Question about PC Desktops

2 Answers

I recently bought a laotop (windows vista) and There was a offer from Norton 360 for a free 30 day trial. It was only on 15 days,I didn't think much of it since I paid for a anti-virus, but I'm getting alerts of threats on the computer,and nothing more. I was wondering if I could possibly get the remainding 15 days, and I will be ok til I get paid and can buy norton. (hopefully)

I would highly recommend removing any Norton product on the laptop and installing something that will actually work. Norton is a major resource hog and it's firewall alone can cause obscure problems. To do so you can either google Norton Removal Tool, or go to this website;
http://service1.symantec.com/Support/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039

Once norton has been completely removed from the system, you have several options as far as antivirus and firewall go. I personally use Avast Antivirus(freeware) on all of my machines and any of my clients PCs. As far as a firewall goes, the windows firewall works fine, but ZoneAlarm is an exceptional free firewall program. For antimalware, I use spybot search and destroy, lavasoft adaware 2007, and superantispyware.

    You should make sure all Norton products are fully removed BEFORE installing any other security software!

Why is my screen pitch black when I turn on my compyer


Hi Hi,

I guess my laptop just got infected with some trojan viruses and the screen is now all pitch black. what can I do to solve this problem? Please help! thanks in advance

I can only open up the task manager by clicking cotrol, alternate and delete and manges to surf the net somehow, other than this, I can't do anything as my screen is unable to load.

I have tried installing 30-day trial version of AVG anti virus but it detected my exrpired McAfee and said conflict of software. So, I can't install a free trial antivirus online. I have Norton bought recently but just didn't manage to get around installing it.

In Real Trouble and need of help,
Jenn

Norton Internet Security 2005 English 90-Day trial stops


Just cancel the setup. Or you can press Alt+F4 to automatically close it out.

You should check out AVG Free edition for your anti-virus needs. I dig it.

So slow on start up, comp only 6 months old


It will be easy enough to prove whether it is the Norton or not. Make sure you have it registered with Symantec. Uninstall it using Symantec's Norton Removal Tool.

See how it performs. I don't expect much improvement, but at least you can go back to the vendor with some ammo. Hopefully they wil give you some satisfactory help and then you can reinstall the 360 and login to Symantec to reactivate it.

If it does improve to "new" condition...hmmm, I'll have to think about that.

A question: Where you surfing much before installing the Norton 360? There is always a chance you picked up some spyware/malware that is causing the problem. Comment back.

Purchased product and extended download service (knew my old computer was about to die) got new computer and it offered me free Norton, so I accepted that thinking I could put in my proper Norton later on,...


Most Software is not Transferable which makes it hard at times. The Free Trail you accepted from Norton does and will Expire on that date. The only way your going to get a Full Version on your new Computer is to Purchase a new License. I know it does not seam fair, but these large companies just go by the rules.

Norton 360


Hi Sheba,

Yes you can load norton 360 on your new pc. If you have all the license codes, just remove the trial version from your new pc and installed the full version of 360. To uninstall you can either go to control panel -> add remove programs and select the nortan trial software. Or you can find an installation's link under the program list. Hope this helps.
