  • Do not purchase PC Cleanup service as Symantec will not know how to deal with it. They transferred me to 4 different telephone numbers with a total hold time of nearly three hours before I concluded it was a scam and my money is gone.

  • the customer service is the worst I have ever had to deal with. I requested online that the ultimate help desk be removed and noticed I had been charged 2 times since even after I asked the online rep. 3 times that I would not be charged anymore and he told me in detail that it was cancelled and there would be no more charges so since I received more charges I called and was waiting for 1hr and 30 min. all to be told I would have to call another number. so I called the number they gave and had to wait another 15 min. all for them to tell me they could refund the 2nd charge but not the first charge. I finally said "fine whatever just give me the 2nd months refund and Ill eat the other charge so I don't have to deal with yall anymore." I even told the rep. I had never even used the ultimate help desk and they still wouldn't give the refund. they say that they have no way to look at the chats that you had with online reps. which I don't believe and if they really cant then that's just ridiculous and especially for a billion dollar business. they obviously could care less about any of their customers. I WILL NOT SUBSCRIBE TO THEM EVER AGAIN AND I SUGGEST THAT OTHERS DONT EITHER.

  • On 2/3/14, I thought I had a virus on my computer and contacted them. They made me pay, UPFRONT, in order to escalate my issue. I paid $89.98 to have my laptop addressed. It turned out to be a hardware issue, whereby the tech assured me they would cancel and immediately refund my charge. He told me he needed to transfer me to the billing dept where I held for over 135 minutes! Without success, I hung up and decided to try at a later date. Nobody will tell you that: a) the number listed on your bank charges is a totally different department that does not handle billing, let alone refunds and customer service issues, b) that once you call, you must be transferred to, at least, 5 different toll free numbers to reach the correct NORTON LIVE Billing and Refund department, aka Customer Relations Dept at 877-788-4877. BEWARE, this is the ONLY number you need to call in order to request a refund if you have a NORTON LIVE subscription that charges you $89.98 upfront, then $19.99 per month - do they display this anywhere? Do they inform anyone of that? Absolutely NOT. I had to find that out over a 5-month span of unsuccessfully sitting on hold for hours on end, being transferred to bogus departments that tell you they escalated your issue but NOBODY ever calls you back.
    1) Call 877-788-4877
    2) Request Customer relations dept
    3) Document the name of the person
    4) Demand a CASE # that NOBODY will offer to provide you unless you ask for it and that is the ONLY way to ensure that your case is documented and actually escalated
    5) Only after 58 minutes of arguing, was I able to obtain one month's worth of refund, with the rest being 'escalated for review' again, whatever that may mean.
    6) Demand a cancellation confirmation number, not to be confused with the case number!!!

    Are you kidding me? And to have the gull to tell me that I did not try hard enough and that, had I tried, I would have reached the correct department? This company, Symantec & Norton Live are a sham and a fraud!!! BEWARE!!! You're better off with the Computer Geeks down the street for your tech support and virus removal!!

  • I have been mislead on numerous occasions by Symantec support on the use of Backup Exec. I have now lost two weeks of backups of my file server because a support "engineer" was unable to properly configure the backups. I had an engineer setup the backups because the previous setup was so flaky that I couldn't get reliable backups for more than a week without some kind of inexplicable error.

    Symantec is the absolute worst company I have dealt with in my over 10 years of IT experience.

    If anyone is considering a Symantec product, I would highly advise you to look elsewhere. Anywhere, under a rock in Russia, at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, asking your neighbour's ten year old child would probably get you a better product and support.

    I will NEVER recommend Symantec to another soul as long as I breathe.

    If it were possible I would provide a rating of -10 for each category, but since I am unable to, 1's will have to suffice.

  • i have spent all day trying to resolve a problem with restoring files back on my computer. all my videos are missing and i get a message that says some files couldn't be restored. since 11:25am i started chatting online with a technician who logged into my computer and started a restore process. he said that should fix problem, if not to call in. it took about an hour for the computer to restore. but videos were still missing. i called back and they did the same thing not taking into account that i had already done that on my own 3 times plus once with tech help. it took another hr to restore. nothing happened no videos. i called again and was told i had to be transfered to a manager because they couldn't do anything. i spent 3 hrs 5 mins on hold and then call got disconnected. i called back and told rep what had happened he then said he had to transfer me to manager because he couldn't do anything either. i waited again 3hrs 6 mins and call got disconnected again. it is now 9pm and my problem was not resolved. a whole day wasted. worst service ever. they do not know what they are doing.

