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.

Tamper monitor pop-up. How do I stop it?


An incomplete Norton installation activity (like a software for online security for kids) could have taken place. I suggest to uninstall this completely, clean it up and reboot. That should take care of it.

Good luck!

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.

I purose Norton 360 02 and I am having trouble installing it on my computer. When I use teh CD it begins to install the program and the stops saying it can't a file, something like msi. I don't know...


Hello,

I would suggest removing ALL detected Norton and Symantec products with the Norton Removal Tool for Norton 360 found here.

http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2007080716223439?Open&docid=2005033108162039&nsf=tsgeninfo.nsf&view=docid

After the uninstall of all Norton and Symantec programs you will also want to download the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility found here. The download link is at the bottom of the More Information section,

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301

After the utility is installed and ran you will want to remove all Norton and Symantec programs listed in the removal list.

After you remove the programs and restart you should be able to reinstall the Norton 360 program.

I hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

Are norton security says that are security status is at risk.tried fix now a few times,doesnt work.says spyware defs at risk.virus spyware scan at risk.protection updates at risk.please help


In my experience Norton can become flakey at times. Make sure your subscription to norton has not expired. Otherwise try un-installing norton and re-installing it. Part of it may have become corrupted.

I've already purchased Norton antivirus 2008 with antispyware and loaded but my screen still blue and shows Warning spyware detected in computer & to install antivirus or spyware wich i did.


That blue screen sounds like a trick to me. Many viruses and spywares or the websites that distribute them make beleive that they are causing viruses then provide links to fake antivirus and spyware removal programs that actually make your system worst.

Use the Norton to purchased to do a full deep scan of your system. I also like to supplement my Norton by running the free scan at housecall.trendmicro.com when I suspect there might be a problem on my machine that Norton can't fix.
