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"

Download from http://www.freedownloadscenter.com/Utilities/Anti-Virus_Utilities/Norton_Antivirus_Download.html and install it on your PC.
1 Insert the CD into the CD-ROM drive.
2 When the opening screen appears, click Install Norton Internet Security or Install Norton Personal Firewall.
3 In the Scan for Viruses dialog box, do one of the following:
* If you have reason to believe your computer is infected, click Yes to scan your computer for viruses. * If you have recently scanned for viruses and you are not infected, you may skip the scan and click Next.
4 Read the License Agreement, and then click I accept the License Agreement. If you decline the License Agreement, you cannot continue with the installation.
5 Click Next.
6 Type the product key for activation. For more information on activating your program, read the document Activating your product.
7 Click Next.
8 Select one of the following installation types:
* Install Now Install using the most common settings. This is the best choice for most users. * Custom View an additional window that will allow you to install without accounts and Parental Control. If you do not install these features, you will have to use Add/Remove Programs in the Windows Control Panel to create accounts or use Parental Control.
9 Click Next.
10 Review the information on the screen and then click Next to start the installation. The installation window displays installation progress. Depending upon the speed of your computer, this may take a few minutes.
11 After the installation has completed, click Next.
12 Click Restart Now, then click Finish to complete the installation.
13 After restarting your computer, skip to the next section for post-installation instructions, "Running the Configuration Wizard".
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.
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.
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.
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
Start Norton AntiVirus.
If Norton AntiVirus was installed as part of Norton Internet Security or
Norton SystemWorks, then start one of those programs.
If you see a submenu, then click Norton AntiVirus.
Click Default level of protection (recommended).
Repeat steps 3-6 for Manual Scan.
In step 3, substitute Manual Scan for Auto-Protect.
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
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.
heres 1 possible solution.
uninstall Norton, and Download AVG free from the internet.
Install AVG get the latest updates, and put Norton to 1 side, to use as a coaster or Beer-mat.
