Quite likely.. A lot of my clients have tons of trouble with this damned Norton... I simply hate it now... I get so many problems caused by it that I simply rip it off and use ANYTHING else... But in saying that... Umm.. well.... Symantec (Norton) Corporate Antivirus is simply marvelous... Go Figure... This is what I usually replace it with. But there are other AV's that work well.

Tying to install kaspersky anti virus programme.its coming up to remove norton anti virus which ive removed all norton programmes but its still saying remove norton virurs


If you did a reboot then it should be gone however; Norton is notorious for not removing all of its little registry stragglers after uninstall. They have a program that will go in and grab the remnants.

Please see

Tip

Do you have Norton Anti-Virus on your PC.


8 out of 10 computers have Norton Anti-Virus installed on their PC. Or you getting message to tell you to update your subscription? If so read on.

Have you notice that your PC is slowing down, or you getting blue screens, is your PC slow to boot, those your PC shutdown really slow. Are you getting pop-ups stating that your PC is infected. These are all symptoms of an out of date Norton Ant-Virus subscription. Even if you have have a current Norton Anti-Virus subscription you may still be infected.

OK, so here is how to fix your PC. First if you do not want to use Norton Anti-Virus anymore you need to remove it. You need to remove it from the control panel add/remove programs. You also need to get the Norton removal tool from Symantec, which makes Norton Anti-Virus. Watch my video from more details. Click here

So now your PC should be running better than before. Remember once Norton Anti-Virus is removed you need to scan it for viruses and then protect it. I recommend and personal use Avast, it is Free for home users and it simply works. Avast does not slow down your computer and it updates everyday with a visual and audio indicators. What more could you ask for. I use Malwarebyte's Anti-Mal ware on-line protection in conjunction with Avast for total protection. You can get that here. Try the free version first and it will get all those infections that Norton Anti-Virus failed to protect. Then upgrade to the Pro version if you need it. Here is the site http://www.malwarebytes.org/.

So now your PC is virus free and protected. What else can you do. I would get Ccleaner from www.ccleaner.com, this is also a free utility that I use. It removes all those temp files and other junk that is slowing down your PC. I do not recommend any registry programs. If you have any those on your PC. You need to remove them, they do not work.

The last thing you need to get is to de-frag your hard drive. I use this one. It is also Free so get it. Click here.

So now you are done and your PC should be a lot faster and better. However if you are still having issues you need to reload your whole operating system. Most people do not have the original CD so you will have to get a professional to do this. If you need help with that you can visit my site at www.adjustservices.com.

I hope this tip was helpful.

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

My Norton anti virus has stopped working and will not activate


Bro, my suggestion is, you uninstall you Norton Anti-virus including the Symantec folder installation then install one that is free but can still perform as good as Norton. I am not saying NOrton Anti-Virus is a bad program but, it is systemic and slows down your computer a bit. Norton is a great product everybody kows that !!!! What i can share with you is that, try downloading AVG free or AVAST home edition for which, if you are connected to your net, they regularly send updates to your computer as long as you are registered and your key is up to date. If your Norton Anti-virus is notactivating, it only means one thing, it's not updated.

HELP!!! Computer stopped working when anit-virus was installed?????


Assuming you are using windows xp. 1. Boot up into windows safe mode by pressing the "F8" key during boot process. 2. Choose "Safe Mode without networking" on the menu and after entering your desktop a pop-up will appear telling you that you are using windows safe mode, just press "OK" then uninstall Norton Anti-Virus. 3. Shut-down and/or reboot computer. Another alternative would be to boot into safe mode and perform a system restore. If you choose to do this, you still need to uninstall Norton Anti-Virus because a system restore will only fix just system files not programs that were installed. In other words, you will have a partial installation of Norton Anti-Virus in your computer. As to why this happened, could be a compatability issue with the use of Norton and some other program. Good luck.
