I have had an issue with Nortons since I renewed my subscription. It kept saying it was not working with that big red circle with white X in it. I did the one click support and followed the directions and all. I even was on hold 3 times with nortons tech support. One Nortons tech said windows defender was causing the problem and did a remote control access to reinstall nortons and delete windows defender. I think this guy had no clue what he was doing, now I'm finding over 1000 registry errors... windows defender is partially deleted, and nortons still is not working and now I'm left without any form of virus protection and Nortons isn't helping me. The tech was not friendly and actually was mad that I called 3 times, because they would end communication (somehow) and I'd call again.

I don't recommend Norton's Symantec products to anyone who wants to keep their computer.

Using what? It's not recommended to play with registry.

Norton is a horrible program.
Uninstall completely, using this tool: http://service1.syma...005033108162039

Then you have some excellent free programs....

- Avast! free antivirus: http://www.avast.com...avast-home.html
- Avira free antivirus: http://www.free-av.c...load/index.html

- free PC Tools Firewall Plus: http://www.pctools.com/firewall/

- free Comodo Internet Security (firewall + AV): http://www.personalf...all.comodo.com/

If you decide to install Avast, or Avira, make sure, Windows firewall is turned on, or use PC Tools Firewall Plus.
If you decide to install Comodo, make sure, Windows firewall is turned off.

IMPORTANT! Make sure, you use only ONE antivirus, and ONE firewall.
