Norton Internet Security 2005

  IKC 23:09 25 Nov 04

I have just upgraded to this package. All has gone fine, but activation has proved impossible - the activation windown just hangs until i kill it with task manager. I am running SP2.
Anyone got any ideas or experienced the same??

I have just upgraded to the same product (from the 2004 version ) without problem also with SP2 installed.Try visiting the support website or look in the manual for your product for a uk helpline number.

You could also try uninstalling the program and removing all residual Norton/Symantec folders then reinstalling.

I have now taken this product off 7 computers. AVG + zone alarm, free and IMHO better.

Running NIS 2005 with XP SP2, no problems at all. Nor with NIS 2003, etc.

Symantec's site has been slow when I've tried to access over the past few days, even though I'm on broadband access. Are you on dial-up?

N/B There is a hiccup caused by NIS 2005's anti-Spam on Outlook installed for multiple user accounts on XP. It is an annoyance rather than a show stopper, especially as the self-learning anti-Spam works sufficiently well for me to be able to resurrect the use of a dormant email address I've surrendered to the onslaught of SPAM ages ago.

I've tried the phone support. I was told to delete the symantec folder in the registry and then reinstall the product - it made no difference. Other programs installed - office 2000, coreldraw, microsoft activesync...nothing special. I've tried downloading live update - again, no difference.

Have you tried running the automated support assistant from click here ?

Or search the knowledge base click here ?

To look to uninstall and reinstall cleanly, try this selection click here

I have not installed 50+ but have helped <10 others, all also without any problems. Looking to help IKC rather then engage in product knocking, ok guys? :-)
