    I waited 2 hours to get someone on Norton's chat line. They had to reconfigure the firewall. I am sharing a computer and the owner installed Norton, otherwise I would have taken your advice. Thanks for the insight.

YES IMHO, GET RID OF NORTON! IT IS YOUR MAIN PROBLEM! I HAVE NEVER LIKED NORTON AND HAVE HAD MORE PROBLEMS WITH NORTON THAN ANY OTHER VIRUS SOFTWARE PRODUCTS COMBINED! I DO THIS ON AN EXPERT LEVEL AND HAVE TAUGHT COMPUTER I.T. AND THIS PRODUCT WILL CAUSE HAVOC WITH YOUR COMPUTER BY BLOCKING PROGRAMS YOU WANT TO USE AND PROGRAMS YOU WANT TO DOWNLOAD. HAVE YOU THOUGHT OF USING AVG? IT IS A STRONG PROGRAM AND FREE TO USE AND NOT A PAIN TO USE AND HAS EVERY BIT AS MANY FEATURES AS NORTON. THIS IS JUST MY PERSONNAL OPINION, BUT I THINK YOU WILL HAVE A MUCH EASIER LIFE WITHOUT NORTON. IF I CAN HELP FURTHER JUST REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217

    OH, I SEE YOUR PROBLEM AND YES THIS IS A TYPICAL PROBLEM WITH NORTON. IT DOESN'T WORK OUT OF THE BOX LIKE IT CLAIMS. IT USUALLY TAKES RECONFIGURATION OF THE FIREWALL AT LEAST TO MAKE IT WORK. THIS TELLS YOU SOMETHING. SORRY YOU HAD SUCH A LONG WAIT FOR SERVICE. YOU SHOULD GET A MEDAL FOR HANGIN IN THERE FOR 2 HOURS! HOW THIS WORKS FOR YOU NOW. I DIDN'T KNOW YOU WERE SHARING THE COMPUTER OR I WOULD HAVE SUGGESTED YOU CALL NORTON, BECAUSE THEY USUALLY HAVE TO TWEAK THEIR PROGRAM TO GET IT TO WORK. BUT, AT LEAST IT WORKED OUT IN THE LONG RUN FOR YOU AND THAT'S WHAT COUNTS! IF I CAN HELP ANYTIME JUST REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217

How do I find a safe free anti virus download? is "AVG Free Safe" ?


Type "best free anti-virus of 2014" into your search engine. You will be presented with a variety of choices and lists by those who have reviewed the available free anti-viruses and how they are rated. Good websites to look for include 'bleeping computer', 'pc magazine' and 'cnet'. All of these will have what you are looking for. If you would like a personal recommendation, I would suggest you download 'bitdefender' or 'panda'. Avg Free Safe is a suitable anti-virus but be sure to download it from AVG itself and not through any third party. Also, there is a website named 'mostiwant' and they have recommended free computer security downloads with direct download links. Try there first and look for the free 6 month trial of Norton and install that as Norton is in the top 3 best anti-virus category. That's the one I use.
