    Norton 360

    maybe norton 360 has many conflicts regarding your programs.I suggest that use norton 2005 instead of 360. Post here if there's any error regarding norton. :p

    Norton 360 is a Beta program. If all betas worked perfectly, this would be a perfect world wouldn't it... I am using Norton 360 beta because I just don't trust Microsoft's all-in-one security for Vista

    Thank you Howard

    Hi, I was just googling about the trojan Downloader.Zlob.Fc problem and the solution Howard posted worked like a charm. I thought I would browse around this forum and noticed this thread.

    I have used NIS 2006 and have just bought NIS 2007 but find this version to be slowing my computer down something huge. At first I thought it was a virus (which it was) but removing the virus didn't speed up the computer too much.

    I was wondering with the Norton Removal Tool, would it work for NIS 2007?

    The description states it works for the following:

    Norton AntiVirus 2004/2005
    * Norton AntiVirus Professional 2004
    * Norton AntiVirus 3, 5 and 10 User Pack 2004/2005
    * Norton SystemWorks 2004/2004 Professional Edition
    * Norton SystemWorks 2005/2005 Premier edition
    * Norton Password Manager 2004
    * Norton Internet Security 2004/2005
    * Norton Internet Security 5 and 10 User Pack 2004/2005
    * Norton Personal Firewall 2004/2005
    * Norton AntiSpam 2004/2005
    * Ghost 2003 or Ghost Version 9.0

    Any Insights?

    Regards.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Use this uninstall tool from HERE. Apparently it works for all Norton 2007/2006/2005/2004/2003 products.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
