You should run the Norton Removal tool.Its the only way to get Norton removed properly from your computer.Then run C Cleaner to get rid of it completely.Then you will have to get a Firewall.Might be a conflict between Norton and AVG.Have you tried,Control Panel, Internet Options.Programs.Internet Explorer is the default web browser, Make sure it is pressed.

jimv7 i tryed that and it worked but when i restarted it didnt work it went back to normal . but i will run it again thanks :)

buteman i thaught when i removed norton everything was removed but i ran CCleaner and they were lots or registry items still in there from norton and the anispam folder still in my outlook express but i will soon find away to get away and i will try the thing you said because and if that dosent work i will try installing mozilla firefox but i will do that the next time i need to go on xp because i am on Windows Vista. thanks and i didnt know how much norton slowed down my laptop and its a P4HT 3.40GHZ but its a lot faster and renders videos now that i have AVG :)

thanks everyone.