  • I cannot speak to anyone in U.S.A.!!!, through any numbers listed on your sites. I do not want to wait 24 hours to speak to a company who's services I've been using faithfully for a number of years. Would I receive a 24 hour grace period if my yearly dues were late?

  • I purchased Norton in January and tried to install it but it said the Code had already been used, I ask for a refund from Symantec and went out and bought another virus protection from Walmart here in Ontario. I installed it and never had a problem until this morning when a message appeared on my computer telling me I had 15 days to re-new my Norton anti virus. What is going on with this company,I just paid for the protection and I have the receipt from Walmart to prove it. Wake up Norton and check my installation date and my Code which was accepted when I intalled your product . Wayne

  • To keep this unbelieveable example of inferior customer service short, after talking to an India based "customer (dis)service agent" for almost an hour (who wouldn't transfer me to someone in the States) I hung up on him. I then went to the web and found Symantec's Corporate Offices. I have now dialed that number half a dozen times. It is 10:40 AM Friday, February 21st. The Voice mail says for me to call back during "normal" business hours M-F, 8:00-5:00 PM it then automatically hangs up on you. Last time I checked Friday at 10:40 AM is during normal business hours. But since Symantec does not want to talk to it's customers, especially to hear of problems with their off-shore based "helpless desk" they don't answer their Corporate Number.

  • Years ago I purchased Norton Ghost and have been using it to back up my C drive. Recently I lost everything on that drive and had to start over. I had 3 separate backups on separate external usb hard drives. However, Ghost failed to restore any of my over 1 million Outlook email messages. It worked for about 4 hours and didn't even produce a pst file. Each of the 3 backups failed the same way. This suggests a problem with Norton Ghost itself (version 15.0). The issue was with a level 2 case manager at Norton Support (case # 126 821 77). They promised to call me back last week but didn't. So last night at 7:22 pm I called them, using the number that was supposed to be "direct". I was in a phone wait until 9:05, almost 2 hours later. That person took control of my computer through a chat window, and explained that he was lower level support. He said he will transfer the chat directly to level 2 support. I waited almost another 4 hours with nothing from level 2 support. At 1:03 am I had enough and went to bed. In the morning I found that level 2 support had responded in the chat window at 3:57 am. There was also a phone message for me, saying to call them again. I cannot afford to spend this kind of time in their wait quesues, and I really don't believe they can get my emails back even if I did. Norton stinks, and my investment of time and money in the Ghost product was a terrible waste.

  • My Internet security licence was automatically renewed which I cancelled within 9 days and followed up monthly with 4 reminders when I did not received any acknowledgement or refund. Chatted online with Norton Support today and was only offered a 40% refund being part of policy. This is unfair treatment when Norton didn't respond to my cancellation nor did I download or use the renewed licensed product. SO to maximise profit, Norton only need to ignore its customer. Good luck to your company policy. I will reconsider all my other licenses with Norton.

After 30 minutes, I was told that the office I needed to talk with to cancel this service was closed.

    I protested and the agent agreed that he would have the appropriate office call me in the morning after 8 am my time. I hope they follow through.

  • Your website is very hard to navigate. All I wanted to do was renew my security for one more year using a different charge card. I was able to do that on Oct. 6, 2013. Before I found where I was really supposed to go to I did a software upgrade for $43.29. I did not really understand what I was buying, but thought it would be the renewal I sought. It was charged on my charge card, which I had given permission to do, but I still don't know if that upgrade I purchased was really necessary just to continue my subscription. I was charged $43.29 on my Discover Card for software and $75.76 for annual renewal. Please advise if I really needed that $43.29 purchase just to renew. I want to be notified each year before my subscription for the renewal runs out. I do not want to automatically be renewed. I need to decide if I can cancel the software purchase for $43.29 and still have adequate security. If you could just list my previous order when I log on, and give me an option to renew without searching all over the place, I would deeply appreciate it. Betty Bibb

Well she was billed twice on her credit card 29.95 So she called Billing and the person she talked to her name was Kathy must have been having a bad day because she was rude to my wife all because we have two Norton accounts one in my name for the laptops and one in her name for the I pad. We have one I pad are Symantec that we bought for the I pad covered Three devices phones are I pad not laptops are tower computers. So why would we purchase it twice. So to cut it short.

I'm now happy to report that either as a result of what I posted here last night or what I told the last person I spoke with at Symantec did the trick and as of 6:03 PM today (Oct 19, 2012) my NortonLive UHD Monthly Family Plan was closed for me. I am grateful and appreciate whoever made that happen.

