I never liked nortons. I use McAfee hardly had any problem with them.

Was this the site you download the FreeSCAN from? Downloads - Sixspot Software

Angry FreeSCAN

I uninstalled Norton still would not install program. It might be FreSCAN won't load into Windows 8. Have to get a CD I guess. Thanks for your help........

I downloaded and installed Freescan onto a Windows 8 machine without a problem. How did you uninstall Norton? Using the add/remove programs (or whatever it's called in Windows 8) doesn't remove all of Norton, Norton's web site gives directions to completely remove Norton.

I know Norton causes a false detection with FreeSCAN. Besides temporarily disabling it, it's also important to give the installer administrative rights for the machine. If not, the install won't work. After the installation is done, FS runs as a regular user.

Cpuerror/rmmurray and others good idea to report the false positive here -
https://submit.symantec.com/false_positive/

The Symantec endpoint protection doesnt have a problem with freescan.

Symantec has the Norton Removal Tool for wiping old installs. It might work for you.

I don't believe the portions NOT removed with uninstall will interfere with Freescan. What was meant by most was to temporarily disable(turnoff) Norton, not uninstall. You should reinstall Norton and follow cpuerror's advice.
