Question: Need help or Norton tech support email addy

Norton discovered a virus on my computer yesterday named W32.HLLW.Gaobot.gen

I could not repair, so I tried to download 'fix' file and I couldn't get on the Symantec website. I can't run liveupdate, and no matter what site I go to to get to Symantec it says not found.

I went to my neigbors and downloaded the fix, did the fix, reformated my hard drive and loaded XP home, (needed to do this and thought might as well now) got everything reloaded, installed, no problem, except the Norton, still can't live update or even get on their site

This morning I woke up to find my Norton open, saying I had the same virus again, I again, did the fix, says it is fixed but still cannot get on Nortons site?

I don't know if settings are wrong, I messed with everything under the internet security, added norton/symantec as trusted sites. I would like to just email symantec tech support, but I can't find their email address anywhere, I have even tried to guess at what it is but they came back

HELP...please someone, tell me how to fix my problem or let me know the tech support addy.

Kindest regards,

Preferred Solution: Need help or Norton tech support email addy

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I upgraded from norton internet 07 to N 360. When I power up computer I get a message
"Auto-Protect experienced an unexpected error 0x000003E8 3035,6"

When I tried to install N 360 got message "Extraction failed. File corrupt"

Norton online support instructed me to remove all existing norton with following link :

Did that, then the instruction was to click a link to reinstall N 360. Did that but still get the "Extraction failed. File corrupt"

Now I cannot get back to Norton support. All links just produce a blank page. I am in Thailand on a pay-per-minute connection, ready to shoot myself. help

I like my system to be finetuned, and Norton has many services that hog up memory.

So what i did was disable all Norton and Symantec services so when i game i can have that memory. After Disabling the services by clicking Start,Run then typing services.msc in windows xp all was good for a few days then all the sudden i get some error telling me my key is no longer good or something to that extent of a message.

My goal was to disable them all and turn them all back on when i want it running. Seems they have a few services or one that led to the cancellation.

After 5 emails back and forth with tech support they simply or the one person cannot answer anything. he is just giving me run-around basically. I asked to get this stepped up to level 2 or even a 3 if they have one in the tech support and so far have received no reply.

I know Mcafee when i had it would allow me to disable all the services and turn them back on and not LOSE your account and have to be reactivated.

Sure it would be nice to go back to Mcafee atm, but spending alot of money on virus scanners al the time can get to your pocket and AVG does not detect alot compared to the big names.

Anyone else have problems or no problems with Disabling the services and turning them back on when you need it to be running ? Theres only like 7of them + or -.

If Norton doesnt give me an answer soon sure i will go back to Mcafee and they lost a customer for life. Theres no reason whatsover that you should not ... Read more

There used to be a well-hidden location on the Symantec Web site where SOME assistance with their software could be handled by email--anyone know if that still exists--I could not locate it.

I need their help to determine how to solve the inability of the latest LiveUpdater to successfully update the Norton 2005 AntiSpam Components and Norton 2006 Norton AntiVirus Norton Program Update (English).

Although I have been a loyal Norton user since Peter Norton started the company, I will NEVER use their products again.

It is also amazing that with updated antivirus definitions, one or two of the new Zlob Trojans got into my computer and Norton could not find them or keep them out, although Panda and Ewido's online scans found these Trojans once my computer was infected.

I have a friend with Adelphia as her ISP, and her daughter had set up a Yahoo addy but has since moved away. She has called Yahoo and deactivated the addy,but apparently it is still on her computer.I think she is using Outlook,but not sure. Often when she will send me an email and I reply,it will be returned to me because it will be the Yahoo one. How does she rid herself of the addy? Thanks Keith

Answer:Can't get rid of email addy

Is the e-mail that she sends to you show that it was sent from the Yahoo account? It is usually possible in e-mail client software to give a "reply to" address that is different than the senders address. This may be the case for your friend.

The incoming e-mail message header will usually show what e-mail software was used to compose and send the message. You should be able to examine the header to determine if your friend is using Outlook.

In Outlook Tools menu -> E-mail Accounts ... there is an option to View or Change Existing Accounts. You can then Remove any old accounts from the list.

I'm using HOtmail in Outlook Express. Is there a way to forward an email to several people without each persons email addy showing up? Don't know if that's clear - but what I'm trying to do is pass a msg along to a group of people without each person seeing who else got the msg.

