I ran Spybot and Adaware this morning after sending you the previous note. Spybot found a security problem to disable antivirus with registry changes which is the same message I received a while back. The Ad-aware find mentioned "search assistant". It is the 8th MRU List Object Recognized.

I hope this is not a new find but the same problem resurfacing. As I mentioned in my first note today, I was able to locate 5 "hits" runing the Regsrch.vbs. You may want to read that note first, but I also thought I should let you know about this find.

Windows Security Center.AntiVirusDisableNotify: Settings (Registry change, nothing done)

Try not to post the Ad-aware log unless I ask for it :tazz:

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to Start->Run and type in regedit and hit OK. Go to File->Export and save the registry somewhere as a backup. While in the Registry Editor, navigate to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Installer\Products\ and delete 7D449D87B79A4004BAA05BDA60389904

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\UserData\S-1-5-18\Products\ and delete 7D449D87B79A4004BAA05BDA60389904


If any of the above registry keys are giving you problems deleting, right click on them and click on Permissions. Then click on the Advanced button. Make sure the first box (Inherit from parent...) is checked. Click OK and OK. Then try deleting the entry again. Once you're done, close the Registry Editor.

Fix that entry in Spybot. Restart and run those scans again. Any problems now?

I was able to successfully delete the files you mentioned. Regarding the Spybot entry, ...\AntivirusDisableNotify, I fixed (or at least I intended to) it earlier but I ran it again and it was there again with a registry change with two other "hits". I fixed all three. Just to check I restarted the computer and ran Spybot again which was clean. I noticed Norton was running before I started Spybot, disabled during the run, and enabled again when finished. I don't remember this happening before. Does Spybot turn off antivirus to run the scan?

I noticed when I restarted the computer after deleting the files you requested, Norton was disabled. While I ran Spybot Norton disabled, I left the room and returned before the scan finished and Norton was enabled again. I'm questioning should this happen? how do I know if the problem is solved now, and does Spybot fix a registry change? I hope I didn't just confuse you. I hope the problem is solved now. Thank you.

No. Something else must have disabled that registry entry but Spybot fixed it now. If Spybot's TeaTimer program is running, it may ask you if you want to accept or deny a change.

If we are fixing items and it's asking you if you want to allow a change (for something I asked you to fix), then ALLOW the change. If it keeps asking this on every reboot, just check the box to remember it.

It shouldn't disable Norton. I want you to restart and see if Norton is on/running now. Now run Spybot scan. Does it disable Norton?

I rebooted the computer and ran Spybot. Norton disabled shortly after starting and then enabled again about 3/4 through the scan. Weird, it didn't used to do that. Spybot has not asked me to allow a change. I have always just fixed the problem.

When I ran RegSrch.vbs Norton saw this as a malicious script. I tried to allow it one time and it would not allow me to run the program. I ran it in safe mode expecting that Norton was not running, but at this point Norton again saw this program as a malicious script. Norton did allow me to do what I needed this time. I selected allow all changes or something like that, the bottom choice. I don't know if this means anything or not.

After I ran regedit and deleted the two lines you requested, I ran Spybot and rebooted again as you requested. When I attempted to log onto AOL Norton disabled and I enabled it to go on-line. Could my Norton be corrupt? Except for disabling I think it is working. I'm not sure it automatically updates, but I may not be on line long enough. Well let me rephrase, I'm not always getting a pop-up message shows that it has updated, but I am periodically manually updating to make sure I'm current.

Thank you for your help!

OK, I'm going to try converting another user to AVG (you :tazz:). I don't like Norton at all. It's a main cause for many pc problems when it's not spyware or virus related anymore. So I'm thinking Norton is the culprit here.

Boot into Safe Mode. Make sure Norton is not running at all. Check the system tray (near the time) to make sure it's closed. Then go to your Add/Remove panel and uninstall everything that's related to Norton. Install Grisoft AVG (antivirus) and ZoneAlarm (firewall). Both are free for personal use and I have found it much more reliable and less resource hogging than Norton.

Restart and see if Spybot disables AVG at startup.

I suspect I am not really having trouble with Norton. Let me explain to you why I thought Norton was disabling. First, the Spybot finding of: Windows Security Center.AntiVirusDisableNotify: Settings (Registry change, fixed)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center\AntiVirusDisableNotify!=dword:0.

Secondly, I noticed the Norton icon in the lower right corner Taskbar (system tray) had a red x in the icon. I assumed this to mean Norton was disabled. At this time when I opened Norton the Auto-Protect was On. I was confused and and at some point thought my Norton was disabling itself. Norton Status at no time has shown Auto-protect to be off.

Over the weekened while purchasing a new scanner because my scanner was not XP compatible we were discussing XP as a good system. It came up that my Norton icon in my Taskbar (system tray) would get a red x through it. He told me that this did not mean that my Norton was disabled but that at that point in time Microsoft did not recognize that my antivirus was running. When it detected it again the red x would disappear. I’m thinking this is where Microsoft communicates with me such as when there are windows updates, the shield appears to notify me updates are available.

If I go into Taskbar > Properties > Customize I can choose when I want these icons to show. Norton is set to Always Show. Below this section are “Past Items.” In this section are two icons for Norton, the regular and one with the red x. Next to each icon is the description Java ™ 2 Platform and both are set to “hide when inactive.”

I have four questions: Is the gentleman in the store correct in that Microsoft is communicating not identifying antivirus running at that time, 2) should these "Past Items" icons be showing Java ™ 2 Platform, (I have heard of Java but do not know what it is), 3) is it as simple as changing it to “always hide”, and 4) can and should these icons be deleted? Norton is correctly listed under "Current Names."

I should add I have not seen the Norton red x icon in two days. Coincidentally just previous to this I ran CleanUp.

Am I correct in that maybe I don't really have an problem with Norton.

Thank you for your help.

1. He could be correct about that. I personally don't have SP2 installed because of some hardware issues (so no Security Center). But I think that the Security Center might be able to cause problems like that since it should detect a antivirus and firewall program if you have one. So is it detected again sometimes?

2. I wouldn't worry about those Past Items entries. Those are just used to tell Windows whether they should show them in your system tray (you see those icons there near the time?). If it's set to Never, then they will never show up in the tray unless you click that arrow button on the tray (you'll see it when some icons become inactive). Java is a program that most computers should have now. It's used to run some programs properly (more specifically, Java related programs - this could be online or offline).

3. Is the Java icon (it's a picture of a coffee mug/cup) showing up in your system tray (near time/clock)? If not, it's either disabled from startup or uninstalled already. You may set it to Always Hide if you wish, but if it doesn't exist anymore (meaning it's disabled or uninstalled) then there's no difference. You can set any program you want to any of those options (like Always Hide, Always Show, etc.). Try it out yourself. Set Norton to Always Hide and you will immediately see that Norton's icon will be gone. Click on the arrow in the system tray and then you will see it listed there :tazz:

4. Deleted? Not sure if you can delete them (at least not from there). It's usually programs that were running in the system tray before. They don't cause any problems, so I say don't worry about them being there :)

Oh, so no more problems? :) Yay. Yes, it should be all clear in that case. If you want, give it a day or so and post back on the status.

To help prevent future spyware installations/infections, please read the Anti-Spyware Tutorial and use the tools provided.

Are there any problems now? If not, you should be set to go.
