Original Embedded Unsupported Obsolete Norton Security in My HP Pavilion a6400f Desktop "CAN NOT BE REMOVED"!
To Whom it may Concern:
Original Embedded Norton Security in My HP Pavilion a6400f Desktop "CAN NOT BE REMOVED"!
Although I have marked this thread as "I need a solution" I really " DO NOT BELIEVE THERE IS ONE!"
For almost Two years now I have struggled with an HP Pavilion a6400f Desktop Computer
which came factory installed with Windows Vista/Norton Security-pre-installed!
After upgrading to Win 10 Pro x32 currently ver. 1709, O.S. Build 17074.1002
as I participate in the Microsoft Windows Insider O.S. Build Preview Program.
I have contacted Norton numerous times concerning this issue, where upon
a Norton Tech would perform a remote session diagnostic & alleged repair
to correct this "UNSOLVABLE ISSUE".
Since NORTON has abandoned
the Norton Security Product which is EMBEDDED in
the Original Vista Operating System -"IT CAN NOT BE REMOVED"!
The dilemma that this causes is multi-faceted,
in that when an attempt is made to install
the Norton "Internet" Security Product that is currently still supported
by Norton, even though at first it appears that
the Original Embedded Obsolete unsupported Norton Security Product was been removed &
the Norton "Internet" Security Product "APPEARS" to have been Installed correctly,
& updates & Scans correctly, in actuality after a few reboots of the Computer
the Original Embedded unsupported Obsolete Norton Security Product re-installs itself, with the end
result of "BOTH" the Original Embedded unsupported Obsolete Norton Security Product &
the currently supported Norton "Internet" Security Product trying
to "BOTH" run on the "SAME" Computer at the "SAME" time!
At this point, my only purpose for this Thread is to Document what
has occurred & explain my position for my decision to "NOT" re-new my subscription of
the Norton "Internet" Security Product when it comes due for renewal!
Presently, I've been left no other alternative, other than to rely on
Microsoft's Built in Anti-Virus Protection Software-Defender
& Scanning tools that Norton offers,
but unfortunately, presently, Norton's currently supported "Internet" Security Products
can not be installed in Old Computers that came with
Embedded Factory installed Obsolete Norton Security Products
that are no longer supported by Norton, &
"MOST IMPORTANTLY CAN NOT BE PERMANENTLY REMOVED" -
UNLESS YOU REPLACE THE ENTIRE OPERATING SYSTEM WHICH IS COST
