When I right click on a folder on my desktop, or on the if I right click on the start menu it starts to launch and install for Symantic. If I copy a file or another item, and go to paste it in a folder by right clicking and hitting paste, as soon as a I right click it launches and install for Roxio.

I dont know why this started or how to get it to stop. Just prior to this I installed windows updates, perhaps it has something to do with that?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Kheelan.

I've had this very same problem.

To solve: Download and install Windows Install Cleanup, find Symantec Antivirus select remove, reboot and enjoy :)
