Norton rescue disk removal

I can't load an security update from Macfee because I suposably still have Norton Rescue DIsk still somewhere (though I can't find it). It is not in the add/delete programs,I have ran Norton program removal provided by Norton via their website, I have searched all flles and folders for anything that has Norton, disk, rescue, symentic, nsw, etc and can't find the file. Have had others give a try at it as well with no luck. How can I bypass the file so I can install Macfee or how can find this phantom file/program that supposably still exists on my computer.

Your best bet is to go to CNET.com and download a program named Revo Uninstaller. It's free and will clear out everything down to the depths of the registry.

If even Revo doesn't see it, I would reload Norton on your system, then uninstall with Revo.

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.


Regards,
Muhaim

Ghost disc will not boot, not recognized as valid windows copy


If it's a Norton disk, call Norton, it should be bootable. If it's a disk you burned, it may not be a bootable system disk. Make sure your computer is set to boot from CD/DVD drive in the bios (setup) Press F2(usually, sometimes it's delete) while booting, go into setup, and make sure under boot devices/sequence that your disk drive is first in the boot sequence. Try the disk on another machine to see if it's the disk, or the machine. If it's the disk, Call Norton (if it's theirs) or have someone make another one for you.

Installation problem


Uninstall the trial version using control panel uninstall.
Insert the Norton install disk. It will start automatically. Depending on the operating system on your system you may have to click 'OK' to allow the program to install, follow online instructions. Make sure to register your version so that you can get the latest updates and any user alerts and notifications.

I renewed my subscription on 10 March, Order No. NP12650135, but continue to get reminders to renew on your reminder pop-ups. Please input my renewal to reflect that subuscription has been renewed.


This is an issue that frequently comes up. Please make sure that you have your product key from your new subscription stored (the MyNorton account is a useful place to store the data since you can cut and paste the number into Norton IS).

First check if NIS 2009 has your correct subscription information. Start the program, click on Help and Support > Subscription Status. Click Finish when that window finishes its activity.

If it is still confused, my solution is to update to Norton Internet Security 2010 (no cost to you).

One way to do this is through the Norton Update Center:
http://updatecenter.norton.com/?NUCLANG=en

The other is to use the Norton Removal Tool:
ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/removal_tools/Norton_Removal_Tool.exe
After the product removes all trace of any Norton product and rebooting your computer, if you have a good internet connection, it will lead you through downloading and installing the updated product. I recommend the Removal Tool since frequently the error you report is due to NIS not correctly updating the registry when the new subscription is updated.

I hope this helps.

Raw file system


To fix the problem
Disable the S.M.A.R.T error detection feature in the CPUCool program or similar utility.
Boot to the Windows 2000 or XP installation CD, and at the Startup menu, press R for repair.
In the Recovery Console, type the following:
chkdsk /p
When the CHKDSK process has finished, reboot the computer.
Run the program again.
The error should no longer be reported unless you start using the S.M.A.R.T error detection feature again.

Error occurs with PartitionMagic 8.0
If you encounter Error 1516 with PartitionMagic 8, first run CHKDSK /F on the affected partition. For instructions on how to run CHKDSK, read How to Run Microsoft's CHKDSK from the Command Line. If this does not fix the error, try running PartitionMagic with the /IFC switch, which causes file system errors to be ignored.
To run PartitionMagic with the /IFC switch
Boot from the first PartitionMagic rescue disk.
When you are prompted to insert the second rescue disk, press Ctrl+C to drop to the command (A:>) prompt.
Insert the second PartitionMagic rescue disk and type the following:
pqmagic /ifc
Press Enter.
please go ahead and try the above steps may be it will fix it
