    If you are running Norton Systems Works 2003 or NAV 2003 you need to turn off Instant Messenger scanning for MSNM.

    This feature scans incoming IMs for viruses. Turning this feature off will allow you to close the program at will.

    and of course, to disable this feature:

    Run NAV or SystemWorks.
    Options
    Norton AntiVirus
    Instant Messenger (side bar)
    Uncheck which messengers

    Enjoy.

    just an FYI, in the future if you want to show error messages use alt+prntscreen to caputre just the active window, or at least crop the picture to error message

    Thanks
