navex15.sys PLEASE HELP

  Tony 21:36 09 Feb 2005

Things were fine with windows xp. I added the google toolbar. On restarting the computer a Windows installer screen started and then the blue screen of death flased at me!!!!

It only flashes on but the seperate bit at the bottom mentions "navex15.sys"

I tried safe mode to remove the google bar. It went but still flashing blue.
I tried 3 points of system restore but that doesn't work.
I tried removing as much from the startup of msconfig as i dared - no help
I tried a google search but didn't find the answer BUT I am SURE that you Guys can help!!!

navex15.sys is part of Norton.

If you do not have Norton installed then panic. Otherwise relax.

You always give good advice. I have Norton sysworks and Internet securities installed. So please can you tell me what to do to get my machine started again. P.S. I did a seasrch here but no info.

Read this

After you install a Symantec Norton AntiVirus updated driver, you may receive any of the following error messages on a blue screen:
0000001e : c0000005 00000085 00000000 00000085
0000001e : c0000005 f1145494 00000000 0000013c
Note that the parameters in the error message may vary.
This behavior can occur if you install an updated driver with the following time stamp: File name Time stamp

You could try to remove Norton and reinstall it. (If you can get to it.)

So, it's saying avoid this update.

Go into safe mode and remove norton antivirus?

I am afraid i can't read the whole error message as it only flases on for less than one second.

  Tony 22:08 09 Feb 2005

uninstall anything norton in safe mode:-(
Can i disable it in msconfig?

  VoG II 22:13 09 Feb 2005

Yes try that.

  Tony 22:27 09 Feb 2005

even if i disable all startup in msconfig i get the same blue screen.

What else can I do??

  Tony 22:43 09 Feb 2005

I think i also had the security updates since last restart.

Could that be the problem?
