I recently re-installed XP Home (original OEM disc)but found that soem of my programmes were still on the C drive afterwaards? some I can access others not. My main problem is with Norton Systemworks (2003. It will not let me scan the drive for errors as it says "pgnorton.dll" unavailable. I have uninstalled and then reinstalled but no luck. t looks like this part of norton is under the new install. I have also tried to remove manually by removing alll references to norton but no luck help!!!!
I do not particularly want to reinstall the whole lot again!

It sounds like you did NOT format then re-install. Try that.

and hopefully it will remove corrupt bit
then reinstall it - see if that works

inbetween installs you could run CCLEANER or similar to get rid of broken links and also regedit or regsweeper etc,. to remove Norton from registry keys.

Go to this site click here, make a search for the missing file that is pgnorton.dll, copy and paste it to windows/system32. Hope it works
