    Norton Antivirus Not Updating Automatically in Windows Vista

    Hi, I have been using Norton Antivirus for my Windows vista Laptop. I have been facing some issues in the recent past because of the Antivirus not updating in my system. I know my laptop is affected by virus problem but still my Antivirus is not showing any signs of viruses. How can make my Antivirus Works. Is there any alternative Antivirus for my system?

    Hi,
    You are very near to the solution as your observation is definitive and points directly to the root of the problem

    Your system is infected with virus and even the antivirus file that runs to perform its duty. the .exe file is itself corrupt thats why it cant do its duty.

    You need to boot from a cd, then insert an antivirus cd in the optical drive and clean the whole drive , the HDD in full, extensively.

    This external antivirus will scan, clean the system and your resident antivirus perfectly and will help to get fit once again ,

    Afterwards all functions can be done without any problem.

    Thank you.
