I am using a Windows 98 computer and have no Norton's nor Symantec items installed. Two days ago "Symantect Symevent Installer" popped up and last night it told me "Symevent has been successfully updated." I never downloaded nor installed anything. What exactly is this? Do I need to get rid of it so it doesn't interfer with McAfee?

Thanks.

it must have had some Norton software installed at some time which hasn't been completely uninstalled. Certainly you should not have two antivirus programs installed together as this can cause problems. in your case only parts of Norton are still there but you should try to eradicate them. look in Control Panel - Add'Remove Programs and uninstall anything referring to Norton or Symantec. you could also use a free utility called 'RegSupreme' which will list any norton or symantec software that's present and you then select it and RegSupreme will remove it.

I checked the control panel Add/Remove programs and didn't see anything. I'll install and run that software. Thanks for your help!
