Norton Anti-Virus Security Pop-Up WON'T STOP
Posted 13 February 2008 - 03:17 PM
I've tried disabling the auto live update feature, but this does not work. (I've also tried disabling the auto-protect feature, but that didn't work either, and obviously I want auto-protect on.)
This makes using my computer next to impossible. I'm ready to uninstall the darned program.

Yeah Norton have the habit of turning on you when you don't renew. I like to joke that Norton itself is like a virus.
Norton can prove to be quite hard to remove, if one doesn't know where to look...
But Symantec have made a tool to remove there product!!!!
(Gives alittle clue about the nature of this program)
It can be found here: LINK
Download the approiate tool for your version.
Otherwise, if you don't want to get rid of the endless pop-ups, warnings etc etc, you have to pay/repay for the program.

Are there any free trials I should check out?
Hi again DELL 4500s XP
The two I would recommend to try out, is AVG Antivirus and Avast. They have different strengths, but are equally good in my opinion.
AVG Antivirus can be downloaded from here: LINK
Avast from here: LINK
With Avast, you have to register for a product key, but its still free and the program-key lasts for 14 months, by which time you have to renew it, still free of charge.
You can try them both out, and see which one you like. Just remember to only have one active Antivirus program at any given time. Otherwise they would conflict, and actually give you a poorer defense.
