    If you don't mind redownloading the updates, try uninstalling, killing NAV's folder in Program Files, then reinstall.

    I would first try Symantec's support. They have a huge Knowledge Base.

    No it does not.

    Its mainly set to disabled for performace gains for NTFS formatted drives, one less thing to write for each file. It causes more problems than its worth however.

    Have you resolved your issue? :)

    With 8.3 on or off the performace will remain the same, you wont notice any differance. So many software packages still require 8.3 its untrue and you will run into hassle with it disabled eventually, leave it enabled.

    The two bigs on NTFS are last access update and the correct space reserved for the MFT, thats all you need worry about :)
