Norton (Win) - Message: "You Are At Risk"

Depending on what your Norton software detect you can be shown the message "You Are At Risk".

Your Norton protection can display this message when:

  • If the definitions are not up to date

  • If the routine scan has not completed

  • Subscription is expired. In this case, most of the security features will also be disabled

When you see this alert on the product, click Fix Now.

Depending on the security status of your computer, Norton will try to turn on the feature that is disabled, or try to update the definitions, or run a scan. If your subscription is expired, you will be prompted to renew the subscription.

If Norton cannot fix the problem with the feature, or cannot run LiveUpdate or a scan, you may see a different error in the Fix Now window. Depending on the feature that is failed or the exact problem that you see, select one of the following:
