Looking to Replace Norton.

Q: Looking to Replace Norton.

Hi All,

This is my first post here on the forum. I've been using Norton AV for the past year or so. Due to the fact that my internet provider freely offers it as a bonus for being a customer, but I feel that it's just way to resources hungry. Taking up much needed disk space, not to mention it's high cup usage and annoying pop-up's.

Would anyone be able to offer me any alternatives, when replacing Norton's bloated software. To help give my machine it's much needed protection?

Regards.

Preferred Solution: Looking to Replace Norton.

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Looking to Replace Norton.

As far as Norton still using a lot resources and high CPU usage, not so true nowadays as older version might of been this way.
Using Norton Security not causing me any issues or using a lot of resources or CPU, see here. As far as cost of it might not want to spend 40-50 bucks to renew it as many other AV out there that are good and cheaper. Norton does get decent rating on detection, i have no issues with popups as can be turned off, this is probably due to yours is also expiring.

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,

I'm running a dual boot with norton internet security 08 on XP and Avast and comodo with defence plus on Vista.

I was looking into either the eset security suite or the zone alarm security suite...mainly because with norton on XP ahem..vista runs faster. Oh and it's a pain sometimes with it checking for updates even though auto update is off.

I was going to go for the zone alarm suite but read alot off ppl were having major slow down....and I also read the nod32 suite had a bad firewall.......argh.

Oh not to mention PCmag recommends norton 08 as the best:
http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2231625,00.asp

but then this conflicts:
http://www.matousec.com/projects/firewall-challenge/results.php ...I know it only relates to firewalls.

Any help would be great
 

A:I'm looking to replace norton ...ZA....eset....?????

I've used NOD32 on all of my business and home computers exclusively for over 3 years. Before that, I had been a Norton user since v. 1.0 (yep, the DOS original). You won't ever find 100% agreement among various testers, but I think Virus Bulletin has the most rigorous standards of any testing organization. You need to create a free user account to log on and look at the test archives, but you'll be able to check out years of test results for almost all vendors. The VB100 Awards are a terrific resource.

Hi all The laptop in question is a Toshiba Satellite A -S A few weeks ago it got dropped right on its adapter? Replace the replace the or jack power corner Replace the power jack or replace the adapter? with the power plug still in it the little metal plug of the AC adapter is now slightly crooked and the power jack has a little chip off the plastic part of it Anyway after this mishap it worked fine for another weeks and then suddenly this week it s refusing to power up Its battery has been shot for a while can t hold a charge and I ve been using it with the battery out Why the sudden refusal to boot I took the whole thing apart---minus the little chip the power jack looks totally fine and cosmetically sound Put the whole thing back together taking care to check that plugs were snug---still no power Stuck in the crappy battery booted just fine and then shut itself down after like minutes How likely is it that it s the power jack which is broken And why did it take this long to crap out if it IS broken A new one of those silly jacks costs over on eBay so I want to make sure that it s the jack before I just up and buy one Of course if it s the AC adapter that s broken that would cost even more Bah Input nbsp

A:Replace the power jack or replace the adapter?

AND/OR inside the case the the jack is soldered directly to the motherboard. Is also possible that
1) It's already cracked
2) If not yet, it's gonna crack

So look to see what connection looks like between power jack and motherboard, If you feel u wanna/can re-solder yourself or the typically price to redo the whole power thing seems to run $125 parts/labor/warranty if you take it somewhere. So how much is it all worth to you?

For some reason W7 has decided to change 'Copy and Replace' with 'Move and Replace' when picking a file up with the left mouse and dragging it to another folder where an old version of the file exists.

My Excel SS is in two places: My desktop and USB which I use for backup. I would simply open the folder on the USB pick up the file on the desktop with the left mouse and drag it to the USB folder. Then I would get the message 'Copy and Replace'.. But not anymore it's become 'Move and Replace'.

I know I can 'Copy and Replace' by holding down the Ctrl key but I dont want to.

It looks like there should be a simple answer

Can anyone help? I swear I didnt change anything.

A:How can I 'Copy and Replace' not 'Move and Replace'.

Hi,
Have you ever tried right click drag and drop ?
There will be a list option after you drop,

Corsair DDR mem Radeon X GTO Iceturbo Thermaltake w power supply Maxtor gb Maxline III WD Raptor GB Creative Audigy ZS I have not had the guts to take anything out and test them individually But has anyone had or heard of this problem before What could it be about the motherboard that would also make the PSU make that noise Is it just a safety mechanism of the PSU SOS nbsp

A:To replace or not to replace.. that is the question.

