Norton Intenet Security 2009 after installation issue "Sec Risk"

After installation Norton told me there was a security risk and it needed to restart windows in order to fix the risk. I click on "Yes restart now" the computer restarts but shortly after it pops up again asking me to restart due to a security risk. I ran several full system scans which turned up 0 security risks.

It may be a false positive. Sometimes a system file gets tagged as a risk, which upon removal by norton, is automatically re-created by "windows system file protection".

Get as much details about the risk, such as file name, google it and if safe, add to norton's exclusion list.

NORTON INTERNET SECURITY 2011 just installed from CD. All seems ok but... When I switch on the computer I get the speech bubble saying "automatic updates is turned off. Click here to fix the problem....


Hi,

I think you are confusing the Windows Update with the Norton Automatic update.

Please open your Norton product and see if the status is at "Secure" on the top of the program.
If it is secure with a green mark, you need not worry.

If it shows at "Risk", do the following steps:
Check if the Windows update is turned on or off.
Check if the computer's date and time is running correctly
If the problem still persist, reinstalling the Norton program will definitely fix the issue

To reinstall we need to first download the setup file from the link www.norton.com/nis11, which will download the latest version of Norton Internet Security.

Double click the downloaded file and that will remove the existing version and install the latest version.


Regards,
Muhaim

You will need to cancel your Norton subscription and use one of their products that is suitable for Vista. May I suggest that you purchase Norton Internet security 2009 for a single payment of about 70 dollars.

Are norton security says that are security status is at risk.tried fix now a few times,doesnt work.says spyware defs at risk.virus spyware scan at risk.protection updates at risk.please help


In my experience Norton can become flakey at times. Make sure your subscription to norton has not expired. Otherwise try un-installing norton and re-installing it. Part of it may have become corrupted.
