Yeah I had Norton and a lot of the time it would just freeze up on me and I have a pretty fast computer. They put a lot of effort into making it look nice and not as much as they should have with the actual code. Also if that's the only part your having trouble with than it's probably because of your internet connection speed or your computer speed. If you really don't want to get rid of it than you might have to just leave your computer on for like a day while your at work or out somewhere. But what I do now is I just use windows defender which is free and very good with windows and very fast too. It doesn't have quite as many features as Norton like parental controls and non-essentials but it will recognize threats and remove them just as well as Norton if not better. It's free and can be found at the link below. AVG Anti-Virus free edition is also one that has gotten great reviews but I've never actually used it so I only know what I've heard. The second link will go to that.

Run the Norton Removal Tool to remove your Norton Anti Virus:

Norton Removal Tool

And then install Norton Anti Virus 2011 and activate it with your 2008 Product Key:

Norton Anti Virus 2011

When you say you have problems with a lot of Virus then install in safe mode and do there a full scan.

Anti-Virus paid for Norton says my Product Key is invalid


If it's expired it means you have to get a new one, most anti virus software are sold for a limited amount of time. Either way Norton is no good, I run Avast free edition and I never had any problems, you should get it too, and if you feel like having even better protection you can buy avast for life for only 65 CAD, which I bet is less than Norton.

Due to the fact that you are using a dial up connection it may take much longer for an update, so please allow more time for it to complete successfully before windows will pick up that you have an anti virus program.

My Norton anti virus has stopped working and will not activate


Bro, my suggestion is, you uninstall you Norton Anti-virus including the Symantec folder installation then install one that is free but can still perform as good as Norton. I am not saying NOrton Anti-Virus is a bad program but, it is systemic and slows down your computer a bit. Norton is a great product everybody kows that !!!! What i can share with you is that, try downloading AVG free or AVAST home edition for which, if you are connected to your net, they regularly send updates to your computer as long as you are registered and your key is up to date. If your Norton Anti-virus is notactivating, it only means one thing, it's not updated.

Norton 360 has the entire norton protection suite built into it. On top of the firewall, phishing protection, and e-mail protection it also has norton antivirus built right into it. So yes, you have to uninstall antivirus to install 360, but 360 just installs antivirus again. If you ever decide to go back to using just antivirus you can simply redownload it off their web site.
