    Anybodys help would be greatfully appreciated for the following problem a friend of mine has with Win 7 Home Premium and trying to install Norton. Following is a description of the problem he is having:

    "the laptop had vista on and experienced the bug where it lost the dvd rom in windows, I installed windows 7 from booting of the disk. Now when trying to install Norton it comes up with a message that no windows greater than xp exists on the laptop, and a few other minor glitches.

    any idea how to fix?"http://tpucdn.com/forums/images/smilies/frown.gif

    Forget about installing Norton, and get MS Security Essentials. You will be better off in the long run.

    Screw Norton, Worst thing on this planet Earth. Get anything else, I would recommend getting Malware Bytes and let that be that.

    I agree - Microsoft security essentials is free and the best AV i've used in quite some time (very small footprint, uses very few resources).
