What about removing Norton?
When it expires all sorts of odd things happen. Why not a free AV if money is the issue?
What About Removing Norton
I still have till Nov 2011 on my Norton. And I have Spybot as well.. but I can't download any updates or Norton Eraser. I'm unable to download any AV anything.. thats what I'm saying is, I'm unable to download anything. My
It's Teatimer continues to create conflicts. You may have to uninstall Spybot and Teatimer.
Sorry if I don't write it again why.
Downloads freezing up at 99%
Still didn't work... downloads still freezing up at 99% download
You have to decide.
If it's worth fixing. We know that Norton inspects the downloads which is a good thing until it breaks.
1. Try another browser.
2. Dump Norton.
You Have To Decide ?
Thank you Bob for your help.
I bought MalwareBytes last night waiting for the backup hard copy to be delivered. I use Internet Explorer to access online. And Google as my homepage and Norton 360 as my search engine. So when you say browser are you talking about Internet Explorer? And if so how do I get online if I remove Explorer ? It"s part of my Windows XP.
Re: Internet Explorer
Don't remove it. Just download and install another. Firefox and Chrome are free.
Find a PC that CAN download, copy to your USB-drive, and install from there. Then try the new browser.
If Foxfire is (Full Size 13.33 MB) and I need to copy it to my USB-drive..
What size Flash Memory SanDisk do I need. 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 32GB... ?
There go 1000 MB into 1 GB. So there go about 70 Firefoxes (not foxfires) in 1 GB. That's 280 in 4 GB, 560 in 8 GB and so on.
So I would say any suffices for this purpose.
But you might like to use it for other purposes in the future?
"Norton 360 as my search engine. "
I agree with Kees here. But letting Norton integrate with IE is going to be trouble for some machines. We are talking about XP and Symantec so while some get upset about this, you are on a very old OS with companies doing a poorer job everyday supporting this OS.
I'd use another browser for a test run if you can't bring yourself to try this without Symantec products.
Unable To Complete a Download of New or Update Software
I'm unable to download anything. My Norton 360 is good till Nov 2011 and I have spybot, but I can't download any updates or any new free AV. All attemps fall short at 99% downloaded then freeze.
