This is a virus and a pretty bad one. It's capable of disabling your Antivirus and even changing entries in the registry.
Go to "Dogpile.com" and write in how to take out "Antivirus 2009". I had to finally end up reformatting my C drive. But ignore all it's messages as they are bogus. Good Luck...

    This virus is also called Antivirus 2008. It seems that our own AntiViruses detect it but seems to be swallowed by it once detected. Quarantining and deleting only seems to execute it more.

    If your good in the registry start there doing an F3 find for that name, if it doesn't find any of them and you know how do a manual search because it is there. Then do a search from your search assistant/ right click one at a time/ open containing folder and try delete. You should find many names as Trojans are all about disguising their names. If you find yourself losing the battle then check out my advice at the top of this comment. It's a tough one.

I had Norton Internet Security 2009 installed in my computer in August, 2009, and I am getting pop ups that my subscription is running out in 4 days.


Did you purchase the Norton Internet Security? If yes, then you need to verify with Symantec (Developer of Norton) if their program is a one-time purchase only or needs to get renewed every month or two.

Or there could be a possibility that you just need a new product code. Ask them if they could provide you one for free. Check the link below and you would be redirected to the Norton Web site:

Norton Internet Security 2009 Causes Blue Screen of Death.


Hi there
Thats Norton for you! this is a very heavy and memory hungry program, it takes control of your computer and if you have not got enough system or virtual memory it will cause the pc all kinds of problems. To fix this either upgrade the system memory or don't use Norton, use AVG free instead, its a lighter program and lets you have some speed back over the internet.

good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Cannot activate norton 360


Hi Uptonmark,

I have come across this problem on a norton 360 antivirus solution before. It would also get pretty complicated if you're using vista. However, one of the first things you should do when using any antivirus is to tell the windows OS (be it vista or XP), that your anti virus is taking over the firewall + antivirus activities of the computer. So, what you might wanna do is:

1. Launch norton 360 and check to see if your outbond traffic is being blocked. Your outbound traffic to connect to the server should NOT be blocked and sometimes in 360, it is blocked by defualt.

2. Go to the control panel. Under security, define norton 360 as your firewall and anti virus. If you can afford it, disable windows firewall (since norton 360 is taking care of that problem).

3. After these settings, restart computer (for any process changes to take effect) and try to connect and see.

Hope the above suggestions help. Also, when defining your whitelist (a list of programs that are allowed to traffic in and out through your firewall), try to allow as much as programs possible (those that you deem important enough(, to prevent such an incident like this from ever happening again. Or you could take the route that i took... get bitdefender. Less complicated and more advanced security options. Norton 360 is good too, but for my personal computer, i;d stick with bitdefender any day. Hope the above helps. Let me know if the suggestions work out, else i can instruct in more detail. Thanks.

Regards,

Techomancer.

Norton 360


i understand u r problem..

norton anti-virus is one of the most powerful anti-virus..
it takes lot of memory...
after installing norton u r system may be slow.. but it depends on u r system configaration.

if u r system already contains virus before installing norton .
then what you have to do is right click on my computer icon and start scaning with norton . then i maximum try to clean the virus .

if it does not did so then i will tell u another solution..

I installed Norton 360 security software yesterday and today a pop up tells me there is a problem with the set up and I should try to install again with the same CD when I start to do this the CD pop up...


Deans867,

read carefully..Its probably telling you to insert the CD so it uninstalls and then re-installs Norton 360. When it uninstalls it gives u a warning message "you will loose 366 days. .. "

Just a Note: Norton 360 will slow your PC down. and do unwanted things. I have trouble shot issues involving Norton 360 and wireless connection issues amongst many others.. If you can return it your better off without it.

It is cheaper and more effective to purchase such products as:
AVG or Kaspersky
or maybe even a Opensource Freebie like:
Calmwin from Sourceforge.net

Good luck,
