To correct such a problem you will need to start the system in windows safe mode. To get into safe mode, boot the computer and hold down the "F8" key until a menu appears. Select "safe mode" and allow the system to boot. You should then be able to access the "D" drive and install Norton. Enter safe mode after the reboot to use the Norton utilities effectively. Fixes usually don't work unless you are in safe mode.

If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

Speed Up Your PC/Notebook!! - Windows


Note - We are not responsible for any Damage/Data Loss!!

Many People have observed that the speed of the PC/Notebook is really slow. It makes people mad when it take minutes to even open a File or Song.Certain steps would ensure that this would be taken care of.

1. Basic Settings - RAM is the best measure of the Speed. More the RAM, more the processing speed and vice - versa. In an experiment, it was shown that XP can run even on 128 MB while most of the other Operating System Failed. So, if you are using XP, you should be glad enough to know that.

Ideally RAM should be more than 256MB. ( Higher - Better Results )

2. Norton - In a report, it was indicated that the speed of PC was slow due to Norton Applications. However, Norton do officially introduce patches that would fix this. I would advise you to use a Different Anti - Virus, but even if you want to use Norton, Make sure it should be updated.For Norton update, Right Click the Norton icon on the Lower Bottom corner of the task bar and click on Update. Once updated, it would improve the situation.

3. Virus, Adware,Spyware, Malware, Keyloggers - Always aware of all these. If you have any one of these installed/Present in your PC/Laptop, this is dangerous. These could make permanent registry changes and crash your PC. Make your PC work like insane that you need to wait even more than 5 minutes for an application to open. The hardest part, your data could be stolen without your authorization.

Install an Anti - Virus and Scan the Complete PC/Notebook to make sure everything is all Set to GO.

4. Data - You might have observed whenever you want to save Data, the first option you get is Save it - Windows C. This is the Drive ( On most Occasions ), where your Windows Files are situated, Always try to avoid data in the driver where you have Saved Windows Files.You would see an improvement.

5. There are Few other steps like Disk Clean and Defragmentation of the Hard Drive that would also help you.

6. Virtual Memory - You must have hear regarding Virtual Memory. This is the best bet , if you want to increase RAM speed without adding physical RAM.This option works like miracle.


There is a Well Known Trick for XP Users - They could increase the Speed tremendously by Disabling the Group Policy Option in your Computer.

7. Registry Clean - If your system is slow after a recent Virus/Adware attack ( Even after removal ), or might work in a strange way, after you have installed a Software/Driver or due to some change you made , it would mean that there has been a change in Windows Registry. You need to Fix this. Either Restore the PC or Download Registry Cleaning Software.

I hope the above point's would be able to Fix 99% of the problems associated with Speed.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Norton 360 install has replaced/overridden DVD drive

Hi, I can certainly understand how you feel and hope I can help.

error 19 isnt necesarily a corrupt driver, it can be 2 drivers trying to use the same resource (as in norton's backup drive and your cd drive, for example)

Try this - Click the start button, right click on "Computer", select "Properties", then click "Device Manager" in the upper left hand corner.

Open the bit that says "CD/DVD Drives" and try right clicking on the drives there and selecting "Update Driver Software". This will probably do nothing. Don't worry, I didnt really expect it to. Now right click on the drives, and select "Delete" and then reboot. This will reset the drivers for ya.

This fix usually DOES work. Most of the time. If it doesnt work, try the ones below.

Your CD drive or DVD drive is missing or is not recognized by Windows or other programs - a Mr Fixit

The CD drive or the DVD drive does not work as expected on a computer that you upgraded to Windows Vista

When you insert a CD or a DVD, Windows Vista may not recognize the disc

Your CD or DVD drive cannot read or write media - A Mr Fixit

CD/DVD drive does not appear in Windows Vista, or you receive this error during Windows Vista setup after booting from the DVD (AHCI)

CD-R drive or CD-RW drive is not recognized as a recordable device

Hardware devices not detected or not working - A Mr Fixit

Hope these help.

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.

You don't need to format your computer lesaharmstro. All you have to do is uninstall the current copy of your anti virus, and install a fresh new copy of avast 4 home edition.

To download the Avast 4 home edition for free, click on the follwing hyperlink:

Scan and delete all viruses.

Then download a registry cleaner. It'll fix all bugs in your computer, such as system errors, etc. As well as remove spyware.

Download the reg cleaner by clicking on the following link:

Run the program, select the necessary boxes, and click repair.

Hope this helps
