My built in web cam wont work on my Packard Bell EasyNote TE11HC


You probably need to re download the drivers for the webcam.
Go to Packard bell website and look for the model of your computer
and download the drivers.
Note: You don't need Norton it's a waste of money and not very protective.

I use Superantispyware and Avast both free and I'm an IT support specialist.

Norton Advantages & Disadvantages


<p>Advantages & Disadvantages:-<br /> <p>Though Norton anti-virus products and its various versions are one of the best protection software, Norton anti-virus software has some advantages and disadvantages.<br /> <p> <br> <p>Advantages: -<br> <p>When Symantec redesign Norton for Widows compatibility, Norton becomes one of the best protection software in the market. With its every release Norton introduced new features or upgraded features. Norton release new versions almost every year. Some unique features of Norton anti-virus are Sonar protection, File Insight, Network Insight, Power Eraser tool etc. which provides more reliable protection against viruses and other malicious code. It can run at background to work silently. It will warn you before running or installing malicious programs. It can protect your computer spreading viruses from your Facebook feed, e-mail attachments. Simple user interface will help you to work more easily. Norton provides PC utility tool to tune-up your pc and Backup and Restore tool. You can solve your problems online from tech support, where you can find answers for possible problems, use-one-click-solution-first to solve your problems manually and customer help desk, where you can interact with tech support personnel for your query.<br> <p> <br> <p>Disadvantages:- <br> <p>While Norton offers variety of benefits to its users, there are also some drawbacks as well. Prior to the 2009 version of Norton anti-virus, reviews claimed that the software required considerable memory to run, this slowed down the overall performance of the computer. Computers that have an old copy installed might experience this resource issue.<br> <p> <br> <p>Uninstalling is another drawback of Norton. If you attempt to remove Norton Antivirus, the uninstallation process proves difficult. This is one area where Norton fails to compete with its competitors, according to PC Antivirus Reviews. Reviewers asserted, "Uninstalling Norton is nowhere near as good as uninstalling McAfee, which sets the standard for fast, clean, easy uninstallation for anti-virus software."

I have a Packard Bell ixtreme X6622 that worked beautifully until I decided to uninstall Norton and install Paretco anti virus trial software&gt; I was then told about AVG and after reading about AVG...


Wow. No, it should not take that long to do a restore. The problem is stopping the restore MAY brick the system. Your problem seems to have started with the ParetoLogic. It seems this program will not uninstall properly unless you kill it in task manager first. http://support.paretologic.com/customer/en/portal/articles/2222917-how-to-uninstall-paretologic-internet-security-
This is strange because most security program cannot be disabled from task manager. Once you installed AVG you had 2 antivirus running at the same time - if not 3, Norton has been known to not uninstall cleanly. They even make a special removal tool. Download and run the Norton Remove and Reinstall tool
If the restore finishes - great, if it doesn't and you have to shut down the computer, it should roll back when you reboot. That puts you back to where you started so follow the instructions to remove Paretologic, run the Norton Removal tool and just to be sure, run the AVG Removal tool because the install might have been corrupted. http://www.avg.com/ca-en/utilities

Canon imageclass MF3240 and Vista - not working?


uninstall the printer and all of software. then down load the drivers and software and save them to your desktop. then disconnect your pc from the internet, disable your anti virus and fire wall, then run the install from your desk top. alot of anti virus software see's scanner drivers as virus like activity and will not allow them to be installed. all in one installs like this need to be done without anti virus software running. i think this will solve you problem ive solve it many times like this

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.
