Norton Nightmare or ISP Ignorance?

I only have knowledge of what kind of experience there is to be endured when using the particular Norton security product that I have used, which is the basis of this post to other pc users more experience and well-versed than I on this topic.   I read great reviews online about Norton Security so why am I living in a Norton Nightmare?  Can anyone tell me if there is a difference in a Norton product that is provided by and purchased directly from Norton and the Norton security service that is provided by my internet service provider?  (pardon me if I am a bit techno-deficient but I know just enough to be dangerous and Norton seems to be having a field day with it! LOL) 

I am not laughing, however, when I say that my concerns are severe, unresolved, and appear to be totally unconsidered by any level of “support” that I have dealt with over the last few years.  It has been an exhausting experience.  I will need to purchase or make some other arrangements very soon for a stand-alone product for my computer security. *(and services or any other “HELP” for vulnerabilities, updates, scams, all that monkey-shine that a simple, honest person is not privy to.) This Norton product and service has been consistent, thorough and dependable in passing the buck and dodging the bullet!  

So, believe what I read online about Norton Security or Symantec, or is my ordeal ordinary?

Thanks so much for any advice. Grace and Peace to all!

Are you talking about Norton Security being provided by your ISP for free?   Your post is a little hard to understand your underlying issue.
