Assuming you cannot access the internet with the computer in question (if you can, open Symantec and find "Update".

Here is the link to the area of Symantec to get the latest virus definition file;
http://www.symantec.com/business/security_response/definitions.jsp
Get the correct signature file based on your program version under "Select Product" Download & transfer to the correct location within the Symantec folders (Follow instructions)

Most likely you'll need to be able to view your system files.
(For XP) Go to: Tools/ Folder Options/View/ Uncheck "Hide protected Operating system files"

Let me know if this helped you

Can you please let me know when i am using internet does this effect my system


Using the internet is very beneficial for the user as well as the system. However, while using internet you may take some precautions. First and foremost is to have a good Antivirus/ Firewall Program and keep it updated. This will prevent the system from any virus threats/ intrusions etc from the internet.
Hence, it is highly recommended that you should install Antivirus program, keep it up to date and enjoy surfing the internet.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

I have a trogen virus and no money can I fix it for free?


You can use free antivirus like Avira, Avg or Avast, they are as effective as full version antivirus if updated regularly and registered successfully.

You can download::
1. Avast Free

2. Avg Free

4. Avira Free


Don't install two antivirus at a time, if you are installing one of them or if there's any antivirus program installed on your computer, please uninstall and install the new one, otherwise you may have another problem with your problem.

First install Avast and run a full system scan, then check the scanned result, if you are sure that those trojans or virus etc..etc.. are removed, you are done, no need to uninstall and reinstall the other, or if you still doubt, you can try with the other two after the first one is uninstalled.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Motherboard having a system password , idonot know what is its pa


Open the case and look for a jumper switch (usually blue or black color) labeled CLRTC or CRL. A jumper switch is a small connector connecting two pins on the motherboard. Same like the one in CD ROM drive or hard drive for selecting master or slave.
If you find it, unplug the power cable, remove the jumper. Wait 10 - 15 seconds, then put it back. Plug the power cable and try power up your computer.

Unable to remove all legacy symantec information in registry


When I see and hear the word symantic I know thats Norton. Norton is notorious for detecting virus that isn't there and refusing to let you uninstall it. What I did is down load a software called your uninstaller, I installed it, and even though your symantic is not listed in your control panel for uninstalling, this software is outstanding and will find it. it even goes into your system files and registry and finds any remnants of the program and completely destroys it. In your search window type in Uruninstall, I think thats the name. Or just plain your uninstall. Its been awhile but its wonderful. I never installed Norton again. Good Luck.

Hi there my name is Alex and im here to help you with this problem

Is the antivirus that was downloaded called win antivirus 2008? This is a virus its self and causes many problems even to the desktop. What you can try doing is restarting your computer and running Safe mode by pressing F8 just before windows boots and selecting safe mode. Whilst in safe mode, the internet is not available and some drivers are disabled which means you should be able to uninstall any programs without problem

If you are experiencing problems downloading AVG updates using the internet, you can download the updates manually from this website http://free.avg.com/download Here you will find a basic guide of how to install this.

I hope this can be some assistance to you. If you experience any problems, please let me know
