Do a full uninstall of Norton on the other computer.

Do it through add/remove programs if you wish, then use this tool.

Is malwarebytes company a scam for keeping your computer clean of virus's, malware, hacking


Malwarebytes is indeed a reputable company. The Malwarebytes product is outstanding and free (https://www.malwarebytes.org/). The paid offering provides automatic checking for / downloading of the latest malware definition files to help stop malware before it can get to your computer. They offer a $25 subscription that will provide coverage for up to 3 PCs for 1 year. They may have other offers too. I have a subscription and have been very pleased with the product. Keep in mind that malware is NOT the same as malware. To be protected, you need to have anti-malware software AND antivirus software installed. Microsoft has FREE anti-virus software that automatically updates. You can read all about it and download it here:

How to register with Mcafee 12 months free internet security 2013. this is included when i buy acernotebook.


After purchasing a McAfee program online or from your local computer software retail store, the program must be registered on the official McAfee website to receive product updates.
These product updates keep your software's virus definitions current, preventing new viruses from infecting your computer.
Once your product is registered, you will receive free virus definition updates for the length of your McAfee AntiVirus subscription, which is usually one year.
To maintain computer protection, renew your subscription annually.

Visit the McAfee registration page using the link Below.
http://software.mcafee.com/support/cust_care/reg_intro.asp
Click the circle next to the option detailing how your software was acquired, and click the "Continue" button to proceed with the registration process.

Enter your full name, address, phone number and zip code in the appropriate fields.
Enter your email address, and select where you purchased the software.

Click the drop-down menu next to "Product" and select the name of your software from the menu. Enter the product identification number found on the bottom of your purchased software box, or enter the activation number sent to your email address after you purchased the software.
Click the "Submit" button to finalize the registration.
McAfee will send an email to you confirming the completion of the registration.

Just got new HP laptop and i'd like to transfer photo's and some files from my old HP desk top computer. What do I need to do this?


If the old computer still works, see the following. Otherwise look for the * for a solution further below. If the old desktop has Windows XP SP3 or newer, you can use the easy transfer wizard. It is included in Windows 7.

If the old desktop has a network connection, you can use an ethernet switch to create a network to share files. Once both computers recognize the switch, set up a network. If you have Windows 7 on one computer and do not have it on the other, do not use the Homegroup network. This may come up automatically; otherwise, use the Network Control Panel and add a network. Start the Easy Transfer Wizard and set this computer as the new computer. There may be an option to get the Transfer Wizard to copy and install to the old computer. Note the code for the Easy Transfer Wizard. Then install the Windows Easy Transfer Wizard on the old computer and launch it. Set this computer as the old computer. Use the code given in on the first computer to synch the transfer. Go through the settings to select the files to transfer and then start the transfer. Prepare to wait a while for the transfer.

If you can't use the Easy Transfer Wizard, set the hard drive on one computer to Share (click Computer (My Computer) and right click on the hard drive and select Properties. Then choose the Sharing tab. Enable Sharing by clicking the Share button.) On the other computer, map to a network drive and locate the Shared drive. Drag and drop the files to the new computer.

If you already have a network connection to a cable or DSL router, you will be asked about "New network found" and to define it. Make sure to make it the home network on both computers. (If you were directly connected to a cable or DSL modem, then you will again get this question. Note the switch will not let your computers talk to the outside network without a router though.)

(Alternatively, use a cross-over ethernet cable with the direct cable networking option.)

Other options: use the Microsoft Easy Transfer Wizard to put the photos and files on a DVD, external hard drive or flash drive with sufficient capacity. You may need to download and install this program to the old computer. For the optical drive option, you need a DVD-RW drive on the desktop and a DVD reader (minimum) on the laptop. (You can use an external optical drive, if you have one.) Another option is a USB file transfer device. Some of these come with the Easy Transfer Wizard on their install disc.

*If the old computer will not turn on, take the hard drive out of the computer and use a USB to IDE/SATA adapter. Follow the directions for the device and attach it to a USB port on the laptop. See if the drive mounts (is listed when you open the Computer File Explorer). Then drag and drop the files from one drive to another.

Note you may need to change the owner of the files on the new computer. (This doesn't apply with the Easy Transfer Wizard if the old user is made equivalent to the new user in the setup of the wizard.) To change the owner, right click on the file in the File Explorer and choose the Security tab. Select the Advanced settings.

I hope this helps.

It is not possible to transfer the Norton Internet Security 2005 to new 2010 version. If you have enough subscription days, I recommend you to contact the technical support of Symantec. They will help you in accomplishing this task.

I renewed my subscription (order no.1863817887) on Dec 26 but am still getting messages that my sub has run out and computer is unprotected.



If you purchased the NIS 05 and you did not pay a new subscription in 2006, then it is expired.
You would have to purchase a new subscription for 2009 for 2010. Not a renewal. I would find that out, since NIS05 is not working.

We switched to windows 7 and I can't get spector to record


The Spector Pro software license agreement allows a user to install on an additional computer, if the new installation is being done to a computer that is replacing the original computer which Spector Pro was installed. The original computer must be taken out of service.
This policy allows customers who are upgrading to newer computers the ability to continue to use their Spector Pro license with their new computer. This transfer of the license from an old computer to a new computer can only be done once. Any installations of a Spector Pro serial number on more than two computers or on 2 or more computers simultaneously, will result in the Spector Pro serial number being disabled and the software being deactivated.

Why is my renewal via my computer not valid-Visa has been charged


Email Norton and tell them your situation, they will tell you what to do to fix the problem seems like a problem that's more there doing than yours.
Or
  1. Start your Norton product.
  2. Do one of the following depending on your Norton product:
    • For Norton 360: Click My Account, and in the My Account window, click Renew Subscription.
    • For Norton 2009 products: At the top right corner of the window, click Help & Support > Subscription Status. Skip to Step 6.
    • For Norton 2008 products: In the bottom-left corner, click Subscription.
    • For Norton 2007 products: On the product tab, click Support, and then click Subscription.
    • For Norton 2006 products: On the Help & Support menu, click Subscription.
  3. Click I have already purchased a subscription, check my subscription status.
  4. Click Next.
  5. Click Next.

My pc got window problem.Now I have instaled antivirus again. I am loading and got message that the time remainig is 80 days. what i have to do?


You need to contact the manufacturer of the antivirus program to verify your account. Usually, these programs' subscriptions or the number of days would start the first time you installed it. So even if you just reinstalled it, the subscription plan will continue. It will not go back.
