Re: How to disable Norton temporarily for installing software

Hi,

here's what you should do:

1. Disconnect from the internet

2. Right click on the Norton icon by the system clock

3. Click on Turn off Auto-Protect

4. Install the software (if activation necessary, do it only after step 6)

5. Turn back Auto-Protect

6. Reconnect to the internet

Windows 10 Hungarian, Norton Internet Security v22.9.0.71
