Can't open folders or programs on the start page or desk top

I uninstalled norton internet security to reinstall 2009 when a message came up it had a error occur. Thats when all the folders on the desktop turned to a blue folder, except internet explorer, recycle bin, my documents, which I can open. I'm at a loss as to what to do. Any help would be much appreciated.

Try uninstall norton antivirus and load avira antivirus, run word program and check whether an error will come out. If no error, your antivirus might be corrupted and somehow affects your application. If error still occurs after replacing norton, uninstall office program and reinstall again.

Norton Internet Security 2009 Causes Blue Screen of Death.


Hi there
Thats Norton for you! this is a very heavy and memory hungry program, it takes control of your computer and if you have not got enough system or virtual memory it will cause the pc all kinds of problems. To fix this either upgrade the system memory or don't use Norton, use AVG free instead, its a lighter program and lets you have some speed back over the internet.

good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Norton has a habit of being so good that it interferes with some normal activities. Should you wish to uninstall a Norton product and if at all possible, download and run the Norton Removal Tool. Soon as the Norton Product is un-installed, remove the remaining Symantec folders in Common Shared folders. Thereafter, pls follow below procedures:
  1. On the Windows taskbar, click Start > Programs > Accessories > Windows Explorer.
  2. Delete the program installation folders for all Symantec program that were installed.
  3. If you accepted the defaults, the installation folders will be in C:Program Files and will have the name of the program that you installed.
Below listed are the default program folder names and locations listed by program:
  • C:Program FilesNorton Internet Security
  • C:Program FilesNorton SystemWorks
It would help to configure Windows to show all files.
  • Click on "Windows Key" and select Control Panel
  • Double click on Folder options.
  • Click on View Tab
  • Un-check "Hide file extensions for known file types."
  • Under the "Hidden files" folder, click "Show hidden files and folders."
  • Click on Apply
  • Click on OK.
Having performed the above, search for and delete all Symantec folders.
  1. Click on "Windows Key" and select Computer.
  2. Double click on C Drive
  3. Go to the following locations and delete the following folders.
  • c:Program FilesNorton Internet Security
  • c:Program FilesCommon FilesSymantec Shared
  • C:ProgramDataSymantec
and delete all the 3 folders.

Finish by cleaning up the Registry:

CAUTION: you must back up the registry before you make any changes to it. Incorrect changes to the registry can result in permanent data loss or corrupted files. Modify only the keys that are specified.
  • Click Start and then Run.
  • Type REGEDIT into the Run dialog box when it comes up and then click OK.
  • The Registry Editor will open.
  • Navigate to and select the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARESymantec

  • Press the Delete key on your keyboard and click Yes to confirm.
  • Navigate to and select the following key:

I wish to install Windows Vista Home Premium. I already have Windows XP. I pay for Norton Internet Security by direct debit through Tiscali and have done so since, 2006. I have run Norton Liveupdate. ...


You will need to cancel your Norton subscription and use one of their products that is suitable for Vista. May I suggest that you purchase Norton Internet security 2009 for a single payment of about 70 dollars.
