Preferred Solution: Norton Security 7.6 for Mac is now available!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I currently have Norton Systemworks 2002 (with Cleansweep, Ghost, WinDoctor, etc)... last week, my tech support at Gateway suggested that I could improve online performance by *upgrading* to Norton Internet Security 2004.

Today I rec'd the box in the mail, and the first thing I noticed was that the 2004 software doesn't include any of those handy-dandy utilities I want those!!!

Gateway says to go ahead and un-install the 2002 software, then install the new 2004 software to *see if the utilities might be on there anyway*...

I smell computer havoc ahead.... help
 

A:Replace Norton Systemworks 2002 with Norton Internet Security 2004?

Those 2 programs are not the same. Nortons Systemwork is all the system tools for defragging, scanning registry, etc. Along with anti-virus and such.

Nortons Internet security is a Firewall, and not a good one at that. If they sent you just internet security, then it's only the firewall. What it sounds like you need/want is Nortons Systemworks 2004.

I have already talked to a Symantec Support technician, and he has told me that there are basically two ways of removing NIS 2007 if I want to upgrade to NIS 2009: run the removal tool twice to get rid of NIS 2007, then install NIS 2009, or let NIS 2009 remove NIS 2007.

Norton blocks wmiprvse access to Norton security. What is this process?
 

A:Norton blocks wmiprvse access to Norton security. What is this process?

From Process Library. wmiprvse.exe - What is wmiprvse.exe?

What is wmiprvse.exe doing on my computer?
wmiprvse.exe process refers to a core Windows management technology known as Windows Management Instrumentation which allows users to be able to manage local and remote systems alike. Through WMI daily management tasks through programming or scripting languages can be undertaken. To mention a few, the list includes the ability to reboot a computer remotely or manually start a process on a remote system. Among the capabilities of WMI, one can include views, querying, eventing and remoting.

Developers use the wmiprvse.exe file in order to develop applications used for monitoring purposes. These programs can notify users about important events related to network and file or application management right after each event occurs. With wmiprvse.exe, file managers in the enterprise environment are capable of configuring and searching for desktop system information or network and application information across the network.

The wmiprvse.exe file is placed with other services in the shared service host. This started to be applied with the release of MS Windows XP. Providers are also loaded separately in the wmiprvse.exe file since it considers the wmiprvse.exe executable as a host process.
wmiprvse.exe is a system process that is needed for your PC to work properly. It should not be removed. .

Hi everybody,
Does anyone know how "Norton Anti Spam 2005" handles incoming Emails and how it sorts them out in category "Spam or Not"?
Problem is, if I send emails to some friends of mine (11 all together), 6 of the 11 emails, (they are all using "Norton AntiSpam 2005", too) go straight to the ďNorton ANTISPAM Folder), without asking the single User if this is spam or not, and get sorted out.
They havenít generated a rule or anything like it either. What means, those settings have to be standard settings by Norton.
It also doesnít matter if I send an attachment, like a pic or a file or even simple plain text. My Emails are sorted out right away after they are fetched from the Mailserver.

PS: Iím not a spammer, so Norton canít have me on a blacklist or anything like it. Has anyone any idea what to do in a case like this?

Thanks a lot

Any thoughts on Facebook and keeping safe?Social networking sites (MySpace, YouTube, Facebook) can be a significant security risk which could make your computer susceptible to malware infection. As with gaming sites, users visiting MySpace, YouTube, Facebook...are exposed to innocuous-looking banner ads containing code which can trigger pop-up ads and malicious Flash ads that install viruses, Trojans and spyware. Ads are a target for hackers because they offer a stealthy way to distribute malware to a wide range of Internet users.

[size=4][font=Times New Roman]I received a error message that said I would need to uninstall Nortons and reinstall in order for it to work properly. I run Windows XP and for about two months I have been having problems with the computer crashing and then a message from Windows which stated that my system had recovered from a serious error. To make a long story short, I uninstalled Nortons and then reinstalled it. I had also received the message from Microsoft that my system was probably infected with "Spyware.Apropos C." When I reinstalled Nortons now I keep getting a message from Norton Anti Virus Auto Protect which states that a virus with the name Spyware.Apropos C has infected my system and I need to scan. Then something prevents Norton's antivirus from starting the scan. Also, the Norton's Icon in my system tray has a red x on it and it says it is disabled. I have contacted Norton's and I do not wish to pay an arm and a leg for assistance as I thought the warranty, on the product which has another 77 days before it expires, would enable me to receive assistance should something sneak around Norton's. Does anyone have any idea as to how to take care of this problem? I went to Microsoft and ran a virus scan in safe mode from their web site but it still did not touch the Spyware.Apropos C which must be embedded somewhere.

