Bit of a last resort, but try Start; Search and do searches for Norton and Symantec.

Delete all that you find and then run CCleaner again

hello again not more erros on the norton bit after 24 hour so hopefully thats ok . now on the crashing side of it after a little investigation on the home front i.e my son it now seems that the crashing only started occuring after the installation of day of defeat source (game)i have been told its a very demanding game on graphics cards so i would have thought my geforce fx5500 256mb card would be ok strang that it also crashes on call of duty 2 too, a freind at work said he had a simular problem he change his drivers after phoning a support numbers which they recomended i have the latest nvidia drivers installed 84.21 but there is a beta versin avalible are beta version farly stable .
