    when you vist the game site, please do not log in. Click the Norton Internet Security tool bar in Internet Explorer and uncheck the options to block ads and pop ups and then try loggin in

    Ok...I have read through all the posts on this topic and have downloaded AVG and Zone Alarm and uninstalled Nortons...I am using firefox...Spike, Realblackstuff and Howard...I trust your advice 100%. Zone alarm is telling me that I have no anti-virus on my computer and TuneUp Utilities is telling me I have no anti-spam...Computer Help, post 86 say's I should use AVast and Spike suggests Kerio, do I install both?

    your problem may be that you have the firewall configured to block Active-X and Java applets which are required fro many internet games to run, try lowerin the firewall security levels and then retry the games

    Can I reinstall NIS without losing updates?

    Hi there. I'm having trouble with my NIS and the only solution seems to be to reinstall. Problem is, it's been installed for 8 months and I just don't want to reinstall all the updates downloaded since then. Is there a way I can back up these updates and reinstall them into a clean version of NIS 2005? Thanks for your help.

    I am pretty sure that you will have to download them all over again. At least with more programs that is the way it works because if you are going to reinstall you should uninstall the program first and then install again. Although you really should think about getting rid of the Norton stuff.

    The best answer is to get rid of that norton crap!!

    Download either the free AVG or Avast antivirus programmes and either the free Zonealarm or Kerio firewall programmes from within this link - http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic58138.html

    Then, disconnect from the net and completely uninstall Symantec/Norton. If you have any problems in uninstalling the programme, take a look at this thread - http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic57112.html

    Once you`ve completely uninstalled Symantec/Norton, reboot your system and install whichever firewall programme you chose, followed by whichever antivirus programme you chose. Reboot your system the required number of times and reconnect to the net. Run the antivirus updates.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Maybe you should consider getting rid of Norton altogether and using something else?

    Here is a list of free antivirus and firewall programmes as well as some free antispyware programmes that I recommend.

    AVG free or Avast antivirus programmes.

    Zonealarm or Kerio free firewall programmes.

    Spybot Search & Destroy.

    Ad-Aware se personal.

    Spyware Blaster.

    AVG Antispyware.

    Ccleaner.

    You would need to download whichever antivirus and firewall programme you chose, then disconnect from the net and uninstall Norton. If you have any problems in uninstalling Norton, see this thread HERE.

    Then, once Norton is completely uninstalled, reboot your system and install whichever firewall programme you chose, followed by whichever antivirus programme you chose.

    Reboot your system the required number of times and reconnect to the net. Run the antivirus updates.

    If you still have net problems after that, then open a new thread in our storage and networking forum.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
