    Norton will fail you. Time and time again, I receive phone calls from users that had Norton installed at the factory and never purchase another subscription. You guess it the PC is infected. I use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 100% of the time. I blog about my work visit my blog for more info.

    i used to reccomment Norton about 5 years ago, now i advise people to avoid it like the plague. As IT admin i experience lots of problems with symantec endpoint, lots of users getting infected laptops and nortons usual response is to freeze and crash. I always end up installing a free AV to remove the infections, then ninstall it again. Pathetic Norton, where did it all go wrong?

    I can’t get past the step where you rename the file in order to stop Security Shield from detecting it. I renamed it to ‘myfile’, ‘myfile.exe’ and even tried ‘catsanddogs’, nothing works! It just keeps falsely detecting it and preventing me from installing it.

    Any help? Thanks

    naturally like your website however you need to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to tell the reality on the other hand I will surely come again again.
