Yesterday, I received a pop-up screen when I logged on to my HP Pavilion desktop computer on a Norton screen to say their last "Live Update" had caused a problem They recommended to uninstall, then reinstall the product. Has anyone else received this notification?

Be cautious and examine the message source very carefully. Although not the same messages, I get emails claiming to be fron Norton, asking me to do things like verify my email address. Do not click any links in the message. If you need to reinstall, find your own way to the Norton site, and log-in there if you have problems.

Needless to say, I totally ignored what the pop-up said and did not uninstall. Everything is running as it should on the HP Pavilion desktop computer that I use.

If you are running Windows 10, I wouldn't bother with anti-virus. The built-in "Microsoft Defender" is plenty sufficient for home users.
