After removing Norton System Works 2004, I purchased and installed McAfee Antivirus Version 9.0. After reboot the system now loads, shows the McAfee Splash screen and the installed components, Just after displaying Spam Kill I get a blue screen saying Windows has shutdown and there is a problem with file NAIFILTR.SYS. I suspect a driver sequencing problem but any help or hints of how to fix would be most welcome.

Hi

I am having a similar problem - uninstalled Norton 2005 and tried to install mcafee - i dont get any errors but the task bar disappears and all desktop icons too.

Uninstall mcafee and all is ok again.

I have run the unistall/cleanup tools and I am still stuck!

I am sure there must be something that Norton leaves behind that stops mcafee from running properly, but I havent found it yet.

I've never had Norton, but I get the same error.

For me, the computer reboots by itself during the boot process (old windows screen, black background, scolling bar on bottom). Then I get some error saying could boot, do you want to boot in safe mode.

This has happened to me now on 2 occations. Doesn't happen every boot, but it's about once in 4 boots...
