Configuring Norton Anti-Virus Auto-Protect

  Tijs 18:58 08 Jun 2003

When I first turn on my pc I have to wait 15-20 minutes for the Norton Anti-Virus Auto-Protect logo on the bottom bar to become uncrossed.

Until this happens I can't do anything on my pc, if I try to log-on to the internet a blank screen just appears. The same with reading email.

Then 15-20 minutes down the line the red cross disappears from the auto-protect logo and everything is working as normal.

Is there anyway I can configure or speed up Auto-Protect so I can get use out of my pc as soon as I turn on?

have you tried right clicking symbol at the bottom and turn it on with a left click

Restarted computer, waited 10mins before auto-protect allowed me to log on. Right clicked on Auto-Protect symbol, left clicked on Enable Auto-Protect and nothing happened.

Opened my email but was unable to connect, closed email and a message appeared reading 'Program not responding'.

I then clicked on 'Norton properties' clicked on the Compatibility tab and noticed under 'Compatibility Mode' the setting is on Windows 95.
I am using XP. Is this ok?

The other options are:
WIN 2000

Should I leave the setting Windows95 or try the other settings??
