Norton configuration on HP Notebook

I recently purchased Norton Antivirus 2008. I tried to install it. It is on my computer but it's not "configured" so it is not able to detect or take off viruses. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling several times. It hasent worked.
I can open the program, but the interface says that it's "not configured"

    What operating system are you running?
    Is the message that Norton is not configured, or that something else is not configured correctly?

Symatech antivirus cpu usage is very high if your system is not a high configuration it makes slow.
the newer versions of nortorn antivirus are good and fast like nortorn antivirus 2010 so try latest version by removing old. or try avast anivirus which is very fast and working very good.

System has a virus mbr invected by bloodhpund.mbr how do I delete this. I purchased Norton 2010 but it won't remopve the problem says it needs to be installed but can't get into system to install.


You're Acer probably has Rescue and Recovery™ installed. Rescue and Recovery is a suite of self-recovery tools to help you diagnose, get help, and recover your system.

When you set the Bloodhound heuristics in Norton AntiVirus to it's highest setting you probably ran a virus scan and saw a Norton AntiVirus alert that states that it's detected a potential threat, Bloodhound.MBR. But this is probably not a virus but the recovery software on your laptop.

Solution:

If you have IBM Rescue and Recovery and Norton AntiVirus Bloodhound heuristics are configured to the highest setting, Norton AntiVirus may alert you with a Bloodhound.MBR detection when you run a virus scan. To avoid this, configure your Bloodhound heuristics to the default setting.

To reset Bloodhound to the default setting
  1. Start Norton AntiVirus.
    If Norton AntiVirus was installed as part of Norton Internet Security or Norton SystemWorks, then start one of those programs.
  2. Click Options.
    If you see a submenu, then click Norton AntiVirus.
  3. Click Auto-Protect.
  4. Click Bloodhound.
  5. Click Default level of protection (recommended).
  6. Click OK
  7. Repeat steps 3-6 for Manual Scan.
    In step 3, substitute Manual Scan for Auto-Protect.
  8. Exit Norton AntiVirus.

I'm trying to instal Norton Ghost 14. Installation goes fine until reboot. I get error E1AD3212 oon Ghost startup ande can't start the Ghost service manually -- Is there a fix for this -- Windows XP SP3...


Which antivirus previously installed? If any antivirus present then remove it in safe mode.
And better to install Norton in Safe mode
Go to Safe Mode with Networking by Tapping F8 key during Bootup, a black screen with option, select the option and then login as Admin account..

If it fails, then try using the Security Configuration Tool to make sure you have privileges to Ghost. You'll find the Tool in your programs menu under Programs|Norton Ghost|Security Configuration Tool.
After then, install Norton.. Let me know the status for further assistance.
Best of Luck

Norton trial version expired but not uninstalled


1. Yes, uninstall before installing any other antivirus program or security suite. Your computer (and you) will be happier.
2. Once you uninstall the trial version of Norton, go ahead and download One Care. I've heard some good things about it, but haven't used it personally or seen it installed on a client's computer.
3. Symantec/Norton has made improvements to their software uninstalls. If you have a newer version of Norton installed, it should cleanly uninstall from the Add/Remove programs area. If it's older, you may have issues getting it to uninstall - leaving remnants as you mentioned. Symantec has help removing their software completely on their support site if you need help.


Hope this helps! : )
