Have new laptop w/same problems as with desktop with being monitored/hacked. Using Norton 360 w/some success. As of yesterday, unable to access User Account or Parental Control features in Control Panel. When I click on icon, nothing happens. What to do? Also, I found ports and IP addresses where hacker(s) are from; how can I identify them? Thank you, Karen

    things like: another user is using your computer (or words to that effect) pop up; add ons put in not by me; I found IP addresses and remote ports just this week; I can't get into a locked area for software updates, etc.

    I share modem with roommate. He has wireless; I have lan. He denies monitoring, but I suspect. The hacking theory - well, that's my conclusion separate from monitoring.

Trying to find you a decent freeware detection software program... if they are monitoring you that should find it. In the meantime a program called spybot S&D may help. you can get it here.

http://www.safer-networking.org/en/spybotsd/index.html

download the program, install it.... update it and scan your computer... make sure everything is marked that it finds then select fix selected problems. I will give you my msn user name to add me if you wish to know some other methods for your own personal safety. I am NOT amused when someone invades a persons privacy

How Norton Antivirus Works


Norton has traditional virus detection method like Signature base and Heuristics base detection, with anti-virus, anti-rootkit, anti-malware, anti-spyware etc. Symantec upgrade and releases new and more improved features with its every release. Signature based detection includes searching for knowing structure within executable code, however your computer can be infected with most new virus which signature is not known. In that case heuristics method can be use it can identify new viruses by variation of such code, in files. Malwares are very difficult to detect even for the most new anti-virus software. If you are using Norton Antivirus, you should update its data-base and virus definition every day, so that when you scan your computer, it can detect all possible threats. Some new features like SONAR, it examines the behaviour of applications to decide whether they are malicious. Various things are checked such as if the program create a desktop shortcut or create add/remove programs entry before determining the program is malicious.

Norton insight is a program that comes with the Norton 360. It improves the speed and quality of computer scan. It identifies well known files of client machine and excludes them from constant monitoring and scanning. It only scans unknown and unsecured files. Skipping the already known files helps the scan more impact.

Norton 360 introduced a very effective tool - Norton Power Eraser, it removes threats which standard anti-virus may miss. It cleans up system where malware prevents anti-virus installation. Apart from these, the key technologies of Norton anti-virus software are anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-rootkit, and pulse-update - provides up-to-the-minute updates that protect against the latest threats without slowing down your computer, firewall software - that can use for mapping and monitoring network.

Cannot manage to load norton security programme


hi there,

although, not specified what you did but i presume 2 actions:

1. Running the program and cannot be completely loaded, it means that there's a program that block your Norton Internet Security 2008 to run, and that might be a Virus or Trojan. or someone is hacking in your pc (might be). and this will happen, if your Norton Internet Security 2008 is not updated and/or you install an internet plug ins in some of your visited website and through that plug ins the website administrator has a link in your pc to access, but not all.

solution: try to uninstall and fresh install your Norton Internet Security 2008 but before you do that make sure that you have a supported docs like cd key and response code from Norton if any, to successfully install your anti virus. and before you install, unplug your connection from internet (install offline, after installation, update it and scan your pc).

2. you install your Norton Internet Security 2008 and cannot be completely loaded, it means that Norton program is corrupted. please have a fresh copy in cd if any and install it.
