  • Norton Update Totally Borked My PC 9/2/14

    The latest update totally borked my PC--- Everything was fine till I read about the FF 32 Update. I tried to access it by downloading the Norton Latest Version Checker via NIS. During or after the download, my file explorer and then subsequently my entire PC froze. It would thereafter no longer boot into a fully functional state.  What had happened after trying to update my NIS is that my desktop and file explorer do not function unless I first use a popular multi-use utility to fix those problems and I need to do it every time I start Windows. I am not even using FF 32, only…

    I have been letting N 360 manage my back-ups for over three years, but now I get error messages becuse my backup drive is full at about 460 GB.  The c: drive I am backing up has lots of space - all my applications and files only take up about 148 GB.  How can the backup (freshly run today) be so much bigger than the data it is backing up? I figured the answer must be that previous back-ups are there too, and I need to delete some of them.  But when I go into "Manage Backups" I find there is only one set of files ("Default Set") and that cannot be deleted! I could…

    My computer recently started hanging on "Save As" operations and on common diagnostics, like MMC-Disk Management.  At about the same time this behavior began, I also noticed for the first time a "Norton Backup Drive" listed as an attached device.  I have disabled Norton Backup in Norton Security Suite, rebooted, and that drive device is still listed, and I still have the have the hang issues.  I didn't authorize Norton to start running Backup, or to create a Backup Drive.  I'd like to know how that happened as well. Thanks

    I'm running Norton Internet Security 5 for Mac on OS X version 10.9.4. Norton found a trojan on my system a few days ago and was unable to remove it.  I wiped my entire system, re-installed all software (including Norton), and another trojan was identified this morning.  It's finding the trojan in a folder called "MobileBackups", but I can't find that folder anywhere on my system.   Any ideas?  I really don't want to wipe my entire system again.  Not sure where this is coming from.

  • NHP / Norton Hotspot security - wired and wireless connections get double counted as two "users"?

     I think NHP is "double counting" my laptops as two devices and then telling me I have five devices connected when I do not actually have five connected... Sometimes my laptops are connected by wired connections and sometimes by wifi... NHP is set to always protect and I'm guessing that the licensed connections are being counted by MAC addresses and NOT by machine names or some other method ... this seems to be what's happening to me .... could one of the programmers check this potential license bug? Thanks!

    As part of my role, I travel the world briefing media and international colleagues on safer internet use, news and trends. Earlier this year I visited the UK and we discussed our observations that more often than not, parents are either sharing the teaching of internet safety to the kids or moms are taking the primary role. It used to be, in the old days, that anything to do with technology was the purview of the fathers, but apparently that is changing. I often advocate that both parents have “the Talk” about internet safety with children from the very beginning of their use of the…

    Take a moment to think where you were ten years ago and what your computer and internet experience was like. If you can, you’ll remember the work you had cleaning up your email from the deluge of spam messages and the frequency of big virus outbreaks like “ILoveYou”; “Anna Kournikova” and “Code Red”. And when things went wrong, it always felt like your responsibility alone to clean the computer, remove the threat and fix the damage. You weren’t the only one who thought things had to change. Every October, since 2003, we recognize as National Cyber Security Awareness Month…

To complicate matters, our digital lives don’t just reside on a desktop but on multiple devices and platforms. Too many of us remain vulnerable to advanced threats. If we want to free ourselves to take full advantage of our amazing digital, interconnected world, we need to secure ourselves.
