Why are you using anti virus on a mac? Its not like the PC computers out there, 2006, the first virus for a mac was discovered, the PC's they have millions of viruses - so the need for anti virus, but macs, the viruses are so uncommon.

First ever virus for Mac OS X discovered 2006!!
http://www.sophos.com/pressoffice/news/articles/2006/02/macosxleap.html

The virus infected some 49 macs world wide. ! only 49 !

Mac Security 2008!
http://www.macworld.com/article/135900/2008/10/antivirus.html

from the above linked page:

""
Our Advice No matter which operating system you use, there will always be people out there trying to make a fast buck by exploiting known bugs, system vulnerabilities, or lax users. I advise spending your money not on Mac antivirus software but on a good phishing-protection application; at the very least, consider using a browser that offers built-in phishing protection. Your Mac’s file system is probably safe from malicious hackers, but your identity may not be.""

Just remove the norton and stop paying for it. your safer then most of the people in the world, just by owning a mac and using it instead of a pc.

There are maybe a hand full of viruses ever written by people for the macs. They are all human made and they don't pop up by themselves.

Honestly this is the first time I actually hear or read about someone using a antivirus software on a mac.

Why in the world are you running Norton on a Mac Snow Leopard OSx? You do not need it, and even if you did need virus protection which you don't, Norton should be your last choice. There has never been a real world virus released for the Mac OSx, so you are wasting computer resources and money. Uninstall Norton and forget it.

Always showing antivirus and antyspyware protection definitions are out of date after running liveupdate or clicking fix button.


This is a job for Symantec support - they get paid to fix these problems for you.
they're at http://us.norton.com/support/dtree.jsp
The problem you're experiencing is coming from the Norton software itself, and so
should be solved by a Norton Software expert.

My auto protect wont stay on, i turn it on and restart my p.c and after a couple of minuets it turns of. and displays "Browsing not safe:auto protect off" at the top of my browser.


try to run your liveupdate then restart your pc. if this still happens, try to download intelligent updater here.

look for the one that is compatible with your norton and after downloading it, run it and then restart your computer. this should fix your problem.

When you attempt to install the PhotoMAX software from your CD-ROM drive, you may receive the following error message: "ISSET_SE caused a general protection fault in module (FILENAME) at (ADDRESS) where (FILENAME) is the name of the program file you are trying to run, and (ADDRESS) is the memory address at which the error occurs."
