I would recommend losing norton. Norton is one of the most widely used anti-virus's today. They are easily hacked around and dont really pick up everything on your system. I would tell you to go with AVG. It is a free-ware anti-virus and you can also upgrade for a price. I have never had a problem with the free one. When I was the co-owner for a computer IT company, I would suggest AVG to everyone because it works the best that I have seen. Here is the link if you would like to read up more on AVG:

Also if you are interested in switching I have come up with a step by step for you to remove norton from your system:

  1. Navigate to your "Control Panel" and click on the "Add or Remove Programs" icon.
  2. Scroll down to Norton Antivirus in the text list once the full list has populated.
  3. Highlight Norton Antivirus by clicking once on the text line. This should expand the listing and you will see a "Remove" button.
  4. Click on the "Remove" button and then on "OK" when the system asks if you are sure. Restart your computer, if prompted, after the process is complete.
  5. Navigate to your "Program Files" folder by clicking on "My Computer" and then the "C:" drive.
  6. Locate the Symantec folder. This may be under the main "Program Files" folder or under "Common Files." Right-click on the folder and select "Delete."
  7. Click the "Start" button on your desktop and select "Run" from the menu.
  8. Type "regedit" in the text box. Do not include the quotation marks.
  9. Create a backup of the registry files by clicking on "Files" and then "Export" from the text menu. Give the exported file a name that will identify it as a recent registry backup.
  10. Click on "Edit" from the text menu and then click on "Find."
  11. Type "Symantec" into the text box on the "Find" menu.
  12. Delete each instance of Symantec found in the registry by right-clicking on the line and choosing "Delete."
  13. Restart your computer. All traces of Norton Antivirus are now removed from your system.

Best to contact Symantec directly in your country and ask for sales support who can sort this out for you.

My hpg62 is slow and keeps locking


Give us more details if you really want help. What do you mean by Google and Documents quit working? What happens if you try to open your internet browser? What happens when you try to open a document?

You most likely have some type of virus infection. And if when you click on an application such as Word, Notepad, Internet Explorer, etc. you get a screen that pops up asking you which program would you like to use to open it, then your Program/File Associations has been changed by the virus.

A slow system is definitely a sign of a virus infection. Now McAfee and Norton will slow you to a crawl if you let your subscription expire and not renew it. So it's best to remove them (uninstall) if the subscription has expired and you don't plan on renewing it.

Message says my subscription has expired? I purchased Internet Security from Nortons on 12/7/07 why has it expired? It appars I am no longer protected and do not understand why this is.


Most of the Norton antivirus comes with one year subscription. date u mentioned here seems like more then 1 year old. That's why it says expired
If you dont want to spend any more money on antivirus then uninstall this one and download AVG from this site. this is really good antivirus for free and good for ever.

Norton renewal subscription


the problem lies in the registry uninstall norton 360 then re-install this clears the reg then try your key again.

my personal View Don't use norton 360 as it will slow your system down use Kespersky Internet security this is the best one out and also use avg virus program when you switch to kaspesky internet security then remove avg which you can get a free version.

Mp3 will not play songs or radio


You have to keep your music service subscription up to date, or it will give you that message as soon as the subscription expires. I convert all of my songs to mp3 format, so I never get that message.

Sync notice


Yes I solved the problem..I contacted Rhapsody and they told me my 30 day period had been expired and I needed to renew my subscription which would be $14.99/mo. All the songs that I downloaded onto my mp3 I thought I would automatically get after the 30 day period was over...guess not!
