A multi-pronged problem.
System: Dell Dimension 8400, 1GB, Memory 160GB Drive, Window XP Professonal SP2
1.) Had intermittent issues with shutting down. Excessively long. Disable Norton Internet Security seems to have corrected the problem.
2.) Copying some files to a flash drive yesterday. Right clicked on properties for selected folders and nothing.
3.) Installing IPOD Nano software last night, Intallshield starts up, iniitializes, whatever and then nothing. It's in the task bar and have to end task.
4.) Checking for updates this morning. Microsoft says they have a new updater, downloads, initializes installation and then hangs. End task again.
5.) Just checked properties on "My Computer". Brief flash of activity and no display.
Norton scanned on Friday, no problems reported.
Somehow I think these are related. Interesting that I am having difficulties installing anything...
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
