    Here is a dilema with Norton Antivirus 2002 as part of Norton Internet security.

    My sytem is an AMD 900 on a K7A Raid mobo with 256 PC133 Ram.
    Nvida Geforce 4 4400 Ti gfx
    and a Creative Audigy Platium sound card. This is where the problem started.

    I have just installed my sound card.
    When I next looked at my antivirus in the sys tray it had a big red cross over it. When I opened it, it said "Auto protect" is off. So I went to settings, and enabled "Auto protect." How ever, I then got an error message.


    Internet Explorer Script Error

    Line 29
    Char 5
    Error Unspecified error
    Code 0
    URL: res://C:\PROGRA~1\NORTON~1
    \AVOpts.dll/optionsbtm.htm

    Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?



    So I thought, unitstall Internet Security, reinstall and see what happens.
    So I uninstall, and restart pc.
    I install Internet Security (both firewall and antivirus) and restart.
    It works!!!!
    I restart again just to see!
    It works....
    I let the live update kick in, and dl the latest definitions etc...
    Restart for settings to take effect..
    No Auto Protect.
    Error when I try to activte it.


    Help! Any ideas.
    I went to thier web site, but they have solutions for every error bar this one!!


    Cheers :confused:

    try uninstalling Norton Secutity and intalling Norton as a stand allone packeage - do all the up-dates and see what happens - I had lots of problems with norton Internet Security, found that Norton Antivirus and Zone Alarm a much better combo.

    You can try running msconfig (Start->Run->Msconfig)
    go to the startup tap and check if "Navagent" or "Navapp32" is checked if not try checking it.

    Only try this if you know how to use ms-config!!!
    and dont blame me if your computer stops working.

    Just open Internet Options - Advanced Tab and put a check in Disable Script Debugging

    Ok, will try that, but won't that just disable the script debugging, still resulting in the auto protect not working but without a error notification, or will it allow the auto protect to work?
