I am resurrecting my daughters PC. I updated to Windows 10 and everything is great except for eliminating Norton. Im afraid my daugter had succumbed to Symantec's ransom and purchased their product because the nag sreen wore her down.
Im now trying, without success, to rid this PC of Norton.
I have used Symantec Endpoint protection for over ten years, but now understand they are far from the best.
I need help navigating the new environment of stand alone vs SaaS and what exactly is the difference between antivirus suite and Endpoint protection.
I have purchased three new laptops...
In order to get the W10 Anniversary Update, i will have to remove my now outdated version of Symantec Endpoint Protection. My question is this: Should i hold off the update for a few months in order to get a new copy, or should i just uninstall and use Avast? What are the detection rates, and...
I am on Windows 10 and have previously used Norton - which crashed by PC so that's a no go + it costs a lot. I am currently using avast! which is pretty good; however, I need something more lightweight, the price is good and I presume the detection is solid also.
I have currently looked...
My vendor is being very lazy and are not responding to my emails / or pick up the phone.
I contacted Symantec through phone this morning, and now my email that I send keeps getting forwarded to different people but still no reply to my questions.
So I am trying it here now.
I telecommute for my job, and I own my computer. Our company's software is browser-based and we use a standard web messaging client for communication. They made us sign an agreement to install a company-provided program (just calling it "Symantec"). After signing the agreement, I was sent a...
I would like to create a boot disk that will boot into Symantec Ghost 8.3 which is DOS based and then install an image that I have created onto the hard drive of that machine.
I can create the boot disk with the wizard but I am unable to browse my NAS device which contains the image file.
I opened the program to see what was wrong because it said it was disabled and it said the problem was that it had to update. So i updated it and the network and antivirus/antispyware were fixed and turned back on. However it said that the proactive threats definitions had to be updated so i...

On my pc ( soon to build a new one ), I had windows xp firewall and Internet security, also a symantec antivirus.
While on the Internet I received a message from windows saying my firewall and other security has well pretty much crashed and uploaded 29 viruses like a stat counter and...
I am a big fan of Symantec products. I have been using Norton Internet Security ever since I got my first computer. But never actually bought a license for it. Recently I was considering buying one for NIS2010 which is an amazing product, and mostly out of curiosity, I went searching for it on...
I've run into yet another instance of symantec doing what it does best... and that is suck.
When one of my users emails me saying they have a virus... I hope for the best, maybe it's just a spoof IE pop up or something harmless. We spend $2000 per year on our symantec endpoint security...
The subscription to McAffee that came with my computer expires soon so I've been considering my options for the future. There are 3 applications I am considering:
1. Avast Free
2. AVG Free
3. Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition suite (available to me for free through my school)
I know a...

Whats the most effective ANTI-VIRUS/FIREWALL software package for a Windows Mobile ver 6 HTC Mogul phone?
Please don't suggest Symantec anything as the last Symantec A/V I installed on my desktop PC missed several Trojans even with current A/V definitions.
Thank you gentlemen.
A few months ago I had a computer technician remove my symantec anti virus saying it had a bundled fire wall that was interfering with me networking a printer. I installed Avast which I heard is a resonable alternative to commeercial anti-virus. On installation, it found a Trojan. A week ago...

I'm tring to figure out how to make a CD bootable that would load a Symantec ghost image onto a pc with little or no user intervention. Just put in the CD, Ghost runs and installs/writes the image to the hard drive. Any suggestions?
