When your Norton's year subscription comes to an end, my untechnical solution is to uninstall and throw the whole thing in the bin. I have done that with Norton's firewallprogramme and will do the same with the the virus scan when it runs out. Long before the end of the subscription period, you will find your screen bombarded with warnings and reminders and freeze ups. Zap them and they reappear shortly afterwards. Is this a way to treat paying clients? The whole thing behaves like a worm in your computer, which is what it seems to resemble. I have replaced with a McAfee programme which comes free with aol.
