Hi All, for no good reason this message has started to appear everytime I start the desktop and also when I try to run any of the Office programs. But ultimately they seem to start ok

ALso appears when I try to run Norton Ghost - but it doesn't run.

Even more interesting Norton Security centre icon has diappeared from the sys tray and the "anti-phishing/Fraud Protection" notice on the top of the IE7 web browser has disappeared. Norton is still there, but when I click it, nothing runs.

I'm a bit terrified I'm going to lose all my data. The MS web site isn't too helpful All was ok until a couple of days ago. Any thoughts, PLEASE...

System Restore?

Hi Rawprawn,

Thanks for the suggestion. Am I right in thinking the data will still be ok?

Could a Norton upgrade have caused something to become corrupted?
