Question about Symantec Norton AntiVirus 2008: Windows
My os is windows 7 symentec not supported , i want supported symentec anti virus
Windows 7 comes with backward compatiblity, which means that any programmes could be installed even if written for windows xp.
follow the steps below to start.
1. Right click on the setup for your anti-virus
2. look at the tab that say "compatibilty" (or something similar)
3. select that tab
select the previous version (i recommend windows xp pack 3) and make sure to tick the box that says run in administration mode.
4. apply the changes and start the installation again.
you should be able to install now but for any reason i would also like you to right click the setup file and choose "run as administrator" even after applying the above settings. Also if you are installating from a cd, open the cd and apply the settings to the setup file.
let me know of the outcome and good luck