    PS. The NortonLive Service itself was a lifesaver and necessary during the time I had it and it kept my 2 old pc computers running. I was happy with their service and only wanted to cancel because I had purchased new computers, transferred all my data from my old computers to my new ones and no longer needed their service.

  • I had a fantastic experience with Norton 360 tech support tonight. I got the phone number from the program on my computer. I got through immediately. The tech was very patient talking me through the process of giving him remote access on a VERY slow laptop. Once connected, they spent over 2 hours checking for and correcting problems and loading a new 360 program we'd already purchased (the current one expired in a week). They were very courteous on the phone and on-line. Staples was going to charge me $150 to get rid of the viruses which they said Norton 360 missed and $90 for a different virus protection program. Norton 360 techs fixed the problems and installed the new 360 program and it was all FREE!

I did have to wait for a 30 minutes until I got someone but finally got someone who was obviously from India but was very polite and helped me quite a bit. They got the computer cleaned up and working. Now, this was just today but I am very happy. The rep was nice and polite and her supervisor that came on at the end was nice. I paid for the entire service but I could not remember if I had or not and Norton told me I had purchased the entire package and had anti-virus protection. If they were scamming me, they could have lied and I might have believed them. So far, I had a good experience.

  • Been using Norton for many years by now, i must say the new version of Norton is the best antivirus services available on the market. It is very compact, light yet powerful. Found many threats on my PC and prevented and deleted many threats and viruses.
    Customer service is pretty good, they are all well trained technically by symantec. Yes, there is an issue with call waiting, they must solve it.

  • OK - I did have problems. Some sort of Trojan Virus did get by Norton, but . . . . . I contacted their support team and between the two of us, the virus was irradiated and its 'damage' repaired. Such is life. By NO MEANS am I upset with Norton that the virus got thru. Virus makers are bastards pure a simple. Norton was there to help (and they helped me very efficiently). The Techs that I worked with are Kasari Peyyati (part time) and Naveen Kumar V. (most of the time) They did a great job and for that I am thankful. KUDOS to Norton !!

  • My subscription was expiring, so I purchased a one-year renewal subscription. I was surprised to see the day after my "old" subscription ended, that my computer was at risk. After trying, unsuccessfully, to "fix" the problem myself, I called customer service and the glitch was resolved in a matter of a few minutes. It appears that my computer was not recognizing my new product key number. After I entered it, it was accepted, and I was in business. Thank you EUGENE for your assistance!

  • I have just had the most wonderful experience with one of your technicians. Unfortunately I forgot to write down his name. Everything he did for my computer worked out so very well and I just want to thank him so very much for all he did.

  • Yesterday I spent over 150 minutes on hold and hung up. This morning I spent over 120 minutes on hold and hung up.

    Checked out this web site and read the torture folks have gone through with Norton software. Took a look at the Positive comments and found the resolution. Dial the 877-294-5265 number and chose option 2. I needed a cancellation of an automatic subscription update, which I was able to obtain after waiting about 5 minutes on hold. Had them search on my credit card number(first 6 numbers, last 4 numbers), for my specific renewal date and amount. Looks like a fraud case, but Norton likes to dispute any charge. At least I'm already using a new credit card from my credit card company(USAA). They went to bat for me and I provided them the 9-digit confirmation number for this cancellation. Hopefully, they will get to the bottom of this matter. I've done what they required.

  • I was a Norton tech support exec and i have just gone thru the comments posed by you guys..
    First thing is that YOU guys lets us know that u r not a tech savy.. on the contrary., you will not leave us to work in the computer as well.You dont even know the name of the opearting system that you have in your computer .. you are dont know how to open the Norton program.. then how the hell do you think that we can help you..

    Secondly.... You will change your Email address atleast two months once.. you will call us to get a refund a billing which is registered under an Email address which is atleat 3 or 4 years old and the funniest thing is you dont remember it also...have we ever told you that we are not going to process a refund... God!!!!!

    Thirdly... you dont nothing about the pop up that you get .. you dumbly click on it and you get a virus which is your mistake and you call shout at the tech for having a virus in the computer which obviously got in only because of the reason that you clicked....

    finally.... You shout at Norton for not hiring Americans as support tech.. for your information .. No American tech is ready to work for ten hours (with halfan hour break ) for a monthly salary for 250$.. and they would not stay calm .. sitting like a dead duck when you shout at them with F's and B's...

    Try to understand that we are trying to help you and we are striving to protect your computer..
