Virus on pc. installed norton internet security.


Never before have I heard of a VIRUS installing ANTI-VIRUS software. I have had intermittent mouse problems before though. Thought it was a virus, as I interchanged with like 4 other (used) mouses (mice?) and there was no change. Found a fifth used mouse-a genuine Microsoft mouse (I was running Vista 64bit Home Premium) and installed it and my mouse problem disappeared ("installing new device"). I couldn't figure it out for the longest time, (still can't), I'm just glad it cleared up.
I run AVG FREE antivirus software and Ad-Aware anti-spyware (also FREE). I run both of those at least once a week, in addition to defragmenting once a week, haven't had a problem since.

I wish to install Windows Vista Home Premium. I already have Windows XP. I pay for Norton Internet Security by direct debit through Tiscali and have done so since, 2006. I have run Norton Liveupdate. ...


You will need to cancel your Norton subscription and use one of their products that is suitable for Vista. May I suggest that you purchase Norton Internet security 2009 for a single payment of about 70 dollars.

U can email the symantec website customer support and they can give you your product code. If You are tring to use it on a new vista platform, Norton does not support vista. I had to move over to Sheild Deluxe due to that reason.

New Dell desktop computer - installed Norton Security 2007 - sreensaver and energy modes don't work


Since Norton and many other virus protection programs run in the background of the computer, when you try to go into standby mode, or screen saver mode, the program is recognized as an action by the user, hence triggering the computer to return to normal use. So all you have to do is turn off Norton before you go into standby mode, and this should fix the problem.
