    Try uninstalling Norton from the Administrator account in safe mode

    You have 2 accounts

    Everyone has the account they created and the administrator account. you need to enable the admin acount on the welcome screen. Do do this:
    Get TweakUI for XP under logon check show admin account on welcome screen - also go into user accounts and assign a password to your admin account - I assume you didn't orginally since you say you don't even have this account.
    While you are in user account click "Change the way users log on and off" click show welcome screen.
    Now you can enter as the administrator. Yes I no you only have 1 account but you really have 2 admin and your acct.:D

    Or you can avoid getting TweakUI Just enable the logon screen (if its disabeld), at the logon screen (at normal mode, no need for safe mode) press ctrl+alt+delete , a text box will appear.

    In the text box write "Administrator" . and uninstal nis.
