Hi. I have Norton Internet Security 2004 on my Dell laptop. This is the 2nd time I have loaded it on my computer, after the 2 meltdowns I have had, with the 1st where Norton was the culprit. Anyway, I am having yet another problem with it, since last week. It's with Liveupdate. It seems that when I run one, my Parental control list runs but freezes a little way into its process. Which when this happens, I have to manually shut down. I have tried to turn off Parental control, but the list still pops up. Does anybody have any ideas of what I can do? Just a little backround check for my compter: 2.4 Ghz, 80 GB HD, 384 MB RAM, XP Home, SP 1 & 2, Dell Inspiron 5100 laptop. But what if I can't get this fixed? Can anybody give me any free firewalls, antivirus, spyware, etc. programs that could do the same if not better than Norton could? And if it's possible, please don't give me names of programs that I have to pay for or are just demos, because I payed a lot of money for NIS, and I don't want to risk me losing money on something that might not work again. Thanks for your help!