Answer:Is there a way to forward a msg w/o forwarding everyone's email addy


Copy the e-mail into a new e-mail.

Address it to yourself at another e-mail address or possibly your Hotmail address and then put all the e-mail addresses of all the other people you want to send it to the BCC field.

Now send the e-mail.

None of the people you send it to ( in the BCC field) will see the other peoples e-mail addresses.

You could also look at groups in Outlook Express.

One problem you may have is that your ISP may see an e-mail you are sending to numerous people as attempts to send spam e-mails and block it / them.

I keep receiving calls from fake MICROSOFT Tech support with various telephone numbers. Strange, they do not show up in my phone on line logs. They wanted me to go to FASTSUPPORT\763721586 ( do not use  these numbers). It is a company  called they also give you a complaint department where you can enter the number that you feel is causing you problems, the number of the LOGMEINRESCUE type remote access code. of course it is clear to them that you are suspicious and they will get rid of the  phone operator who didn't succeed.

The scams may involve web pages with screenshots of fake Microsoft (Windows) Support messages, fake reports of suspicious activity, fake warnings of malware found on your computer, fake ransomware and fake BSODs all of which include a tech support phone number to call in order to fix the problem.

I have a T430s laptop and it is less than 6 months old. It starting getting blue screens within a month of purchasing it. Technical support has been helpless in trying to fix the laptop. First, tech support told me to turn update my computer daily. Then another tech support employee told me to turn OFF my auto updates. This did nothing and over a few weeks the blue screens progressively got worse. Next, tech support told me to run a diagnostic on my computer which turned up nothing. Then, they tried giving me recovery discs and a new hard drive. After that failed they took it in to replace the system board which made the blue screens worse. Then they sent me MORE recovery CDs to try to fix the problem and that also made the blue screens worse. I called tech support after this and they said they would send in a request for a replacement laptop. I was told I would hear from someone in a couple days. FIVE days later I got a called from someone asking if I wanted a replacement and I said yes. Then I was told I had to wait two more business days to get contacted about it. Another 3-4 business days later, someone called me to tell me that they would NOT be replacing the laptop despite the fact tech support could not fix the laptop. After calling tech support once again, I was told that they wanted me to send in my laptop again for up to 7 business days! This is completely unacceptable.

I have a Thinkpad T450s and it is just over a year old. It still has 3 more years of warranty. Edit: Warranty type: TPJ (This product has a four year limited warranty which includes a warranty upgrade. This product is entitled to parts and labor and is entitled to Depot service).Recently the lenovo solution center gave an critical error for the HDD (Read test failure) and I submitted an online request reporting it. Without even sending me an email or contacting me, they sent me a new part and gave me zero information about it. Apparently every other person can replace a HDD now!  I have created 3 more cases calling their tech support to send the laptop for a depo repair. Everytime the request is rejected 'at the vendor' according to the customer care. Neither the customer care people or tech support can tell me why. Every time they create a new case, tell me I will receive a depo bag nect day, and I dont receive anything, have to call depo customer care and on hold for minimum 40 minutes, only to hear that the case has been rejected they dont know why.One tech support told me now I have to send the new part back before creating a new case, otherwise it will be rejected again. but he does not know how I can send the new part back. The return label sent to me was for the faulty HDD.Can anyone help? What is the point of paying for warranty if I receive this type of service? 

Answer:HORRIBLE tech support and warranty support

You do not state which type of warranty you currently have, there are a few which will affect how TS will or can respond. I hope you get this resolved to your satisfaction...

To: Tech Support Guy Staff & All Other Dignitaries

I just wanna say that I LOVE Tech Support Guy. My first encounter was a few months ago, when I woke up one morning and found that my homepage had been hijacked by Searchv. I couldn't get rid of it. So I googled until I got to Tech Support Guy, and found that somebody else had the same problem. I followed the instructions and was rid of searchv. Via HijackThis. Jeez, I like that name.....HijackThis. And then came Ad-aware, and Spybot, and a whole new world was opened up to me. To top it off, it's all free. Not quite. I'm sending you guys a donation. You earned it.

Unfortunately we will not assist with that issue
One of the site rules is
Please do not ask for assistance with (or ways to bypass) a forgotten or unknown password, personal identification number (PIN) or any other type of access code that may be required on a computer, mobile device or web site. As there is no way to verify the actual situation or intent, no assistance will be provided and any such threads will be closed.Click to expand...

