Nortonproducts are very popular and anti- programs in the software market. One of its products is Norton AntiVirus 2009. Many computer users have installed it as their pc security tool. I have used it for a long time, and it is really reliable software in my opinion. However, there are some questions about using it. This article tries to explain some common problems of using Norton AntiVirus 2009.
Cannot use a specific program or device after you install a Norton 2009 product
STEP 1 – Download and run Intelligent Updater (Run a tool to update your virus definitions.)
STEP 2 – Run Virus Scan
Start your Norton 2009 product.
In the Computer pane, click Scan Now > Run Full System Scan.
Click Finish when the scan completes.
Check if you are able to use the program or device. If the problem persists, go to Step 3.
STEP 3 – Provide more information to Symantec
(More data are needed in order to troubleshoot the cause of your problem, send the name of the program that you are unable to use.)
Problem 2: how to get maximum protection from Norton AntiVirus 2009?
When your product is installed, and you have run LiveUpdate, you have complete protection from viruses and other security risks. However, new risks are created constantly. Security risks can spread when you start your computer from an infected disk or when you run an infected program. There are several things that you can do to avoid security risks and to recover quickly should one strike. It is important that you keep your security protection up-to-date.
To avoid security risks:
• Keep Auto-Protect turned on at all times to prevent viruses from infecting your computer.
• Keep Automatic LiveUpdate turned on at all times to continually receive protection updates.
• Run LiveUpdate regularly to receive new program updates.
• Do not open attachments from unknown senders.
• Keep email protection turned on to avoid sending or receiving infected email attachments.
• Keep all recommended settings turned on.
In brief, Norton AntiVirus 2009 can protect your PC against all types of malicious software including viruses,, worms, and other software threats without slowing it down. It updates every 5 to 15 minutes which can help to ensure that you’re protected from the latest threats.
