I'm having a problem, i don't really need to go into too much, but anyway the windows security center is telling me that Norton 360 is on, that's a problem for me since Norton hasn't been configured. I'm begging to think that my security center is lying though, because i've ran the norton removal tool, and i searched for norton 360 on my computer, and i looked up all of my proccesses, but i got nothing, no traces of norton at all. If i have norton on it's a problem for me, since it's not configured the right way for something, so does anyone know has the security center been know to be wrong?

Windows Security Center is not perfect. I've seen issues like these pop up from time to time. Just ignore it.

Norton must still be registered with WSC.

I set my windows security center to "I have an antivirus/firewall that I manage myself, stop bothering me" or whatever is the precise way they say it in english... no problem.

Get nod32(is more better than norton)+Zone alarm pro 7 and forget about windows security center. Zone alarm+nod32 is the best security solution and I use it from a long tine and I never have problems.

I could say the same about a system that only has Windows Firewall protecting it...

Agree in so far as NOD32 is probably the best commercial AV app out there, however unless you really want a software firewall that routinely fucks your TCP/IP stack I would steer clear of ZA tbh.

I have the windows firewall disabled. IMO the person using the computer is the best defense. I just have a strong perimeter defense and its always been good enough.

I don't run any virus scanners at all, and then I just do a virus scan every few months. I have been doing if for years and I have yet to get a virus. On the other hand, I wouldn't recommend that anybody that doesn't understand what they are doing takes this route.
