Spyware removal is a type of program that is created and spread to collect information about internet browsing actions of the computer. These data are then transferred to the creator of the spyware to use the statistics for online advertising. Spywares are spread through the shareware and freeware and peer to peer file transfers. Though spyware is also a type of malware, it is different from computer viruses in terms of nature and construction. Therefore regular anti virus software can not detect the spywares and you need spyware remover tools for detecting and removing the spywares from your PC.

A good start will be to go into norton protection centre an selectQUICK SCAN when this has finished select VIEW HISTORY you may find that the spyware/adware has rated itself as low risk and has been ignored .Select quickscan on the list of risks found and click MORE DETAILS in this page you will see OPTIONS -EXCLUSIONS on this page you will see on the left side LOW RISK POLICY click this and then change to REMOVE ALL LOW RISK CATAGORIES. Norton willnow deal with the spyware adware. While your in here you can manually remove anything picked up in the quickscan on the VIEW HISTORY page by highlighting it and clicking REMOVE button on the right of your screen

Seem to have developed a problem with my audio recording and playback using Roland's FA-66 (Editrol). I use Cakewalk SONAR, Sony Sound Forge and Vegas Video softwares, and all of them show the same sound...

try these 2 sites, i believe they have some good info you need and will probably solve your issue. ive heard some horror stories about norton. unistall and see what comes about. it seems as though too many connections are going to screw this item up and norton will do the same.

My disk loader will not run the 360 norton. please help. other cds work on it but the norton360 will not there a way to fix it.without paying a whole lot of money for it?

honestly Nortons 360 is not what you want to load on your computer anyways... I am an IT Tech and I get a lot of business because of this program. A good security/virus program is one called AVAST and it is free as long as you are a home user. Try it out. Another thing...sometimes a computer will not allow any anti-virus programs to be loaded when they have certain trojans or worms. Just a thought.

I have logitech 5000 camera on my sistem when i do the norton system clean i loose the camera setting then i have to reinstall the driver to get skype setings other way i can,t

Do yourself a favour, uninstall Norton, is far too labour intensive program, slows your system., & a lot of virus specifically target Norton because they say they are good. Here is an excellent free antivirus software that in my opinion far outclasses Norton. select free software tab & download Avast Home edition. When asked if you want to schedule a boot time scan, yes.
Hope this is of assistance to you.
Have a nice day.

I requested assistance on Feb 20, 2009. No answer yet

You might want to try uninstalling one of the programs. Either the Norton or the Spysweeper. Both products seem to be trying to do the same thing and conflicting with each other. Good Luck!

We are a Church and do not have a credit card to enable me to renew Anti Virus Protection online. Is it possible to be billed and pay by cheque?

Do not renew your subscription. I am guessing it is Norton(Symantec) or McAfee, unfortunately both of these once reputable anitivirus applications have become loaded with a lot of intrusive software that eats up system resources and slows your computer down.
Use a free antivirus application like AVG, Avast or NOD32. These free applications are just as good if not better to be honest, than either Norton or McAfee.
Here is a link to download the free version of AVG 8.0.
I am the securities moderator on another forum and AVG is by far the most popular antivirus package.

Probs with pc after using recovery disc

get in touch with symantec make sure you would be able to redownload it after you format your drive. Use file and setting wizard from start->programs->accessories->system tools to transfer your settings to removable media. Once you format and reinstall use wizard again to import your previous settings from removable media.