Please do understand that we are not doubting what YOU say, simply that we have no way of verifying that your explanation is the truth.
If for instance your computer was stolen or accessed without your permission and we enabled the person responsible to gain access to your computer, you would not be very pleased.

Sorry we cannot help
Our only suggestion is a clean install of Windows using the product key on the case of the computer if there is one.

Hi Debbie, and welcome to TSG.

If this is your computer (, it has a VGA video output connector.

Your TV would need to have a VGA, DVI-A, or DVI-I video input jack. The TV would also need to support at least one of the video resolutions and refresh rates that the computer can feed to the VGA connector.

For greyknight17:

The greyknight quests in troubled lands
Where truth is hid in shifting sands;
Elusive demons there do dwell
Of deadly might and visage fell,
Wresting power from local lords
With blue screen shields and pop up swords,
They lay waste to all they see,
Leaving nothing as it used to be;
But with bright sword and favored lance,
Our champion makes the devils dance
To a tune they hear and can’t resist,
Something like: “Stop and desist”,
And in the end, their fate is writ
With mighty scans and combo script
And so with bow and courtly praise
A toast to you, greyknight, I raise:
“Thank you sir for work well done,
Evil slain and battle won;
The blue screen of death is banished here,
And we’re computing now without fear.”

The tech has me do a few things and he even takes control of the computer and does some things. Of course, immediately thereafter everything seems to be working fine but eventually I get this screen.  This morning, 08/10/17 the computer gave me the screen I have attached, I sent the technician the picture of the screen and he sends me this response

I think my hard drive or worse, my computer is failing.  I have warranty until 01/19.  What can I do? If I keep calling nothing seems to get fixed.

Answer:No help from tech support

Remove your service request number because it may allow a scammer to access your personal info.
Always include exact PC model and version of Windows in your posts.
It's possible (1) the hard drive failed, (2)  BIOS is mis-configured, or (3) the boot sequence is incorrect.
For starters, you can power off and unplug the PC. Press/hold power button for ~15 sec. Open the case and find the cable that goes from the SATA0 connector on the motherboard (possibly a blue motherboard connector) to the hard drive. Carefully reseat the cable at both ends. Then check the power cable connection from the power supply to that same hard drive. Close up and see if it boots now.
And obviously, if it's under warranty you have to get tech support to assist. You can call them again if they haven't responded. Give whoever answers your Request number and your Service Tag. They should be able to help you.

My computer has become very slow in loading programs such as Firefox. Once it is loaded it doesn't work smoothly as before. Not Responding message appears and everything stops working for a while. Scrolling also doesn't always work. Sometimes the arrow changes to the hourglass and stops working. After a while it changes back to the arrow again and so it continues.

Quite regularly I get the "script not working" message window in the middle of the screen with "continue" or "cancel" options. Sometimes it is the Shockwave plugin and at other times it is Google or other script. And often the end program command doesn't work. For the last few days, script error message for Internet Explorer comes on at powering up.

I have been thinking of reloading Windows but with no more Microsoft support for XP I don't know how I am going to get the updates.

I know the laptop is very old(2001) but I really use it mainly to check emails. Any help in resolving the above issues would be highly appreciated.

Thank you.



First off, All updates are available for Windows XP and will continue to be available till the end of time. There will just not be any NEW updates for XP. I just installed XP on an old computer 2 days ago and ran all of 142 Windows Updates.
As for your current installation, try running a Clean Boot. If this works then add one startup item at a time, restarting each time till the computer becomes unresponsive, then you know what the problematic program is.
Also, go to Start/Run and type chkdsk C: /R and press enter, in the command prompt type a Y for Yes and reboot the computer. Check Disk will go thorough 5 stages and takes some time. It will check your HDD for integirty.

I bought a new PSU, that came in the mail today. Once I started up the computer I discovered that my USB ports don't work. Last Friday when my video card died, my 4 year old broke the two front USB ports. The computer's manufacturer surmises this shorted out the back ports and now wants to replace the motherboard and case. Both are under warranty, thank goodness.

