    Norton 2005 Internet Security

    Ran into a problem where none of my programs could connect to the net properly and when I tried to close them they crashed :\

    Uninstalled Norton completely and reinstalled, still the same problem.. also an error message from Norton when I try to turn 'Intrusion Detection' on.

    Uninstalled and reinstalled again, same error..

    Firewall was working fine till I updated it then it all went bleh >_<

    Just about to reinstall again, don't suppose anyone else has had this problem and found a solution?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Tried uninstall / reinstall another 2 times.. same exact thing with the errors and programs crashing and unable to remove via 'end task' thingy in processes.

    If I disable NIS completely my programs don't crash..

    Maybe I have a virus affecting NIS?

    So I've uninstalled and reinstalled 5 times now removing all trace of NIS including registry keys and hidden files in between installments.. still same error.

    I cannot turn Intrusion Detection on at all and programs still crash.

    In truth i'd probably be inclined to uninstall all of norton and download AVG Free http://free.grisoft.com/doc/2/lng/us/tpl/v5 for virus scans and Zone alarm for your firewall http://download.zonelabs.com/bin/fre...737_000_en.exe they are both free and much less hassle than norton and use less resources

    ^^ ditto - Norton is now on my "never to be installed" list along with and AOL, BT, NTL, Zone Alarm, DELL(and winamp -may try it again) software.

    AVG Free and Kerio firewall (using avast [RIP sniff] atm ) are free and better imho. Also use some anti-spyware too.

    I used to use AVG and Zonealarm suite but then I moved over to McAfee and have never had any problems. McAfee Enterpirse is the one I use (it's licensed to the schools I work for ) but all of them are rather good in my opinion.

    AVG is or has been pretty slow by comparison to other AV scanners...
    See: http://www.overclockers.com/articles1260/ for a comprehensive list of scanners tested... As for firewalls I still use Sygate, an oldie but a goodie...

    NIS is the worst Anti Virus.Hacker/Spyware protection you can have

    reason why ?

    takes alot of CPU and memory usage thus making your PC slugish and slow...

    Use AVG Free and ZoneAlarm suggested above
    used them both for over 2 years now- top quality Appz

    I'd echo everything said above except I'd recommend Avast! instead of AVG.

    AntiVir is an amazing anti-virus program - it's never let me down yet.

    And just to back up what everyone said, I find Zone Alarm to be very good too.

    If you want a decent direct replacement for NIS 2005, you could download a 15-day trial of Zone Alarm Internet Security Suite 6 from their website and if you like it, purchase a serial key from the website or (if cheaper) purchase a boxed copy from Amazon.co.uk for &#163;25-&#163;27.

    I went to renew NIS 2004 and discovered that it was &#163;35 to do it online or &#163;39 to purchase the upgrade software to bring me up to NIS 2006 or I could purchase NIS 2006 for &#163;25 on Amazon. Then I read some reviews and ditched NIS for ZA suite - so far no complaints and it found lots of Spyware, although it says my PC is now clean but Spybot says that this is not the case.....
