try clicking 'start/run' type 'msconfig' click ok and then click the 'start up' tab. untick everything listed here click 'apply' then 'ok' and restart. ignore the warning when you restart and tick 'dont show again'

then try re installing norton maybe.

Go to run and type msconfig this will show you what is on startup. If there is an item with a similar name to what is showing on your screen deselect and reboot. If you are not sure post back with what is showing in start up and someone will let you know what is not needed
