Question about Computers & Internet

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.

    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.

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

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.

Windows pops up everytime i right click a folder or file!


Hi, It would seem that at one time Symantec AntiVirus was installed in your PC. Part of its protection design is to ingrain itself within the shell of windows explorer. There is a possibility that the program was forcibly removed by folder delete and not through the usual uninstall as you posted. Remnants of the program are still present/active and were not uninstalled. A couple of things you can try: 1. Install Symantec AntiVirus again and then uninstall using the auto/complete option; 2. Install Norton Utilities and run WinDoctor, after scanning, click "Repair All"; 3. Install WinOptimizer and and run using User Defined option, check everything and start, delete erroneous entries; 4. go to Start, Run, type "msconfig" without the quotes, in the Startup tab, uncheck all references to Norton or Symantec; 5. go to Start, Run, type "regedit" without the quotes, in the Registry Editor press Ctrl + F, type "Symantec" in the Find what, click on Find Next, delete all instances. This is of course assuming that you do not have any other Norton/Symantec programs essential to your PC and that you have taken the usual precautions of registry backup, system restore point. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
