N360 deletes pctoolsantivirus when I download it
My 'puter (running Windows 7) has slowed considerably and even crashed once. I suspect a virus has gotten past Norton 360. With past computers, when this happened I found it helpful to download and use other, additional antivirus software, as it seems different antivirus programs can detect different viruses. So I tried to download PCTools Antivirus from Tucows, but Norton 360 deleted it immediately.
I seriously doubt that this software is a threat to my computer since it has a 100% rating on Tucows, and it's been around for years. I can only conclude that Norton deletes it to avoid competition. I looked online for a way to make N360 allow the download or restore the deletion, but none of the solutions I found have worked. I'm pretty sure I'm not the first person to run into this problem. How do you guys do it?
