Can't update from McAfee to Norton

Go to solution

I've tried updating BT Virus Protect from McAfee to Norton. Press "Update" and I get a "Server Error" from Norton. I then get an email from BT to say my Norton subscription is activated. How do I download and install Norton? BT technical tells me to contact Norton which seems wrong. It passes the problem back to me!

I've noticed reading the first post on here that today is the first day you can update. Doesn't bode well does it? I did a chat with Norton and the person on the other end really didn't understand the BT connection!

Having the same problem, server error. Glad I'm not the only one, but quick fix needed.

Hi @paularmstrong63 and welcome to our community.

Thanks for posting. The new app went live in the Google Play store around 10am this morning and will gradually get rolled out to customers over time – over the next couple of weeks. In the meantime, if you already have the McAfee version of the BT Virus Protect app installed, it will continue to work as normal. At some point later your device will receive the automatic update, which you will need to update on your device - just as you would update any app. After that, you will have to login with you BTID credentials just once to activate. Please note, we are aware of an issue preventing some customers from logging in at present. We’re actively trying to put that right. We’ll be back to let you know when we’ve resolve it.

Cheers

David

Yes, same problem with me. Spoke to someone on BT Help line. She said they were unaware of the issue (see post by moderator on here!!!). She also told me she could do nothing and it was a Norton problem. I haven't contacted Norton yet. Will wait for this thread to resolve.
