The system restore eventually stated to function? so loaded system as of a week ago, had to remove Norton Internet Security a number of times and eventually got the virus scan to work, found ADWARE.OVERPRO, once removed all appears OK.
However, cannot get Norton (2004) to load down all of the definitions keep getting a LU1812 and a LU1806 error, been to Norton's site but their info does not help.

Thanks for your input BBez
