i have just installed norton antivirus and firewall, but now my recycle bin says i have norton protected files in it, but i cannot see them? what are these norton files and if i delete them is it bad for norton?

If you mean that the recycle bin icon on the desktop now reads Norton protected recycle bin,then you have Nortons attempt to prevent data loss by accidentally deleting necessary files.Right click on the icon and you should be given the option of checking just what files are protected(this gickly builds up to many thousands).You should also find the option to delete them.

Its up to you to decide if you are the type of person who regularly deletes things you meant to keep :o)))
