Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I am using windows Vista. With my computer came a demo version of Norton 360 Anti Virus. I have tried to remove it as I have just subscribed to BT for an online anti-virus package which includes Norton protection. However I cannot remove it completely and the old Norton is blocking me from downloading the new BT/Norton protection.

A Brief History of Norton Anti-virus


Norton anti-virus is a product of Symantec Corporation. Norton anti-virus helps you to remove viruses and malicious codes from your computer, it also protect you from online threats. Symantec programmed and launched various versions of Norton anti-virus to protect your pc and Internet Security to secure your online activities from hackers.

As per history of Norton products, it's about 25 years before Norton antivirus came on the market. The name of the first Norton anti-virus was Norton Commander, released in the year 1986, served as a standard interface for DOS. This version of Norton was invented to protect DOS from malicious programs. Norton Commander was a prototypical orthodox file manager, written by John Socha and released by Peter Norton.


Norton Commander is considered easy to use based on its constant view of two file manipulation objects at once. After starting the program the user sees two panels with file lists. Each panel can be easily configured to show information about the other panel, a directory tree, or a number of other options.


When Symantec acquired Peter Norton Computing from Peter Norton, Norton starts to develop various utilities or applications for DOS, as well as for Windows. Product activation was introduced in Norton anti-virus 2004. Spyware and adware detection and removal tool was introduced to the 2005 version. The redesign main graphical user interface and homepage hijacking protection was released with 2006 version of Norton anti-virus. With the version of 2007 windows 2000 compatibility was dropped and Vista compatibility was introduced, with anti-rootkit technology. Version 2009 and 2010 released with Sonar protection, File Insight, and rogue security software tools. The latest version of Norton anti-virus is 2011, which protect your computer being infected from facebook wall and feed.

How Norton Anti-virus software work


<p>First you have to install any one anti-virus software and make it ready with online update, and then scan your computer with that anti-virus software. Reliable anti-virus software features a scanner equipped with the technology required to detect and eradicate viruses, worms and other members of the malware family.<br /> <p> <br> <p>Viruses have many strategies to infect your computer, like avoiding detection from protection software. To prevent these virus strategies and protect your computer anti-virus software also has some methods, like Norton anti-virus use Signature base and Heuristics-base detection. Signature based detection includes searching for knowing structure within executable code, however your computer can be infected with most new virus which signature is not known. In that case heuristics method can be used. It can identify new viruses by variation of such code, in files.<br> <p> <br> <p>Norton anti-virus has many other features, which it upgrades from version to version, like Sonar protection. SONAR examines the behaviour of applications to decide whether they are malicious. Various things are checked such as if the program create a desktop shortcut or create add/remove programs entry before determining the program is malicious. Another feature is Norton insight. It is a program that comes with the Norton 360. It improves the speed and quality of computer scan. It identifies well known files of client machine and excludes them from constant monitoring and scanning. It only scans unknown and unsecured files. Skipping the already known files helps the scan more impact. Symantec antivirus can interaction with rogue software, actually these type of software are nothing but a misleading program, it always rebranded and cloned of its previous version.<br> <p> <br> <p>Many other anti-viruses have features like anti-virus, anti-malware, anti-spyware which is used to detect and remove viruses from your computer, whenever you scan your pc with this anti-virus software.

This can be resolved by installing and scanning the computer using Norton 360.

  • Your system performance will be little low for about 7 to 10 days after installing Norton, after this period it will become Normal.
  • This is trial version which will provide you 30 days validity but even 1 year subscription does the same task. You can install whatever antivirus if you wish to switch over.

Nortons sucks. you should try an anti-virus scan with Malwarebytes, then you should install Avast as your resident protection. 

Be sure, when uninstalling Nortons, to use the uninstallation tool found on the nortons site. if you use the regular windows uninstaller, it will not remove all of it, and it will slow your computer down.

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 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.
