Deleted - Tamper Protection came to mind, but that might be considered "canned".

Re: BLOCKING NORTON IP'S

Not sure why you would want to.  Norton does require access to backend servers in the cloud for full protection.  I suppose you could use the Hosts File.  But if you don't trust Norton, don't use it.  Seriously.  Security software has access to everything, don't even mess around with anything you have no confidence in.  I would never give a canned response telling someone to use something they regarded with suspicion.

Here is my non-canned response.

You can't block all Norton IP's anymore because there used to be several cracks that relied on blocking the activation and license servers.  Now such cracks don't work because Norton products will turn off automatically if it's unable to get a valid response within a certain time frame.

A cracked version will give your system just that  -- a cracked layer of false protection.  Broken is broken; why risk it?

Good luck with that!

Don't expect help for any problems you experience with cracked, illegal copies.
