Question about Dell Dimension 5100 (D51L1) PC Desktop

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

Cannot manage to load norton security programme

hi there,

although, not specified what you did but i presume 2 actions:

1. Running the program and cannot be completely loaded, it means that there's a program that block your Norton Internet Security 2008 to run, and that might be a Virus or Trojan. or someone is hacking in your pc (might be). and this will happen, if your Norton Internet Security 2008 is not updated and/or you install an internet plug ins in some of your visited website and through that plug ins the website administrator has a link in your pc to access, but not all.

solution: try to uninstall and fresh install your Norton Internet Security 2008 but before you do that make sure that you have a supported docs like cd key and response code from Norton if any, to successfully install your anti virus. and before you install, unplug your connection from internet (install offline, after installation, update it and scan your pc).

2. you install your Norton Internet Security 2008 and cannot be completely loaded, it means that Norton program is corrupted. please have a fresh copy in cd if any and install it.

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.

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.

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.

Norton Antivirus 2008 purchased 4th July 2008 Order No.1644036072 £29.99. Confirmed paid on my Bank Statement.Can't Download. Need help as I keep getting reminders and I am not sure if I am covered.

No, even if you completed the purchase the antivirus is not active yet. You should have received, in the email used for the order, a link to the download, and a registration number.
Download the install program from the link and if required use the reg. number.
If you cannot find the email with the link check in spam mail, and in trash bin.
If you still cannot install the update, proceed from here to contact Symatech regarding your order, tell you cannot find the download, they will send a new one.
After installing the antivirus, you will need to connect to the internet to validate installation.

Antivirus 2008 is an adware program - a form of virus. You should be able to get rid of it using a good antispyware program or something like norton antivirus. If you do not have a program installed I suggest you try using spyware doctor:

That will help remove antivirus 2008. I also suggest you install an antivirus program if you do not already have one. I good free option is AVG antivirus:

Together these programs should help solve your problem and prevent further virus infection.

Hope this helps, good luck!

I've already purchased Norton antivirus 2008 with antispyware and loaded but my screen still blue and shows Warning spyware detected in computer & to install antivirus or spyware wich i did.

That blue screen sounds like a trick to me. Many viruses and spywares or the websites that distribute them make beleive that they are causing viruses then provide links to fake antivirus and spyware removal programs that actually make your system worst.

Use the Norton to purchased to do a full deep scan of your system. I also like to supplement my Norton by running the free scan at when I suspect there might be a problem on my machine that Norton can't fix.
