Attempted to upgrade Vista to SP1 on an E-machine, during install, Norton reinstalled, upon rebooting - BSOD so I don't know if SP1 issue or Norton, or both. Using VISTA disk, the bar progresses and then...


Try booting into safe mode.
If you can, I suggest getting rid of Norton. The drivers are not compatable with vista.
Vista has a ton of issues and many types of softwhere will not run or work.
If you want a good virus software, use the new software from Microsoft.

I am attempting to install Norton Internet Security 2009. My McAfee Internet Security 2008 runs out in two days. Norton has indicated that I will have to remove an amount of existing programmes (about 20!)...


Norton will not replace the programs.

As long as you have the program disc, just re-install them after installing Norton.

Back up all data (saved documents) first.

Vista security


No if you ask me, Norton 08 should be perfect,....
Vista bby itself is not all that secure.. its good to have additional antivirus program and Norton 08 is in no way less effective than other programs out there.

have no doubts at all, proceed onto instal Norton.. thats the rights thing you do

Computer said norton virus had expired then computer went into hibernation and now will not restart


Try to restart the computer in safe mode or safe mode with networking. Go to control panel, add or remove programs (or programs and features if its vista), and try to remove norton antivirus completely. If that does not work, and you are in safe mode with networking, download the norton removal tool from the internet and run that to remove the norton antivirus completely. Your computer should be able to boot to the normal window, you can downlaod the norton antivirus latest version from the norton website or purchase the norton antivirus disc from any store. All the best.

NEW Norton installed, now I cannot access the internet


hi,
i think your acer laptop comes with its own data protection s/w provided by acer , so it recommended to contact acer or norton because it is recommended to use only one security s/w at a time as they share the common system files for protection

best of luck
