Are you running Mac or PC?

If you are running PC then (on XP) try going through the "Add or Remove Programs" process within "Control Panel" or (on Vista) try going to "Control Panel", then "Programs and Features", it will then list all the software installed on your system; you should then be able to select the one you want and click "Uninstall/Change". Both these methods (on XP and Vista) should prompt an uninstaller and correctly remove them from your system.

Here is a guide for Vista from my website: http://hawk12online.wordpress.com/2008/06/14/uninstalling-in-vista/

For info on removing it on a Mac, visit Google - I have very limited knowledge about Mac's.

Hope this helps :)

I am repeatedly getting reminders that I no longer have any anti virus protection for the year 2012


Go to
www.avast.com
Install the home edition.
Do a boot time scan, reboot the computer and it will remove any infections you had\have.

Norton is worthless, I've been in the PC world for almost 7years and for the first year I tried to use Norton with no luck. I have since stuck with Avast and never have an issue.

Can the experts here recommend a free antivius which does not slow down the system and at the same time provides reliable protection. I have tried a few and all of them did slow down my system. Thanks.


Norton Anti Virus is the best Anti Virus Software out there. Good alternatives are AVG and McAfee.
Download Norton: http://antivirus.norton.com/norton/ps/1up_ca_en_360t2.html?om_sem_cid=hho_sem_sy:us:ggl:en:e%7Ckw0000001532%7C7363813036
Download AVG: http://www.avg.com/us-en/buyav-ppc_1?ctype=ppc_us_gs_0005_buyav_1&wm_crID=4946383&wm_lpID=28388258&wm_ctID=383&wm_kwID=16996389&wm_mtID=1&wm_content=0&wm_g_crID=6384203462&wm_g_kw=www+%2bAVG+com&wm_g_pcmt=&wm_g_cnt=0&wm_kw=www+%2bAVG+com&wm_sd=1

On norton protection center i get fix protection up dates 0n fix on doing all required the problem is not solved the same applies tospyware definitions i end up with protection updates out of date


Your Norton that you bought in 2005 has expired.
Normally, the anti virus protection, you buy, will have an expiration of 1 year or 2 years. It will only have more, if you have purchased the license for more. If not,that is why your Norton is out ot date. Expired 2006!!! I DO NOT RECOMMEND NORTON
Some useful information below. Hope it helps.

SPEAKING WITH MY EXPERIENCE TRY SOMETHING ELSE.

FREE SPYWARE
Download Spybot Search & Destroy. Restart computer, then run Spybot to see what spyware comes up, AND DELET IT.

FYI---Virus Protection-- 2 programs of virus protection will conflict with each other and will actually cancel out the protection. SO just download one.

Running Spybot Search & Destroy with EITHER Avast or Avg (great Free virus protection programs ) will keep a computer in good working condition. FREE

I have a virus on my laptop need to update my norton virus protection


If you have 2002 Norton, this is really outdated. I would uninstall IT. A Virus normally corrupts your computer. You probably will need to do a Reformat. Be sure and do a Back-up First., because you will loose everything.

If you know how to do a back-up, save all your documents, pictures and music. If not take it to a reputable computer shop to take of this. There will be a slight charge, but they will save all your important data, like Your Music, Your Documents, and Your Pictures. If you find this information helpful, pls rate me.

I learned that my CA software was not operating properly because I still have Norton anti-virus on my system. CA support told me to uninstall Norton and reinstall CA. I downloaded the Norton removal tool...


I would suggest you use the normal method to uninstall your Norton Anti-Virus instead of using the Norton Removal Tool. If you still have problems, then just reinstall Norton Anti-Virus and then uninstall using the Add/Remove Programs from the Control Panel. Once you do that, then you can install your CA software. WinFax has notthng to do with your Anti-Virus not working, or your CA. The WinFax problem only is a problem because of Norton's Removal Tool is flawed. Don't use it. http:/www.getfaxing.com/winfax

Norton 360 has the entire norton protection suite built into it. On top of the firewall, phishing protection, and e-mail protection it also has norton antivirus built right into it. So yes, you have to uninstall antivirus to install 360, but 360 just installs antivirus again. If you ever decide to go back to using just antivirus you can simply redownload it off their web site.
