Norton anti virus 2002 and Win2000pro problem

  richierich 22:23 18 Jul 2003

When I try to do a full system scan using above when it gets to Winn system32 it seems to stop. The indication is that it is still scanning but the files scanned numbers dont increase, I left it going all night and the numbers were the same.
I also tried it in safe mode and it finished OK but Im sure I should be able to do it in normal mode too.

if you have problems doing a virus scan,defrag etc in "normal" mode then its probally because of other running programs/processes interfering.

if it works in safe mode then continue to do so in safe mode.

even though i can do the above in normal mode, i do it in safe mode.always works.

You could try an alternative anti-virus programme. AVG's Grisoft free download has served me well and it updates the files either manually or automatically, as programmed. I found that Mesh themselves use this programme and reasoned that what's good enough for the manufacturers, is good enough for me.
