Tying to install kaspersky anti virus programme.its coming up to remove norton anti virus which ive removed all norton programmes but its still saying remove norton virurs


If you did a reboot then it should be gone however; Norton is notorious for not removing all of its little registry stragglers after uninstall. They have a program that will go in and grab the remnants.

Please see

Also please offer a review if this was helpful and a thumbs up :)

Can Norton help me to remove BAT LOOPER threat from my pc


Yes, without a doubt but you will need to follow the instructions and have the latest update.
I would remove your hard drive, install another one on a temporary basis. Load Norton on the new drive and clean the other hard drive with a USB link. That way the virus cannot stay in the laptop as Norton will stop it entering whilst Norton cleans the drive.
Hope that helps.

I have a samsung notepad laptop.it has no disk drive and has a trojan virus on it which wont even allow me to get onto the internet.i was given norton security with it but with no disk drive how do they...


norton should be able to scan 'flash memory', and remove mal-ware. click on my computer, choose your flash drive- right click and choose 'scan'. since norton came with your 'netbook', it should be able to clean your 'flashdrive'- do you have any usb peripheral drives connected? norton should detect, and clean them, as well! make sure you 'update' your norton definitions first- if you can! try un-plugging any peripherals, before you run it. if it cleans up- then upgrade your norton definitions, and reconnect any peripherals, and run norton on them!! norton should allow you to chose which device to check!
good luck!

Hi. My Antispy located a worm AutoIt/Renocide.gen!B.


try again..... restart pc ...try to access live update via norton anti virus software..if no joy remove norton antivirus and reinstall software.ps if you try to reinstall norton without first removing norton software will do this for you , may a better option bacause sometimes windows remove app leaves data behind which can sometimes cause problems especially with norton antivirus.
if it was me I'd wipe my pc and reinstall fresh and all software because if you make mistake with norton youre gonna end up having to reinstall everything anyway.there is a program off the net on norton site called norton removal tool ...this is just the job ...if you cant find it let me know and I will either send you the net page for it or can upload it to you via email....

I can't remove AVG8.0 from my computer I can't remove avg8, I have already uninstall avg8, but when I want to install Kapersky, the instalation is cancelled. Why is this happening?


Use the AVG Uninstaller that must have got installed when you installed the program.

Also, there may be an option to automatically delete the other anti-virus in the Kapersky Installer. I have done that when I was installing Norton 360. I had Windows Defender which conflicted.

It deleted automatically after I confirmed and Norton installed without any other problem. Actually Norton is better and more used worldwide than any other.

I suggest Norton AntiVirus or Internet Security.

Replacing Norton with anything else


Norton is a real pain, and can be a bigger pain to get rid of. First, go to filehippo.com and download CCleaner, and also download AVG, but save the AVG download to the desktop. After removing Norton you will be using AVG for your antivirus. Once you have the CCleaner installed, open the tools section on the left. This is an uninstaller, it works considerably better than the add/remove programs section of Windows. Remove anything that reads Norton. This is where it may get tricky, Norton has a couple of blocking programs built in that try to keep you from using another antivirus, or removing Norton. So, the uninstall may run the first try, or you may get a message to the effect of the updater is running. If you get this message, then you will need to open Norton, go into the settings, and turn off everything. Then try the uninstall again. Once you've uninstalled all Norton related programs, run the registry cleaner. Norton likes to leave a little blocker in the registry that prevents the install of other antiviruses. Noe that this is done, you're ready to install the AVG. NOTE at one point there will be a section that will install the AVG internet toolbar, uncheck this box, you don't need it, and once it's installed you can't remove it without removing and reinstalling AVG. Some finer points about AVG is very little maintenance,it updates automatically, will scan at a time preset by you, so as to not hinder your use at the time of the scan, it protects against spyware and adware along with the antivirus, and has real time internet security without using hardly any resources. I believe you will be happy with it. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.
