My computer got wiped out including my phillips mp3 player info, now it wont reload the cd,how do I fix it? my norton says it's got a trogen virus in it.


In order to install your media player, you need to remove norton. The disk does not have a trojan virus in it. This is a common warning for Norton and it says the same thing for TurboTax software if you try and install the desktop version.

Go to your control panel and find programs & installations. Then remove both parts of norton antivirus software and reboot your pc.

Make sure you remove live updates and both parts of the anti virus software or you will be wasting your time.

Then try and install your drivers for the media player. Once installed, reboot your pc again and reinstall Norton if you wish to keep it as your choice for anti virus software.

I can't install my norton antivirus...


Try running a free program like malware bytes first before you try to install norton. Sometimes viruses will disable the anti-virus installation when they see them running. For really really bad viruses that wont let you remove them a reformat or restore may be necessary.

Norton 360


i understand u r problem..

norton anti-virus is one of the most powerful anti-virus..
it takes lot of memory...
after installing norton u r system may be slow.. but it depends on u r system configaration.

if u r system already contains virus before installing norton .
then what you have to do is right click on my computer icon and start scaning with norton . then i maximum try to clean the virus .

if it does not did so then i will tell u another solution..

Ok then i guess you should try repairing the NORTON by running the installation again and choosing the reapir option or the next option is to use another anti virus.

you can visit www.avast.com/eng/programs.html and download avast! 4 home edition free edition.
please restart your pc before installing the avast.
after installing try updating and schedule a boot scan by
  1. cutting and pasting this "W62911071H4800A1106-PJY5XRR5" when prompted for the registration key.
  2. click on the menu icon at the top left of the avast window.
  3. click on "schedule a boot scan" and restart your pc

Good luck !!
