Norton antivirus is an overall security suite to protect your device from security threats such as malware, virus, Trojans, spyware and other vulnerabilities. The Norton Internet Security is known by several other names, because of it replaces different security apps with a single program. But as Norton follows high standards for security, it prevents various third-party apps to install on your device. Therefore, we need to disable the Norton security suite in order to install the third-party applications.
Disabling Norton on your device can be done with several methods, but the easiest ones are mentioned below:
Open the notification bar by clicking on the small triangle on your Windows taskbar. Choose the Norton internet security from the list of programs by right-clicking on it.
Select the “Disable Smart Firewall” option to turn-off the firewall protection for a matter of time, choose the duration from the drop-down to temporarily disable the firewall protection and then click Ok.
Now choose “Disable antivirus” to disable the antivirus activity on a temporary basis. Along with the firewall protection, you will be prompted to choose the duration for antivirus as well.
Important Note: In the absence of Norton antivirus, your device will be exposed to security threats so it’s important to take proper security measures before disabling antivirus and firewall protection.
One can control the toolbar in the web browser to stop the activity of the antivirus while browsing the app. In order to stop the Norton, toolbar clicks “view” and select “toolbar” and then disable the Norton toolbar by un-checking it. Note that you are temporarily disabling the toolbar and can enable it back whenever required. This process is applicable to Internet Explorer and Firefox only.
