  • NIS (Norton Insight) Question

    23 Jul 2014 | 12:16 pm
    Hi All,I have several files that NIS says are unproven and that I should remove them.  The weird thing is Norton will not show me where they are located on my system. Also, when I click on their entry in Norton Insight, they then disappear from my untrusted files list.  If I try to reload Norton Insight again to show these files again, I then get "Norton Insight has encountered an unknown error.  Please try again later" message.The files are: mscorlib.dllsystem.drawing.design.dllsystem.windows.forms.dllHow can I submit these files to Norton for review?  I…

    I have a laptop and a custom built desktop PC both with Windows 7 Ultimate x64. When I install NIS on my laptop it blocks all of the internet access. I couldn't even run the Norton Removal Tool without going into safe mode with networking. I tried disabling the firewall, autoprotect, and every other setting I could. I have made sure that Windows Firewall is disabled. I used to have NIS working on my laptop but I didn't use it for a long time. When I started using my laptop again I used Norton Live Update and it started blocking the internet some time after that. I just did a fresh…
  • In NIS2014, how can I preserve friendly cookies during a scan

    22 Jul 2014 | 9:40 pm
    I'm running NIS 2014 on a Dell XPS desktop machine using Win 7 home/pro. As part of my normal access procedure to my banking websites, the bank sets a cookie on my computer to identify it as a known computer during subsequent log-ins. Every time NIS 2014 does its scan, it detects these "friendly cookies" along with whatever else may have collected since the last scan, labels them as tracking cookies and deletes the whole list. I want to know if there is a way to identify the "friendly cookies" as being safe, and preserve them during NIS's normal scans. It is getting to be a pain for…

     Hi all, I need some professional advice. Whenever I run Norton 360 virus scan, the Blue Screen of Death appears.  Even in silent mode, idle scan, when the virus scan starts, it seems that Norton 360 triggers the BSOD.I am not 100% sure if Norton 360 causes the crash or some conflicts between the drivers or hardware problems triggered the BSOD. If I disable Norton 360, the computer can runs for weeks without BSOD. The computer passed the cpu test and ram test. It is run in default settings i.e. no overclock.Temperature of the cpu never exceeds 32degrees. Temperature…

  • Has Norton dropped support for NIS 4.x "vulnerability protection signatures"?

    29 Jun 2014 | 5:22 pm
    A little background... Our family has been using an "old" mac as a LAN server and it's only capable of running NIS 4.x(Comcast version). I recently noticed the "vulnerability protection signatures" had not been updated for 2 months(last date 4/17)! I then compared the date to our newer macs running NIS 5.x and they showed 6/24 as the last update. Other than that everything else seems to be functioning as expected... "virus def." & "deepsight def." seem up-to-date(Both in the month of June). Any explanation?

    I'm running Windows Vista 64 bit and Norton Internet Security. I've just installed Norton Utilities 16 and the first thing I did was a registry clean, including a deep scan. The scan found a bunch of problems in various places but stopped during the deep scan. I then ran it without the deep scan and fixed the problems, and repeated the deep scan: it stopped again. I tried switching Windows to Safe Mode but still had the failure in deep scan. I switched back to normal mode: same problem. The point at which deep scan stops is 98% through (at which point it claims to have found over 35,000…
