It sounds like it's just a matter of updating your antivirus...
installing an antivirus is the first part.. the second part is updating the antivirus (and keep it that way) to be fully protected and avoid security warnings

right click on the antivirus icon on the system tray and look for an "update"option.. or just open it by double clicking on the icon and look for "liveupdate" or something similar.

Your system is infected by malware which is not detected by Norton antivirus. You can download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware software from below link:-

I'm trying to instal Norton Ghost 14. Installation goes fine until reboot. I get error E1AD3212 oon Ghost startup ande can't start the Ghost service manually -- Is there a fix for this -- Windows XP SP3...


Which antivirus previously installed? If any antivirus present then remove it in safe mode.
And better to install Norton in Safe mode
Go to Safe Mode with Networking by Tapping F8 key during Bootup, a black screen with option, select the option and then login as Admin account..

If it fails, then try using the Security Configuration Tool to make sure you have privileges to Ghost. You'll find the Tool in your programs menu under Programs|Norton Ghost|Security Configuration Tool.
After then, install Norton.. Let me know the status for further assistance.
Best of Luck

I've already purchased Norton antivirus 2008 with antispyware and loaded but my screen still blue and shows Warning spyware detected in computer & to install antivirus or spyware wich i did.


That blue screen sounds like a trick to me. Many viruses and spywares or the websites that distribute them make beleive that they are causing viruses then provide links to fake antivirus and spyware removal programs that actually make your system worst.

Use the Norton to purchased to do a full deep scan of your system. I also like to supplement my Norton by running the free scan at housecall.trendmicro.com when I suspect there might be a problem on my machine that Norton can't fix.

Norton on 2 pc's?


You can only get help from Norton corporation, Since u did it online that means u do not have a copy of the antivirus, they shoud send to u a copy. Nnote that once u install a program u can not MOVE or COPY it to another machine, u can only use it if its the machines are in a network thus they will share the antivirus.
