Question about Symantec Norton AntiVirus 2002 8.0 for PC

1 Answer

Yesterday I shutdown my computer and came back to start it up again today and it is much much slower and responding very slowly. I was looking around to see what was going on and I realized that Norton was disabled but i cant find a way to get it back running its virus protections. (By the way, the computer asked me if I wanted to run Vista in safe mode and i did numerous disk checks...) Please help i really dont know what to do.

Sky drive

Have you went to your account and tried to turned off sync? That way you could choose what to upload and when. I don't know what the setting s are for sky drive, I use a different backup service, but you should go to your account dashboard and look for syncing choices. If that fails, maybe contact MS and ask them?

I agree, nothing fixes it, going back to ie might be slower but doesn't hand every 2 minutes

Chrome.exe - corrupt disk the file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unuseable. Please run the Chkdsk utility on the volume C:.

While installing Google Chrome, the installation program detected problems with the file system and wants you to run chkdsk to repair them. Either go to a cmd prompt (or click on Start, Run) and key-in chkdsk /f The /f instructs chkdsk to fix any file system errors it finds as it checks your hard drive, You will receive a message the the disk is currently locked and asking you if you want to run chkdsk the next time the system starts, Respond with Y. Then restart your computer. You will receive a message that a disk check has been scheduled - allow it to proceed. Chkdsk will execute and repair any problems it finds with the file system. After completion, your computer will start up normally. Now you should be able to install Chrome.

Unplug and plug your internet access back in, then try again, reboot your computer. If it still doesn't work, it's probably the web site. You may also be using the web site during peak hours. Try again a little later

System shutdown message pop up and shut down and restart computer

Sounds like spyware / malware i would use an online scanner like Eset or a program like Malwarebytes.

also to stop the computer from restarting open the command prompt window (start menu, click run, type cmd, click ok...) type "shutdown.exe /a" without the "" and there is a space between exe and /a this will abort the shutdown.

Each time I try to get onto the internet, I get the message ''Internet Explorer has encountered a problem, and needs to close.'' Has anyone else had this happen, or is it just my computer? This started...

IE8 can sometimes act this way. _Uninstal it through the add/remove programs from the control panel.
Reinstal it only if you want to. I don't use it.

Cannot uninstall Norton - get 'ERROR 9999.174' message.

Try to start your windows on safe mode.
To do it restart your computer and press F8 button before windows logon appear then you will start windows on safe mode.
After you start windows on safe mode go to control panel again and try to remove it.

Slow when typing e-mails.

what brower are you using ? usually it is sometimes caused by script errors causing the browser to respond slowly. try clearing the temporary internet files closing the browser and restarting it again.
This helped one user with the same problem as yours.

another thing you can try is to switch back to classic view as newer view has some glitches they still need to iron out. you can also try setting your browser to its default settings. In IE properties you can go to advanced tab and reset it to its default settings..

if this solves your problem please vote for me. and if doesnt post back so that we can resolve the issue.

thanks for using fixya.
