Norton Core Hacked??
I bought a Norton Core in Feb of this year. I have been quite pleased with it's overall operation and performance. My experience includes building, running,and owning an ISP back in the late 90's until cable took over and been with computers and the internet ever since.. I was able to set the Core's Firewall to Aggressive and set the Firewall on my Laptop's Norton Security to Aggressive. Each day when I start my Laptop up and it's all Booted Up, I empty my temp files and do a scan disk. Then I do a Defrag and Optimize. Then I launch Norton Security on my Laptop. When fully launched I connect to my Internet. When connected I launch Norton Security Update, to get the latest updates for the day. On 14th of this month, 9/14/18, I connected online and Launched Norton Security Updates,,Have way thru the Download, with No Browser launched yet,
Then a White Screen with Blue Lettering appeared over Norton,,The Blue Lettering was flashing "Caution Alert" and at the bottom it was showing a Download in progress,,So I Pulled the Plug and Took out the Battery before the downloading was complete,,I Believe a Malware Virus Piggy Backed on the Norton Update Download ,Now when I try to start my Laptop up, ,Power light comes on, but Does NOT Boots up, Screen remains dark,,,Can Norton HELP? I Think NOT!! When I use Chat Support,,I get someone who has NO Clue as to what I'm talking about, I get dropped, or they keep trying solutions they are reading from scripted answers to questions, while they handle who knows how many other people at the same time. When I get a call or I call Norton Support, I get someone that tells me "NO Way Can Norton Core" can have this Happen. WELL IT Happened to me!!! Now I'm left to Deal with my main Laptop with my life on it!!!!!! I'm Only a Newbie with Norton,
