Norton antivirus..

Am trying to install updates to my Norton antivirus. But when it comes time to install, the computer window tells me I already have a portion of Norton running and the updates can't overwrite a running program. What do I do?Error LU 1821

Uninstall your previous version of Norton then install the new version.

Re: Norton antivirus..

Go snoop around the norton web site, they have a special tool to do a complete removal of the software should it get into a funny state like this.

here it is, I think
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.

Until I upgraded recently, mine got weird for awhile. Worked around it by manually downloading and installing the updates. What version do you have?
