is the free MSFT anti-virus program worthwhile?

Preferred Solution: When Norton Internet Security expires....

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 recently purchased a new Dell computer with a "complimentary copy" of Norton Anti-virus 2002. My "complimentary" subscription is now over. One option is to pay a fee to keep subscribed to their service. But I already purchased a copy of Norton Anti-virus 2002 on cd to install on this computer. So what do I do now? Do I have to uninstall this "complimentary" copy of Norton through add/remove programs and then install the cd with it? Can the cd just be installed over this program without first deleting the "complimentary"? I just need to know the right thing to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

hello

I run Windows Vista on my laptop, which is almost a year old. When i first got it, i installed Norton Internet Security as my antivirus and it has worked fairly well (although i had a huge problem with Brontok virus last year, but that's been cleared up now).

My Norton subscription expires in a couple weeks and i'm considering switching to a free antivirus program that can be found online, like AVG, BitDefender or Avast. is this a bad idea? will i be compromising my laptop's security? any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Dee.My Norton subscription expires in a couple weeks and i'm considering switching to a free antivirus program that can be found online, like AVG, BitDefender or Avast. is this a bad idea? will i be compromising my laptop's security? any feedback would be greatly appreciated.In what terms or why do you think it may be compromising your laptop's security by switching to a different anti-virus software? I'm not being mean or anything I'm just asking as to know what you think and why?My response would be No. Switching anti-virus softwares doesn't compromise your security at all. In fact, it doesn't alter with the security. There are different anti-virus softwares out there that have different "signatures" or their own definition of what they think/believe is "bad" or malicious and is why some anti-virus softwares detect certain things and some don't. Doesn't mean one is worse than another. Switching anti-virus softwares is never a bad thing but you should always have one installed at a time and before uninstalling your old one you should download the new one first on to your computer before you uninstall your old one. You should also dis-connect from the internet after you uninstalled your old one. Not saying that you'll be infected immediately after you have no anti-virus protection but it's good and safe practice.Some good free anti-virus softwares I recommend are:An anti-virus is essential in keeping your computer safe while surfing the Internet.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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. )

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.

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

I would like to get some opinions regarding Bitdefender Internet Security vs. Norton Internet Security.
I've been around computers a long time and I know that every time you turn around there's a new "king of the hill" when it comes to Security Software so I realize that things can change rapidly so I'm going to take any information with a grain of salt. At this point I have not evaluated Security software in the last few years but I'm thinking that now might be a opportune time to do so.

Right now I have Norton Internet Security installed on both my laptop and my desktop PC and I have several months left on my subscription. I have noticed that on my laptop I've had some issues with restarts (i.e. black screen with circling white dots) after a Norton Patch and sometimes after Microsoft Updates. Another person on another forum said that he ditched Norton and his similar restart problems went away but he opted to go with the Microsoft solution which I don't trust. From what I understand Bitdefender is pretty good at protecting ones system but I would really like to know (A) is it as good or better than Norton all around and (B) is system performance any better under Bitdefender? If Bitdefender is that much better than Norton I would buy a copy of Bitdefender Internet Security and ditch Norton but I need to be sure that I would not be shooting myself in the foot. Thanks.

Users of the world's second best* browser were forced to use alternatives after an overnight update to Norton AntiVirus prevented Internet Explorer from working at all.

Aggrieved users who'd thought far enough ahead to install Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or any of the other alternatives took to Norton's official forum to vent their spleens.
"Sometime this evening, IE11 started crashing. In fact, it crashed an already-open browsing session, and now trying to start it up just instantly causes a 'Internet Explorer Has Stopped Working' error," wrote support forum contributor Sunfox, sparking an 11-page thread.

Forumites shortly figured out that an update to Norton Internet Security 360 had broken something critical relating to IE, with monkeynuts posting:

I have uninstalled NIS and IE started working. Then reinstalled NIS, and once the patch was deployed IE started crashing again.
Tales of woe, heartbreak and downloads of new browsers spread, until about 0400 GMT, at which point a member of Symantec staff posted: "Kindly run manual live update (right click on Norton icon on tray notification area > 'Run live update ')," helpfully adding "Kindly stop using work-arounds."

At which point all seemed to be well, judging by the forum posts from then on. Various Reg readers whose machines had auto-updated overnight then wrote to us to let us know what had happened.

Hello. This is not my first time posting on bleepingcomputer, but the last time I had a problem was so long ago I have forgotten the account details. However I was so impressed by the help I received, I thought I should come here again if I ever suspected anything might be amiss with my PC. Speaking of which:
 
I have recently had an unfortunate sequence of events  over the past two days, and I'm unsure if it's just a group of unrelated problems or if they're connected somehow.
I have also left various windows updates waiting to be installed for an embarrassingly long time, which helps lead me to suspect I might have left a backdoor open somehow.
 
