Re: worm update

Just restart the system and then try downloading the updates again, although sometimes the Symantec server can be overloaded and unable to allow the updates.

I am not able to updat my norton antivrus though it is still valid for another 500days above.symantic emial scanner endlessly scannin the emails that are never sent and slowing down my computer very...

You have most likely acquired some malware that Norton did not catch (this is not just a problem with Norton, but with all virus products). Go to and download the latest free version. If your malware is particularly nasty, it will block this site in which case you'll have to download the software on another computer and put it on a USB drive or CD. Boot your computer into safe mode (hit F8 repeatedly upon turning on your computer until the boot menu comes up) and select Safe Mode with Networking. Once in safe mode, install and run the MalwareBytes program. Let it update (if it can) and run a full scan (will take some time). After it completes, have it remove all infected files. Now reboot the computer and let it start normally. Run a complete scan with Norton and it should start updating again with no problems.

You most likely have a worm try to acces an antivirus online scanner and/or go to windows update if you are unable to access them as well you have Win32.Worm.Downadup.Gen. It prevents any access to any antivirus software and windows updates it also turns off any installed sntiviru updates. Removal is actually really simple just go here

Internet Explorer 8 vs. Norton Protection Center

Symantec/Norton has actually done a very good thing. You can update to Norton NIS2008 for FREE.
It solves the phishing problem and is a greatly improved product. CCSVCHOST.EXE does not run continuously and there is a resource meter to show what CPU usage Norton is taking. Scans are faster and web page loading is instantaneous.

Update problem with symantec antivirus

Close the antivirus program and reopen it. When it isclosed, the icon yellow for norton will not appear on bottom right hand side along with volume icon etc. You may also restart the computer to see id that helps. Right click the Norton icon and see id it says ENABLE AUTOPROTECT or DISABLE AUTOPROTECT. Try enabling.Try the same update after a while. If that does not work, try reinstalling Norton. I get 100s of viruses from 100s of friends and all sorts of things happen to me anti virus etc
but I am told that pretty normal

Symantec trusted application list will not install

Norton Antivirus 2005 has lots of errors and problems specially with its updates and also its virus scan is not reliable. Norton 2005 can also corrupt your windows while updating itself its better you uninstall it completely and go for Norton 2007 or my favourite Mcafee Total Protection 2007 which has no problems with updates and has anti spyware, registry repair and lots of things. You can also go for AVG Anti Virus which is quickest of all
