Tip

Do you have Norton Anti-Virus on your PC.


8 out of 10 computers have Norton Anti-Virus installed on their PC. Or you getting message to tell you to update your subscription? If so read on.

Have you notice that your PC is slowing down, or you getting blue screens, is your PC slow to boot, those your PC shutdown really slow. Are you getting pop-ups stating that your PC is infected. These are all symptoms of an out of date Norton Ant-Virus subscription. Even if you have have a current Norton Anti-Virus subscription you may still be infected.

OK, so here is how to fix your PC. First if you do not want to use Norton Anti-Virus anymore you need to remove it. You need to remove it from the control panel add/remove programs. You also need to get the Norton removal tool from Symantec, which makes Norton Anti-Virus. Watch my video from more details. Click here

So now your PC should be running better than before. Remember once Norton Anti-Virus is removed you need to scan it for viruses and then protect it. I recommend and personal use Avast, it is Free for home users and it simply works. Avast does not slow down your computer and it updates everyday with a visual and audio indicators. What more could you ask for. I use Malwarebyte's Anti-Mal ware on-line protection in conjunction with Avast for total protection. You can get that here. Try the free version first and it will get all those infections that Norton Anti-Virus failed to protect. Then upgrade to the Pro version if you need it. Here is the site http://www.malwarebytes.org/.

So now your PC is virus free and protected. What else can you do. I would get Ccleaner from www.ccleaner.com, this is also a free utility that I use. It removes all those temp files and other junk that is slowing down your PC. I do not recommend any registry programs. If you have any those on your PC. You need to remove them, they do not work.

The last thing you need to get is to de-frag your hard drive. I use this one. It is also Free so get it. Click here.

So now you are done and your PC should be a lot faster and better. However if you are still having issues you need to reload your whole operating system. Most people do not have the original CD so you will have to get a professional to do this. If you need help with that you can visit my site at www.adjustservices.com.

I hope this tip was helpful.

What is the best antivirus?


The best free antivirus in my opinion is Avast 5. Though AVG is also good.
A paid antivirus would has Kaspersky or NOD32. I wouldnt recommend McAffee or Norton because they slow down your system.
Also, install SpyBot Search And Destroy. Its the best anti-malware/spyware software around.

Cheers.

What the disadvantages of norton antivirus and what are the performance norton antivirus


Norton may slow down the performance of your computer,and it is a paid software what i think is instead of going with this you can download any of these free software (avg,avast or avaira) they all are free for one year and do the same thing what norton does without slowing down your computer.

DOES NORTON MAKE A COMPUTER SLOW MY COMPUTRER IS REALLY SLOW AND SOMEONE TOLD ME THAT IS ONE OF THE REASONS AND TO USE A DIFFERENT SECURITY AND SOME ONE ELSE SAID TO CHANGE MY BROSER DON'T KNOW HOW TO DO...


You are caught between a rock and a hard place.

Norton, and ALL security software use a fair amount of resources. They are there to protect you.

You cannot expect a good and constant monitoring program to be light, unless you use a low quality security program that is near useless.

I wish these programs were also smaller, but with today's severe threats, we need severe protection.

Please put up with Norton or you may download free security programs which are excellent from this link: -

Toshiba Equium A210 Laptop and the screen keeps on going blank


Hi...I have had the same problem with my A210 laptop as well over the last year.The problem is sporadic and it would just happen out of the blue.My daughter has the same laptop and the same problem.The screen would go blank ,but you could tell the computer was still functioning somewhat in the background.The only way to fix it was to reboot and if you were working on anything it was lost.I also recently had another similar problem.I had the laptop set to go to sleep when i shut the lid.This worked great for a year or so.When i opened the lid the screen would come back on and i could continue using the computer where i left off.But recently when i opened the lid the screen would come back on for a few seconds then go blank ,just like it did as described in the first problem above.Not sure why as i had not changed any settings on my computer.It happened every time i closed the lid then opened it.A pain as had to reboot to get it back.Here is the fix my friend discovered.Click on the ATI icon in the taskbar and open up the CATALYST CONTROL CENTER.Make sure the advanced view is selected.Now choose "display options".Put a dot in "Detect whenever catalyst control center is opened",and leave the other 2 spots unchecked.( I had a dot in these 2 places ). Now apply the changes and close it out. I have had no problems since doing this with the screen going blank.Not sure why this worked ,other then the computer was getting confused along the way and shut off the screen.Just be aware that if you hook your laptop to a TV you will have to revisit the ATI setting and change them back.....Hope this helps...Dan

My Norton anti virus has stopped working and will not activate


Bro, my suggestion is, you uninstall you Norton Anti-virus including the Symantec folder installation then install one that is free but can still perform as good as Norton. I am not saying NOrton Anti-Virus is a bad program but, it is systemic and slows down your computer a bit. Norton is a great product everybody kows that !!!! What i can share with you is that, try downloading AVG free or AVAST home edition for which, if you are connected to your net, they regularly send updates to your computer as long as you are registered and your key is up to date. If your Norton Anti-virus is notactivating, it only means one thing, it's not updated.

When i click on to my msn it lets me sign in but after a few seconds it says there is a problem and the programme cant run properly it then closes it


Try a new search engine such as google and see what happens. What happens when it closes? Goes blue screen, back to desktop, etc? Sounds a little like you may have a virus, trojans or some malware. Run a good antivirus, AVAST is good and free also AVG is Free. Nortons and McCaffee expensive and very little support and slow your computer down.....

Need to put norton 360 on this laptop. 2nd of the possible 3, allowed


don't use norton 360, it will only slowing down your pc if your computer not powerful enough.
Thus, norton not really a good antivirus.

bitdefender total security is good enough for you. It has a option called game mode that won't slowing down your pc

Norton internet security instullation has failed


Good, you do not want Norton installed on your PC. Norton is the biggest resource hog. It will try to monitor everything you do on your pc. It will slow the whole thing down. You will be better off going with ZoneAlarm. If you do get Norton installed, you will have a much harder time trying to get it uninstalled when It slows your pc down, trust me. I knw from experience.
