Computer woes...
Norton which I uninstalled (or so I thought) some time ago managed to rewrite itself and corrupt a number of programs on my system. I had to (eventually) do a XP repair from disk to get the system up again.
Removed Norton (again) and I am now having problems with auto updates which wont install (or manually) and iternet connection slower than a slow, slow thing if at all.
Also cant install IE7.
I am sure I had to get a patch to fix this issue the last time I tried to uninstall norton but cannot remember what it was, does anyone have any thoughts about whats gone awry and how I can fix it?

asked in computers, drive, me

I would suggest that you backup the files you think are essntial but not programmes or settings and wipe the whole lot and reinstall from cd / dvd. Then enable automatic updates before you do anything else. You can still manually update immediately. Then install a good free antivirus like avira. You should obtain IE7 from Microsoft rather than from a third party.

If you have The WindowsXP disk and key. Then the above is the sure fired option H.

Semantic will seel you software which they "guarantee" will remove the "virus" I mean NAV but I'm sure you'll see beyond the comment!!

This might be a free alternative and at least worth a read.

make sure you have service pack 2 installed, if not the rest will not update. You can find out if you have it in "control panel"- (classic setting) - "add or remove programs" and select " show updates" then it will show there if you have it. If you don't have it down load it on its own manually.
