why does my norton keep shutting off

Norton Security keeps shutting down at random on my computer. ВIt can happen when I open my browser (using Chrome) orВwhen I close the browser. ВThere have been times I have been playing a game that is full screen, and when I shut it down, Norton has shut down sometime when I was playing. ВI checked using the taskmaster the last time the icon disappeared from the system try and it showed that Norton wasn't running. В I also have Malware Bytes Premium installed, but have my Norton security excluded from the scans. Norton is updated as much as I can get it using Live update, and it keeps shutting down. ВI don't have any problems starting it back up from the desktop icon, but it is getting annoying. ВIs there anything to do that can stop it from doing this? ВIt had been going on for at least the last 4 month. ВI am using Windows 10 pro (free update from windows 7 Pro) with all of the current updates installed.
if you think that's all read the replys.


I swear this has been happening for quite some time and not just with NAV! It happened to 2 clients of mine around 6 months ago. There are plenty of viruses and adware junk that seem to be able to do this with ease. That the incompetents at Symantec have only just figured this out is astounding. NAV is usless bloatware, but just like Telstra, they retain their market share by preying on the ignorance of the general public, who go with whatever company spends the most on advertising. The free anti-virus scanner AVG ( ) consistently provides better protection than NAV and it won't cost the user a single red cent. This is also a problem with their Enterprise or Corporate version 9. 0. 0. 1400 product. Auto-enable is disabled if fast-user switching is enabled on an XP machine. The major reason I switched from Norton to Kaspersky is because Norton does not find nearly as many viruses on my system as Kaspersky found.


Funny how these industry leaders get greedy fast and stop making a quality product at the expense of their consumers' pocketbook. As an IT consultant I have a fairly good idea about how this company's dynamic works. They often package their products with computer systems, such as Dell with time-limited trials. Once the trial period ends, it seems the consumer is lulled into a false sense of security and purchase a license extension on a product that claims to protect their system. In actuallity it is letting viruses through and leading the consumer to believe that because they perform regular virus scans that report back that the system is clean, when it isn't. My auto-protect has been disabled in my Norton Antivirus. It took nearly an hour to find out what to do about it and now I can't do the fix.


I cannot uninstall and then reinstall the program because I downloaded it on the internet. And, I find no way to directly or indirectly contact Norton to take care of the problem. What an A-- hole company. They have plenty of avenues to buy their crap but not to fix it. My auto-protect has been disabled in my Norton Antivirus.

As an user of NAV 2004, I would like to know what action has been taken to rectify the flaws by Symantec. If not corrected so far, I would change to Mcaffee software.
