The default version of Norton Internet Security 2005 [Symantec Corp.] wont let me back in. I accidently logged out and now when I try to sign in, I dont know how because I dont have the password for the default supervisor account. My guess is that there is a default one if it hasnt been altered by the user, but I dont know...help?

I cant turn off the firewall or even delete the program becaue it has me with restricted settings unless Im on the supervisor.

ahh, yet another Norton problem...

I think you'd prefer the easy solution. Here:

Norton Removal Tool

Download it and run it. Use it to get rid of that pain in the butt and then reinstall Norton, unless you want to switch to something more friendly. :whistling:

heck no...Avast is not only great, but also free:

But if you want to pay for something, Kaspersky's the top dog ($50):

Kaspersky

I heard that NOD32 is better than Kaspersky, but I've never tested it, so I cannot say anything about it. :whistling:

If you switch, you really will be more satisfied. Norton takes up too many resources and is a mistake.

All good .... but if you wanted a commercial solution >>> http://www.trendmicr...ome/us/home.htm <<

It is stable, takes up less resources, is fast and has great support.
