I initially purchased my computer with Norton Antivirus 2003 already on it. (I use this computer mainly for searching the internet). Recently, I noticed that my comp. was very slow and my screen saver was freezing, I had to use alt ctrl del. a lot to get out of frozen programs. This is when I decided to download SpyBot and deleted approx. 20 files from there. I went to open Norton to check if there were any problems, and under e-mail it said "error, urgent attention needed" and the auto protect button was also disabled (which I did not do). The window for Norton will not stay open for more than 10 seconds, and I cannot run Norton any other way, it keeps on closing the program. Now maybe I jumped the gun on this one, but I cleaned up my comp. as much as possible and ran all the free scans that I could. Then I uninstalled Norton, went to the store and picked up the brand new Norton System Works 2004 with the Firewall. After installation, I tried to open the program and I get the same problem, the program will not run for more than 10 seconds. I tried to call Symantec with this and they want to charge me $4.99 a minute or something ridiculous like that. I know that it is probably a virus or something, please let me know if you know of any virus that disables Norton and if or how I can fix it.
