Norton 360 was installed, I did a full scan, and it found nothing...MUST SM

Posted By: Infected MT on 2009-05-28
In Reply to: interesting... - sm

I downloaded Malwarebytes and it found 12 critical trojans!! As soon as I find a good AV program, I'm totally uninstalling Norton's. Like you, I thought Norton was great and used it for years. Maybe it's just not keeping up with all the techno-creeps out there that have nothing better to do destroy the PCs of working people. UGH!!

New company software installed? You might have Their printer installed as default. You'd have to
Norton Internet Security does this. Costs the same as Norton AV and includes it.

has a user list, which you, as administrator, can have password protected so users cannot change the list. What we do is put on sites that we approve. Anything else has to be done on the laptop in view...

You can buy Internet Security every year anytime from Jan through April tax time, and get rebates. Just as cheap as NAV and includes it, as I said.


I have found that when you switch over to other accounts that have a full staff then you have no
work anyway because the main people have the account and if they have had it for awhile it seems the clients like that. Sometimes best to hit a new account when they get it to start from scratch. Many times if an account is full of MTs they wont move you on it.
can you use Firefox with Norton? I have Norton, but some popups still get through. nm
I installed it and then installed the other schemes. SM
I put the erotic on. It is pretty funny when you go slow. Thanks, I needed that laugh. :O)
Norton vs. McAfee. Go with Norton. nm
Full Core means full CPR code.
Scan it in.

Copy the pic.  When you go into word, just view "header/footer" and paste in the pic.  This has worked for me. 

Yeah, but full-time lines does not necessarily mean full-time hours, so I would do it if your produc
do paragraph, then scan over it
I listen as I go along also.  It really gets to be quite easy.  To reread the report definitely would cost money.  I do a paragraph or so and as the doctor is shuffling papers or gathering his thoughts, not really dictating, I scan down the paragraph to make sure it is okay.
chalasia scan
achalasia cardia scan for gastroesophageal reflux disorder
Just run a scan of the C drive with the AVG - sm
it will scan everything and let you know if it finds anything. It automatically quantines them I believe so you should have any any problams in any case.
Why do you pay for Norton when
you can get AVG for free and it constantly updates itself.....?
Norton v. AVG
Go with Norton.  Do the research.  It's worth every dime.

I have Windows XP, service pack 2.  Norton works fantastic.  It catches everything.  I do remember having trouble with downloading at first. Just uninstall and try again. You'll be glad you did.  Run Ad-Aware and Spybot every few days and you're good-to-go.


There's a difference between the free version of Norton/AVG and the pay-for-it versions. I paid $50 for Norton 2005. With AVG or Norton, I believe you need to pay for it to get the protection you need. 

Even if you uninstall it, Norton "knows" you had it in your computer, and it won't re-start itself. When you go to hook up to the internet to do the updates, it won't work. In my experience, the only way to get Norton again for free is to reformat your hard drive. You kinda have to know what you are doing and it is a big pain in the neck. You have to have all your programs on disk to be re-installed, and all files backed up on disc... but it does work. I did it a couple of times and I saved about $100 in doing so, but I really had nothing on my computer to mess up, so I went for it. I would definitely go for the free programs you can find on the net first!!!
Norton Utilities has a program called WinDoctor that does the same thing and it's awesome.
I just installed ShortHand. I need help!

Does anyone know if ShortHand can be set up to insert superscripts and subscripts?  I imported all of my Autocorrect entries from Word, but it wouldn't import the formatted text.  For example, can ShortHand be set up to convert the "c" in A1c to subscript?  I really appreciate any help on this!

Losr wp5.1 when XP installed sm
I always kept WP5.2 for DOS in case a client had a moldly oldy and I truly enjoyed having it on hand. When my new tower came in, I realized that WP5.1 was, of course, gone for good, as the tech gave me a new tower with XP. I have the diskettes and wonder if I did have an old WP5.1 job come in, is it possible to install with XP or is DOS necessary and is it gone forever? Love WP5.1, made me lots of money in this field, it was my "buddy" and I feel I lost a good friend. Crazy? Yes!!
I have installed it at least 3 times

due to computer problems where I've had to dump my hard drive and reinstall everything. 

I don't know if you are talking about disks that you bought or disks that came with a new computer. 

Gee, don't know :o(. Have you installed all drivers?
I don't have an Ativa. I wish I could help!
I've had up to 4 installed at once and
executive body scan???
Could this be correct?  Outcoming being discovery of gallstones.
try googling "achalasia scan." nm
it's true...go to MSNBC.COM and scan down. :-( nm


Please help with PET scan on Word Board
Scan through and hopefully catch mistakes as I go. sm
That don't pay me enough this day and time to proof every single word I type. Take our wages minus IC expenses and we aren't making much. I look at it like you pay for what you get sometimes. Now that isn't to say I don't care about quality as I do. I just proof as I go and try my best to catch it and be accurate but I do have 15 yrs exp and can usually tell immediately if I have made a typo. I may get a he or she mixed up here and there but no major errors in the report.
You have dragon scan your documents and -
it picks up words it does not know and has you train them, and it also recognizes words that you use more than others.
AVG free virus scan
try an off-site, online scan
Go to www.bitdefender.com and use their online scanning. It is very good. If you've got anything, it will get rid of it. Highly recommended.
How to bill for HIDA scan?

