I continually get a pop-up from a company called Personal AntiVirus. The pop-up says: You have critical systems viruses. When I run my Norton 360 scan, it shows no viruses. How do I get rid of this pop-up?

hello kushlend r!!
If you can afford Kaspersky Internet Security is Best. it is costly but very good.
but if you want free ANTIVIRUS then you can use "Avira Personal". it is enough good to get rid of most of malwares, trojans and viruses.
Here is the link for downloading Avira personal ---->

This can be resolved by installing and scanning the computer using Norton 360.

Click here to download Norton 360 version 3.0

After downloading Norton 360 double click on the installation file and follow on screen instruction to install the file.
Click on skip if it ask for product key.
After installing Norton 360 open Norton 360 and click on live Update to download latest virus definition on to your computer. This will helps norton to find and heal the up to date virus.

After running live update perform complete system scan using Norton.

Note:
  • Uninstall existing Antivirus on your computer before installing Norton 360.
  • Your system performance will be little low for about 7 to 10 days after installing Norton, after this period it will become Normal.
  • This is trial version which will provide you 30 days validity but even 1 year subscription does the same task. You can install whatever antivirus if you wish to switch over.

I don't quite understand the cause of your problem... You say "..this Personal Antivirus claims...". Are you saying that you bought and installed some antivirus software that's telling you that you have viruses?

If that's the case, and you've run Norton and other reputable antivirus programs and they tell you there's not a problem, I would uninstall the offending program and hope for the best.

There are some unscrupulous people out there out to get your dime if you let them, and use this kind of scare tactics to extract money from naive users. If you actually paid money for this software and it's pestering you, I would report them to the BBB in your town.

Now, there are other viruses that you may have picked up while visiting some infected web sites, or from infected attachments that behave in a similar way, and they are very stealthy in how they run and avoid detection and removal. You may need professional help to remove them from your PC.
That's my best advice in this particular case.
Good luck!

Good day.

It's a worm infection often contracted through file sharing. I suggest you use the free versions of these two tools and let them remove anything they find.

Once clean make sure that your machine is totally up to date with both critical and non-critical updates from Microsoft.

Cannot activate norton 360


Hi Uptonmark,

I have come across this problem on a norton 360 antivirus solution before. It would also get pretty complicated if you're using vista. However, one of the first things you should do when using any antivirus is to tell the windows OS (be it vista or XP), that your anti virus is taking over the firewall + antivirus activities of the computer. So, what you might wanna do is:

1. Launch norton 360 and check to see if your outbond traffic is being blocked. Your outbound traffic to connect to the server should NOT be blocked and sometimes in 360, it is blocked by defualt.

2. Go to the control panel. Under security, define norton 360 as your firewall and anti virus. If you can afford it, disable windows firewall (since norton 360 is taking care of that problem).

3. After these settings, restart computer (for any process changes to take effect) and try to connect and see.

Hope the above suggestions help. Also, when defining your whitelist (a list of programs that are allowed to traffic in and out through your firewall), try to allow as much as programs possible (those that you deem important enough(, to prevent such an incident like this from ever happening again. Or you could take the route that i took... get bitdefender. Less complicated and more advanced security options. Norton 360 is good too, but for my personal computer, i;d stick with bitdefender any day. Hope the above helps. Let me know if the suggestions work out, else i can instruct in more detail. Thanks.

Regards,

Techomancer.

i understand u r problem..

norton anti-virus is one of the most powerful anti-virus..
it takes lot of memory...
after installing norton u r system may be slow.. but it depends on u r system configaration.

if u r system already contains virus before installing norton .
then what you have to do is right click on my computer icon and start scaning with norton . then i maximum try to clean the virus .

if it does not did so then i will tell u another solution..

Norton 360 has the entire norton protection suite built into it. On top of the firewall, phishing protection, and e-mail protection it also has norton antivirus built right into it. So yes, you have to uninstall antivirus to install 360, but 360 just installs antivirus again. If you ever decide to go back to using just antivirus you can simply redownload it off their web site.
