What's happened? Norton Systemworks 2003

  pj123 15:35 12 Mar 2005

Running Athlon XP 2000 with Win 98SE.

I have Norton Systemworks 2003 Professional.

Now when I double click the Icon it takes 96 seconds before I get Norton dialogue window. Then when I click on "Begin Checkup" it takes another 92 seconds before I get the "One Button Checkup" Scanning the System window. After that, everything runs normally unless I want to run Speed Disk then it all goes slowly again.

I have tried an Uninstall and Reinstall but made no difference.

have you done a registry clean up and de-frag lately?

  pj123 17:08 12 Mar 2005

stalion, yes I did a registry clean up about a week ago using Regcleaner. As far as a de-frag is concerned I use Norton Speed Disk which used to take about 17 minutes to defrag a 40gb drive now takes about 2hours 47minutes to do the same job.

I gather you are not running to anti-virus programs on your pc.

  pj123 17:16 12 Mar 2005

I am running AVG, Adaware, Spybot and Spywareblaster, plus Sygate Firewall.

Try turning off AVG whilst not on the internet and then try norton, you can not run two anti-virus at the same time on your pc it causes conflicts.You will have to disable auto protect on norton after you boot up everytime if you are going to use AVG if you do not want to uninstall norton

I have Norton System Works pro 2003, and notice that in 'Live UpDate' the 'Utilities' has a large Red Cross by the side of it, which I assume to mean that they are no longer providing updates for that part, although I do get regular updates for the AV. Is it possible that there is anything here which is affecting you. My One Button Check up works fine, but the Speed Disk seems to take for ever, although I put this down to XP.

I have th 2005 version waiting to be installed when I can get to it (and feel brave enough !) and it will be interesting to see if there is any diferences.

Of course, I don't suppose that any of this is any help at all, but - - - -

stalion, I haven't got two anti virus programmes running at the same time. All I have is AVG. The Norton Systemworks 2003 is only running Norton Utilities.

As it works OK once it gets going, I think I will live with it.

Thanks everyone.
