I successfully removed Norton Internet Security utilizing steps mentioned here at GTG. But then, my system was very slow to shut down. I noticed, upon trying to go to Windows Updates to see if I had any updates to download that my system was erroring on updates and was not downloading them. I wrote Microsoft.

So the Microsoft folks gave me some regsvr things to re-register using the run program. For some reason, this fixed the super slow shut down HOWEVER I still cannot download updates.

So then the Microsoft folks kept giving me steps to do but they could not be completed. One of them was to delete a folder in my hardrive and now Windows Updates cannot remember any updates I did download previously. they also started recommending theElderGeek.com for some download...anyhow, I am at a loss as what to do. I don't trust the Microsoft guy who wrote me as the steps weren't working and he recommended a download that wasn't even for my system. :tazz:

Do you have ANY ideas what could be wrong? My system is XP SP2. I need to get my system stable before I reinstall Norton INternet Security.
