You don't have to necessarily do anything to activate any Norton product. Once the product or program has been installed or downloaded to your computer, it is an automatic process ending in a request that you register with Norton and you do so by providing your e-mail and possibly your product key. Once it has finished installing, the anti-virus protection is then working to safeguard your computer.

A Brief History of Norton Anti-virus


Norton anti-virus is a product of Symantec Corporation. Norton anti-virus helps you to remove viruses and malicious codes from your computer, it also protect you from online threats. Symantec programmed and launched various versions of Norton anti-virus to protect your pc and Internet Security to secure your online activities from hackers.

As per history of Norton products, it's about 25 years before Norton antivirus came on the market. The name of the first Norton anti-virus was Norton Commander, released in the year 1986, served as a standard interface for DOS. This version of Norton was invented to protect DOS from malicious programs. Norton Commander was a prototypical orthodox file manager, written by John Socha and released by Peter Norton.


Norton Commander is considered easy to use based on its constant view of two file manipulation objects at once. After starting the program the user sees two panels with file lists. Each panel can be easily configured to show information about the other panel, a directory tree, or a number of other options.


When Symantec acquired Peter Norton Computing from Peter Norton, Norton starts to develop various utilities or applications for DOS, as well as for Windows. Product activation was introduced in Norton anti-virus 2004. Spyware and adware detection and removal tool was introduced to the 2005 version. The redesign main graphical user interface and homepage hijacking protection was released with 2006 version of Norton anti-virus. With the version of 2007 windows 2000 compatibility was dropped and Vista compatibility was introduced, with anti-rootkit technology. Version 2009 and 2010 released with Sonar protection, File Insight, and rogue security software tools. The latest version of Norton anti-virus is 2011, which protect your computer being infected from facebook wall and feed.

Run the Norton Removal Tool to remove your Norton Anti Virus:

Norton Removal Tool

And then install Norton Anti Virus 2011 and activate it with your 2008 Product Key:

When you say you have problems with a lot of Virus then install in safe mode and do there a full scan.

I think you are having the problem with schedule scanning

Create a new task in Control panel and add the Nav file to the scan and schedule the time

If you are unable to run the Quick scan or comprehensive scan
Download and run the free upgrade Norton Anti virus 2010
you can activate Nav10 with your existing product key

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.

Norton anti-virus


YES IMHO, GET RID OF NORTON! IT IS YOUR MAIN PROBLEM! I HAVE NEVER LIKED NORTON AND HAVE HAD MORE PROBLEMS WITH NORTON THAN ANY OTHER VIRUS SOFTWARE PRODUCTS COMBINED! I DO THIS ON AN EXPERT LEVEL AND HAVE TAUGHT COMPUTER I.T. AND THIS PRODUCT WILL CAUSE HAVOC WITH YOUR COMPUTER BY BLOCKING PROGRAMS YOU WANT TO USE AND PROGRAMS YOU WANT TO DOWNLOAD. HAVE YOU THOUGHT OF USING AVG? IT IS A STRONG PROGRAM AND FREE TO USE AND NOT A PAIN TO USE AND HAS EVERY BIT AS MANY FEATURES AS NORTON. THIS IS JUST MY PERSONNAL OPINION, BUT I THINK YOU WILL HAVE A MUCH EASIER LIFE WITHOUT NORTON. IF I CAN HELP FURTHER JUST REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217

My Norton anti virus has stopped working and will not activate


Bro, my suggestion is, you uninstall you Norton Anti-virus including the Symantec folder installation then install one that is free but can still perform as good as Norton. I am not saying NOrton Anti-Virus is a bad program but, it is systemic and slows down your computer a bit. Norton is a great product everybody kows that !!!! What i can share with you is that, try downloading AVG free or AVAST home edition for which, if you are connected to your net, they regularly send updates to your computer as long as you are registered and your key is up to date. If your Norton Anti-virus is notactivating, it only means one thing, it's not updated.
