Firewall will not stay on

Posted: 02-27-2008, 06:16 PM
I have a Acer notebook. It had Norton security already installed. I removed
this recently and put a AVG anti virus on. This seems to be fine. What I am
finding is that when I turn on the computer the Firewall is off. I then reset
it to on but again it is off on start up.
This did not happen when Norton was installed.

Did you use the Norton Removal Tool?

I removed it using windows but noticed a update item that could not be
uninstalled.
I then used the Norton remover tool to remove every thing. this seems to
have have worked but the firewall still stays off on start up.

Do a thorough check for malware, following all of the steps at one of these
Web pages.

So How Did I Get Infected Anyway?
For quite a few people it's by installing programs like Messenger Plus,
whose ads for malware don't identify the malware as such and try to convince
you that you owe it to the author. See also:

Don't ever do a "default" install of anything. Always choose Custom and see
what else is being carried along. Don't install any extras you're not sure
of.
