    HI Count Mike
    I click my laptop to run Defender offline and the process begins as it should. My desktop which is similar does not respond when I click on the scan off line button.
    That is my problem.
    Any ideas,
    Peter
    Have a look at this tutorial and see if it helps to get the offline scan going

    mmmmmmmmmm disagree


    I have just joined.. And then was doing search if i should use windows firewall or norton..
    Im currently using A.V.Norton Security Deluxe

    And it works fine with windows 10.. BUT ! - Read = Microsoft Windows 10 (all versions) . BUT Edge browser not supported..
    But please dont use,
    Norton Security Toolbar
    Norton Safe Search as default for Chrome
    Norton Identity Safe
    Norton Home Page for Chrome

    And then i use Malwarebytes FREE !
    SuperAntiSpyware.Free
    SpyWareBlaster.

    I use to be a die hard Avast Free user. But dont like the changes they made in the last few year's..

    Using defender i had stuff slip in, and im a very basic P.C. user...
    But still cant decide to use norton firewall or windows..

    Norton says this:

    "I want to disable the Limited Periodic Scanning in Microsoft Windows Defender


    Microsoft is making a strong effort to convince consumers that the Windows operating system is secure. One way that Microsoft has chosen to make this case to consumers is by encouraging consumers to enable Windows Defender to perform a periodic scan. When enabled this scan will run even when another 3rd party security solution is enabled.
    We do not recommend enabling Windows Defender's periodic scanning feature on a Windows 10 system running Norton. Periodic scanning is redundant and will require unnecessary additional power consumption and may result in conflicting notifications and messaging.
    Norton products provide a more comprehensive and complete protection. To know more, read Why should I stay with Norton instead of choosing Microsoft Windows Defender?"


    I don't see why some call Norton "a joke" when Defender only scans and updates periodically. In my experience, both Defender and Norton have missed viruses they should have caught. When I check the logs, I see that neither one has done much besides gorging themselves on "cookies". There is just too much disagreement on this subject for the average user to figure out what he should do.

    My offline scan now works- I think I used an image recovery but it was a while ago.
    I use Defender, MBAM, native firewall set to default and the ISP firewall I have configured.
    I will be bridging their firewall and using my own.

    I wonder how many agree with this statement, made by Jimbo 45 last year : "Norton was a joke long before W10 was even THOUGHT OF. !! You don't need ANY A/V on W10 other than the built in Windows defender. " Norton seems not to be very highly regarded but I've not had any problems with it, tho I don't like its interface.

    I'm not disputing it, I just don't know and I get tired of paying for junk.

    Any talk of whats the best program to use to protect your PC is going to draw lots of opinions, good and bad. Bottom line is choose one you like, either free or paid. I've been using Norton on 2 computers for years, along with Mbam and SAS. Never had a problem. I don't trust Windows Defender, but thats MY Choice. You should make your own mind up on what you want to run. Good Luck on whatever you decide.

    Good advice but for one minor detail. How do you make up your own mind when you don't know crap about this subject? Oh, sure, we've heard innumerable opinions but you know what they say about opinions. Everybody has one and they're all based on different experiences. That said, maybe its best if:
    (A) It ain't broke, don't fix it. OR -
    (B) If it let's you down, time to move on
    Is that about the size of it????

    We've used Norton for about five years on four business machines connected to the 'net and have had maybe two incidents, both of which Norton Customer Service found, removed and repaired the damage at N/C. Not perfect, but hard to complain about that.

    I agree with you on Norton's Customer Service, they have always been good to me over the years. I've been using Norton for more than 5 years myself. BUT I don't just rely on Norton alone either. I also run Malwarebytes Premium and SuperAntiSpyware Pro. Sounds like you've made your choice, at least for now.

    ,
    Norton Security Toolbar
    Norton Safe Search as default for Chrome
    Norton Identity Safe
    Norton Home Page for Chrome
