One misunderstanding is that virus scanner will protect you against these problems. But that is not the case. Adware and spyware are not seen as Viruses. So they slip right through the detection grids of your virus scanner. To properly protect yourself from the adware and spyware threats you can install a p
iece of software called "Spyware/Adware removers". These programs can search your whole computer bit by bit for any malicious programs an remove them within seconds.

How Norton Antivirus Works


Norton has traditional virus detection method like Signature base and Heuristics base detection, with anti-virus, anti-rootkit, anti-malware, anti-spyware etc. Symantec upgrade and releases new and more improved features with its every release. Signature based detection includes searching for knowing structure within executable code, however your computer can be infected with most new virus which signature is not known. In that case heuristics method can be use it can identify new viruses by variation of such code, in files. Malwares are very difficult to detect even for the most new anti-virus software. If you are using Norton Antivirus, you should update its data-base and virus definition every day, so that when you scan your computer, it can detect all possible threats. Some new features like SONAR, it examines the behaviour of applications to decide whether they are malicious. Various things are checked such as if the program create a desktop shortcut or create add/remove programs entry before determining the program is malicious.

Norton insight is a program that comes with the Norton 360. It improves the speed and quality of computer scan. It identifies well known files of client machine and excludes them from constant monitoring and scanning. It only scans unknown and unsecured files. Skipping the already known files helps the scan more impact.

Norton 360 introduced a very effective tool - Norton Power Eraser, it removes threats which standard anti-virus may miss. It cleans up system where malware prevents anti-virus installation. Apart from these, the key technologies of Norton anti-virus software are anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-rootkit, and pulse-update - provides up-to-the-minute updates that protect against the latest threats without slowing down your computer, firewall software - that can use for mapping and monitoring network.

My Microsoft Picture It! closes with an unexpted error when I try to use it. I understand that there may be a connection to that and Norton Utilities. I have Norton 360. Can you help? Madeline


Get rid of Norton.

Scan your computer. Download Malwarebytes then Scan with Spybot Search and Destroy.

SPEAKING WITH MY EXPERIENCE: Either try Security Essentials from Microsoft OR Avast. There’s free software out there to try.

Helpful Free Software below Read On.

FREE SPYWARE
Download Spybot Search & Destroy. Restart computer, then run Spybot to see what spyware comes up, AND DELET IT.

FYI---Virus Protection-- 2 programs of virus protection will conflict with each other and will actually cancel out the protection. SO just download one.

Running Spybot Search & Destroy with EITHER Avast or Avg (great Free virus protection programs ) will keep a computer in good working condition. FREE

Some kind of virus has corrupted your operating system. (OS)

I had a similar problem, the best solution would be for you to reinstall your OS and also change the anti virus.
