Norton Security is snoozed

Every day on my laptop I get a notification that my antivirus software isn't turned on. I open my security and maintenance and it says my Norton Security is snoozed. What does that mean? Is it working if it is snoozed? Every time I hit the turn on button is does nothing and just keeps saying snoozed.

I think I disabled my Windows Defender and I have Windows 10 now.

Re: Norton Security is snoozed

Here is the "error message" of Norton being snoozed. Then I additional added a pictured of what my Security window says everyday.

I'd be removing / uninstalling IObit Malware Fighter if it was me.

Re: Norton Security is snoozed

I just tried to go to the IObit web site, and I am getting a warning from Norton that there are viruses on their web site. Where did you get the IObit Malware Fighter? Have you tried uninstalling IObit to see if that helps?

Have you run a full system scan with Norton?

Windows Defender would have been disabled when you installed Norton.

If you use Windows 8/8.1 or 10, there can be an issue with the Fast Start feature.. See more information here.

  • Pros

    Attractive user interface.

  • Cons Not tested by independent labs. Incredibly terrible score in our hands-on malware-blocking test. Zero-percent protection in malicious-URL-blocking test.
  • Bottom Line

    Every other antivirus product we've tested is a better choice than IObit Malware Fighter 3 Pro. Don't even think about purchasing this turkey.

Re: Norton Security is snoozed

I did get the IObit Malware Fighter and other tools from the iobit.com. I only have the FREE tools from there (Advanced System Care, Drive Booster, IObit Uninstaller and IObit Malware Fighter), I didn't purchase the PRO tools. 

I did just uninstall it, but I can't get to that exact window of showing how Norton was snoozed to see if uninstalling IObit worked. I don't think I have ran a full system scan with Norton.

Re: Norton Security is snoozed

I suggest you download and run the Norton Remove and Reinstall Tool to clean up your installation.

This will uninstall your current copy of Norton, saving settings, and download and install a fresh new copy.  Remember to run Live Update, restarting where required, until no more updates are available.

Please let us know how you get on.

Have you tried clicking "Yes, I trust the publisher and want to run this app."?

By the way WSCStub.exe is Windows Security Center Stub which is probably supposed to send the status of Norton to Windows Security Center.

Re: Norton Security is snoozed

I did the Norton Remove and Reinstall and it looks like it works! 

Thank you so much everyone!!!

Hello Kand

It looks like your Norton Security was tired and napping. It needed a shower (Norton Remove and Reinstall Tool) and then woke up for a busy, heavy day of protecting your computer and also protecting you by helping to keep you calm if you are the type that gets upset if your computer isn't working correctly.

Thanks.
