    This method disables automatic restart if you are unable to view Windows Desktop and/or the notebook continues rebooting automatically (whether by the user or the notebook continues booting without user intervention).



    1. During the rebooting process, repeatedly press the F8 key to enter Windows Advance Options Menu.

    2. Use the up and down arrow keys to select Disable automatic restart on system failure and then press the Enter key.

    3. Use up and down arrow keys to select the operating system to start (if more than one OS is installed).

    4. Press the Enter key.

This problem may happen ifthe Norton Internet Security OEM version (which came free with thecomputer) is not uninstalled properly. Download the Norton Removal Toolfrom this LINKand run it multiple times (2-3 times, you may have to restart thecomputer after each time you run the tool). Then try to install Norton360. Let us know the results.
