Norton is very bad for false positives. 2005 is way out of date anyways. My suggestion: use Firefox, Avas Antivirus and Komodo firewall. That combination makes web browsing very safe. When Norton is uninstalled,  there seems to be a huge weight lifted off your system.

I am using skype i can see my partner but he cannot see me!! it keeps telling me that they cant detect a web cam even though my webcam is built into my computer.


Start up Skype and click Options under the Tools tab. Click on Video settings. Skype should then start the built-in webcam's video and you should see yourself in the window. Be sure that the radio button is on to Show that I have video to... people in my Contact list only. If instead, the radio button is on for no one, then no one will see that you have any video capability. If you have made any changes, be sure to click the Save button at the bottom right of the Skype options window. Finally, be sure that your partner is in your Skype's Contact List.

How Norton Anti-virus software work


<p>First you have to install any one anti-virus software and make it ready with online update, and then scan your computer with that anti-virus software. Reliable anti-virus software features a scanner equipped with the technology required to detect and eradicate viruses, worms and other members of the malware family.<br /> <p> <br> <p>Viruses have many strategies to infect your computer, like avoiding detection from protection software. To prevent these virus strategies and protect your computer anti-virus software also has some methods, like Norton anti-virus use Signature base and Heuristics-base detection. Signature based detection includes searching for knowing structure within executable code, however your computer can be infected with most new virus which signature is not known. In that case heuristics method can be used. It can identify new viruses by variation of such code, in files.<br> <p> <br> <p>Norton anti-virus has many other features, which it upgrades from version to version, like Sonar protection. SONAR examines the behaviour of applications to decide whether they are malicious. Various things are checked such as if the program create a desktop shortcut or create add/remove programs entry before determining the program is malicious. Another feature is Norton insight. It is a program that comes with the Norton 360. It improves the speed and quality of computer scan. It identifies well known files of client machine and excludes them from constant monitoring and scanning. It only scans unknown and unsecured files. Skipping the already known files helps the scan more impact. Symantec antivirus can interaction with rogue software, actually these type of software are nothing but a misleading program, it always rebranded and cloned of its previous version.<br> <p> <br> <p>Many other anti-viruses have features like anti-virus, anti-malware, anti-spyware which is used to detect and remove viruses from your computer, whenever you scan your pc with this anti-virus software.

Laptop infected with worm? Help


No virus checker catches them all, and frankly, Norton 360 is pretty weak. Try running AVG, which is downloadable and free.

Unable to remove all legacy symantec information in registry


When I see and hear the word symantic I know thats Norton. Norton is notorious for detecting virus that isn't there and refusing to let you uninstall it. What I did is down load a software called your uninstaller, I installed it, and even though your symantic is not listed in your control panel for uninstalling, this software is outstanding and will find it. it even goes into your system files and registry and finds any remnants of the program and completely destroys it. In your search window type in Uruninstall, I think thats the name. Or just plain your uninstall. Its been awhile but its wonderful. I never installed Norton again. Good Luck.

Norton failed to detect worm.win32.netsky. My computer is infected with the virus and I need help. Patti


Hello Patti,

First, you need to update the Norton with the latest virus definitions and perform a scan again. It may detect the virus and remove it.

If it does not, we need to format the hard drive of the computer and reinstall the operating system as it is the most effective way to get rid of the virus.

Wish you good luck

Pat
