Look in Start/All programs and see if it is listed in there.If it is try to start it from there.

I also had this problem with any Symantec software that I tried to install on my laptop. My desktop was fine with Norton firewall and A/V, but excactly the same thing happened to me, using firewall/A/V or even ghost. I uninstalled everything and then installed a different A/V progam which found a worm. I then deleted it and thought nothing more of it. A few months later I decided to give Norton another go as I didn't really like the A/V that I was using and it was fine! Maybe a coincidence,but my advice would be to download a freebie, make sure you don't have any viruses lurking about and then re-install Norton. It worked for me and I've had no problems for a few months. click here for Avast.

Daz35, good bit of advice, remove norton which cannot find the worm, install the free anti virus which works, remove the freebie and install that which did not work.
