Norton 360 running on Windows 7. Program no longer placing spam into anti-spam folder.


Please check if the spam folder by Norton is present on your Outlook

If that is not there, you will need to re-install the program

To reinstall, follow the simple steps:
>> download the latest version of Norton 360 from the link www.norton.com/n360s_5
>> save the file to your desktop
>> double click the downloaded icon
>> it will remove the existing version and also restart your computer
>> after the reboot, the installer will automatically pop up or you just double click on it again.
>> that will install the latest version onto your computer
>> recheck if the spam folder is there and and all the spam messages are being moved to it

**please note that there are two version of Norton 360, Standard edition and Premier edition.
I have given the link to download the standard edition. Just in case if your Norton 360 is a Premier one, you need to use the link www.norton.com/n360p_5. They have different product keys and you cannot activate a Standard edition with the product key of Premier one.

Muhaim

Try uninstall norton antivirus and load avira antivirus, run word program and check whether an error will come out. If no error, your antivirus might be corrupted and somehow affects your application. If error still occurs after replacing norton, uninstall office program and reinstall again.

Yes the setting in Norton is uninstall. It is a resource hog with it's own agenda.Internet security is built in to the system (your firewall) Norton trys to replace them with it's own tags. AVG antivirus is free and blows Norton away.So bye bye Norton .You will also notice an increase in speed.

Norton 360 just installed and now yahoo messenger won't start


Hi, This may be a little help, i used norton 360 with vista and had a few problems with msn, i have since removed norton for other reasons but in the settings or tools there is an exceptions page where you can choose the programs that nortons can ignore if you tell it to allow msn it will then work ok. I believe nortons sees msn as a threat because it has in and out communications therefor it shuts msn down. I hope this helps if not try avg8 it works very well with vista.

I have a HP computer, with Windows XP,2002. I had Norton Antivirus 2007, via CD, added to my computer. I want to UNinstall the program. Everything seemed to go OK, --then a display that said, Setup...


Hi co2donjo,

It appears that your un-install didn't quite finish in its entirety, no problem try this:
First off, go to control panel and click on security, see if windows still recognizes norton as your antivirus. If not and it says you are unprotected, go ahead and download the av of your choose, however, Avast is hard to beat, its free and reliable. Follow the setup instructions. You may get a message that says "Avast has detected other av programs install on this computer-do you want to continue with install, click yes or OK. Once your av is up and running go around and delete anything and everything that says norton/symtac. There are quicker ways of deleting the norton av, but, that would depend on your level of windows expertise. You don't want to go snooping through your root directory or your root if your not clear on what to do, so, try this and see if it helps.

ø (Note: - You need to choose a Date before the installation of Norton)
ø Click OK if a pop-up window about closing programs appears. The Confirm Restore Point Selection window opens.
ø Click Next. The computer should shut down and turn back on automatically after the restoration completes. The Restoration Complete window appears.