Hi and welcome to Techspot!!

Test the RAM sticks individually. One of them might be bad. You can use Memtest86 to try them out.

Also, try them in different memory slots. That sometimes helps.

Regards :wave:

BTW, Great thread title

Well, about a month ago, I switched from Norton anti-virus, which came with the computer to Norton Internet Security,(which also comes with a firewall), I am finding it seems,anyway to be a lot better. It covers a lot more bases, especially with protection while online. It updates alot more than anti-virus did and the only security problems I find during scans are cookies.

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. Even using Instant Messaging clients can present a security risk.Using Facebook can be hazardous to your computer.'Ramnit' worm eats up 45,000 Facebook user loginsFacebook Password Reset Scam Threatens Computers WorldwideNew Spam Targeting Facebook Users Is Invisible to Most Virus ScansPassword-stealing virus targets FacebookKoobface Worm Attacks Facebook and MySpace UsersNew Variant of Koobface Worm Spreading on FacebookDetails of 100 million Facebook users published onlineBest Practices for Safe Computing - Prevention

So, could someone give me the exact procedure to remove Norton and all it’s components… and please, take a brief look at my signature, you are not dealing with the Einstein of computer technologies…

We need to talk a little bit. You have the Clearsearch browser hijacker on board, so thoise first five entries can be fixed by HJT.

The next three entries are related to Gator. Gator is adware, "phone home" type. It is often installed along with free software. This is often disclosed in the fine print of those softwares. If you delete Gator, the free software will sometimes not work anymore. I would not have Gator on my system, and I am sure that others here would agree with me. However, this is your choice.

Do you recognize the proxy server/over-ride entries. If you do, leave them alone.

Open a new HJT log, check all of the entries that you want fixed, then with all explorer and browser windows closed, tell HJT to fix them.

Reboot.

If you are getting rid of Gator, go to Add/Remove programs and remove the program.

Find and delete the following files:

C:\Program Files\\ClearSearchLoader.exe (folder)

C:\Program Files\Common Files\\CMEIICMESys.exe (Look for the folder.it might already be gone).

C:\Program Files\Common Files\GMT\GMT.exe (Look for the folder.it might already be gone).

Please post a new HJT log so that we can make sure that we got everything.

Good hunting!

I have Windows 2000 and have been working with Microsoft Online Tech Support to solve some problems. I sent them an MPS Report and they told me they noticed many Norton Internet Security Service service related error messages. They told me to temporarily uninstall the Norton Internet Security program. I did so, and they have now told me to reinstall it. I DON'T KNOW HOW TO DO THIS. All I see on the Symantec website is "purchase" and if I call them they want to charge me for tech support. Can someone help me? When you reply, please understand that I am computer illiterate.

I'm confused as to what the benefits are of Ghost 10 over Save and Restore. The description of Save and Restore says it contains everything Ghost 10 does, plust more stuff. But they sell at the same price. Why would anyone want to buy Ghost 10?

Just want to make sure I fully understand what the products are offering.

I have Norton Internet Security which includes Firewall and Live Update is on and all products are up to date. On the Symantec web site there is a Security Scan test which I thought my computer would easily pass. However I was shocked when I was informed that I was "At Risk" due to "Hacker Exposure". The Ports which failed the test were ICMP, 22 and 80.
I have checked the configuration of my Firewall and I cannot see what I can do to improve my security. It seems strange that Norton would have a test which their own product fails so I have to assume that I can do something else with my Firewall. Does anybody have any ideas. Thanks. Roger

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.

Hello,

My Laptop has had Systemworks for 2 years. I know it greatly slows boot up and shut down. If I just install Norton antivirus, will I see a big change in above times? (Systemworks has so many components I never use) Last week I asked for alternatives to Norton that are not "resource intensive". Any other ideas?

Thanks,
Jeff
 

A:Norton Antivirus vs Norton Systemworks

I personally don't like any norton products, and I would recommend a free alternatives. A good free firewall is ZoneAlarm, and antivirus AVG.

If you would rather other good tho pay (i personally like these - get the mcafee internet essentials; viruscanner and firewall).

Other software exists.

A:Norton running but I don't have Norton

I closed Norton window. There's a "Norton Security Scan" icon on my desktop that never was there before. I did a search for Norton and found that the file had been created just the day before my original post.

