I purchased this computer, 2 gig memory last year. I had just put in Norton and it is running SUPER slow. How can I reset this computer to run normal? This is not the laptop


I have known several people who have had similar issues with norton, It seems to be quite resource hungry, if you really want to keep norton then I would suggest a RAM upgrade to give your machine more power, alternatively, you could try another antivirus, I use Microsoft Security Essentials and it works well for me.

However, check to see if norton is running a system scan, this will almost definately make your machine run slower.

Hi,

You don't have to worry about the attack being transferred to the new computer because they will both have a different IP address.

Providing you protect your computer with a good antivirus software like you are already using then you should be fine although no computer is 100% safe from attacks and viruses.

Norton 360 provides decent internet security plus some attacks are dependant on the site you visit. It's all about being vigilant and protecting your computer the best you can.

Regards.

DOES NORTON MAKE A COMPUTER SLOW MY COMPUTRER IS REALLY SLOW AND SOMEONE TOLD ME THAT IS ONE OF THE REASONS AND TO USE A DIFFERENT SECURITY AND SOME ONE ELSE SAID TO CHANGE MY BROSER DON'T KNOW HOW TO DO...


You are caught between a rock and a hard place.

Norton, and ALL security software use a fair amount of resources. They are there to protect you.

You cannot expect a good and constant monitoring program to be light, unless you use a low quality security program that is near useless.

I wish these programs were also smaller, but with today's severe threats, we need severe protection.

Please put up with Norton or you may download free security programs which are excellent from this link: -

Unable to open live TV in HP PC Media Center


Look at the alerts in the security and firewall of Norton antivirus. It might be blocking it. also keep an eye on your bottom right corner when you attempt the live TV. Norton may be alerting you about the blocks in that area. Make sure you allow those connections. I would check Norton firewall and security before messing with the Windows firewall.

Have a 3 use norton security just replaced one broken down computer which has now got vista can i still put on my norton security that I have paid for. We had 3 xp now we have 2 xp and 1 vista


Hi! I presume you a referring to Norton 360? if so it covers 3 pc's I have used mine on all 3 and registered it on a fourth when the lap top decided to blow its mind. I have heard if you try to register 360 too many times you will be locked out obviously due to pirate copiers out there, and Too right! we buy genuine so should everyone.
Hope this helps?

Cannot manage to load norton security programme


hi there,

although, not specified what you did but i presume 2 actions:

1. Running the program and cannot be completely loaded, it means that there's a program that block your Norton Internet Security 2008 to run, and that might be a Virus or Trojan. or someone is hacking in your pc (might be). and this will happen, if your Norton Internet Security 2008 is not updated and/or you install an internet plug ins in some of your visited website and through that plug ins the website administrator has a link in your pc to access, but not all.

solution: try to uninstall and fresh install your Norton Internet Security 2008 but before you do that make sure that you have a supported docs like cd key and response code from Norton if any, to successfully install your anti virus. and before you install, unplug your connection from internet (install offline, after installation, update it and scan your pc).

2. you install your Norton Internet Security 2008 and cannot be completely loaded, it means that Norton program is corrupted. please have a fresh copy in cd if any and install it.

I can access the WEB but download email. I receive a page that identifies a service problem & provides an error code:COFE1700.


someone I know had this problem. Apparently this is a security issue. We tried everything and nothing worked, getting new browser, deleting cookies, change password. Apparently the problem was Norton. The cofe1700 error code dissapear after we updated to the newest version of norton.
Thats why I don't use norton protects your computer but gives you other kind of headaches. i hope this solves the error code:COFE1700 for everyone.

maybe your norton is configured on a high security state. you better configure it as minimal security state. by browsing and reading whats inside your norton, you could find the things you have to adjust to enable some services of your PC.
