Re: Inbound server defect (NORTON ANTIVIRUS admit it is...

Good day Martin!
Yes! There is something good that you can use. It's called AVG and it's free.
You can set it up to run at the time of day that you wish and to get updates automatically.
I found this because of going through a similar situation. Plus, the Norton just wasn't as effective in finding viruses as AVG seems to be.
For malware, I recommend AdAware, which is a another free, and excellent program. The downside of the free edition of AdAware is that you can't schedule it to run on a regular basis. You have to remember to run it every so often.

How do I find dns or server for my sylvania netbook

Well, assuming you have your netbook connected to the internet, go to start/run/ if running winXP, or if your running vista or 7 click start then enter cmd in the search box. If running XP after clicking start/run/ enter cmd then enter. A command prompt will open up. type ipconfig /all then hit enter, and it will give you a list of numbers, including your ISP's DNS servers. There should be 2 unless you are connected through a wireless router.

Resolving 169.x.x.x IP address problems.

This article outlines methods of resolving issues with a 169.x.x.x IP address. This address results from a built in feature of windows called automatic private IP address(APIPA). When your computer is unable to find a DHCP server the APIPA service will assign itself a 169.x.x.x IP address. According to Microsoft, the APIPA service checks for a DHCP server every five minutes.
Releasing the IP address
1. Click on Start and click Run.
2. Inside Run, type ipconfig /release to release the IP address.
3. Then after the IP address is released, type ipconfig /renew

Disabling the Ethernet Adapter
1. Click on Start and right click on My Computer. Then click on Manage.
2. Click on Device Manager and then Network Adapters
3. Under Network Adapters, right click on your Ethernet adapter and select Disable.
4. Wait approximately 5 seconds and right click on it and click Re-enable.
5. This restarts the DHCP client and tries to obtain an IP address from the Network.

Check the Ethernet cable
Sometimes a bad Ethernet cable can cause your system to receive a 169 IP address, try changing out the cable for a new one.
Disable antivirus and firewall applications
Disable/uninstall any external firewall, antivirus, or spyware programs (eg. Norton Internet Security, McAfee Security Center, Trend Micro 2007, Webroot).
Restarting the QoS packet scheduler Protocol
1. Click on Start and click Control Panel.
2. In Control Panel, double click on Network Connections and then Local Area Connection.
3. Click on Properties and uncheck QoS Packet Scheduler.
4. Click Ok and repeat the process.

Restarting the DHCP service
1. Click Start and select Run.
2. Type services.msc in Run and click Ok.
3. Find DHCP service and right click on it. Click on Stop.
4. Reboot the computer.
5. When the computer boots up, click Start and select Run
6. Inside Run, type the following: netsh int ip reset log.txt
7. Click Ok.

System Restore
1. Open Start and click on Programs and then Accessories.
2. Then click on System Tools.
3. Click on System Restore and select a restore point when you were not experiencing this problem.
4. Restore your system

Very slow to boot

That's a sign of too many applications loading at startup. Click on RUN and type MSCONFIG / STARTUP tab. Uncheck any items like photo software etc. that don't need to run at startup. Also if you're running Norton antivirus or any other Norton products, loose them. They're resource hogs.

Hope this Helped!

Replacing Norton with anything else

Norton is a real pain, and can be a bigger pain to get rid of. First, go to and download CCleaner, and also download AVG, but save the AVG download to the desktop. After removing Norton you will be using AVG for your antivirus. Once you have the CCleaner installed, open the tools section on the left. This is an uninstaller, it works considerably better than the add/remove programs section of Windows. Remove anything that reads Norton. This is where it may get tricky, Norton has a couple of blocking programs built in that try to keep you from using another antivirus, or removing Norton. So, the uninstall may run the first try, or you may get a message to the effect of the updater is running. If you get this message, then you will need to open Norton, go into the settings, and turn off everything. Then try the uninstall again. Once you've uninstalled all Norton related programs, run the registry cleaner. Norton likes to leave a little blocker in the registry that prevents the install of other antiviruses. Noe that this is done, you're ready to install the AVG. NOTE at one point there will be a section that will install the AVG internet toolbar, uncheck this box, you don't need it, and once it's installed you can't remove it without removing and reinstalling AVG. Some finer points about AVG is very little maintenance,it updates automatically, will scan at a time preset by you, so as to not hinder your use at the time of the scan, it protects against spyware and adware along with the antivirus, and has real time internet security without using hardly any resources. I believe you will be happy with it. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.
