Norton auto protect keeps switching itself off

I use aol broadband and have norton anti virus 2002 and norton keeps switching off the autoprotect, it doesnt do it all the time but when it does do it i cant get it to enable auto protect. If this is an issue tht cant be solved is it worth getting another av such as mcaffee or zone alarm? I didnt have this problem when i was on dial up using the free sygate firewall.

I have Norton 2004 and this happend to me when my wife set up her internet connetion in her Windows user account.(previously she would log on to my account "because it's easier)
I had to logon as her and then create a new account in Norton in my Windows log on name

this solved my problem
i hope this helps

Got 30 copies of NAV 2004 here and this is happening about once a month to random machines. It just appears that Norton has not started up properly becaus a reboot always cures it.