So now my conundrum, I didn't buy the new PSU from the manufacturer, but it is the same brand as my old one. Do I just send the box back with the new one (which lets them organize the cables ten times better than I can) or do I put the old one back in? Or do I send both? There is nothing wrong with the old PSU, it's just not powerful enough for my new graphics card, which is NOT leaving my possession!

I'm sure I'm over thinking this, I just don't want to be screwed over.

Thank you for any help or advice.

So, like most people should, I use an ad blocker. Also, like most people should, sites that you enjoy or visit a lot, you should contribute to them. This can be easily done by turning off your ad blocker for that one particular site. I did that for Tech Support Guy and the ads were still blocked.

I'm using Firefox and I started disabling some of the privacy features that I use. I disabled Tracking Protection and the ads appeared. Great.. or so I thought. There isn't anyway to disable tracking protection on a particular site. Technically, you can, but it's session based. After I close FF and start it back up, it doesn't keep my individual preference for TSG.

I wasn't sure if FF by default enabled Tracking Protection or not. I mean, if it is enabled by default, then EVERY guest user that visits TSG on FF is not seeing ads, meaning TSG is missing out on a lot of profits.

So on another computer, I completely removed FF and downloaded a fresh, uncustomized copy. Tracking Protection is enabled by default, but oddly, I now saw ads on TSG. Back to the drawing board.

I started customizing this fresh install of FF and after enabling Never Remember History, I no longer had ads. So it appears that this isn't one feature of FF blocking ads on TSG, but 2. If I disable one of the features (doesn't matter which), ads appear. It's only when BOTH features are enabled that ads disappear.

So my question is how can I allow only ads on TSG without havin... Read more

I bought Windows 7 from and when I called up Microsoft for support they told me that they don't support open windows 7 what ever that means. So I paid the same price but no support because I didn't buy it from Microsoft. I'm just confused. Can someone explain this to me or was the tech person just full of crap?

Answer:No Tech Support for Windows 7?

Yes, MS supports any retail copy with the best funded Tech Support in the business.

I also bought Amazon (for the free shipping) pre-order Upgrade and have gotten MS support already.

They are required by policy to troubleshoot to completion any issue, even elevating to a research team that communicates with the developer teams, as long as customer is cooperative.

As with any tech support you may get a bad agent or someone having a bad day. I always politely hang up and call back.

In the past by being appreciative and eager to learn, I have gotten a full education in clean reinstalls w/o bloatware, virus hunting, optimization, etc. - worth far more than the price of the product.

Question: Tech Support Scam

I am posting regarding the scam you have covered in this link
It's the 'Remove the Windows has been Blocked Tech Support Scam'
However, unfortunately I did call the number, and when they wanted money I said absolutely not. Now, when I power up that PC, I get a pop-up that asks for admin password (not the Windows or BIOS popup). I tried command prompt, system restore, and reinstalling windows deleting everything but what was installed and personal files, and still the same popup requesting a password. I tried Esc, and cancel and enter, all not working. 
Any suggestions? Any help at all greatly appreciated

Answer:Tech Support Scam

 If this happened to me, I'd restore from a recent full system backup.  If you don't have one, you'll probably need to do a clean install.

Anyone know of an anti virus that has tech support in the USA? I'm sick of paying for tech support for my businesses only to get routed to India w/ generic card reading tech guys.

Answer:Antivirus Tech support

The best solution would be to choose a product that requires a minimal amount of support in the first place -- regardless of the location of the software company's tech support.

Antivirus is not a complicated thing these days.

What product are you currently using?

If its not ESET -- many will chime in very quickly about how great it is (and I will agree with them).

Question: Tech Support Scams

Just wanted to share this experience with you all. Viruses can be a tricky thing, causing all kinds of damage and ruining your day, week, month, or even year. In times like that the weekest cowardly people come out of the woodwork and scare you into financial submission, and i want you to not be fooled by fast talking snake oil salesmen.

desktop win7 wired connection
desktop win XP sp3 wired connection, installing wireless adapter.
laptop winXP wireless
Belkin router

I had a desktop that was a wired connectoion and wanted to give it to my kid, so i got a wireless network card and installed it. The card seemed to be working fine, but it would not connect to the internet. (it would hang on "aquiring a network address" then error out saying windows coudlnt connect..)
I called Belkin tech support who tried a bunch of nonsence scare tactics to make me believe my registry was corrupt and that i had a virus. end result- pay them money and they would fix the issue, AND i would be protected for some amount of time. I believe it is 30 days, 90 days, 6 months a year or even 3 years.

