Question about Symantec Norton AntiVirus 2004 - (Open Box) for PC

3 Answers

My antivirus seems to be working against me!!!

I play a lot of games online, but yesterday when I tried to play a game my antivirus blocked it. So, like I have done in the past, I disabled it for the time being (I know, totally bad thing to do, but I did it). Then, once I had downloaded the game I turned the antivirus back on and everything ran fine. Then, later I tried to play another game and a message came after dl it and it says, "C:\Program Files\Symantec AntiVirus\VPC32.exe The requested resource is in use." I then tried to disable my antivirus and it told me, "Symantec AntiVirus cannot enable or disable auto protect. You may need to provide Symantec AntiVirus with administrator privelages." What does this mean?? I can't even open up my AntiVirus software because I keep getting this message!!!

Solution for that? restart your computer. youve activated the norton firewall to automatically block some games that uses ports, thus it seems youve created a "confusion" inside the norton system.

do a restart . if its still there... uninstall and re-install is the only solution.

Hello hawk893

Are you logged into a Windows profile w/ Administrator privileges?

If not, change your user profile rights to Administrator (from another Administrator profile).

If the problem persists, enter Safe Mode and try enabling and disabling NAV (Norton Antivirus) from there.

If the problem still persists, you may have picked up a virus that disabled your AV software. You can go HERE if you like to perform an online AV scan. There are other sites as well that will do this for you. Just perform a search engine search on "Online AV Scan".

If you need assistance w/ any of these recommendations, just let me know. I'll be happy to provide detailed instructions for you.


Please, let us know if this response was helpful for you or, of course, if you have more questions, etc. on this topic.

Thank you
BJ

Canr play pogo ongoogle chrome


You need to install Java (from https://www.java.com/en/download/) to be able to play Pogo games. After installation you might need to restart your browser and/or computer before it works.

But please be aware that Java is frequently used to attack your computer with malware. So always update Java as soon as possible and also make sure you're always running an up-to-date antivirus program. At least make your AV program update once a day ...

Ive been trying to play the everafterhigh online game but for some reason my internet browser is not compatible with is there something you can do to help me with this its really frustrating ?


I don't know the game but you could try and check if you are running the latest version of your current browser.
You could also try using a different browser. Internet Explorer is installed as your standard browser if you are using Windows. Some other (free) browsers are Firefox and Google Chrome.
If that doesn't help it could be something else, like your flash plugin not being updated.

I had norton installed on my computer. but now my pogo game with java wont work I uninstalled norton but it still wont let me play my games what wrong and what can i do to fix it


Hi,
First of all make sure you have another antivirus installed on the computer.

Download Norton Removal tool from here and run the program >>>>>>






http://service1.symantec.com/Support/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039






Restart your computer and see if you can play any games. If you can't then you will probably need a Adobe Flash Player update.
Get Adobe Flash here >>>>>

Just install the file and try to play games.
Please let me know how you get on.

Good luck.

Norton 360 has the entire norton protection suite built into it. On top of the firewall, phishing protection, and e-mail protection it also has norton antivirus built right into it. So yes, you have to uninstall antivirus to install 360, but 360 just installs antivirus again. If you ever decide to go back to using just antivirus you can simply redownload it off their web site.