Built on a legacy of world-class security products, including Norton Antivirus, Norton Internet Security and Norton 360, our new offering, Norton Security, includes an array of ?defense-in-depth? technologies that have protected our customers for years. These include Network-based defense technologies such as our Firewall and Intrusion Protection System (IPS), File-based defense technologies (traditional core anti-virus capabilities), Reputation-based defense technologies (Insight) and Behavioral-based technologies (SONAR).

Many of these protection technologies have been enhanced and or completely rebuilt from the ground up. The many improvements you get to try out the beta version include:

New look and feel
The most obvious change is the new look and feel of the user interface. Delivering a clean and modern look, the Windows software sets the tone for our latest security offering across multiple operating systems.

Next Generation anti-malware engine
A new real-time malware detection engine fundamentally changes the way traditional file-based antivirus protection is delivered to our customers: Key features of this new engine include:

All of Symantec?s intelligence ? over 4.3 trillion relationships ? now powers all of Norton?s real-time protection. Every time you touch a file, Norton evaluates it against thousands of criteria to determine if it is an attack.

I've tried both AVG Antivirus and Ad-Aware with no luck. Windows Security Center is turned off and when I go to turn it on I get "The Windows Security Center service can't be started". Windows update runs like every time I start up the computer so I don't know if it's having an issue installing whatever it is. Occasionally while online the screen will flash and the taskbar will get messed up (looks like old Windows 95 style).

This has been going on for weeks, the original problem left me with all of my file associations messed including .exe (I think from running CCleaner and scanning/fixing the registry). I downloaded the .exe file association from Microsoft, put it on a jump drive and got it on my computer, fixing that problem, but I think the overall lingering issue remained. If I go to look at my Programs and Features there's only a fraction of the programs I know that I have installed that are shown. Earlier in the week I was trying to fix it, I went to install Microsoft Security Essentials and the computer went to a bluescreen and restarted. I fought with this all night with no luck, the next morning it wouldn't start at all and windows startup repair got it back to status quo (with the viruses like the day before but no blue screen and restart).

Hi guys,

Well the thing is i just recently got Norton security 2015 with backup and all in all it seems like a pretty good piece software however, why is it not blocking any malicious url's(keeping in mind that web filtering is enabled)? I decided to test norton out by putting the security of my entire computer in its hands and visited a few infected websites that i found online and to my surprise norton didn't block any of em. As a matter of fact the only time norton kicked into action was when the malware actually got onto my PC and was being analyzed by hitman pro. Did i just set it up wrong or is there something seriously wrong with norton 2015? Because from the poll that i had set up earlier 7 out of 10 people recommended norton security 2015 over Bitdefender 2015. Now surely norton has to be some good for so many people to select norton over Bitdefender. Would really appreciate some help on this topic because i am really concerned about the security of my PC now
Surely i may have done something worng
(because all i remember doing was allowing Norton to automatically remove low risk files and allowing sonar to automatically remove infected files)
 

A:Internet Security my norton security 2015 not set up right? Its letting malware through.

OUCH...! I'm no expert, but as far as I'm aware Norton is an anti-virus not an anti-malware.
Besides, no AV or AM program/suite is bulletproof - they all have their weaknesses. I would suggest you open a thread on http://malwaretips.com/forums/malware-removal-assistance.10/ and get TwinHeaded Eagle's expert assistance ASAP.
In future, I would leave malware testing to the experts if I was you. It really is for the people who actually know what they are doing.

I have recently bought a new laptop and I installed norton security standard version no backup
And yesterday I got a new license from the avast giveaway that was posted here on MT
I like how little impact has norton on my system but I don't know if it is good enough for detecting PUP and PUA, and this system might not be always connected to the internet (around 80% of the time),
so do you guys think that avast is a better solution or should I keep norton
 

A:Avast internet security 2016 vs Norton security standard

I vote for Norton.
If you change SONAR to agressive you will have better protection against zero-day threats even offline.( despite Sonar requires on-line connection for better heuristic real-time protection. )
Norton is lighter, Its improved performace and, I think if you are 80%of the time not connectec to internet, norton gives you a very good layer of protection

Just finished a reinstall of Windows 10, and I was wondering what the peanut gallery thought of these two programs.

I uninstalled the Norton Security about a month ago while chasing my OS crashing issues. (Norton Security wasn't my problem), but I read good reports, and have relied on Windows defender in the mean time.

