Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

Our Norton AntiVirus is "green-checked" only 25% of the time. When I go to try to turn on the AutoProtect, it says, "error". This has been going on for about a month. We do the Live Update and the complete scan at least once a week. We reboot often after trying to get it on again, but it doesn't seem to make a difference. Is there an easy answer? Should we install a new antivirus program? We still have over 50 days left on our subscription.

Try uninstall norton antivirus and load avira antivirus, run word program and check whether an error will come out. If no error, your antivirus might be corrupted and somehow affects your application. If error still occurs after replacing norton, uninstall office program and reinstall again.

Hello,

Rhis error due to there is a resident virus or your system infexted by virus already. for the main time try to install other antivirus. you can get it here for free: http://free.avg.com/download-avg-anti-virus-free-edition

And then scan your system. You can remove the sysmantec if you like AVG or you can reinstall the symantec if there is no error in your system. remove either of the two antivirus to avoid conflict in the system.

Unable to open live TV in HP PC Media Center


Look at the alerts in the security and firewall of Norton antivirus. It might be blocking it. also keep an eye on your bottom right corner when you attempt the live TV. Norton may be alerting you about the blocks in that area. Make sure you allow those connections. I would check Norton firewall and security before messing with the Windows firewall.

When i turn off my computer it says END PROGRAM ccSvc.Hst When I press end program it takes forever for my computer to turn off. Also other option says press cancel and return to windows when I do this...


That file is part of Norton/Symantec security suite. I've seen that error on many systems with Norton Products.

You may be able to avoid the error by closing Norton in the system tray prior to shutdown of the system.

When you select shutdown from the menu, windows forces all running programs to shutdown, including the antivirus. For whatever reason, sometimes Norton doesn't like the shutdown request.

If you are not especially attached to the Norton product, you might try uninstalling it and trying AVG or Avast antivirus.

http://free.grisoft.com is the link to download AVG 8.0

I got norton antivirus trial version installed on my new computer. Now i can't get my email page open even though i've tried numerous times to change the norton settings and get Hotmail page verified. ...


Delete Norton. Its terrible and slows your machine down. Go to Start>Control Panel>Add/remove programs. And uninstall it.
Use AVG Antivirus instead, its free and much better.

My problem is my auto-protect is turnt of and when i try to turn it back on it won't let me


First of all, restart the computer if you haven't. If that doesn't work, reinstall the program. If it still won't work, well let's wait until you've reinstalled to make any further recommendations.
