Norton 360 2.0

Good day everyone,

I've recently installed Norton 360 2.0 using Vista OS. All appears to have been installed successfully.

I'm having a problem with scanning though. When I go to run a scan, it looks like it's starting up scan then where it shows running, all fields then immediately go to, "cancelled" and the scan doesn't even get going.

Any one have any idea?

In their Norton 360 forums:

I'm seeing similar report/issue and the possible fix are:
1. Run LiveUpdate manually then install any available updates
2. Cleanup the temporary files

If any of these don't help, please report it to Symantec via the aboce forums. They might ask for some logs to check what's going on with your Norton 360.

Hello it's Norton 360 version 2.0 upgrade.

Is that v2.3.0.9 or earlier?

You can check the version by click "Help" > "About"

Please try to do the steps I mentioned in my first reply by updating and cleaning the temporary files.

Then try to scan again and see if you could scan.

Norton Internet Security 2007?

If yes, please uninstall Norton 360 by using the Norton Removal Tool. You can download this tool at http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039
The tool will remove Norton 360 and any remnants of Norton Internet Security 2007.

Important: Please save your Product Key before running the tool.

Reboot after it finished removing Norton 360.

Fresh install Norton 360 v2

Thanks I'll give the uninstall a try and see how it goes. I hate that it's going to eat one of my "install on 3 computer" numbers though during reinstall.

No, it should not "use" one of your right to install on 3 PCs. Their server will be able to identify your hardware fingerprint when you sync your subscription. You can also chat with Symantec support to confirm this.

Thanks for all your help. I followed your suggestion by using the removal tool, followed its prompts. System rebooted and reinstallation by the system began on startup. Scanning DOES work now.

Thanks again for your help.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
