The name norton security is used generically quite often....

 

What is the full name of the norton product you have and which OS are you using ?

Going back with Windows Defender and Malwarebytes Anti Malware Premium. My Norton Security will expire in less than 2 months, and can you provide the download link? Thanks, ATY.

Windows Defender info can be found here

 

It should automatically turn itself on when norton has been removed and you have rebooted.

 

Malwarebytes

 

Clik on the appropriate link to upgrade to Premium, after downloading

I've been running this type of layered approach for several months now - running MSE instead of Defender because I'm still running Windows 7 - but it's been working great for both of the main machines in my house.

sage indicating your system has no protection...click here to turn on Windows Defender. If not, and Defender remains disabled, you will need to manually turn it on.
