How do I switch from Norton to McAfee?
Question: I just got my new windows 7 computer it came with a free 60 day trial on Norton security so I did that... then it ran out so I uninstalled the Norton software completely then I went to download McAfee (because that's what I had payed for previously for my old computer) so I download it and it wont run properly it says always says at the end of downloading (I have tried to uninstall and re install multiple times) download complete then say we couldnt download all security please try again or something similar... I need protection on my computer please help!!! By the way I have already shut off the Windows Firewall if that was going to be your answer

By uninstalling Norton, did you use the Norton removal tool, or did you use the add/remove programs ? You must use Norton Removal Tool to completely uninstall norton. ~

Not sure how you removed Norton or McAfee, but I'd start over and use the removal tool for Norton--Google "Norton Removal tool" And run it. Then Googe McAfee Consumer Product removal tool MCPR. And run that tool. Then try to reinstall McAfee. If you still have issues install a free Anti Virus program to hold you over till you get sorted out. Google Avast free. Only run 1 Ant Virus program at a time.
This is called an event sequencer. This can be done using a cascade of on timers and off timers with the appropriate settings. These trigger each other in sequence, until the last event, which triggers the first to repeat the sequence. It is a ring of timers. The timer outputs are combined for the desired sequence. The output is probably a relay that switches your unit on and off. This tends to be expensive in hardware, and may use more power than you wish. You will see mention of 555 timers in this type of device, but they can only provide times like a few seconds maximum. This can be extended using counters, but you did say you were non-technical. The usual way to do this is with a micro-controller, which can be programmed to provide the sequence (a computer program). The advantage is that the sequence can be changed by changing the program, probably without changes to the hardware at all. It could be changed with user settings in a more sophisticated version. It seems likely the output would be a driver transistor to operate a relay that switches your device on and off. In a one off situation this approach is likely to cost $50 or so for parts. You could try a basic stamp or an arduino-uno or similar small controller. Probably it needs a relay driver and a relay to control your device. The first step would be to get it to flash a lamp regularly, there are example programs on the internet for this. Then evolve to what you want, learning as you go. It could take a few days or a few weeks. There are plenty of instructions about timers and using interrupts with micro-controllers on the internet but - hmmm.
Why on earth would you use Norton OR McAfee? Both of those programs are terrible for comptuer security... For anti-virus I strongly recommend AVG or Avira, and for Anti-spyware, use Spybot Search & Destroy. All of these have free and paid versions. Check em out. http://www.avg.com (AVG) http://www.avira.com/ (Avira) http://www.safer-networking.org/ (Spybot) By the way, you'll want to uninstall Norton from your computer and then run the Norton removal tool to completely get rid of Norton all the way. Here is the link for that. http://service1.symantec.com/Support/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039 Once there, click on the type of Norton product you have, download, and run the tool
I have used AVG Anti Virus, Zone Alarm Firewall, Spy-bot Search and Destroy a spyware killer for years. I have recently added superantispyware. They are all free for personal use and I have had no trouble with Viruses Trojans Hackers etc. I have just upgraded to AVG free 8.0 and all seems good so far. Zone Alarm allows a lot of personal configuration unlike the Windows Firewall. They can all be downloaded from http://www.download.com/ I also use Windows Defender from the Microsoft site. It is safe to use two anti-spy products but never use more than one A/V as it can cause conflicts. You should run A/V and anti spy weekly. Hope this helps
