I would remove this subscription.Do not update it. Go to add and remove programs and remove it from there. Then download AVG free and run that. AVG is a great free antivirus.

This can be resolved by installing and scanning the computer using Norton 360.

Click here to download Norton 360 version 3.0

After downloading Norton 360 double click on the installation file and follow on screen instruction to install the file.
Click on skip if it ask for product key.
After installing Norton 360 open Norton 360 and click on live Update to download latest virus definition on to your computer. This will helps norton to find and heal the up to date virus.

After running live update perform complete system scan using Norton.

Note:
  • Uninstall existing Antivirus on your computer before installing Norton 360.
  • Your system performance will be little low for about 7 to 10 days after installing Norton, after this period it will become Normal.
  • This is trial version which will provide you 30 days validity but even 1 year subscription does the same task. You can install whatever antivirus if you wish to switch over.

My symantec Anti-virus 10.0.0.359 is out of date. It has been 7 months after 1st time installation. Now it doesnt works. So i want it to start work again. What i should do?


I suspect you got 6 months free subscription to Symantec Anti-Virus when you bought your PC. If you want to continue to use it you will have to pay a subscription fee.

If you don't want to pay for Anti-Virus software, uninstall Symantec using the "add/remove programs" control panel then download and install AVG 11 Free Edition:

If you wish to install AVG in any language other than English, there is a link at the top of the page to change the language.


Please rate this solution if you find it helpful. Thanks.

I can not make update for norton antivirus , massage number LU1814 apper


Update your antivirus program if an update wasn't performed during the install or you didn't have an Internet connection available to you during the installation.

Update your virus definitions, the "signatures" that identify known viruses. When you buy your antivirus program, you'll receive a subscription for an update service which will allow you to download any new virus definitions. The update subscription is often for a year, so eventually you'll have to purchase a new subscription.

Upgrade your antivirus program. Antivirus companies release new versions of their software every few years. The new version will have features not available in your current system. Purchase these new upgraded programs and you'll have the latest features, enhanced virus protection and a fresh subscription for virus definition updates.

Maintain your antivirus software by scheduling automatic updates. If you rely on manual updates, you can easily forget to perform them and your virus definitions can fall behind

Very high viras in my laptop


be sure that virus definitions on your anti virus client is fully up to date. Having an anti virus software with an out dated virus definition is like having a gun with out any bullet. Update your virus definitions and do a full scan on your laptop.

Webroot has not downloaded virus definitions since 8/27 Connection to program engine is lost. Should I delete Webroot & re-enter the Webroot disc??


Try going to the help screen in the program and there should be a spot that says update or repair. Do this first the program may just be out of date or in need of a self repair. Updates on virus systems should be run at least once a month.

Symantec antivirus scheduled updates time resetting to default


It sounds like you need to be using managed mode for the workstation installations. When you do this, the server will contact the workstations when there is a new update, and not the other way around. You wont have to worry about when it checks if that is the case.
