Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My Norton Security System independently decides to run its security scans automatically around 8pm most every night. I run an eBay business and this is PRIME TIME for me. It's putting me out-of-business. I need to know how to reprogram this to run at about 2am or 3am while I'm fast asleep and not working the computer.

I have Norton Security, but I still get these annoying messages coming on my screen from Norton asking me to sign up for some security product. I'm getting browed off with Norton so stop this message...


The best thing to do is call Norton and let them know what's going on. They should be able to help you out.

That being said, I find myself hearing increasingly more negative reports about Norton. My suggestion would be to completely remove it from your system.

I use a free antivirus, and never have any problems with my computer. This is the one I use:
http://download.cnet.com/Spybot-Search-Destroy/3000-8022_4-10122137.html?tag=mncol;1
It's completely free and has many features (automatic update and automatic scan/fix, immunization to protect your computer BEFORE you get a virus, etcetera.)

I've been using this program for years, and as I said, have never had any problems with my computer. If Norton is unable to solve your problem, or if you've simply become to fed up with them, that would definitely be my suggestion.

Hope that helps, let me know if you need anything else.

Everytime i try to install norton internet security 2011 on my computer running windows xp it says the program that you try to install has detected as malware and it cancelled the installation..


Seems like you have virus or malware on your computer. Download malwarebytes from www.malwarebytes.org and run a scan. Remove anything that malwarebytes suggest. You should also run a scan in safemode. After you have done this you should try to install Norton Internet Security 2011 again.

I purchased this computer, 2 gig memory last year. I had just put in Norton and it is running SUPER slow. How can I reset this computer to run normal? This is not the laptop


I have known several people who have had similar issues with norton, It seems to be quite resource hungry, if you really want to keep norton then I would suggest a RAM upgrade to give your machine more power, alternatively, you could try another antivirus, I use Microsoft Security Essentials and it works well for me.

However, check to see if norton is running a system scan, this will almost definately make your machine run slower.

Norton Intenet Security 2009 after installation issue "Sec Risk"


It may be a false positive. Sometimes a system file gets tagged as a risk, which upon removal by norton, is automatically re-created by "windows system file protection".

Get as much details about the risk, such as file name, google it and if safe, add to norton's exclusion list.

Full system scan not getting completed


Open NIS and run LiveUpdate. Keep re-running LiveUpdate until it says that there are no more updates. Reboot the system if prompted to do so (you may want to reboot even if it doesn't say it is required, just to be sure everything got replaced properly). Open NIS again, select Tasks and run a Full System Scan. The error message should not appear again.
