    OK heres the story

    Norton is a reseource hog, and will slow your pc down. If you can stick with this until your licence runs out you should uninstall norton and the reinstall it, using there unisntall program.

    If you want a new virus scanner get AVG (free for personal use ) as it is a much better scanner and doenst cause so many problems on your system.

    Please tell the windows version everytime you ask a question, and also the version of the software you are using.

    Anyway in this case, if you happen to possess a cd for the norton antivirus, then go to control panel > add remove programs

    Look for the norton antivirus, live update(symantec), livereg(symantec), Remove all the three programs.

    Then restart your computer once.

    Then install the norton antivirus setup parogram.

    Run Liveupdate after the installation is complete, while connected to internet. This will keep the program in good shape.

    I had this very same problem and found that spy ware and trojens had corupted the files.

    THIS is how i fixed it; go to

    http://www.windowsecurity.com/trojanscan/trojansca...

    and follow the instuctions. You do not need to use any of the links on the left or right. At the top click on install active x, move down the page and you will see a big box with nubers scolling at the bottom. waite for that to finish and then select the type of scan you want. I sugest a deep scan or thorough. Let it scan and follow the instuctions at the end. If there is someting their it will find it.

    after your computer is clean. Uninstall Norton and get another anti-virus.

    Avast anti virus is good and free at

    www.avast.com

    free home adittion.

    OR at

    www.download.com

    there is loads of free stuf to download.

    It means that your anti-virus program's completely corrupted by a spyware/malware program and you'll have to re-install it and try again.

    My Spybot S&D was done in recently and I had to re-install it by getting a more updated version which was much better than its older cousin.
