Question about Symantec Norton AntiVirus 2008: Windows

2 Answers

Programs & applications are not opening.

It's since I've installed norton anti virus 2008 that I'm suffering the problem. It was allright for some hours after installation. But from the morning whenever I'm trying to open any apllication every 2nd apllication is not responding, only after restarting the system it's opening but as soon as I jump to open another program or even a single folder the same problem is occuring again. Only if I'm working on internet there is no such problem except the speed of internet. At first I thought the problem is due to norton but now as I've no alternative I need your help.

Run the Norton Removal Tool to remove your Norton Anti Virus:

Norton Removal Tool

And then install Norton Anti Virus 2011 and activate it with your 2008 Product Key:

When you say you have problems with a lot of Virus then install in safe mode and do there a full scan.

Norton product key


Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

You will need to visit Norton's website to obtain a legal key. You may as well update to the newest version if you purchase. The license run yearly on all anti-virus products.

I would like to suggest a totally free and really good anti-virus that would help you out. It is called IOBIT and can be found here. If you decide to go with any other (including my suggestion) anti-virus, be sure and removed the old Norton 2008 from your computer first before installing the other. Two anti-viruses can cause havoc on one machine.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

I cant uninstall norton antivirus 2008


Norton Anti-Virus 2008 was made to not be uninstalled. It had integrated itself into your system files preventing Windows Installer from removing the anti-virus machine. Symantec has made this tool available to remove the product. However believe me when I say traces of Norton will remain until the hard-drive is reformatted.

Once you remove Norton, I highly recommend you stop using Symantec products and check out ESET's product line of Anti-Virus and online-security tools.

New purchased nortan 360 not install (old version march 2008)


It seems that you have an old version of Norton installed in your system. If so, uninstall it properly (tough job since plain uninstalling does not remove all traces of this program). You might check out the free `norton uninstaller' tools available at the link provided below.

http://service1.symantec.com/Support/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039

By the way, have you purchased a multiple license Norton product? If not, I'd not recommend installing it in more than 1 PC.

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

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.
