You may have let your updates get turned off and viruses have got in on you.
Norton hasn't been doing that great these days. You have to stay on top of your settings all the time to make sure there set to the highest level and your updates need to be checked regularly also.
You might try booting up in safemode and trying to reinstall from hard drive or repair it and see if this helps. If it lets you repair it go ahead and run a virus scan while in safemode. Although the last Norton I tried to run in safemode wouldn't work. You might try to repair it before you try safemode.
Go to the control panel and add & remove programs and click uninstall norton. It should give you the option to repair it. If it does run repair and see if it helps. If it does run updates immediately and then run a full system scan. Go into the settings and make sure you are set to the highest level of protection in Norton options and settings. I always set mine to repair and then delete if repair failed.
good luck.

Norton not working properly


Uninstall Norton's, and if you have the installation disk Reinstall it. Personally Norton's is a pain in the A.., there are alot of other quirks with Nortons that you will find out about. Try changing your Anti-Virus and watch your problems disappear. Good Luck.

Symantec trusted application list will not install


Norton Antivirus 2005 has lots of errors and problems specially with its updates and also its virus scan is not reliable. Norton 2005 can also corrupt your windows while updating itself its better you uninstall it completely and go for Norton 2007 or my favourite Mcafee Total Protection 2007 which has no problems with updates and has anti spyware, registry repair and lots of things. You can also go for AVG Anti Virus which is quickest of all
