Lost all connection with internet

After downloading an update from Norton internet security, I lost all connection with the internet.I phoned my carrier, told them the problem and they tell me it is an issue with Norton. I cannot get Norton to respond with me. May I ask if there is a way to reconnect to the internet? I HAVE PAID the $9.95 for an answer. Will be very happy to have this issue resolved. Thanks so much!

Looks to me the EASIEST thing to do would be to use SYSTEM RESTORE function for windows and go back at least one day before you installed the update. That should lick this problem.

You may also try to disable Norton and see what is does for you internet connection. Uninstalling Norton is not out of the question, but you may have to get the NORTON REMOVAL TOOL to completely get rid of Norton.

Hope it helps!

NORTON INTERNET SECURITY 2011 just installed from CD. All seems ok but... When I switch on the computer I get the speech bubble saying "automatic updates is turned off. Click here to fix the problem....


Hi,

I think you are confusing the Windows Update with the Norton Automatic update.

Please open your Norton product and see if the status is at "Secure" on the top of the program.
If it is secure with a green mark, you need not worry.

If it shows at "Risk", do the following steps:
Check if the Windows update is turned on or off.
Check if the computer's date and time is running correctly
If the problem still persist, reinstalling the Norton program will definitely fix the issue

To reinstall we need to first download the setup file from the link www.norton.com/nis11, which will download the latest version of Norton Internet Security.

Double click the downloaded file and that will remove the existing version and install the latest version.

Update not downloading


hi, this is common problem with norton. It must be showing live update failed. There is nothing wrong with norton ( u must have registered on the norton site). This problem is caused due to internet connectivity, you should have broadband connection, in order to download updates. The only cause is poor internet connectivity as updates are big in size to be downloaded, they need fast internet connection (especially in case of norton).

Or you can take it to the shop from here you have purchased norton, they will update in less than half an hour with a legitimate charge.

Try it!!!!!

Installing norton anti-virus without internet connection


Yes it is possible.
To install full version you need either to purchase a disk or to purchase the download from Symantech.

If you have purchased the download or if you want to install the trial version download, just copy the install file onto an usb memory stick.

Plug the memory stick with norton install file onto your computer with no internet and run the installer from usb stick.

This will install norton with no need for the Internet.

If you buy nortom full version you may need to validate installation by phone, but that is not complicate.

You can download Norton from one of the websites below:

Cannot manage to load norton security programme


hi there,

although, not specified what you did but i presume 2 actions:

1. Running the program and cannot be completely loaded, it means that there's a program that block your Norton Internet Security 2008 to run, and that might be a Virus or Trojan. or someone is hacking in your pc (might be). and this will happen, if your Norton Internet Security 2008 is not updated and/or you install an internet plug ins in some of your visited website and through that plug ins the website administrator has a link in your pc to access, but not all.

solution: try to uninstall and fresh install your Norton Internet Security 2008 but before you do that make sure that you have a supported docs like cd key and response code from Norton if any, to successfully install your anti virus. and before you install, unplug your connection from internet (install offline, after installation, update it and scan your pc).

2. you install your Norton Internet Security 2008 and cannot be completely loaded, it means that Norton program is corrupted. please have a fresh copy in cd if any and install it.
