Hi Gagan, snowing in the Midwest!!
Ok, so you had the previous version when you updated Norton, but didn't have any problem until around mid month 15-18th or so. Then after the problems, you uninstalled and installed the latest version.
Now during that time, Norton was issuing updates as were all of the Anti-virus/spyware programs. The entire month of December was a very busy time for the bad guys. I use Avast and many days I would have 3-4 updates of definitions
per day. It has slowed to about 2 a day now.
We have all FP files and ActiveX's installed. Java has been revised. We have removed some old programs. The only thing we have not done is disable Norton, but we can't very well do that and test a website. However during that period of time it could have been an update from Norton. I have seen during that time, say the 12th thru the 20th the Norton updates.
But since I am not familiar with the terms they use, I'll just mention a few. It appears they update Norton Anti-virus 2206/2007; Symantec Endpoint Protection 11, Norton Anti-Virus 2008 and newer. Their heading is listed whenever they update as NAV Updates or NAV Weekly etc.
Would these apply to the version that you have?
One other thing that I have found is that the Symantec Intrustion Prevention of Norton, with a file "ipsbho.dll" has showed up as a problem in various help sites, malwarebytes and HJT logs. Is this listed anywhere in your add ons? Some BHO's aren't but do a search from Start and see where this is listed.
Thanks, that is all I have at this time.
yeah I know!! was just out there snow blowing.. I have Norton 360 antivirus version 3 that is all i know about that lol sorryy ... for the add ons however I have the Symantec Intrusion Prevention file ipsbho.dll and it is disabled.
Guess winter is here:-) Ok, glad it's disabled. What haven't we tried? I have a couple of people that use IE8 that I can
contact and get their opinion. Here on the forum I don't recall anyone ever having the same problem that you are having;
especially after all we have tried. Perhaps if I knew more about Vista/IE8.
The Vista forums and IE8 forums may be able to help if you wanted to sign up and pose a question. Let me know if you want the Microsoft toll free number for IE8 problems. The Techs helped one other person from the forum that I gave the number to. He said he was on the phone for 2 hrs but they really helped him. At least you know they would understand IE8/Vista issues.
Let me know.
Hi Gagan, Ok, here is the link:
On the older vs of IE, which would be IE7. I think I would wait until you find out what MS can do. I would hate to see you do that and have the same problem. I know they did not suggest that to the other forum person. He had some of your issues, but not exactly.
Hope they can help, it certainly won't hurt.
Gagan, That is the best news! So happy for you, as I know that is a relief. Now you can hibernate, what with the snow and all and watch videos Such a great feeling when a hugh problem is finally fixed.
Glad you called and didn't do anything crazy on your system too.
Thanks for being helpful in the process!
Have a great year!
Having the same issue. You have version 10,2,159,1 installed. It runs fine. Evertime I reboot my machine - actully 3 different machines- the same thing happens. It asks to install the latest update 10.2. It is like an endless loop. I choose install each time but the next reboot it asks again. Been going on for a month I'd say. VERY ANNOYING!
histreeter / middlekid3008, please start a new thread. You have both responded to post which is over two years old. Flash player has been updated several times since then and issues in the original post no longer apply.
