Question about PC Desktops

I just purchased Norton 360 2.0 CD to install in my computer. Three hours later - not installed. I have AVG 8.0 that continues to pop up when I initiate the Norton installation, installation tben stops and asks to shut down and restart, which I have done at least 10 times. Should I remove the AVG. My concern if I do that and can't get this Norton installed - am I vulnerable to a virus attack. Help

Yes you need to uninstall any and all antivirus programs installed on your computer. After uninstalling, make sure to reboot your computer. Do that for each antivirus or internet security software you have installed. Once done, it Norton 360 should install. If you have troubles uninstalling AVG, check their support area on their website. I'm not sure if you have a paid version or the free version but here are the sites for both.

Are you still having this problem? If so, uninstall Norton 360 and restart the system.
After restarting then setup Norton 360 do not add any additional apps into your computer until
it fully is installed and it tells you to restart the system.

If that doesn't solve the problem then get AVG Internet Security 2011 and it will help you to secure your system from hackers and viruses.

Let me know if the problem persists. Then the other thing is total format of the system and all data has to be backed up in Safe Mode. Do not do any thing other then backing up and formatting the system to a fully brand new partition and install Windows back on and do not connect to the internet till you get Norton or AVG installed once there installed then connect to the internet and see if that solved the problem.

After that install on the applications and then restart and login into your system and your all set.

I purchased the AVG Anti-virus & anti- spyware cd


Installing AVG might not be able to solve your spyware problem.

You could try downloading free mbam:

http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/malwarebytes/mbam-setup.exe

Double-click and install it. Then run it. Click the Scan button, It will detect and remove the Spyware Guard 2008

After clicking on OK button for scan is complete, you need to click the Remove Selected button when the malwares are listed.

Let the computer reboot if mbam needs that.
Then try installing AVG.

Just in case, you could also try booting from the AVG CD. If it's bootable, it will be able to scan your computer without the need to boot in to windows. Try it too.

Hi co2donjo,

It appears that your un-install didn't quite finish in its entirety, no problem try this:
First off, go to control panel and click on security, see if windows still recognizes norton as your antivirus. If not and it says you are unprotected, go ahead and download the av of your choose, however, Avast is hard to beat, its free and reliable. Follow the setup instructions. You may get a message that says "Avast has detected other av programs install on this computer-do you want to continue with install, click yes or OK. Once your av is up and running go around and delete anything and everything that says norton/symtac. There are quicker ways of deleting the norton av, but, that would depend on your level of windows expertise. You don't want to go snooping through your root directory or your root if your not clear on what to do, so, try this and see if it helps.

I installed Norton 360 security software yesterday and today a pop up tells me there is a problem with the set up and I should try to install again with the same CD when I start to do this the CD pop up...


Deans867,

read carefully..Its probably telling you to insert the CD so it uninstalls and then re-installs Norton 360. When it uninstalls it gives u a warning message "you will loose 366 days. .. "

Just a Note: Norton 360 will slow your PC down. and do unwanted things. I have trouble shot issues involving Norton 360 and wireless connection issues amongst many others.. If you can return it your better off without it.

It is cheaper and more effective to purchase such products as:
AVG or Kaspersky
or maybe even a Opensource Freebie like:
Calmwin from Sourceforge.net

Good luck,

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.
