Question about Symantec Norton 360 for PC (037648318846)

5 Answers

Is norton 360 still incompatible with vista home premium?

I read that Norton 360 and Vista were incompatible. I'm currently running Norton NIS without incident but was given a copy of 360 as a gift. Have the glitches been corrected?

thanks in advance...

    I'm not trying to cause a conflict, just trying to help you make a more informed decision. Norton is still a troublesome program where viruses can actually build themselves (or rebuild) themselves inside the designated quarantine folder. On top of that, Norton 360 uses a huge amount of system resources (compared to other total-security packages) and processes to do something simple. This equates to a slower system which, in some sense of the word, is not really protected.

    As a bonus, once you install Norton, you can't really get rid of it. As a matter of fact, Symantec made a tool that uninstalls Norton for you since a lot of the time Uninstallers aren't included in Norton installs or the uninstaller is faulty. Yes, you can uninstall it. However traces remain and will stay there until the Hard-Drive is formatted (I'm not suggesting you format your hard-drive unless you want to reinstall windows).

    If you want my suggestion on what to get for PC security, go for ESET's NOD32 Antivirus or Smart Security. They don't use near as much system resources as Norton, and they do a MUCH better job defending your system.

    Have a safe time in Binary-World. ;-)

How i can reuse the norton 360 v 4.3.0.5 Its trial period is expired. Plz send me product key or trial reseter. special thanks


Please remove the existing version of Norton program from the control panel, then go ahead and delete all Symantec and Norton files from the computer's C or D drive.

After that, open your registry and first take a back up just in case anything get deleted by mistake.
Then delete all Norton and Symantec files from HK CURRENT USER, HKEY LOCAL MACHINE, HKEY USERS, HKEY CURRENT CONFIG.

You can click on the SOFTWARE folder in each class to find the Norton files if any.
To open your registry editor, type regedit in RUN command (windows key+R)

After that you can again install a trial version of Norton for 30 days.

Norton 360 pop-up demndg activation bugs me even after activating


Seems there is an issue with the software instance installed on your computer. You may have to uninstall the version completely and reinstall and reactivate the product. To do this, try the following steps:
  1. Click Here to download the Norton Removal Tool. Download the file from the website and save it on your desktop. Now run the file (Right-click and Run as Administrator for Vista and Win7 users). After cleanup, the tool would ask you to reboot your machine. This removes the Norton product completely from your computer.
  2. Now goto http://www.symantec.com/norton/index.jsp and download the trial version of your product and install it on the computer. You can also use the disk for installation, if you have one.
  3. On installation, the product would give you the activation screen to register the product. Fill in your activation details appropriately to activate the license.

Done!
Good Luck -Abhishek