It's been a week now, and I've been on the alert for anymore Norton stuff happening. Sure enough, today Norton pops up doing an update. I cancelled the update, but the window remained...status bar still running...continued to say "cancelling"...but never did stop. I closed it with task manager. I didn't try to remove any Norton files.

I did 2 online scans, and ran all my antispyware programs but didn't come up with anything major.

Is this anything to worry about?

Hi, I have a question with E-mail.
I was wondering if after the 2 years I've had this computer if I should change from my Yahoo! & Gmail accounts to Windows Mail, if that's possible.
What are the pro's and con's of switching to Windows Mail?

A:Should I Replace...

Hi Rance, I am unsure about Yahoo but you can access Gmail via Windows Mail. To use Windows mail you still need a provider whether it be your internet provider or the likes of Gmail so i dont see any reason to change anything except enabling your provider from within Windows mail. Here is a tutorial on enabling pop gmail within windows mail

Hello prissyellowsmom, Welcome to TSF!

Without a Retail version of a Windows? XP Home? SP2 CD, there is absolutely nothing you can do.
The only solution would be to go to a reputable Computer Store and purchase one.

Sorry there's no magical cure.

Hi all,

I've got a little bit of a dilemma here, I've got a 3.5year old Dell 8300 with the following specs:

3GHz P4
1GB Ram
X700 Pro
225W PSU (or thats what i suspect)
Ive got a standard PCI slot.

The issue is whether to replace whole thing and get Kentfield extreme with 8800GTX obviously spend will be around £1800 for base unit or to replace graphics card (and probably PSU) and wait for Yorkfield chips later in the year, which are expected to be cheaper to produce with more speed and lower power consumption. It's just id like to play some games even with minimal detail during the year (well except Crysis which would give my system processor failure just at the sight of the box).

What would people recommend and on graphics card front what replacement would offer best value for money given my system.

Many Thanks

I just this replace Should it is before we buy a new drive Any ideas If the drive is not bootable now is it worth trying the PartitionMagic disc I m sure the disc I put in before was just a backupdisc that wasn t bootable and had the program s setupfiles on it Thanks in advance nbsp

Hi, I am planning to purchase HP Envy 15-AE116TX and upgrade the hard drive from HDD to SSD. I will buy the SSD separately.  However, so as not to void the warranty, I should take it to HP service center and let them do the job. My question is, how much should I pay for the service? I have been calling HP service center hotline (02) 867-3551 and even the direct line to Makati service center (02) 888-6100 but nobody dared to pick up the phone. Is this the kind of after sales service that HP offers? Anyways, I am willing to go to service center but I would like to know exactly how much they will charge me.  And I have to make sure that it won't void the warranty of the laptop. Hoping for your immediate response.

I bought a new 400w psu with my new case. (my mother board had been flakey with lower watt models and wanted to be safe.) It runs great however the fan is a little loud and I'm looking to quiet it down. I was going to replace it with an Enermax 80mm since they're speed ajustable and quiet. I don't come close to using all the connectors provided. I run a CDR, DVD, HDD, floppy and two case fans off of it. Would it be safe to replace it with a potentially lower RPM model like the enermax?

Hello, On my motherboard this morning when removing a faulty graphics card, the little white clamp at the end of the pci express slot broke. Is there anyway to replace or fix this? I was thinking of gluing it somehow but the last thing I need is for the glue to melt and cause more problems than it solved. If it involves sending it off to a technician does anyone know the avg cost to replace the white clamp or complete pci express slot? If you need more info on what type of pci-express slot it is it was holding a nvidia7900 gtx OC. I'm hoping I didn't just ruin the whole motherboard.
 

A:Anyway to fix/replace?

I don't think that can be fixed. I've never really seen this happen so I don't know for sure but I think u will need a new mobo.

A:Replace hdd with SDD

See the following video list for removal and replacement of the hard disk. ( hard drive assembly)http://h20574.www2.hp.com/results.htm?SID=10862166&MEID=9E11075D-744F-4986-ACA1-547A14CA1B03 What you will need is a SATA mobile 2.5" SSD to replace the legacy spinner hard wisk with. I highly recommend that you replace it by cloning the current disk to the new one.  That is the simplest method. See the sticky I created  in this section  of the forum for details on how that is done.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/How-to-upgrade-your-notebook-to-a-SATA-2-5-quot-SSD/td-p/4563352/jump-to/first-unread-message An SSD of 256 GB or higher capacity is recommended as a replacement for the legacy hard disk currently installed. An SSD of 256 GB or higher capacity will allow for use of the Recovery media that you created with the HP Recovery Media Creator utility. See the following links at NewEgg.com to see what will work. You can only use SATA, SATAII and SATAIII interface SSD disks. None of the other interface types are compatible with your notebook's systemboard and BIOS !!! http://www.newegg.com/Internal-SSDs/SubCategory/ID-636?Tid=11693

A:What should I replace?

