBIT and can be found here. If you decide to go with any other (including my suggestion) anti-virus, be sure and removed the old Norton 2008 from your computer first before installing the other. Two anti-viruses can cause havoc on one machine.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

I had Norton Internet Security 2009 installed in my computer in August, 2009, and I am getting pop ups that my subscription is running out in 4 days.


Did you purchase the Norton Internet Security? If yes, then you need to verify with Symantec (Developer of Norton) if their program is a one-time purchase only or needs to get renewed every month or two.

Or there could be a possibility that you just need a new product code. Ask them if they could provide you one for free. Check the link below and you would be redirected to the Norton Web site:

We have recently upgraded our Norton 360 - it


I wouldn't recommend installing McAfee as this can also slow down machines. Norton is notorious for this. Download AVG free Anti-Virus or Avast Anti-Virus & a firewall such as Zonealarm. Anti-spyware software is also a good idea. Spybot Search & Destroy & Adaware are good. If the computer is in a corporate environment you must purchase the software as the free licence only covers home use. Uninstall Norton when you have downloaded the programs & before you attempt to install the new programs.

Installing norton anti-virus without internet connection


Yes it is possible.
To install full version you need either to purchase a disk or to purchase the download from Symantech.

If you have purchased the download or if you want to install the trial version download, just copy the install file onto an usb memory stick.

Plug the memory stick with norton install file onto your computer with no internet and run the installer from usb stick.

This will install norton with no need for the Internet.

If you buy nortom full version you may need to validate installation by phone, but that is not complicate.

You can download Norton from one of the websites below:

Norton AntiVirus for Windows 2000/XP/Vista