Norton Utilities almost always seemed to find registry issues, and I bet if I install Norton Utilities it will find a boat load of issues in the registry, and change things. So I am leery about reinstalling what had been my favorite programs for a lot of years.

Any thoughts?

Interesting, as I've been running Nortons for about the last 8 years now. It has NEVER found a registry error on the 2 computers I'm running it on. I do use CCleaner thou, and let it check for registry errors manually.
I only run Norton Security thou. I do NOT run Norton's Utilities. So maybe you could just run your Norton Security, and not install there Utilities program.

Chosen product will be on max settings
Will use the suite firewall (on max settings)
Will be used along with VodooShield and HitmanPro.Alert

Both are fantastic products, both will give you a very good protection for home use. If you are more advanced user, go for Kaspersky. Norton is more "install and forget", it's less customizable.

My current AV is about to expire so it's time to purchase another year of protection.  I've been running Norton Security with good results but am wondering if I should switch.  Norton as you know is not included in the AV Comparatives but of the paid for choices Kaspersky is rated highly.
 
Can anyone help me decide if I should continue with Norton or make the jump to Kaspersky?
 
Also Amazon has prior year versions of Norton and Kaspersky available for substantial savings. 
 
Will these prior year versions automatically update to the current version when installed?

A:Norton Security Deluxe vs Kaspersky Internet Security

Although Norton (Symantec) is as good as any other well known anti-virus program, it is costly, requires numerous services and running processes that consume system resources and often results in complaints of high CPU usage. Anti-virus software components insert themselves deep into the operating systems core where they install kernel mode drivers that load at boot-up and create files/folders/registry entries in various locations.I have read from other users that Norton has made improvements in newer versions of their software so they are not as resource heavy as past versions...while others still say differently. Those issues plus the cost factor are the primary reason many folks look for a free alternative. IMO, Norton is better utilized in an Enterprise system environment protecting many client computers. With that said, there are a lot of folks who prefer using Norton (especially if it came preinstalled) and there is nothing wrong with staying with a product you are satisfied with.Norton Security Standard, Deluxe and Premium (formerly Norton Internet Security) are suites which means they include additional features in addition to anti-virus protection. Some of those extra features will also consume resources and affect performance. Symantec Endpoint Protection includes many of the same features but is intended for small businesses with several computers and servers.I'm not an advocate of suites. All-in-one tools and suites are filled with extra features (including "bells... Read more

The third candidate in our Security for Everyone series is Norton Internet Security 2010. Symantec's technological stars are Quorum and SONAR2, two technologies that are hoped to push the efficiency of the new security suite to the limit. Quorum uses input from the many users of Symantec products to build a reputation rating for any file that may be encountered in order to better assert its maliciousness. SONAR2 analyzes the behavior of programs to detect any threads. In this review, we will see if these two technologies, along with Norton Internet Security's other features, are as good as they sound.

I have tried online shopping but anything I find has either MacAfee products for security & protection or something else, but nothing I found comes without security software and nothing I found comes with Norton Security.  I am trying to find a low-priced notebook/laptop computer either without any security software or with Norton Security.  Is this possible?   (O.S. must be Windows 10).

A:want either NO security software, or pre-installed Norton Security

Security software comes bundled with any computer (these days) based upon the recognized need for such...and the fact that there is a partnership between system manufacturers and security software vendors that facilitates the install of unwanted software on any OEM system.  This is done in spite of the fact that Microsoft provides security software as part of any O/S that is more recent than XP.
 
Any unwanted software or bloatware which a user may find on any purchased OEM system...can be uninstalled from the system via the mechanism which Windows employs for eliminating such.

Either way both product are excellent.
There're plenty of threads with Norton or ESET comparing with the rest. You can refer to those threads for their pros and cons and then decide which one u prefer (unless u want us to choose for you).

If your deal-breaker solely by cost wise, ummm, Norton usually have good deal in Amazon, Newegg or stuff. ESET, not that frequent I've seen.

Hi All,
I have Zone Alarm Pro as my firewall, and Norton 2003 as my Anti virus. I probably should update my anti virus but was thinking about purchasing the Zone Alarm Security Suite and then add a spyware program. The one thing I do have trouble dealing with, using Zone Alarm Pro is that I use a VPN to login to my employer's client systems (different IPs depending on the client's sites). I can't have Zone Alarm Pro up and running when I login. I'm a bit of a newbie when it comes to firewalls and because I'm a contractor I do not receive much help from the employer so not sure if Norton Security Suite would be a little more user friendly when it comes to adding IPs that I login to.

Any opinions on ZA or Norton SS would be greatly appreciated, as well as any input with using VPN with firewalls.

Thanks in advance,
