Norton Anti Virus can't get auto protect to enable

I cannot get auto protect to enable, despite setting it to do so. Even if I enable it in options it fails to stay enabled?

Try running the auto update...Norton seems to have a habit of updates upsetting it and then sorting itself out with another update.Also try the automated support assistant click here (use internet explorer as it needs DirectX) which will scan your product for any issues.

Thats why i uninstalled Norton and got Zonealarm and Avg ,i was always having trouble with Norton and when you dont have the disc its a big problem !

I uninstalled NIS2005 and use AntiVir/Macafee free firewall now.Norton caused problems with a number of things for me with the latest problems when I ran the 2003 and 2004 versions.After having to reinstall it for the fifth time this's gone for good.Nevertheless lots of people have it and like it so I think we should try to help them (as well as lecture them on the merits or not of Norton,lol).

It happened to me once - uninstall / reinstall was the answer. : }

Have you got any creative programs running, if so you should diable them on startup, there is a conflict between creative mediasource go and NAV. Try click here they have a good database.
