Debris of old program

  Glen 22:03 20 Aug 2003

My Packard Bell computer came with a bundled version of Norton Antivirus 2000.When this malfunctioned I uninstalled it, hoping to re-install it from the "Master Cds" supplied with the computer. I have been unable to re-install it, and am left with two annoying reminders. Firstly the boot-up stops with a DOS page saying "cannot find a device file that may be needed to run windows or a windows application." It is named as "Progra\Norton\NAVAP.VXD" and "press any key to continue". Booting up then continues, but a pop-up appears that must be cancelled "The Norton antivirus auto-protect Driver could not be loaded. Your system is not protected from viruses. Please re-install Norton Anti-Virus."
If I could totally eliminate these, I might try the "AVG Anti-Virus free edition" on the cover disc, as I feel re-installation might start the trouble all over again. Can anyone help?

Scroll down to "To uninstall NAV by using the Rnav.exe removal utility"

Download the utility and run it. It'll clean up after a messy N-AV uninstall.
