    Hi,I'm having a problem with Norton Internet Security. I have two computers on a wired LAN network both running Windows 7 Pro 64bit, and have NIS installed on both.

There are aprox. 10-15 of these showing per month. PC2, (the other machine on the network) shows only low risk resolved tracking cookies. Never one singe high risk threat in six months. I find this odd, because both computers are on…

    Hello, I am in urgent need of help with Norton Anti-Theft in combination with Intel Anti-Theft! I received an email on the 13th of June 2014 about Intel stopping with the Intel AT service per May 2015. Reading this email I was under the (as it looks now apparently mistaken) belief that the use of Intel AT service by Norton Anti-Theft would stop per May 2015. A few weeks ago my laptop suddenly booted and required my Intel AT user password  to continue, which I supplied. I really did not think it through and thought this was due to failed communication between the Norton AT…
  • How to prevent bypassing Norton SafeConnect?

    28 Jul 2014 | 4:12 pm
    I think Norton SafeConnect is a great idea. I have an Actiontec C1000A Router and I can't find any resources on how to configure it so that DNS port 53 is blocked. I only want the Norton SafeConnect DNS servers to work, but it seems very easy to bypass them by using any unfiltered DNS servers on a client device. Has anyone figured out how to only allow Norton's DNS servers? I haven't called my ISP or Actiontec yet. I thought I'd ask for help here first.

    When I perform a regular system scan with NPE it works. I found a file that I didn't want, so NPE created a restore point, and restarted. Worked perfectly fine. But the rootkit scan does not seem to work. It restarts immediately, I log in normally, and after that, nothing happens. When I perfomed the regular system scan, after restarting NPE popped up and said it had removed my bad file.Is the root kit scan supposed to work like this? I am using windows 7, I have norton internet security as well, should I pherhaps launch it from there?
