Warning Nortons Internet Security Has Been Attacked By A New Virus!

on January 14th 2013, 1:25 pm
Hackers have found a way to attack Norton protected computers by using the software against them and it's spreading like wildfire. My computer has been infected and will probably need to be repaired soon, so just be aware that this known issue is a serious risk to your computer if you have Nortons at the momment. Sad

As long as no irreparable damage is done to my computer's software, should a new virus protection program be able to fix this issue?

I have Avast! and it's almost perfect. I say almost because I had to find a work-around to get MapleStory to work since Avast! treats it as though it's an incursion. In any case, go with Avast!. Wink

Thats why I go with AVG over Avast. I ran into the same problem with World of Warcraft and Avast. Avast would always block stuff from WoW or say it was a virus and wouldnt let it run properly. From what I have read AVG and Avast are equal.

You triple-quoted me? lol!

Anyway, I've never had a problem running WoW on my PC with Avast! in the background. Maybe each copy is picky with which MMOs it'll let you run without pestering you about it. Wink

Yeah I triple quoted you. Actually the left button on my mouse is going out and sometimes when you click it once it registers as three clicks. I just didnt feel like deleting it.

Avast sounds like pirate lingo. Twisted Evil
