Why does Norton dislike Arrse?

Discussion in 'ARRSE: Site Issues' started by IT_Rogue, Mar 5, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Tonight my Norton Protection Centre blocked the Forums page at
    stating it is a known phishing site.

    I can get to the Forums page, but I keep getting a script error, presumably Norton is blocking it from running.

    Has the page been infected :?:

    No, your computer has been infected. By Norton.

    Get rid.
  3. Im so glad i got shut of Norton,wouldnt touch it with a barge pole. Get AVG or something similar
  4. Norton is S*** get AVG

    AOL is another legal virus..it takes over your f***ing machine!!

    Microsoft latest media files are very naughty too

    The question is more: Why does the combined wisdom of arrse dislike Norton?

  6. Again I seem to be in the minority, I get mine as the package with BT, as yet NO problems.

    Perhaps if you go into the detail of what you allow as trusted?

    No problems, just a massive slowdown in your computer's speed as Norton hoovers up your PC's resources and fails to detect viruses and malware.