For what it will cost you to upgrade it to play games, I would just suggest saving for a new computer.

First, you'll need to install a video card. If the model you have is in a micro-tower, it's not likely you'll be able to find a video card to fit.

Second, you would want to upgrade the processor. Even though it's apparently dual-core, it's still extremely slow.

Third, you would want to upgrade to 4GB of RAM.

And then to support it all, you'd likely need a new power supply.

So like I said...your best option would be to clean that up, sell it, and buy a new computer when you get the money.

Have a friend with a 9-month-old Dell Inspiron laptop who's had nothing but problems with Win XP. We've deleted the main partition and reinstalled XP, but problem (inability to maintain a modem connection) persists. It may be just a bad modem, and Dell is sending a new one, but he just doesn't like XP, and asked if it's possible to put Win 98 on the computer. I use Win 98, so am not familiar with XP, but know that XP uses NTFS instead of a FAT, and can't find anything that says whether or not it's possible to reformat the drive for a FAT-based Win 98 system. Is it, and if so, how (i.e., can I just boot to the command prompt, type "format c:", and hit enter)?

A:Need to replace RAM?

You can boot from the Vista DVD and run the Memory Test to see if it has any memory errors. From there you can decide if you need to replace the RAM. You could also reseat the RAM (take it out, put it back in making sure it is in good).

I don't wanna replace both but i do have a $200 budget or so for an upgrade. I heard from someone that my cpu isn't the best but it can still hold up. While my gpu is really outdated and not good. With my current combo i'm able to play most games on highest quality, but for newer games like the witcher 3 and so on, i can barely run it. I was gonna get the geforce gtx 960, thinking that may help my performance. Here are my specs

My specs:

AMD A8-5600K APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics (4 CPUs), ~3.6GHz
8192MB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 4B DDR3 memory
1 TB HDD

Hi SSD with Replace HDD there My old computer is very slow and the HDD makes a lot of noise all the time particularly the C drive so I thought I Replace HDD with SSD d replace it with an SSD The computer has physical disks of approximately GB each and partitions all primary C is where the OS and most program files are stored D has all the multimedia files and docs and E GB is unused So my plan was to remove D temporarily connect the SSD clone the C drive to the SSD Then finally I was Replace HDD with SSD going to swap the old C drive HDD with the new C drive SSD add back the D drive and voila Even though the D drive is pretty slow it doesn t bother me Replace HDD with SSD as long as it s just a storage drive But the problem arose at step i e swap the nd hard disk with the SSD Regardless of which of the hard disks I disconnect the system won t boot What I get is a failed status in relation to RAID ID This is confusing I assume only one of the HDD s is actually bootable i e drive C isn t that correct If that s the case then why can t I simply swap drive D Regards Al nbsp

I have Windows 64 Bit installed on an SSD Drive. I am running out of Disk space. I have heard that I can make a Image of my existing SSD and import into a new SSD. How do I do this?

A:Replace SSD

Go into control panel>backup and restore and save a disk image to your internal hard drive or an external hard drive. replace the ssd, then just use your windows install disc to put the image back on the new ssd. It`s that easy.

Hi,

I ask because I purchased a Lenovo laptop (Ideapad 580N) that came pre-installed with Windows 8 which is a nightmare. I recently upgraded to 8.1 because it supposedly had some Win 7 features, instead, it has been worse than Win 8. I've never removed one Win OS and replaced it with another and I have not purchased the Win 7 OS software yet. Is there anything I should know beforehand? HATE is a strong word, but it's the only word appropriate as to my feelings of Win 8 and if possible, I would like to get back to Win 7 asap. Thank you.

Hi......simple question i have a hp pav 8984 with a cd burner......sometimes when i use the burner the computer turns of for no apparent reason..the i have to wait a few hours before i can switch it back on.....but i've been thinking i dont hear the fan anymore and at the back it gets a bit hot....should i replace the fan???? probably a stupid question....but could be something totally different...
 

A:Do i need to replace the fan????

Which fan?

