Re: error creating dec3.cfg

You need to check in add/remove programmes and make sure all previous elements of norton are uninstalled first, then run a registry clean up, it should then install, but be aware a 2004 version may not be compatable with your current operating system version as it's over 3 years old and outdated. For a free reg cleaner (Ccleaner) see below

Lock your Mozilla Firefox Homepage from Hijackers permanently

I got soooo tried of toolbars like Ask and Google changing my startup tabs and then not being able to restore then even using session restore on TabMixPlus XPI for Firefox to I devised my own method to lock my desired tabs just for me now I share this with you all, note you can still install this XPI make sure that you set it to show homepage on restart so that if you use restart it will still work, as well as just closing the browser window using the usual red right-hand cross

The two modes of TabMixPlus showing Firefox Built in Session Restre and TabMixPlus Session Manager you can't use both at the same time >>


This is a tried and tested 100% to lock your homepage from hijackers and give you the tabs that you want to start with time and time again I have set my two tabs to the Router control panel for Sky Sagem F@ST Router and my FixYa page, use your own...

First create a file called homepage.txt and place these line inside it and save it as a text file with the file extension *.txt

lockPref("network.proxy.type", 0);
lockPref("browser.startup.homepage", "|");

If you want extra tabs add more pipelines | after the aspx then download this and to create a homepage.cfg file use 13 as the shift by value


You then need to change the all.js in the C:Program FilesMozilla Firefox folder you need to add this line to the end to action you new file and save it

pref("general.config.filename", "homepage.cfg");

When you restart Firefox you will see that under the options tab the homepage will be greyed out OR locked.


For a second opinion check this using the about:config option in the MR Tech Toolkit XPI also worth installing I have used this since it was called local install way back. Then benefits of this method are 100% locked from hijackers and user definable whenever you want to change your homepage just copy and paste the new URLs that you want after each pipeline make sure that you create another cfg file before you start the browser it will fail unless it can read the homepage.cfg file you have been warned.


Here is my Sky Drive Link for an example that you can use HERE copy the entire folder to you Mozilla Folder then you can use it if you want to change the homepage.txt to add or remove tabs don't forget to Bit Shift it afterwards

I am having trouble downloading norton 360 2.0 version

hi giles

can you specify what error message did you get?

are you using dial up or broadband?

downloading isnt that hard but if this still gives some problems, you can always call symantec support and state to them that you will order a FREE cd because you are having problems downloading.

you are upgrading from NIS08 to n360 right?

have you checked if your computer supports the system requirements of n360?

upgrading usually have some problems but more or less, if you use the cd, the problem will be gone.

Will not install

Go into search mode, type in words such as Mcafee in all files and if some thing comes up delete. This will clean out any old Mcaffe which many manufactures installed. Alos do the same with Nortons, or the word symantic. Good Luck
