Talking Computer Problem

I have a computer problem. Well sorta, its a problem with my friends computer. He just built a new computer that I helped him with. Now, after about a week of him having it he is having a problem. Whenever he tries to use windows updates to search for new updates, or run certain things on some sites, he gets an error message saying : Your current security settings prohibit ActiveX controls on this page. As a result, the page may not display properly". Now I tried going to tools and changeing IE security options etc, but that does nothing. Im at a loss here, Cuz I installed Windows for him and installed windows updates, and it worked fine. I dont know what he could have done to mess it up. It is also messing up when he tries to instal Norton Anti-virus. So does anyone know what the probelm is?

Once you have Norton installed on your system, the Norton AntiVirus eats up 39MB of memory, while Internet Security eats up another 20-40MB while you are surfing. So don't bother to use Norton if you don't have at least 512MB of RAM.

Try to use NOD32, Mcafee or ZoneAlarm Pro to save memory.

Pc-Cillin is the only program you should be getting. Theres no room for discussion on this.

Tell me Alucard, how much memory does PC-Cillin use up? I am planning to get rid of my Norton Anti-Virus, want to get something faster and less consuming.

I heard NOD32 only uses half the memory Norton requires.

Unless I'm reading it wrong, looks like 3megs. Either way its the best out there. There really isn't any option if you seriously want a virus scanner.

You know what? I tried F-Prot, it only takes up 760k memory, it seems to load much faster than NAV2004, and definitely taking up much less space than PC-Cillin.

Dont even go to F-Prot. Thats like downgrading yourself from something useless to something beyond useless. PC-cillin is the best. Quit arguing!

hmm I dont eve know what NOD32 is? OH and that little probelm my friend was having, it turns out it was a virus. His brothers friend ended up having the same problem before with a virus that prevents your from installing Norton and other stuff. Had to reformat and re-install XP, but now his computer is working awesome.

Well thats opposite to the other graph I saw that had Trend on top. Apart from actually having seen a few systems remove Norton and then install Pc-cillin and finding small viruses/spyware on their system. I'll stick to the one thats actually helped me compared to the others that have ignored stuff. That graph is just way dodgy.

You must be using Norton 2003 before right? I had the same problem before, I was forced to get rid of Norton from my system because that virus stopped all the Norton stuffs from working.

I heard the virus actually came from Norton's infected Liveupdate server, although they never admitted it.
