Norton antivirus 2016 not updating
The bank site gives you a different number every time.
This is done with the help of a random number generator which will give you random numbers for input.
If you rename any file to "crack" or "patch" Norton deletes it. I also use Microsoft One Drive for some of my documents (not as backup but for syncronization of laptop and desktop).
That is how stupid it was when I decided not to use it anymore.
However, it is not really random at all if you know the formula and only the 'creator' knows the number.
The device has a clock that changes to the next number at known time intervals.
confidential information, I doubt the effort you are putting into your thoughts for high level security should be of that much concern.
You are a home user and yes, you do internet banking like thousands of people, hence banking transactions are made in an https secure page where your credentials are accepted in an encrypted authentication process.
The time and date may be the reason of this Norton 360 Live Update Not Working problem.
And IF which is a big IF someone did get to guess your device number, they would still need your password, pin etc. BTW this file contains all my legal software and download server account serials.
Although I don't think there is anything wrong with taking precaution but I do think you give Norton far less credit for what its capable by listening to the bs talks of these fanboys. Also, your favorites, Norton, trend micro, are also multinational corporations. Being stupid is something like this, going beyond the call of duty and try to erase any file with a suspicious name.
The first time a tried to do it, it came up with a message saying that there was a bad image in the win32or something. They told me to write in update source page in menu. As a matter of fact as time passed after the installation of Kaspersky, it started to take a toll on my ram usage but Norton remained constant with it's good performance so eat your own words and do some research on your own before you jump on the band wagon of these marketing gimmicks fanboy. I think I may try Trend Micro or some other software once my licence expires in 382 days.
I thought it might be conflicting with AVG free, so i removed that and tried to do it again, but it goes no further than %2 Should i just forget about kaspersky and get Norton or one of the free internet security programs? I do need a qood internet security software as I do internet banking all the time and do a lot of downloading too. Norton goes beyond the call of duty and tries to erase any file with a suspicious name. As far as the comment goes that Norton detects suspicious files and erase threats, isn't erasing threats the job of an antivirus?