 
The sequence of events are thus:
 
12th of july
 
Painfully slow broadband on the 12th of july, suspected to be issues with my ISP. They apparently were performing maintenance on the 11th, but had also finished.
Malwarebytes very slow to update due to aforementioned broadband woes
Internet issues appeared to fix themselves later in the night.
 
 
 
13th of july
 
Broadband drops to half of the speed of the night before, and fluctuates lower still throughout the day.
Malwarebytes suddenly unable to update, sending me an error message that I have currently forgotten. Something along the lines of "Program_error_updating (0,0,I/O error)" (Not the exact words, will update if I can find it exactly)
After a reboot, malwarebytes was now ignoring attempts at updating... Read more

Sorry - this was posted under Windows XP, but maybe it fits better under security.

Help - My PC has Windows XP and I have been using Norton Internet Security 2004 for about 3 months and all has been well. Until about the last week. Suddenly, it appeared as if the program was no longer functioning.

When launching the program, it would indicate that there was an error and that nothing (Anti-Virus, Firewall, Parental Security, etc.) was active. After doing some troubleshooting, I determined I needed to uninstall the program, but somehow I can not because I am not considered to be the person authorized to do so - supervisor access required (something got corrupted here because I was the supervisor).

So the final fix is to edit the registry through a download from Symantec's website, but I can not access any website that is either secure or requires me to download anything (patch, etc.). I simply get a message saying that the page can not be displayed, and/or the download just hangs.

Obviously my IE settings have somehow been corrupted, but due to NIS being corrupted, I can't edit any settings. So I'm caught in a circle - I can't uninstall the program or download anything to help me do it.

Any ideas on how I can either get rid of this program or connect fully to the internet?

Thanks

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out what is wrong with my Norton Internet Security and/or Internet Explorer....

Both have been working fine up to now, but now all of a sudden, when I open Norton and try to select Norton Anti-Spam from the menu, I get the following Internet Explorer Script Error:-

Line: 15
Char: 1
Error: Object expected
Code: 0
Url: res://C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\AntiSpam\asRes.LOC/nasstatus.htm

Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?

Whether I click yes or no, it returns to the Anti-Spam page and says "Refreshing" next to each Anti-Spam feature. When I try to click on any of the features, I get another script error.

The reason I need to access the Anti-Spam section is because for some reason, ads are appearing on sites even though I have the Norton Ad Blocker on. I need to get into the Anti-Spam to check the status of the ad blocker, but it won't let me get any further than the daft script error!

Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks guys!

Update: Sorted it. After installing some Norton and IE updates it seems to be okay now....sorry for starting such a pointless thread!

I bought a p.c for my son last year. It came with 3 month norton internet security.Now he cant access the internet at all. P.C world say it's because norton has expired. He cant remember any passwords, and so cant change/uninstall norton (which is what P.C. world advise). Because he cant access the internet, he cant download any tools to uninstall. Anybody got any ideas ?

Symantec provide a tool to uninstall 2004/5/6 products (it's actually three separate files); http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPOR...sf&view=docid&dtype=&prod=&ver=&osv=&osv_lvl= Perhaps you or someone else could d/l them and burn them to a CD/DVD?

I assume that it would be possible to get a replacement antivirus and firewall to install in the same way. Have a look at the 'Security Help Tools' thread that is pinned at the top of this Forum

NIS is currently bombarding me with requests to perform a Live Update, but when I try to do that, the following message appears:
"Connection to ISP failed. Live Update could not connect to your Internet Service Provider. Verify your dial-up information is correct."
I am not having any other problem with the internet, all other sites load as normal.
My browser is Netscape 7.1, and I use Free-online as my ISP. My OS is Win2000 Pro.
Can anyone please help?

Would recommend to uninstall/reinstall the application first. If that does correct the problem, then:

Please download HijackThis. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Run a scan and save the log file. Post the whole log file here. Do not fix anything since most of them listed there are harmless (some are system required). This program will help us determine if there is any spyware/malware on your computer.

Hi,

I've noticed that Norton Internet Security tends to change some advanced IE settings to "read-only." This is running a Vista machine accessing some intranet servers with company-issued certificate. Unfortunately, no access can be granted because it keeps fail against CRL check (I am unable to un-check Check for Server Certficate Revocation under Advanced tab). Any idea about how to modify Norton Internet Security's behavior not to interfere with the browser settings?

Thanks.

I have this Norton program that has a firewall on it, and I have to temporarily turn it off everytime I play Maplestory, or else it won't connect. Well, today I went to do so, and the Norton Protection Center window never loads all the way, and I can't turn the fire wall off. So I figure, I'll just uninstall it and reinstall it, see if that does the trick. I went to uninstall it and it says I can't because I'm not logged in as an administrator in the Protection Center. So uhm, is there anyway to get rid of it? I tried going into the program files and deleting up, but I got the same notice...
