I don't have Norton Anti-Virus software on my laptop and don't want it but I kept getting notifications that my laptop was having security problems. I use Sophos and am very satisified with the performance - they quarantined a virus. When I called Norton to tell them to get their virus notice off my laptop, they wanted me to allow them to hook up to my computer. Like - no! Then he asked me if I... Read more

I noticed that there was no anti-virus on computer. Don't know what happened to previous program. Since downloading it, all internet activity (through Chrome) is much slower, I cannot get Internet Explorer to load at all. This is not what I expected, and I don't understand. A scan shows "no threats", but then what has happened? I went on to the site and disabled as many internet checks, parental... Read more

When I renewed my Norton Anti-Virus in 2013 I was offered a savings if I signed up for two years, which I did. After only one year they are trying to charge me again. When I call them, they tell me they have no record of a 2 year purchase, in fact that don't even show that I renewed at all in 2013. I asked them why I had the service if that was the case. They say they have no record of a... Read more

We did a bunch of tests only to find out that I had a virus. He told me that it was going to take 1-2 hours and he would have to transfer me. He said there was a charge and could he transfer me. I replied that I would like to know the cost first. He told me it was $100. I replied that I was going to hold off and see if my friend could help me instead. Then he got angry and rude with me. He went... Read more

I had been using Norton antivirus for 3 years. Aside from their automatic renewal where they extracted $60 out of my bank account a month before my subscription ended, I had no major issues. A few months ago, I became infected with Conduit and Mystart browser hijackers, and Norton failed to recognize/remove them. (I'm beginning to wonder if Norton is in cahoots with Conduit and Mystart) In an... Read more

About six months ago I was running Norton 360, Windows 8 and a virus shut Norton down and the hard drive was badly infected. Staples wiped the drive but but the computer still wasn't right so I got a new Dell, Windows 8 and last week the same thing happened. A virus was able to shut Norton down, the computer is badly infected and will have to be re-formatted. Not even talking about data loss,... Read more

I am a pensioner and had bought a small pink lap top. I had installed Norton via web as I have no disc drive on pink laptop. I could not find anywhere to put in the activation code, so I contact Norton. BIG BIG mistake. I said I only wanted to know how to activate my Norton. He told me where to go on norton page and I had to give him a code and he said he needed to have control of my computer as... Read more

These thieves keep billing my CC for $19.99 for some ultimate help desk service. I called the UHD in Pakistan, they transferred me to India and they transferred me to the Phillipines where I was put on eternal hold. I finally got in touch with a guy in Seattle who says he put in a request for cancellation and I will get e-mail in 72 hours. I never asked for, consented or even know what the ***... Read more
