    Hey,

    Never had this problem before however, i noticed it first on my moms machine. Taking no notice of it, i got a new hd for myself and obviously reinstalled.
    the same problem on my moms machine (also on XP) has occured on mine.

    Basically...
    I installed Nav2002, its fine.
    Do a liveupdate for definitions, and after reboot, thats the end of most of norton.
    It brings up an error msg, and disables email scanning.

    The error msg reads:

    The procedure entry point ?SRStopRedirect@@YAKK@Z could not be located in the dynamic link library symredir.dll.

    Any ideas?

    nope wasnt that
    followed the instructions clearly,
    the system doesnt have files called update.exe update.vbs
    nor does it have the registry key

    thing is if i reinstall nav its fine so it cant be a virus

    what i'll do is ive just reinstalled it, i am now gonna liveupdate but not select the symantec redirector.