What they didnt know/ask/think about was that the router and network card were both brand new, and that the computer I was having issues with had a fresh install of win XP with paid antivirus program. When I told them "No, if I have a virus then my antivirus company needs to deal with it, im not paying both of you to solve the same issue". Well, the tech agent hung u... Read more

I need to speak to a support tech in the US.  I was told I had this option when I bought my computer.  I am still in warranty, have a 3 year HP Care Pack.  I spent most of a night from 8:30 PM to 2:30AM on the phone with some guy that had me actually attempting to take off the side panel on my computer and move some plugs.  These people were rude, obnoxious and didn't help at all.  Now they want to come out and change my hard drive??????  They wanted me to do it at first but I told them no.  I run my home and business on this computer and i can't afford to be down for 3 days and lose all of the software I've paid for.  I don't have another computer to put the software on.  I need a United States technition.  I had them when I bought the computer directly from HP and used them, they were great and a real pleasure to work with.  They knew what they were talking about!!  Is there any way to get to one of these guys or girls again.  I had this all written down and cannot find the sheet anymore.

I had a company called Advanced Tech Support remotely tune up my computer. But they could not do it until I had Verizon come out and see why my download speed was only 0.43. Verizon found the problem and got my download speed up.After that ATS took my computer over for about 3 hours. Now all my downloads are fast and buffering problems are gone.
I think probably though. Just upping the speed would have fixed the problem. But I had already payed them So I let them do the work..
Here's my question. I watched them remove my "Revo uninstaller", my "Should I remove it" and my "Spybot" When I asked the representative why she said because they all have a bad reputation for Malware. Has anybody here heard this about these 3 programs.? I sure haven't. Unless you guys here at TS warn me not to I'm going to put them back. Especially since I like the way Revo gets rid of the extra crap. and Spybot has found things that MBAM and SAS didn't Thanks

Answer:Advanced Tech Support

Personally I've never had any "Malware" problems related to revo that I know of. I think (s)he just didn't like the program. I'm not familiar with "Should I remove it" & I quit using Spybot when they updated the program a few years ago.

Couldn't really figure out what topic to post this to so if it doesn't belong here please feel free to move it to another topic ...

I have had lot's of HP and Dell computers in my lifetime (laptop and desktops). Was thinking about looking into buying a Lenova - guess they bought out IBM's pc business a few year ago. Anyway, thought I would get some input as to their tech support - is it USA based or overseas? How has your experience been with that company on their tech support for you?

These are the specs for my perfect PC (it must be a desktop
Had 2 laptops and hated then both - gave them to my kids and they used them for awhile and gave them back.

Processor & Memory:

Intel® Core? i7-6700 Processor 3.4GHz
22GB DDR4 RAM (<--- important for me)

Operating System:

Microsoft® Windows 10


1TB 7200RPM SATA Hard Drive (<---plenty for my needs)
DVD-RW (Writes to DVD/CD)

Graphics & Video:

2GB NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 730 Graphics (<---would prefer 4GB)


Wireless-AC WLAN + Bluetooth® 4.0 (<-- want these this time around)
10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet

Ports & Slots:

2x USB 3.0
4x USB 2.0
1x HDMI-Out
1x Media Card Reader
2x Headphone Jack
2x Microphone Jack


Answer:How is Lenova's Tech Support been for you?

All I can say is that I've had Lenovo Desktop computers (two) for several years and have never, ever had any issues that would require a call to tech support.

Good day, Can anybody advise or guide me on above captioned matter? I currently use "Zuumedia", who incidentaly are good but their prices keep going up and up. Being a pensioner I have to watch the pennies and 120GBP seems a hell of a lot to what it used to be. I live on the west coast of scotland miles away from anybody who can help me so need some way of online support. Can you advise??
Thanks in advance.


Answer:on line tech support

Consider all the options available. Sites like and especially this one can solve most software problems. Really thorough books are available. I just pulled one containing 1101 pages just on Vista from my shelf. On a per inquiry basis, any tech can "share" your computer. If you're uncomfortable working inside the box, there has to be local or shipping help available. Your current "service" can't physically fix hardware anyway. With all the money you'll save, you'll be able to afford the new and hopefully error free computer when this one bids adieu.
