Question about PC Desktops

2 Answers

I am getting a pop up from Norton Antivirus all the time and it may take 20-30 times to press Block before it goes away. It states "Norton Internet worm Protection has detected a remote system that is attempting to access your computer.If you've started a program that requires Internet access eg. gaming etc then select Permit to allow the program to continue." I have not accesssed any outside programs. This started shortley after I attempted to download some CD's onto my iPod. Is there something I should be checking off so that the antivirus will block automatically? Thank you.

    sorry, I have to suggest agains mattozans solution about uninstalling norton and going with only defender.

  • Ekse Apr 08, 2008

    avg is very good as mattozan suggested, but if your still paying for norton I would keep it, other option is avg or avast which is also free. www.avast.com

Are you using Windows XP?

    If you are using Windows Vista, I recommend just using the built-in Windows Defender, and uninstalling Norton.

    If you are using Windows XP, then I recommend installing AVG AntiVirus and uninstalling Norton.

    Norton products are notorious for popping up warnings all of the time, even for innocuous problems. They do this to make more money by making people feel so scared that they keep buying more Norton products.

    AVG is a superior antivirus application, and it is free. It won't pop up a warning unless something is really happening that needs your attention.

    It will work on Windows Vista as well, in conjunction with Windows Defender.

Try uninstall norton antivirus and load avira antivirus, run word program and check whether an error will come out. If no error, your antivirus might be corrupted and somehow affects your application. If error still occurs after replacing norton, uninstall office program and reinstall again.

norton does not automatically renew, unless you pay, then you can update the version, either a spam e mail or pop up, only renew it when the official norton pop up tells you

When surfing, this ANtivirus 2009 alert came on and can't get rid of it. I've also gotten a green screen pop up informing me I have a SPYWARE.MONTER. What can I do? ...


Hey tjchan92,

Unless you personally installed the "AntiVirus2009" program or this other application, what you may be encountering are either misleading plug-in applications or your computer may currently have spyware installed. Generally, one of the best ways to determine what these programs are is to run a system scan using the full version of an anti-virus/spyware program such as Norton AntiVirus or McAfee VirusScan. Should you choose to do so, you’ll want to make sure you’re using the latest virus and spyware definitions available since new threats surface all the time.

Please keep in mind that I only mention Norton & McAfee as examples. These are by no means the only anti-virus/spyware programs available, and are simply among the most easily-recognizable brands available through many major retailers.

Alternatively, you may be able to minimize how often these windows appear by adjusting your internet settings. Doing so will typically block pop-up windows and banner ads from websites you visit, and can often be done by changing your Internet Explorer privacy setting to "Medium-High" or "High” through the “Tools” menu.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Delete Norton. Its terrible and slows your machine down. Go to Start>Control Panel>Add/remove programs. And uninstall it.
Use AVG Antivirus instead, its free and much better.
