This is very strange. I have Norton SystemWorks 2002 on the computer, everything runs fine, no problems at all. I ran Windows Update and saw there were 6 critical updates that i needed so i downloaded and installed them, this wasn't a problem either. The problem's started when i installed the critical updates and re booted. Norton Anti Virus 2002 now takes forever and a day to enable itself when i boot up the computer ever since i installed the critical updates for xp. is this just happening to me or is it everybody it's happening to. any ideas on who i should contact about this problem, microsoft or symantec

i've tried re installing systemworks but it still does the same thing. it took me a while to figure out it was the critical up dates that was causing the problem. i even formatted the hard drive!!!

hiya, its a norton problem, check symantecs site and you will see there are multiple issues regarding the Norton suite dependant upon order of installation. You will need to download an uninstaller then reinstall in the correct sequence

you're right, it's "a timing conflict with norton antivirus and windows xp" apparently. i'm sat here now wondering why i decided to buy norton in the first place....... i should have bought mcafee :(

thanx for your help

I find On-Track Fix-It suite has a good virus checker easy update and the programme is fast and seems very stable

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
