Uninstall Norton's, and if you have the installation disk Reinstall it. Personally Norton's is a pain in the A.., there are alot of other quirks with Nortons that you will find out about. Try changing your Anti-Virus and watch your problems disappear. Good Luck.

I have norton 2008,and it used to work well.But now i try to live update it but everytime it says failed to find update and today its worst i cant even open my norton.Whats going on and what can i do


You may have let your updates get turned off and viruses have got in on you.
Norton hasn't been doing that great these days. You have to stay on top of your settings all the time to make sure there set to the highest level and your updates need to be checked regularly also.
You might try booting up in safemode and trying to reinstall from hard drive or repair it and see if this helps. If it lets you repair it go ahead and run a virus scan while in safemode. Although the last Norton I tried to run in safemode wouldn't work. You might try to repair it before you try safemode.
Go to the control panel and add & remove programs and click uninstall norton. It should give you the option to repair it. If it does run repair and see if it helps. If it does run updates immediately and then run a full system scan. Go into the settings and make sure you are set to the highest level of protection in Norton options and settings. I always set mine to repair and then delete if repair failed.
good luck.

Where or how to get the update programme for Norton 360 which is advised while my subscription is current.


If your system has been set up right, you should be getting update regularly automatically but if not.. you may want to speak with a rep from Norton directly and they should be able to clarify thiings for you.. Here is a link to their service site http://www.tech24.com/html03_tech24_866-434-1660/

Good luck

I have bought and downloaded Norton 360 but the program can not contact live update the time period of trying is 12:30 to 1435 03/April /2008 ( incase your sever is down?)


since youve downloaded the product, i advise you to update your norton at least once a week.

whenever you encounter that the program cannot be updated, try to wait for 2 hours or so,

the server is never down, updates are always up! and new definitions are being made as we speak.

you can also go to symantec.com for manual updates. go to the search bar on the top right and search for intelligent updater.

thanks for using fixya

Norton failed to detect worm.win32.netsky. My computer is infected with the virus and I need help. Patti


Hello Patti,

First, you need to update the Norton with the latest virus definitions and perform a scan again. It may detect the virus and remove it.

If it does not, we need to format the hard drive of the computer and reinstall the operating system as it is the most effective way to get rid of the virus.

Wish you good luck
