    I have this too, on the 3 computers I installed it on in my home. AND the parental controls are not working, at least the part that relies on the parental control list that was supposed to be downloaded with live update. SPent a lot of time with Symantec, and they could not fix it.

    I am having the exact same problem. I have installed on two computers. I spent 2 hours on-line with Symantec to no avail. I have re-installed several times, but I have the same problem.

    Same exact problem on 2 computers. The symantec technician reinstalled the program but it did not work

    I have exactly the same problem after I downloaded Norton 360 yesterday.

    Notification to update parental control keeps popping in N360, even if you click yes. Despite that, the parental control does not work, which is very worrying. I did a complete reinstall.. got online tech to work on my machine twice, but this did not help. I am thinking of switching to another product.. anyone knows any all in one product that can handle virus, firewall, parental control and backup ?

    I too have exactly this problem, and so, it appears, do others attempting to use the Norton 360 parental control add-on, see:

    One thing's for sure, Norton's technical support team doesn't appear tobe able to resolve this issue! I think that this may be a generalproblem that only Norton can fix. Perhaps, if we bombard them withemails drawing their attention to it they may do something about it. Inthe meantime I certainly won't be recommending this product to anyone else - it's already stolen hours off my Xmas Holiday and I don't intend to waste any more time on it!

If you are using teh n360.2 means just for the upgraded version that is n360.3 it has the inbuilt parental control
uninstall the older version through add/remove programs and install the latest version it will fix the issue..

My computer crashed and i had to reinstal my os. how do i reinstall my Norton 360

Download the latest version of N360 from this Link. The web page says after NRT usage but this applies to your situation also.
Make sure you have your product key handy (written down) or stored online in . Also, please make sure your system has all the MS updates and patches / Service Packs applied BEFORE you install N360.

Double click on the downloaded file and it will instruct you on the installation. Input the product key when asked or use the link on the bottom of the displayed window to find your key online and apply it.

After installing, run Live Update until it says there are no more updates found. Enjoy Norton 360.

Cannot launch my Norton 360 to perform scan

Boot in safe mode and try to run virus software.
If you can remove hard drive? find another hard drive that has a system with virus software, and make your drive the secondary drive and run virus software.
Usually your virus cd boots or lets you make a boot floppy, when booted run virus software.
Have a nice day
