Aha! son of a gun...It's Norton acting up!! :blink:

Norton is your problem. Uninstall by going to Start --> Control Panel -->Add/Remove Programs

If you have any trouble removing Norton, use this Norton Removal Tool.

Yes...there is actually a tool to remove Norton. That's how bad it has become. :whistling:

Now, after it has been removed, go back into Start --> Run type msconfig and press enter. Go back to the Startup tab and enable EVERYTHING (check them all)

Now restart your computer and see how it is. Even if it is fine, we still have to get you an anti-virus again.

Let me know how it goes.

Yep, that's normal for Norton. It likes to take its sweet 'ole time uninstalling. Such a pain in the butt :whistling:

There are some people that get along with Norton just fine. For others...Norton is their worst nightmare. It's really strange. Personally, I'd never recommend it to anyone ever again, even if it would work for that person.

Excellent :blink:

Now we need to get you a good anti-virus. May I recommend Avast to you? It's free, and has much better (and less annoying) protection than Norton. :woot:

Or if you'd rather pay for something, you can get the best of the best: Kaspersky :)

I heard that NOD32 is better than Kaspersky, but I've never tested it out yet, so I cannot say anything about it. :whistling:

If you need anything else, just let me know :help:
