What the disadvantages of norton antivirus and what are the performance norton antivirus


Norton may slow down the performance of your computer,and it is a paid software what i think is instead of going with this you can download any of these free software (avg,avast or avaira) they all are free for one year and do the same thing what norton does without slowing down your computer.

Can't access Norton Security paid for Dec. 26, 2009


Norton internet security has 365 days Validity from the date of first activation. as long as you have the product key you will be able to install the Norton program on your machine. if you have any other security software in the computer you will have to uninstall them first else the computer will get slowed.

1. download the software from the following link www.norton.com/NIS10 and save the file on your desktop
2. Download the Norton removal tool and run it so that you can remove all Norton program which are installed earlier on your computer use the link:- www.norton.com/nrt
once the computer is restarted you can open the file which is saved on your desktop and follow the screen.
Hope this helps

Do I need a Norton-type security for my laptop, or is AVG sufficient ?


Hi,
AVG is more than sufficient for a home computer.
Norton takes quite a lot of system resources and slows computers down dramatically. AVG on the other hand uses 2/3rds less resources than Norton and is just as good.


Reagrds.

Norton Internet Security 2009 Causes Blue Screen of Death.


Hi there
Thats Norton for you! this is a very heavy and memory hungry program, it takes control of your computer and if you have not got enough system or virtual memory it will cause the pc all kinds of problems. To fix this either upgrade the system memory or don't use Norton, use AVG free instead, its a lighter program and lets you have some speed back over the internet.

good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Norton or avg free edition?


Both AVG and nod32 are quite good against viruses, but being only antivirus, and not a complete security suite, are both weak against other malaware threats.

If you do not want to buy a complete security suite like Nornon internet security, or Macafee security sute you can buy either AVG or nod32. Install a firewall like Zonealarm or similar to integrate the antivirus protection. AVG takes less RAM than nod 32, otherwise performances are similar.

If you are really worried about additional threats, you can integrate a free antivirus with a firewall and a good antimalaware like Spybot-S&D. This may slow down the computer a bit.

Norton renewal subscription


the problem lies in the registry uninstall norton 360 then re-install this clears the reg then try your key again.

my personal View Don't use norton 360 as it will slow your system down use Kespersky Internet security this is the best one out and also use avg virus program when you switch to kaspesky internet security then remove avg which you can get a free version.

it is a review of all the security softwares. and also ill recommend you to install, Tuneup Utilities 2008, it will keep your computer clean of junk files.
