Question about Dell Dimension 5100 (D51L1) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Norton Antivirus 2008

Since installing NAV 2008, there are websites I cannot connect to any more. This problem started the day I installed it. I get an error "the page cannot be displayed" I've contacted Norton, who said 'not r/t their product and contact my provider. Verizon said not r/t their service, contact Dell. Dell states it is the NAV 2008 and even tho I disabled it and still cannot connect to the websites, they said it still is in my computer and the only way to fix this problem is to wipe out my OS and reinstall it. This is not an option since I do not want to lose all my files, etc. Each of these contacts did a remote access and could not fix the problem. However, with Dell, it was a product/hardware tech trying to fix the problem since Dell does not give free support for software. This problem is occurring in both my computers I installed it in. The other computer runs Vista. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Linda

    Dear sainisonu,

    If I use this removal tool, is it going to remove my 'new' norton 2008? And if so, when I reinstall norton 2008, will I have the same problem(s)?

  • MrsRRP Oct 24, 2007

    If I use this removal tool, will it remove my 'new' norton 2008? And if so, when I reinstall norton 2008 won't I have the exact same problem(s)? Thanks

  • MrsRRP Oct 26, 2007

    You are talking to a novice w/computers. I can hook them up, install programs and trouble shoot to solve easy problems. I looked on my norton, I don't see anything blocked as far as outgoing traffic, just in coming. When norton did a remote access, he shut off the worm and spyware protection and still had this problem. I also did a 'cold boot' I think that is what it was called. I went in to start up and disabled the programs norton told me to but problem was still there. As far as outgoing, if norton doesn't recognize the program, it asks for permission. I didn't see anything about fishing filters. I do not want to remove my norton, it's not cheap and I just bought 2, one for each computer. Again, thanks for any help you can provide. Linda

Tip

Re-Create your original NAV2008 non boot CD adding the latest Virus Defintions


This will re-create your original Norton Antivirus Install CD with the latest virus definitions by replacing the bundled 32 and 64 bit versions with the latest. I recommend that you use a CD-RW and update it as often as you can new defintion i32 files come out almost every day

The install requires a valid serial so unless you have one don't bother

You can also download a bootable CD version of NAV2008 to scan your PC if you have a valid serial number is at v1.4.3.38 and contains the definitions for the 29th August 2008 search the internet for NAV RECOVERY x86 SKU 14139706, I use it sometimes however I prefer to use Ghost v14.0 with my Updated Virus Defintions CD.

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3561871-automatically_create_an_update_virus_def


This is also worth a read from the norton website, this descibes how to use the WAIK to update the NRD for 2009 you will need the serial number to make this work as I don't have it I have not done this yet as I have now moved to SKY ISP and I get McAfee for 12mths for free.

http://community.norton.com/norton/attachments/norton/uploads/42/2/MakeNewNRD.pdf

Here is the link for the NRD on their ftp site you must have a valid serial for the NAV2009 to use this so If you don't either buy one or don't its up to you.

NAV cannot connect to the server


Try to access another antivirus website online scanner and 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

Error code 2352


http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/nav.nsf/pfdocs/2003020714354306?Open&docid=2003020714354306&nsf=nav.nsf&view=pfdocs

To run the Microsoft Windows Installer if Norton AntiVirus was installed from the CD
  1. Insert the Norton AntiVirus CD into the CD-ROM drive.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • If the installation program appears, then click Browse the CD
    • If the installation program does not appear, then double-click the My Computer icon on the Windows desktop, and then double-click the CD-ROM drive icon.
  3. Double-click the MSI folder.
  4. Do one of the following:
    • In Windows 98/Me, double-click the WIN9x folder.
    • In Windows 2000/XP, double-click the WINNT folder.
  5. Do one of the following:
    • In Windows 98/Me, double-click the Instmsi.exe file.
    • In Windows 2000/XP, double-click Instmsiw.exe if you have Windows 2000/XP.
  6. In the next dialog box, click Yes.
  7. After the rollback has finished, then reinstall Norton AntiVirus.
    Follow the instruction in Reinstalling your Symantec program after a failed installation or after you see error messages to start the computer without any programs running on startup and then reinstall your Norton program.

If these steps do not fix the problem, then go on to the next section.

To run the Microsoft Windows Installer if Norton AntiVirus was installed from a downloaded version
  1. On the Windows taskbar, click Start > Find (or Search) > Files or Folders.
  2. Ensure that "Look in" is set to the drive where you downloaded Norton AntiVirus, and that "Include subfolders" is checked.
  3. In the "Named" or "Search for..." box, do one of the following:
    • In Windows 98/Me, type the following:

      instmsi.exe
    • In Windows 2000/XP, type the following:

      instmsiw.exe
  4. Click Find Now or Search Now.
    You might see many files with this name. Look for the file with this name that is located in either the Symantec_Norton_AntiVirus_2003 or the your Windows temporary file location depending on your version of Norton AntiVirus.
  5. In the Search Results window, do one of the following, depending on your version of Windows:
    • In Windows 98/Me, double-click Instmsi.exe.
    • In Windows 2000/XP, double-click Instmsiw.exe.
  6. In the next dialog box, click Yes.
    This will undo the changes that were made to your system during the first failed installation.
  7. After the process finishes, then reinstall Norton AntiVirus.
    Follow the instruction in Reinstalling your Symantec program after a failed installation or after you see error messages to start the computer without any programs running on startup and then reinstall your Norton program.

I cant uninstall norton antivirus 2008


Norton Anti-Virus 2008 was made to not be uninstalled. It had integrated itself into your system files preventing Windows Installer from removing the anti-virus machine. Symantec has made this tool available to remove the product. However believe me when I say traces of Norton will remain until the hard-drive is reformatted.

http://service1.symantec.com/Support/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039

Once you remove Norton, I highly recommend you stop using Symantec products and check out ESET's product line of Anti-Virus and online-security tools.
