This problem is being faced by many persons and a proper solution has not been reached as yet. What you can do is uninstall the Add-on pack and wait for the update to appear. What else is there to loose, the annoying uninstall problem or parental control (which is only necessary if you have children).

Activate Parental Controls b> Computers are great tools that help us in work, education and entertainment. They're versatile machines and provide great benefits, but that versatility opens the door for users to access inappropriate content. Microsoft Windows offers a number of controls to restrict or entirely block access to many content types. Unfortunately, the Parental Controls feature is not available in Windows XP or earlier systems, but Windows Vista and 7 have the utility preinstalled. You can set up the controls in a few steps and help protect anyone that uses your computer.

Click the "Start" button in the lower left corner of your screen and then click "Control Panel." Click "Control Panel Home" on the left of the Control Panel window, if it is not already selected. Click "Set Up Parental Controls for Any User." Select the account for which you want to set up controls. This is the "User Controls" section of that account. Select the "On, Enforce Current Settings" option on the left side of the window Click "OK." This activates whatever settings are currently on the computer. Parental Control Settings b> Access the "User Controls" section of the account you want to restrict. Select the type of control you wish to alter or put into effect. Your options include "Time Limits," "Games" and "Allow and Block Specific Programs." Windows Vista also has "Windows Vista Web Filter." Restrict when an account may be used under "Time Limits." You can set what hours the account is available for each day of the week. Set game rating limitations. These settings allow you to select which game rating is the highest permissible for that user. Restrict certain programs. You can block the use of whatever programs you prefer, such as video games or Web browsers. Set Internet restrictions. In Windows Vista, you can decide how strict to make the restriction level immediately; in Windows 7, you must first install the free Windows Live Family Safety 2011 suite http://explore.live.com/windows-live-family-safety?os=other Click the "OK" button in the "User Controls" section once you are finished with the control setup. Hope this helps.

The best thing to do is upgrade to Norton 360. V4.0.. I had problems with my 2005 Norton , too. For the price of $70.00 which allows you to install it on three different computers , you can't beat the price if you get two friends to split the total cost . That would be less than $25.00 each for a year of protection . And the new Norton 360 is the best I've seen so far . I stand behind it 100% .

You have most likely acquired some malware that Norton did not catch (this is not just a problem with Norton, but with all virus products). Go to www.malwarebytes.org and download the latest free version. If your malware is particularly nasty, it will block this site in which case you'll have to download the software on another computer and put it on a USB drive or CD. Boot your computer into safe mode (hit F8 repeatedly upon turning on your computer until the boot menu comes up) and select Safe Mode with Networking. Once in safe mode, install and run the MalwareBytes program. Let it update (if it can) and run a full scan (will take some time). After it completes, have it remove all infected files. Now reboot the computer and let it start normally. Run a complete scan with Norton and it should start updating again with no problems.

No Internet Connection after Installing Norton 360


I had same problem. I went to Start\All Programs\Accessories\System Tools\System Restore. I picked date before which Norton 360 was installed. It got my internet connection back. I'm not even going to try Norton anymore. Time better spent trying to get my money back.

Symantec trusted application list will not install


Norton Antivirus 2005 has lots of errors and problems specially with its updates and also its virus scan is not reliable. Norton 2005 can also corrupt your windows while updating itself its better you uninstall it completely and go for Norton 2007 or my favourite Mcafee Total Protection 2007 which has no problems with updates and has anti spyware, registry repair and lots of things. You can also go for AVG Anti Virus which is quickest of all
