Norton going nutts


Recommended Posts

Hi lads, before anyone says it  I KNOW ITS MY OWN FAULT!!


I was looking for a patch yesterday for a bit of software, I found  one downloaded it, ran it and pow it turned my Norton off, panic sets in  bluebigeek.gif bluebigeek.gif


I opens Norton turned it back on, warned my 2 bad files, scanned and said it had removed them, but now if I leave the norton outgoing mail scanner on I get constant popups warning me that my mail server has rejected a mail I am sending.

Cheked outlook and there is nothing in my outbox.

Also it seems to have killed my winxp firewall, if I go to control pannel and try to open it I get this popup.

what did you originally install?

It was meant to be a patch for tuneup utilities 2006, knew as soon as I clicked it it was a virus, I had scanned it but norton said it was fine. Soon as I double clicked it my norton turned off.


I have installed Panda titanium + firewall, but only a free trial its uncrackible. but it has removed the dodgy files (I hope).

Whats the best AV?, not Norton I have lost all faith in it.

But why on earth would I post a help thread in here if said Irish puff had gone on one ?  bluelaugh.gif
