Cannot install norton virus

The acer has not place to put a cd and my husband bought a norton 360 2.0 version and it can be used on 3 computers. Since I don't have a cd rom drive, how do I install it. I have the product key to install it, but I am at a loss. Called Office Depot and they did not know what to do.
Thank you for your quick response

    There are several ways, Over your wireless network, a flash drive, or a portable hard drive. if you have a usb to usb wire that would be the easiest, just run it on one machines dvd drive, into a folder on the desktop of the other, or just install it the same way, from the cd/dvd drive to the laptops hard drive

Ok, you have two choices here. you can purchase a external CD ROM drive and hook it up to this laptop if there is not a pre installed drive present. You can find these external drives at office depot. The second choice is to log onto the Norton website and purchase a on-line download. this will allow you to download the Norton software, via on line transfer.

Please rate and god bless:)

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.

You may be able to purchase a recovery disk from Acer.
Failing that if you have the Windows installation CD you can boot up with the Windows CD and run Repair.
If you do not have a Windows installation CD, you might be able to borrow one BUT check the Windows label on the bottom of the notebook for the Windows version and the Product installation code.
Make sure the Windows CD matches the version that is printed on the label.
You may need to install the Acer device drivers again then -
Download the drivers from the Acer WEB site. Make sure youselect the model of your laptop and the XP or Vista version of the drivers youthat require and it matches the Windows version that is installed on yourlaptop. Use this link to get to the Acer support: -

How do I install a second computer on my 360 account. The directions I have are not working. Can you walk me through it?


Easiest solution is to, rather than using the cd, download from the Norton website. This will allow you to install and use the latest version (version 4.0) with the cd key from you packaging.
The version can be downloaded from: The Norton support center upon running this file to install, you will be prompted for your cd-key. Enter the key and it will activate, allowing your Norton to work fully.
The concern is if you have installed the software before. Version 2.0 is a number of years old, and if it was installed more than a year ago, the subscription may be out of date and need renewed.
hope this helped, //halfs

McAfee?? this product you need to check how to totally remove it from your netbook because it will block most of the other anti virus. Consider as business strategy, so that end user just use this anti virus, rather than other.

Please help me to reinstall my norton 360 version 2.0 on my pc. the product was bought on the 2/19/09.


Hello,

Make sure you have the CD key or have registered your product on Symantec. You will also need any other Norton product keys if you have them installed on your computer.

Best advice I can give is to first run the Norton Removal Tool which can be found at Norton Removal Tool at Step 4. This will fully remove all Norton products from your system.

After you run the Removal Tool, you can reinstall the 360 software, run Live Update, and enter your CD Key to reactivate. It should pick up where you left off as far as Days Remaining.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Note: Should you still have a problem, try the on-line support that is included in the price of your 360. Access it through the Help selection on the menu. It is very good.

Cannot launch my Norton 360 to perform scan


Boot in safe mode and try to run virus software.
If you can remove hard drive? find another hard drive that has a system with virus software, and make your drive the secondary drive and run virus software.
Usually your virus cd boots or lets you make a boot floppy, when booted run virus software.
Have a nice day
