Norton Antivirus is a bit of a system resourse hog, try AVG 8.0 free version it is a lot better. I run it on all my machines.
You can download the free version here:

Pop up repeatedly


Repeated, unwanted popups are usually the result of spyware (90% of the time), or viruses or other problems (the other 10%).

I highly recommend Norton Internet Security (NOT plain Norton 'Antivirus') as an all-around solution for the average computer user, but you can also remove most popups with some free programs:

MalwareBytes AntiMalware (best SPYWARE remover)

Avira Free AntiVirus -or- Microsoft Security Essentials -or- Avast Free Antivirus (decent VIRUS removers; not nearly as good as Norton, but they are free and remove 80+% of viruses).

One product cannot fix/remove all spyware and viruses these days. I personally use Norton + MalWareBytes , and occasionally run Super AntiSpyware free edition as well.

You can get all the above programs (or links to them) at http://www.download.com (be sure to read all screens during installation, and opt OUT of any additional offered software). Be aware that some are completely free, while others are 30-day trial versions.

PS: always say NO to any "toolbar" installations that come with ANY program you install... especially online games. I use NO toolbars other than those from Yahoo/Google/Norton. Third-party browser toolbars are a huge source of spyware/malware.

A security that we don't know has came into our computer and we can't delete it.Also they are harming my computer.


This is usually not a good sign at all. A large majority of virus's conceal themselves as "Security for your computer or Antivirus Software". Your best bet is to SAVE all your files immediately and prepare for the worst, to reset your computer to its factory settings.
You can try eliminating the virus by installing/ using actual Antivirus software. Try AGV, or Avast. Norton would work, but it's expensive and is a nuisance with popups/ads.
Best of luck.

I would agree that your PC could be virus infected. Your Norton could not detect the virus for 2 possible reasons; 1.) your Norton is not update or 2.) the virus is "unknown" even on the most recent Norton Antivirus.
If your Norton is not updated, you must download the update and your diagnostics once again. You may also try installing a second antivirus on your PC. I may recommend AVIRA as a second antivirus for its performance and it has a FREE version that you could readily install (http://www.avira.com/en/download/).

HOW CAN I TRANSFER MY EXISTING NORTON ANTIVIRUS TO MY LAPTOP?


SPEAKING WITH MY EXPERIENCE TRY SOMETHING ELSE. If you find the information below helpful, pls rate me.

FREE SPYWARE
Download Spybot Search & Destroy. Restart computer, then run Spybot to see what spyware comes up, AND DELET IT.

FYI---Virus Protection-- 2 programs of virus protection will conflict with each other and will actually cancel out the protection. SO just download one.

Running Spybot Search & Destroy with EITHER Avast or Avg (great Free virus protection programs ) will keep a computer in good working condition. FREE

Norton anti virus activation problem


you should have received an email with the activation code in it. If not, the email will have a tech support email or phone number. Good luck

BTW, I never pay for antivirus or spyware programs. I use Avast! antivirus. It's free and comes with a spyware program that is also free. I also browse the internet with FireFox which has all kinds of embedded security unlike Internet Explorer. you can download Firefox from the Mozilla website.

Norton 360 Download



But first you can try going to internet explorer==tools--internet options and there go to security and privacy and in those 2 options you will find you can disable popup blocker, accept alll cookies, turn security level to low or zero and press apply==ok to lower all security which stops the download.

Having done that, when you click the download button keep the Ctrl key pressed down

Thats the 1st thing to try

If that does not work, May be you have a firewall blocking, you may need to disable windows
firewall, or the existing anti-virus's firewall

Try uninstalling or disabling existing anti virus software
then try to download keeping Ctrl key pressed as you click the download button

If that does not work-it probably will-

Go to "contact us" on the page where you downloaded after purchase, and send message stating
your payment transaction ID, product key, and the exact error you are getting, they will repair it. They do store your product key online, ask them

I hope that was of some help. Get back to me if you have any more questions