If its the power supply fan, its essential. If you cook the power supply, the HP only replacements are very expensive, and standard ones usually do not fit.

A:should i replace my HD?

I don`t think you should replace you hard drive just yet.

The fact that you`re getting lots of different stop messages, could be a symptom of faulty ram.

Download the memtest86+ programme from www.memtest.org.

If you don`t have a floppy drive, there is an iso version that you can burn to cd, and then boot from that.

Let the programme run for at least seven passes.

When I installed Win 8 Pro on an old laptop with Win 7 32-bit (dual boot configuration), I do not remember seeing an option for installing either the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows 8. My System shows I have 64-bit and I am having trouble locating video drivers for my 6 year old Toshiba Satellite laptop. I found people with a similar problem on an NVidia forum and they put together a 32-bit driver version that supposedly works. I did not mean to install the 64-bit version. Is there a way to do a reinstall, but this time select Win 8 32-bit? Is there an option for it If I just do a clean reinstall?

A:How to replace Win 8 Pro 64-bit with Win 8 Pro 32-bit?

Hello Stan, and welcome to Eight Forums.

The installation of either a 32-bit or 64-bit Windows 8 is dependent on if the installation media is 32-bit or 64-bit.

If you like, you can use the tutorial below to download a 32-bit Windows 8 ISO file from within any 32-bit Windows computer that you can use to create a bootable installation DVD or USB with.

At random, XP will restart on its own. The computer was built less than 2 years ago and I'm not quite sure if it's a software or hardware issue. AMD 2600+, 1.9 ghz, 512mb RAM, windows XP, radeon 9600 graphics card.

I find the computer crashes when it's put under a heavy workload. For instance, I opened Spy Bot S&D to rule out any infections and within 30 seconds of running the application the computer restarted. This occured back to back just moments ago. Other times I am using WORD or browsing. This has been occuring for more than 4 months now.

I've ran a CPU application to max it out and again the computer restarts. It occurs everytime I run the program.

I also monitored my RAM while it performed and only 50% was being utilized.

How do I know it's the CPU and not the Motherboard or HD?

Thanks!
 

A:Do I need to replace my CPU?

Spobot Killed the Computer in the Den with the Fireplace Poker

This isn't "Clue" we're paying, you say?

Spybot uses 100% of the CPU. Your box could be entering thermal cutoff.
Use canned air to clean out the CPU/ heatsink, and just for good measure the rest of the insides as well.
Find out if your board has hardware monitoring and find what the critical zone temperatures are. You may have to install either the board manufacturers monitoring software or a utility like "Speedfan', available here at Techspot.

Sounds as though it thinks it's needs starting from a network and that would make me wonder if it's been taken over remotely so when you do get it started, it might have a major malware infection. Tap the Delete, Function 2 or whichever other key you need to go into BIOS or Setup and seek out Boot Options or similar and make sure the order is set to boot from hard disk first.

Lately, I have been getting computer crashes where my monitor loses a signal from the computer, the gpu fan goes to 100%, and my computer becomes unresponsive (shutdown keyboard command doesn't work). This happens more and more often, to the point where it crashes before the computer can even post. However, when I open up the computer and jiggle around the connections, sometimes pulling out cords and re-plugging them in, this seems to completely fix the problem, until a couple days pass and the process repeats. I am certain I have a loose connection somewhere, but I'm not sure where. Should I replace the power supply or the motherboard? Or could something else be causing the issue? Thank you for any help!

I would start with swapping in a known good pw supply. While the case is open, get a bright light and give the mb a VERY close inspection. Look for any capacitors that look like the pics below.

You will have to match the electrical connector as well so check how many pins are in the board socket.
You may have to use some force to disconnect the present fan's power cable from the GPU board.
It is a plug/socket connection isn't it ?

A:Do I need to replace the HD?

Maybe not. Lets focus on your "low voltage problem". Bad power can cause data corruption. Bad power can also permanently kill off hardware, such as a hard drive. We need to first establish if you solved your power issues, and how.

Did you replace the Power Supply? If so, please post manufacturer, model # and rated power output of your current PSU. If not, post the voltages as reported in BIOS.

ocz and kingston both do well priced 480gb drives
you could do one of two things after installing the SSD, 1) buy a 2.5" 3.5" external dock or a 2.5" enclosure for the hard drive

As for a backup i would let someone else here have a hand in this!

Personally i would buy a Network Attached Storage (NAS) something like a WD cloud drive and do a clean install of the OS on the SSD
