I am Using Windows Vista. I was having no trouble with the OS. I have installed Norton and i was not able to do anything.
I am not able to open any the .msc applications (services.msc, devmgmt.msc, eventvwr.msc, System Properties, defrag.msc, diskmgmt.msc, User Accounts + Lost Permissions) getting the error message "cannot find file mmc.exe"

I have installed msxml 6.0 and nothing happens.

I will be able to open these application by opening MMC Console in System 32 folder and by creating the snapins, but I tried to save the console and got the error message "Cannot Save Console"

I am not even able to activate the Norton Product and the Norton Activation window is greyed out.

Please help me?

you should be able to add mmc.exe to nortons exceptions list somewhere within its settings. sorry, not exactly sure because I don't have norton installed. it depends on what norton you have but you definatly should be able to add programs to an exception list to allow them to run.

good luck