I know HIDA scans are nuke med but would they fall into the category of CT/MRI/PET or US/DEXA for billing purposes?

I say CT/MRI/PET but please correct me if I'm wrong.

Norton vs. McAfee..which best?sm
Just got a new laptop that came with McAfee..now they are offering me subscription for half price...$69.00...I've always used Norton before and wondering if there is any difference.
I have never had any problems, I have it installed on 3 computers,
I don't have the current version on my laptop as yet (don't use my old computer anymore, would if the other 2 died though....kids have it for playing CD programs, etc. But never had any problems with downloading, installing, etc.
MTStars spellcheck help - I just installed it and
do not see the "checkmark" button at the top with my other browser buttons.  How do I access the spellcheck?  It is installed and shows as a program on my list of programs.  Help!!!!
I'm assuming you installed the software that came with?
If so, and don't laugh, did you try rebooting? I always do that first before I worry about any computer issues. If it doesn't take care of it then go back and make sure you followed the installation steps exactly. Is it the Mircrosoft Natural Ergonomic 4000? I have that and it's great...only thing I could complain about is it's rather wide, so when I do need to use my mouse, my arm has to reach a little farther, which isn't good ergonomically, but I do everything I can to avoid using the mouse anyway...oops, I digress! Good luck with your keyboard!
If it has never been installed on another machine, then you are fine. sm
I have bought OEM software off or Ebay, came with registration numbers never used, and it was fine. I was able to register and access support.
It you purchase a new pc, it may not come with Vista installed. However, sm
it most certainty will be "Vista ready," meaning, you will have all the specs you need to perform the upgrade.
Word 2007 installed and...

I lost my Stedman's and all of my auto corrects, but everything else seemed to be alright :)

I had to reinstall Stedman's and thank goodness I backed everything up so I had my auto corrects!!


I use the free one; not installed or paid for
I think the free (run-it-when-you-need-it) is great! Sure, the real-time protection and monitoring would be great, but I'm on a budget, and I can run their free version as often as I would like (takes about 2 hours, so usually right before I go to bed) and it finds all kinds of alleged 'problems' and I tell it to fix them, and it does. Sure seems to have been helping me, but it could be that in combination with all the other things I'm trying.
My husband tried the 'free trial' on his laptop that you actually download for real-time coverage, and it apparently REALLY bogged his computer down (so he says) and he had to take it off within a couple of days.
Any help?
I use IT. I highly recommend you have it installed.
date element in Meditech is F6, I think. Press F keys all the way. Then, try alt and the F keys all the way down and then control and F keys to see what their functions are. You can jot them down on paper and make it into a toolbar by taping it to the keyboard. Now that I think of it, if you have a Help Desk, they may have a copy of the F key functions to send you.

And also, you will need a speed typing engine which will be well worth the money.
It won't work. Stedman's has to be installed from
the disks.   You can't even copy it a flash drive and then try to install it on another computer.  
Has anyone ever heard of or has had a chalasia scan for GERD? sm

My 4 y/o daughter is scheduled to have this done tomorrow AM. I have tried to Google it, but not getting much info on it. She was at a specialist today and they scheduled her to go to the Childrens Hosp for a Chalasia scan, which is also referred to as a gastroesophogeal reflux scan. Any info would be much appreciated. thanks

maybe it's time for a scan disk and defrag....sm
First, I'd do a scan disk and then defragmentation and then reboot the computer.  If it's still freezing, perhaps you are running out of space (?) and/or need more RAM (memory) which is cheap to buy today.  Also, while you ran a virus scan - do you have a program similar to spybot?  They pick up things that sometimes get past your virus scanner.  Hope it works out for you! 
I do a restart every morning after I run spyware scan.
There is a Technetium MAG3 scan. Not sure about the numbers used.
Hope this helps.
I just keep Norton I suppose and never checked into anything else.
Thanks, will do. About 3 nights ago my Norton caught
Did you notice the Feb 3 date?  That would be this coming Friday.  Wonder how our various transcription companies are going to fare?  ugh.  I hope they don't crash. 
My Norton or my Outlook Express? (sm)
For some reason, for the last 2 or 3 days, when I am sending an email, that little Norton box that pops up is taking a long time to appear, like maybe about 15 seconds or so.  It used to be as soon as I hit "send."  Is this a problem with my email or my Norton? and is it a big deal?  Just wondering why the change.  Thanks
My Norton subscription is about to expire.
I can't afford that $40 renewal fee right now.  What can I do? 
HP/Quicken/Norton outsource
I agree.  My printer/fax machine died and had to get a new one.  There was a piece in the way so that I could not get the ink in, so had to call Customer Service.  Two hours later, with understanding only 1/3 of what he said, I finally got the information I needed.  My computer crashed on me (not a good year), had to call HP and Norton, both of which use India for their Customer Service - finally went and bought a new computer as got no help.  Couldn't get my Quicken loaded, so called the help desk, and guess what!  He was not understanding my question/problem at all.  It's like I cannot get into that part or I would not be asking for help!  Finally, a friend of mine helped me and got into it so I could do a backup to restore my data.  I am sick of this so-called "service", and sure hope American companies, hospitals in particular catch on soon before our whole world crashes down on us.
