Hello,

 

 

My first thing I want to say, Geee I sure hope I'am in the right place to post my problem, if I'am not you can bring it to my attention and shout at me and let me have it I guess. And if I have posted on this topic before excuse me on that.  but I hope I have not posted this before.

 

I have been looking into my pc system and going over some issues, & my pc does show in the report that there is a anti virus product listed on my pc.  & I know there is one.  some were along the line I would like to know your opinion of what might be happening and my thinking is this is just something simple that I have over looked.

 

I ran security check from bleeping and the download is the one that shows what security listed.  and the security listed that there is a anti virus running.

 

here is what the security noted. thank you for reading

Thankyou for the reply,

 

About the adobe reader, I knew that was outdated I just over looked that and  adobe showed up on the system health check as outdated. 

 

I checked the programs and the installed adobe reads I have the updated version as 11.9.900.152 so I figured that was up to date But that is not correct.

 

Thanks for the new version.

No not having performance issues that I'am aware of altho I did have some issues with the drivers causing windows to resume slowly but I still don't realy know if that is fixed.  I did a performance check again and that report is good I hope it still is.  might need to run a new performance test.

Your Security Check log shows Norton ccSvcHst.exe.

Did you ever have any Symantec Products installed, i.e. Norton Internet Security or Norton AntiVirus?

No I never installed norton think norton was programmed into the laptop when I got it.  I never installed it.

 

I did the security check myself in control panel and is listed as MSE which is what I'am using.  I sent the details of that in my posts. I know you see norton but   is not what I'am using

It is not uncommon for manufacturers to include trail versions of Norton products on the systems they sell. Some folks never activate it while others forget to remove before installing the anti-virus of their choice.

There is also some kind of Norton "check-up" program (which could be considered a rogue antivirus program) that runs a background process called ccsvchst.exe. I remember Toshiba nagging me to activate it after I bought my laptop (and then activating it after I sent it back for repair four months later), but I don't remember its exact name.

Why sure that is the kicker you are right. 

 

Also I never used norton I never intended to use norton, is like anythign else I guess.

 

I guess norton is just as good as anything out there I don't know but I'am sure there is something better.

 

I keep hearing bout kapersky how good that is. 

 

will go and uninstall norton, thank you for the link to uninstall. :clapping:
