Question about Symantec Norton AntiVirus For Macintosh 10.0 for Mac

3 Answers

I have had 3 failures in downloading the renewal on Mac OS10,4 Tiger

I have purchased a renewal of Norton AntiVirus 10.0 for Macintosh.  In attempting to download by dialup(Broadband is not available in this area) the transmission has stopped twice at 5.8 MB and once at 27,8.   This has now become too costly and too much of a timewaste.   If no quick solution is available please arrange for a refund.

The reality of it is that you do not need an anti-virus program for a Mac. For now, there are no viruses ut there that attack a Mac. Norton and others simply have it as an advertising ploy to get people's money when they say you need Norton for the Mac.
The only benefit of an anti-virus program, right now, for a Mac is that it will scan your email going out to friends to make sure that any emails that were infected by a Windows platform will not be passed on to the friends of yours who use Windows.
Also, any geek will tell you - Norton, in and of itself - is a waste of time and money. On a Windows machine, AVP, Zone Alarm, Spybot Search and Destroy, Hijack This, are all free alternatives that can be used to get rid of the many things Norton cannot get rid of.
In fact, a lot of my geek friends who fix computers (and myself) classify Norton as its own version of malware. It is very hard to clean off of a system and, if you do not continue paying them for updates, it places an annoying reminder on your screen.
Get your money back - it is being wasted on an inferior product that the mainstream falls for.

One of the steps in renewing your Norton or Symantec subscription is to create an account with them. Click here to log into your Norton account and log in. Your account will have the version you purchased or renewed and you should be able to get it to download again and just follow the screen prompts.

I have a Norton account with automatic renewal. It is on automatic renewal with a renewal date of April 15. My PC was recently serviced and the repair form replaced Norton with McAfee. I was happy...


go to http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CBsQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mynortonaccount.com%2F&ei=8aE9TebgKIHGlQfix_TTDA&usg=AFQjCNEF1whBt6NtlZlxw-OaCVM7XaVmAQ

use the account information you used to create the account. Once in there you can uncheck the product in the auto renewal feature.

I woudl also suggest telling the repair person they should be more informed. McAfee is not as good as norton in anyway. You also do not need to buy a new PC to get norton you can get it from a store as well.

I would also suggestyou lookign in to Avast! or AVG virus scan. They work better and use less computer resources (memory, cpu time, etc) than both norton and mcafee.

Renewal free norton Antirus 2010.


If you only need the anti-virus component of Norton 360 (it also includes an email filter and some other components) then I would recommend a newly-available free antivirus program, see the instructions for installation here:
http://www.fixya.com/support/r5317428-actually_free_antivirus_software_windows

However, if you do need the other components of Norton 360 I would choose another paid software. You can either go online to Norton's website and download the newest version of Norton 360 here:
http://antivirus.norton.com/content/en/us/home_homeoffice/html/paid/seo02252010/SEO_Static_Option_3_Col_Radio_02252010.html?om_sem_cid=hho_sem_sy:us:ggl:en:e|kw0000004480|5995564156&om_sem_site={adcopy}
When the program tells you that it has expired five days ago there is likely a link in this window for a website at which you can renew your subscription. This is likely a cheaper alternative to buying an entire new version of Norton 360 and will do the same thing, so try following this link and paying to increase your subscription if you want the suite of security software.

Your computer will now be secured from threats again!

Anti virus updates


The program you're using is out of date and if you haven't renewed the Norton 2004 since then, you will have to purchase a new version or updates to work.
