    Re: Discover Norton 360 3.0

    It was fine until I had a problem. Over the course of several months the Norton program randomly blocked all internet access and I was not able to open the Norton program to uninstall it. I contacted their support and through "safe with networking" login they were able to remotely login, uninstall the program, change some settings and reinstall and then it would work for a bit. After the first time I knew what the problem was when it happened and I logged into safe mode and contacted their tech support. They once again logged in and did the same uninstall/settings/reinstall operation. This happened 2 more times and on the final episode they decided my computer was virus infected and when I asked how that could happen with their program in placed they replied that I had "allowed" by accepting a program download. They then transferred me to a technician aka salesman who explained that for $140 they would remove the virus and speed up my computer 3 times faster, when I said I couldn't afford that they said well for $100 they could just remove the virus which I again protested but didn't feel like I really had any choice so once the salesman got my credit card number he transferred me to a technician where I remained on hold for almost 2 hours. Once contact was made the tech logged in remotely and went through lots of different things to remove viruses (he says) and ultimately got the system working again. Of course none of my programs that require internet access are working so I'm still fussing with settings to fix things. This process took from 9AM until 8PM. When he was finished he summarized with a phone call and stated that it was not a program I had downloaded but a "lot of viruses". That reads to me that their program failed and I need my money back. I will never buy another norton product. This was by the way the Norton 360 premier 3.0 version.

    Re: Discover Norton 360 3.0

    If your router is using DHCP then what you need to do in Norton 360 is to add the MAC addresses of the machines you want to share instead of the IP address. You can recover them easily from Symantec's secured online storage service. When you change the settings in the Norton Firewall and use the MAC addresses of the computers, the rules should update correctly and traffic should flow properly.

    It doesn't appear to me that your post relates in any way to my experience. Sorry.
