I have a new Dell with Norton Internet Security 2006 on it and it won't let me send e-mail unless I disable Norton Internet Security. Disabling the Norton Firewall, AntiVirus, e-mail scanning etc doesn't help. Both Symantec and Dell have been less than helpful. Any ideas? XP Home OS.

Is this the trial version?

if it is, I would recommend looking at a free antivirus, such as Avira, AVG or Avast, also there are several good free firewalls. Here is a link to a forum topic here on Bleepingcomputer that has an extensive list of excellent free programs:

Thanks for the info. It is the trial version of Norton, and I highly doubt that I'll convert it to paid.

My earlier versions of Norton worked fairly well, what happened to them?

I use Adaware and have a paid license to Software Doctor. Any suggestions for a mix
and match suite from those lists that will give fairly complete protection to a Windows XP machine?

Hello SarasotaHuskie and welcome to BC, I'd suggest ...........
First I would download AVG free and firewall (or wall of your choice),Spybot S&D, and spyware blaster Save them to desktop to install and update later. Keep the AdAware

Then follow these instructions form the Forum Tutorial Removal instructions for most Symantec Norton products

Now go to your desktop and install the AVG & firewall. Spybot & blaster. Don't forget to update immmediately. Also as these are free you'll need to update them manually about once a week. Thy are excellent programs.....
You can also add SUPERantispyware to compliment Software Doctor

As you can see there are tutorials for each product on the freeware page...

If you want automatic updating of the anti virus, try avast once registered, it is good for one year, and the boottime scan/removal feature is excellent.
