New problem , I disabled teatimer and rebooted, and got a message that antivirus is disabled, I went into my norton systemworks and did a one button checkup and it said the same thing and it had me to click the fix it button which I did. The antivirus says everything is turned on and running , I did a system scan and it was all clear, I rebooted again and I'm still getting message antivirus is disabled , But what I see in norton it isn't, Now whats going on?

tea timer has nothing to do with norton...try system restore ...go back a couple days ..see if that "fixes" the problem
several years back (3 or 4)I bought and installed system works on my computer...fought with it for about 6 months before giving up.. having had to screw with it on a frequent basis...sometimes weekly...uninstalled it and never looked back...
you can use the windows security center to click a box telling the advisor that you will monitor your anti virus yourself..that will get rid of the windows pop up warning..does not do so for norton though...you will have to fight with it yourself...contact nortons support for help...maybe they got better since I dealt with them.. :whistling:

Yes system restore fixed antivirus messages, I reluctenly tried it, never had much luck with restore before, I was beginning to think something got removed when I ran spybot, But after doing some research on it , Seems Symantec says it's a trojan ( Admincash.B ) that caused the messages. I'm All out of idea's with the D and e drives, Think I'm going to borrow different burner to see if it will work .
