Anti Virus and Firewall turned off

[ Edited ]

I have just installed Nortons Internet Security 2008 and everytime I start up my pc I get a message that Anit Virus and Firewall have been turned off when looking at Nortons program it tells me that the pc is secure with both of these. Can someone plese explain why this is. Thank you for your time.

Is it Windows or Norton talking?

I get the same problem too! I didn't when I had just Vista, but last night I installed Vista SP1 and ever since then it say's, "You have turned off your Anitspyware, Antivirus and Firewall" when I turn on my computer even though I haven't! It says "Secure" and everything! I got all the latest updates through LiveUpdate before I installed SP1. So I have no idea what's going on!

hi boring - any chance of getting a screen shot?

 

you can upload one after creating a free account at photobucket.com.

Hi - I have exactly the same problem.

 

I can't be 100% sure but I think it may have started after installing XP SP3.  I know also that SP3 has caused some problems with NAV but I think they were other problems and I've run the reg cleaner app which makes no difference.

 

Everything seems to be OK but it's a little disconcerting to get the message, appartently from Norton, as it makes you unsure as to whether some sort of virus is at work.

 

I have a screen shot but can't work out how to upload it!

Hi Robr,

 

We don't host any images as part of the forum, however you can insert images into your posts.   First you must upload your screenshot to any of the free image hosting services such as photobucket.com, imageshack, flickr, etc....   Once you have the URL for the uploaded image, use the image tool on the toolbar while you are making your post here (it looks like a tree and is just to the right of the 'chain link' or 3rd to the right from the smilie tool.)

 

Hope that helps.

Thanks - I did see that but realised I'd need to host the photo somewhere which kind of stumped me.  I didn't think of the free photo hosting sites.

I find it hard to take a screen shot as it happens so quickly.  It falshes up and then goes down more of less straight away.
