My McAfee cover has expired and my computer is no longer protected. I have not received an invoice or notification to renew it. How do I know who and what to pay?


go on line to mcfee security
there will be a renew section or buy and install
pick one and pay on line and you will receive an 25 digit code to use to get the security working again as an e mail or e-mail as a link
put that in the slots and it will start up again

After installing webroot comp applications does not work


There might be a conflict

Background b> Many personal computers connected to the Internet will more than likely eventually become infected with spyware, malware, viruses or Trojan horses. Such programs spread via spam, bad links or freeware. Once they invade your computer, they can do anything they want, such as disabling your antivirus software, tracking your keystrokes and deleting files. b> About McAfee and Webroot b> McAfee and Webroot are some of the most popular computer security programs. Both companies have features on their programs, such as firewalls and live scans, which prevent future infections. Computer owners, however, should never run two programs since they cause each other to crash. Only one antivirus program should be on a computer at once. b> Spyware Prevention b> Along with using computer security programs, computer owners can prevent infections by browsing the Internet with caution. They should avoid file sharing and ad-laden websites since such websites often harbor spyware. They should also avoid downloading anything without researching it beforehand use as safe a Web browser as possible. If you right click in the bottom toolbar select task manager under processes and the applications tabs you will see what is running and ticking over if you see something running that should not be select end now or even uninstall it or disable it Hope this helps

Just got new HP laptop and i'd like to transfer photo's and some files from my old HP desk top computer. What do I need to do this?


If the old computer still works, see the following. Otherwise look for the * for a solution further below. If the old desktop has Windows XP SP3 or newer, you can use the easy transfer wizard. It is included in Windows 7.

If the old desktop has a network connection, you can use an ethernet switch to create a network to share files. Once both computers recognize the switch, set up a network. If you have Windows 7 on one computer and do not have it on the other, do not use the Homegroup network. This may come up automatically; otherwise, use the Network Control Panel and add a network. Start the Easy Transfer Wizard and set this computer as the new computer. There may be an option to get the Transfer Wizard to copy and install to the old computer. Note the code for the Easy Transfer Wizard. Then install the Windows Easy Transfer Wizard on the old computer and launch it. Set this computer as the old computer. Use the code given in on the first computer to synch the transfer. Go through the settings to select the files to transfer and then start the transfer. Prepare to wait a while for the transfer.

If you can't use the Easy Transfer Wizard, set the hard drive on one computer to Share (click Computer (My Computer) and right click on the hard drive and select Properties. Then choose the Sharing tab. Enable Sharing by clicking the Share button.) On the other computer, map to a network drive and locate the Shared drive. Drag and drop the files to the new computer.

If you already have a network connection to a cable or DSL router, you will be asked about "New network found" and to define it. Make sure to make it the home network on both computers. (If you were directly connected to a cable or DSL modem, then you will again get this question. Note the switch will not let your computers talk to the outside network without a router though.)

(Alternatively, use a cross-over ethernet cable with the direct cable networking option.)

Other options: use the Microsoft Easy Transfer Wizard to put the photos and files on a DVD, external hard drive or flash drive with sufficient capacity. You may need to download and install this program to the old computer. For the optical drive option, you need a DVD-RW drive on the desktop and a DVD reader (minimum) on the laptop. (You can use an external optical drive, if you have one.) Another option is a USB file transfer device. Some of these come with the Easy Transfer Wizard on their install disc.

*If the old computer will not turn on, take the hard drive out of the computer and use a USB to IDE/SATA adapter. Follow the directions for the device and attach it to a USB port on the laptop. See if the drive mounts (is listed when you open the Computer File Explorer). Then drag and drop the files from one drive to another.

Note you may need to change the owner of the files on the new computer. (This doesn't apply with the Easy Transfer Wizard if the old user is made equivalent to the new user in the setup of the wizard.) To change the owner, right click on the file in the File Explorer and choose the Security tab. Select the Advanced settings.

I hope this helps.

Try rebooting in "safe mode".That virus probably didn't delete your virus protection,just hid it.

I renewed my subscription (order no.1863817887) on Dec 26 but am still getting messages that my sub has run out and computer is unprotected.



If you purchased the NIS 05 and you did not pay a new subscription in 2006, then it is expired.
You would have to purchase a new subscription for 2009 for 2010. Not a renewal. I would find that out, since NIS05 is not working.

Contact Symantec by phone. To do this you need to create a support ticket before contacting Symantec. During the creation of the ticket you can choose if you want to call Symantec, or if they will call you. To create the ticket, go here:

http://www.symantec.com/norton/support/contact/contact.jsp?pvid=cs&id=ctcs1

Then click the link with the text, "Click here to call us." Afterward you can set up your support ticket. Just make sure that in the field labeled, "We can help you with one of the following:" you select, "Norton product subscriptions."

Once you get on the line with a representative you will need to provide proof of purchase (order form), probably your home phone number, and your mailing address. Afterward the representative will continue down the road of awarding you the refund.

I cannot tell if my norton security system is operational, because there is confusion about the subscritption renewal


go to your online norton account and check the renewal date.

if the norton tray icon is green, it's active. if red, or black, it may not be. also, when the norton runs out, the windows warning will come up saying the system may not be protected due to no anti-virus.

note: there are many free a/v and anti-spyware programs available so you need not pay for anything. www.downloads.com
