"deleting" Norton does not fully erase the problems Norton can cause. For this, Symantec supplies a "Norton removal tool" on their website - of course you will need another computer to get the file and make sure to get the removal tool for your version. It is such a handy tool and I so dislike Norton that I keep a copy on my flash drive. Run it and Norton will be almost completely removed - there will still be some useless directories but it should fix your problems. You may have to reinstall your IP protocol but I doubt it - it's usually a Norton thing.

Virus on pc. installed norton internet security.


Never before have I heard of a VIRUS installing ANTI-VIRUS software. I have had intermittent mouse problems before though. Thought it was a virus, as I interchanged with like 4 other (used) mouses (mice?) and there was no change. Found a fifth used mouse-a genuine Microsoft mouse (I was running Vista 64bit Home Premium) and installed it and my mouse problem disappeared ("installing new device"). I couldn't figure it out for the longest time, (still can't), I'm just glad it cleared up.
I run AVG FREE antivirus software and Ad-Aware anti-spyware (also FREE). I run both of those at least once a week, in addition to defragmenting once a week, haven't had a problem since.

I need to reinstall norton anti virus 2009. I have a subscription until Oct 2010


What anti-virus were you using? Or have you just deleted the software ? You should always do a clean install of all software and make sure you have no anti-virus on the system before you install norton.
1.go to start
2.control panel
3.add and remove programs
4. make sure all anti-virus programs are un-installed
5. if norton is by chance on the system you will need to go to their site and dowload the norton removal tool so you don't have any conflicks.
6.If you have a disk , insert it now and follow the prompts
7. if you purchased this online then you will need your e-mail address and password ( if you've forgotten they will e-mail it to you ) and install fron the online site .

How i install the symantec norton anti virus for one year?


You can connect to symantec online and purchase it that way, because they will also give you a file to down load in order to take your current one off of trial account.
If I were you, I would much rather download comodo.com and use that internet security suite. it is free, it updates automatically and offers a more secure experience for the end user.

Do I need a Norton-type security for my laptop, or is AVG sufficient ?


Hi,
AVG is more than sufficient for a home computer.
Norton takes quite a lot of system resources and slows computers down dramatically. AVG on the other hand uses 2/3rds less resources than Norton and is just as good.


Reagrds.

Norton Anti-virus will not launch


If you have access to another computer download avast anti-virus and malwarebytes anti-malware and burn to cd or use a flash drive. Malwarebytes will remove that PC Defender rouge anti-virus software and any other malware you may have,

If you don't have another computer you can download the files to try booting into safe mode with networking. This option should allow you to download and install the programs above,

If your able to download them run anti-malware first. Let t fix what it can. Then install avast anti-virus, when asked if you want to schedule a boot time scan say yes, then when asked to reboot say no and open avast and update it, When prompted to reboot do so.

Hope this helps

Installing norton anti-virus without internet connection


Yes it is possible.
To install full version you need either to purchase a disk or to purchase the download from Symantech.

If you have purchased the download or if you want to install the trial version download, just copy the install file onto an usb memory stick.

Plug the memory stick with norton install file onto your computer with no internet and run the installer from usb stick.

This will install norton with no need for the Internet.

If you buy nortom full version you may need to validate installation by phone, but that is not complicate.

You can download Norton from one of the websites below:

Norton AntiVirus for Windows 2000/XP/Vista

Norton AntiVirus 2009 - Free software downloads
