Security Alert on Windows

I just installed Norton 360 on my lap top and when I click on the installed Norton ICON in my startup taskball I go to Norton Center and it indicates that I do not have Virus Protection. I was under the impression that Norton 360 had a Virus Protection. Am I misinformed? If not I am not sure why Norton Center states I am at risk for a virus.

Re: Security Alert on Windows

Open your norton 360 and then updates by clicking upates menu. it will directly updates your norton to the symantec websites or you cam manually updates downloading the update here : d
After updating restart your system to automatically fixed some errors. If the system still same error just click the balloon on the taskbar and select "i have my antivirus (not probably same word)" something like that. if Finally same error encountered uninstall the norton 360 and again reinstall after rebooting and updates. don't worry about the alert, you know already that you are protected.

How do you reinstall something

  • Hi, if your trying to "Re-install the Norton Security Software, and you had a problem or error while "Installing"; do the following: check the "Firewall," check to see if the Firewall is blocking the "Program" from being downloaded. Next check to see if there is already a "Security" software setup on the computer that is "conflicting with the download / reinstalling. You may need to have someone that have experience in checking theses areas if you have trouble finding them. I'm going to give you direct instruction to go to these areas you need to check. First, click on the "Start Button" when the window open, look in the (right side pane area) find the "Icon, Control Panel, click on it to open. There will be alot of listings, choose the "Security; Allow a program through Windows Firewall." There will be (3) buttons in the "Top" area of the next window, select the "Exception" button, click on the "Add program..." the window will change again, scroll through the "Programs until you find "Norton Security" and "highlight' just click on it, and "Click on the OK button. Restart the computer open the "software" you want to "Install / Reinstall and select to Install; follow all the instructions. Now if there is another security software interfering with the install, you have to go back to the "control Panel again, select to open, in the next window click on the (Programs) "Uninstall a program," find the software (highlight to uninstall), once you are finished, restart the computer; this will fix everything properly, if all goes well. "I hope for the best! Rating the solution is appreciated if you found it helpful, thank you."

MSI System components

If it refers to an MSI System component then it is likely a windows installer problem.
Go to the Windows Installer 4.5 Redistributable download page.

If you are visiting the download page for the first time, near the top of the page you may see a "Validation Recommended" box. If you see this, click the "Continue" link and follow the prompts to get to the actual download page containing the "Files in this Download" section.
Download the Microsoft Windows Installer installation file depending on your version of Windows:

For Windows XP: Download the WindowsXP-KB942288-v3-x86.exe file.

For Windows Vista 32-bit: Download the Windows6.0-KB942288-v2-x86.msu file.
For Windows Vista 64-bit: Download the Windows6.0-KB942288-v2-x64.msu file.

Save the file to the Windows desktop.

Reinstall the Microsoft Windows Installer 1

On the desktop, double-click the file that you have downloaded.
If the User Account Control window appears, click Continue.


Follow the prompts to complete the installation.


Restart the computer.

Reinstall Norton 360

Norton 360 Parental Control upon startup

This problem is being faced by many persons and a proper solution has not been reached as yet. What you can do is uninstall the Add-on pack and wait for the update to appear. What else is there to loose, the annoying uninstall problem or parental control (which is only necessary if you have children).
