Re: norton 360

Get rid of norton!!! use AVG free instead. free download from thier website. our computers have been working well with this antivirus software.

Norton is a resource hog and has caused us and others multiple headaches.

Re: norton 360

Hi Sheba,

Yes you can load norton 360 on your new pc. If you have all the license codes, just remove the trial version from your new pc and installed the full version of 360. To uninstall you can either go to control panel -> add remove programs and select the nortan trial software. Or you can find an installation's link under the program list. Hope this helps.

Hi! I presume you a referring to Norton 360? if so it covers 3 pc's I have used mine on all 3 and registered it on a fourth when the lap top decided to blow its mind. I have heard if you try to register 360 too many times you will be locked out obviously due to pirate copiers out there, and Too right! we buy genuine so should everyone.
Hope this helps?

I purose Norton 360 02 and I am having trouble installing it on my computer. When I use teh CD it begins to install the program and the stops saying it can't a file, something like msi. I don't know...


I would suggest removing ALL detected Norton and Symantec products with the Norton Removal Tool for Norton 360 found here.

After the uninstall of all Norton and Symantec programs you will also want to download the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility found here. The download link is at the bottom of the More Information section,

After the utility is installed and ran you will want to remove all Norton and Symantec programs listed in the removal list.

After you remove the programs and restart you should be able to reinstall the Norton 360 program.

I hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

firstly, edit your question above and remove your product key, as this could cause you trouble down the road more and people see it, copy it down and then stasrt using copies of this program for free using your product key. Secondly, Norton support will be able send you the file again so that you can complete the process.

just an advice... norton has been having many issues most specially on updates that will knock off your internet connection. best practice is try to contact norton for proper resolution of problem. and also try to put your autoupdates into manual so that you will be able to identify which update cause your computer to crash and you can easily do a system restore

Hello kellywhalin

First, welcome to the great big world of computing. It's really amazing out here. There's lots to learn so be patient w/ yourself and enjoy the ride.


You can find Symantec's (they're the manufacturer of Norton 360) article on this issue HERE.

I'm not sure, however, if this addresses a restore of data, etc. that was backed up to an online service.

I think it would be much safer for you to speak w/ a Symantec representative regarding restoring your data that was backed up to their online data storage.

We want to make sure that you don't accidentally restore files to locations on your hard disk that will usurp current system files, etc. and cause your system to crash ("wig out").

Please, go HERE for Symantec's free online chat service and speak w/ a support representative there.

Be sure to post back here to follow up w/ us and let us know what happened and if your problem was resolved, etc.

** Please, don't assign a rating to any of
** the experts' recommendations until your
** problem has been resolved or diagnosed.
** Once ratings are assigned, the problem
** will be closed and we won't be able to
** continue to assist you. We WILL keep
** working w/ you until your problem is re-
** solved or diagnosed.

Thank you,
BJ @:)
