Help.......just had problems with my nortons security and have to wipe it off and reinstall. trouble is my pc had preinstalled software and i havent got a disc. having only just paid the 12 month subscription I have the subscription number etc, but no nortons disc. Is there a site that i can d/load nortons and allow me to enter my subscription number so i can carry on. OR have i got to buy disc, if so have i lost my subscription???

Call it a day with Norton and take a few of the free options:

Avast AV from click here

Sygate Personal Firewall - click here

a few anti-spywares like AdAware, Spybot Search & Destroy and Spyware Blaster

I'm afraid I agree with Diodorus Siculus and Avast is excellent(free version for home users).

Zone alarm is also a free firewall, microsoft anti spyware beta is another good free progran.

Norton who?

Rdave13 - don't be afraid about agreeing with me. Most reasonable people do ;-)

I'm being unreasonable..I'm afraid ;)

Cheers gents. Are these 'true' free progs or trial versions where they later ask for payment

Several other free trials are available click here
I am using the CA free 1 year trial. IMHO, it's better than Norton.

are u running the anti virus and firewall scareybus? will it conflict if i were to use differen brand firewall and anti virus.

perhaps this might help or at least lead you in the correct direction before doing what others have advised eg Avastclick here

  Diodorus Siculus 22:25 27 Nov 2005

Avast and the other I suggest are truly free - free now and there seems no reason to suggest that they might start to charge for them.
