Best advice anyone can ever give you about Norton is UNINSTALL it, its a resource hog.

For the average user I would recommend AVG, but if you want something more advanced use Zone Alarm.

I like Avast myself. Also:

Use at least two anti-spyware solutions like Ad-Aware and Malwarebytes
Run as a standard user
Have a firewall on your router and your PC
Don't download/install/click things unless you trust the source

no its not , norton always has and always will be one of the best antivirus solutions around , they have been doing it a very long time and they are very good at it , and its not a resource hog , it never was , as a standalone Norton AV is one of the best.

It got a bad name (and rightly so) for its internet security suites (firwall/antivirus/antispyware) and i was one of its big haters , i still am , they werer a resource hog , even though they have made massive improvements with norton 360 they still try too hard to make it idiot proof and do everything for you giving you very little control over anything. But all that said i installed 360 on our work PC as it came free and i was pleasently surprised. (i still wouldnt touch it with a bargepole)

BUT the AV alone is very good

You are not supposed to discuss cracks and trial resets in the Forums.
However, you can PM to any member to do so. ;)

can anyone answer my first question tho?
It should be listed in the Misc settings option. Try reinstalling Norton and you may find the option. Or just go thru all the settings and you should find it.

Have you contacted Norton support about this? It may only be a trial version but you may also be a potential paying customer. ;)

Are you using Norton AV or norton Internet security 09? which version are you using? If you just wanna use trial reset then download the latest version of NIS 09 from www.symantec.com and then you will surely find what you are looking for.

NIS 2009 does not slow your computer at all. It's a lot better than previous Norton IS and I was running 2GB of ram with it on Vista and 1GB of ram on XP. No performance hit at all. Only using 3.5MB of ram on my computer. The uninstaller on 2009 is miles better than it is on the older version.

Just another user that base his opinion on past products. :rolleyes: Who uses Zone Alarm???
