Is Your Browser Locked By An Administrator?
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / January 7, 2009 1:52 AM PST

There are third party programs which use a Lock Code to place restrictions on the computer's web browsers.. If such is the case, then you'll nee to talk to the administrator of the computer regarding access.

If that's not the case, then please give us more information about the specific third party program which is being used and your exact circumstances.

Hope this helps.

Norton's Activation Code Comes From Symantec
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / January 8, 2009 1:27 AM PST

As mentioned by Kees, you have to call Symantec, provide them with your Norton Antivirus 2007 hardware code, and then Symantec people will generate an unlock code according to the hardware code that you?ve given to them. After you entered the unlock code to activate Norton Antivirus 2007, you?ll get a screen saying Activation Complete.

We don't give out cracks and such on these forums so a discussion of such is beyond our forum policies.

Hope this helps.

Norton isn't the only one. There are even good free ones.

Re: free antivirus
by Kees Bakker / January 8, 2009 9:14 PM PST

Products recommended on our Spyware, Viruses and Security forum (link at left) are Avast!, AVG and Avira. I don't have links for you to click on, but you'll easily find them using google, I suppose, using a search argument like DOWNLOAD FREE XXX.

Beware: there are fake antivirus programs also. One of them is called XP Antivirus 2008 or XP Antivirus 2009. Most of the posts you'll find about that program are discussing how to remove it! But the above three are reliable.

If you need confirmation or more advice, please visit the forum I mentioned above.
