Horror story about a preinstalled Norton Antivirus back in 2003. I think I was running Windows XP. Everything was normal until my trial of Norton Antivirus went out after 30 days. Then everything went wrong. My machine wouldn't connect to the internet unless it was a popup or ad from Norton Antivirus. I swear this was not a rogue antivirus.
Since I didn't know too much about computers at the time, I called some tech support (I cannot remember who). He was asking what programs I had installed, and when I told him Norton AV he immediately said to uninstall it. "How do I uninstall a program?" So he guided me through that process and immediately after I uninstalled Norton my internet was back to normal.
I never used a Norton product again.
Only been using PC since 2010 but i really am addicted to it now. Have only ever used Norton since the first day. So far so good.
...Do you know
So Removed Mcafee, and installed WIndows Live One Care, And boy did i get infected while testing that program.
