I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hiya

Does all the RAM show at startup, or when you rightclick My Computer, and choose Properties?

It may mean that the stick that you have just added is failing. Can you check by pulling out the one you have just added, and then re-running the program?

Ever since I installed Norton System works 2001 I get an occasional error saying that little gray box in the middle that sounds like a boing and in it it says...explorer has a problem this program will be closed or something like that and I click on close. And that is that.
But what REALLY surprises me is the follows... EVERYTHING and I MEAN EVERYTHING is extremely SLOW. No matter what application I try to open by either double clicking or right clicking on it, it seems forever before it appears on the screen. For example when I connect to the internet and click on the MS IE browser it does not open till about 30 seconds later. And this happens with all applications. I also did a Windows Disc Doctor analyze through that Norton and it took over 1 hour and it restarted a few times. That NEVER HAPPENED WITH THE OLD(2000) ONE. I then tried to do a Norton Window Doctor analyze and it never got passed the Registry analyze which is the first one at the top for over 20 minutes, until I stopped it. Should I delete this program and reinstall it?????? Or can you tell me why all of a sudden my system has become so SLOW. It also has renamed my RECYCLE BIN to NORTON PROTECTED RECYCLE BIN. What should I do.....????? Last point....when I installed the program I installed the FULL yes FULL version even though the TYPICAL was earmarked. Should I have installed the typical or changed it to the FULL as I did. Please help soon!!!! It has really SLOWED everything down to a snails pace. What should... Read more

Aloha,
I tried to uninstall Norton System works using their uninstall program and it says something like "do you want to uninstall Netscape 7.1" . Is this another way Norton keeps you from uninstalling Norton?? What has Netscape 7.1 has to do with Norton?? It does uninstall it because I uninstalled it and it removed my Netscape 7.1 browser. It is a good thing that I had a backup copy of my drive but Norton is back in again. Any suggestions? I would like to keep Netscape 7.1 because of my multiple users and settings. TIA

I switched to another ISP a few days ago. How do I switch my ISP in Norton System Works 2001 so I can do a live update with Sysmantec.com. My subscription is up to date with me still using the old software.
I can go to the web site under downloads and manually do this but I want the convenient way to do this.

Thanks in advance,
mcdonha in Tennessee.
 

A:Norton System Works 2001 - Email Change

I'm not sure I understand the problem. Was LiveUpdate working before you switched ISP's?

Changing ISP's should have no effect whatever on LiveUpdate. If your ISP is set up correctly in Internet Explorer, then Live Update uses the IE dial up settings to access the Symantec LiveUpdate site.

One other thing you may want to try. Open IE and establish an internet connection to, for instance, you home page. THEN click LiveUpdate and see if that works.

Perhaps if you describe exactly what happens when you click LiveUpdate in the Norton Control Panel, I would better understand the problem.

BTW... I'm a little surprised you can still get support for the 2001 version. I vaguely recall that was the reason I upgraded to 2002, but I'm not certain of that. It's been a while and the ol' memeory ain't what it used to be (I think ... not sure... can't remember)

O.K., here's the deal. I'm running windows 98 se on an IBM with a pentium MMX 200 mhz. I have norton system works installed, and when I use it to check the physical memory in use, it 63.5 -64 megs used out of 64. I also get a message sometimes that says " physical memory very low, may not be able to run anti virus auto protect" I am unaware of how to reduce the ammount of things running on start up. would this help maybe? I can open many programs at the same time without any obvious problems, so I'm confused. Is norton system doctor lieing to me, or am I over taxing my 64 megs of memory?

So I uninstalled some, used the Symclean utility and also used Rnav2003 exec and still the install says I have files left in the system.

Hi, Groovicus was helping me with another problem and he kept mentioning that he thought Norton System Works could be the culprit of my computer not powering off after shutdown. I uninstalled it and still have the problem. But my question is this - Is Norton a good program to use as an all-around system maintenance suite (Disk, Registry, Windows), or can someone recommend another, free or not. I was not using the AV but MacAfee and AVG7 (which I was told was a No-No).

Hi tobydog, Welcome to TSG !!
Go into start, run type in msconfig Then hit ok
Go to startup tab, Uncheck all Norton stuff except Norton auto protect ( You can use the other utilities manually). Select apply, then ok Then reboot.
Now when you reboot, check your anti virus options.
Right click the antivirus icon in the systaem tray. Select configure
Double click autoprotect on left. Check the following:
Start autoprotect when windows starts
Created or downloaded
Program files and documents only
Show auto protect in system tray.
See if that works!

Right click an empty space on the desktop, select New> then select Folder, and rename folder to HJT. Download hijackthis.exe from above link to the HJT folder. Run hijackthise.exe from that folder. Directions for using HJT:

The Scan button is what to press, when everything completes, the Save Log button will be showing, press that and save as hijackthis.txt which will open with Notepad.

My one year subscription for Norton System Works Anti-Virus has just arrived. Although I'll be purchasing more anti-virus protection I've got a little time to look at my options.
My problem is the nuisance of the subscription renewal notice. Not surprisingly Symantec offers no info on how to disable it.

I've just installed Norton System Works 2001 with Antivirus. Everything seems to work fine, but everything has slowed down to a crawl. What can I do to speed things back up and still use the program?
 

A:Norton System Works

NSW can be a resource hog if you run all the programs it wants to at startup + whatever you already had in startup before installing NSW2001. A little more info regarding your computer system, i.e. how much memory, system resources at startup, number of programs running in background, etc. You can disable a lot of the NSW2001 programs and still be effective (NOT the Anti Virus). Also, the more sensors you have running in System Doctor can drag down your operation.

I run NSW2001 Std. & Pro on three computers and laptop, and have found it to be a valuable utility, but it does take some adjustment to settings to keep it from using too many resources.

Hi:
I'm running NSW 3.01, and have been for at least the last year. On two machines that are networked. The primary PC is running Windows ME/256 RAM/18 Gig hdd/Pent 3-600. The second PC is running Windows 98 SE/128 RAM/10 Gig hdd/Pent- 200.
When I attempt to run Disk Doctor, both machines hang when reading the directory structure item 'hosts'. Eventually after about 10 minutes they will restart on their own. But, I can never complete Disk Doctor. Also, running Speed Disk takes a l-o-n-g time...a few hours, but it eventually gets completed. Any ideas? Thanks!

Hiya

I have had a look for NSW 3, but couldn't find it. I could find, however, Norton SystemWorks 2000 version 3, so I'm assuming you have this.

Has this problem always been occuring, or is this a new problem? The reason I ask is that Norton SystemWorks 2002 and 2001 are fully compatible with Windows Millennium Edition. However, Norton SystemWorks 2000 (version 3.0) and earlier are not compatible with Windows Millennium Edition.

Also, when it is running, what are your rescources like? For each PC, go to Run and type MSINFO32. If it comes up with an error in ME, then Programs | Accesories | System Tools | System Information.

Choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list. If, for ME, you cannot just copy, the using the drop down menus, look for Save as Text file. Then, copy/paste that.

Also, which OS is NSW actually on (host)?

Regards

I have Norton System Works installed and it has the little box that comes up on start-up that shows the disk health, optium etc. After defragging and running all the goodies to keep my computer maintained, the box doesn't register properly. The light should be green (disk health) and the optium should state the percentage usually 99-100%. Should I be concerned about this? If I go back in to defrag, I can't because the computer doesn't need it so I know everything is ok. It's just that the box doesn't always reflect that.

Others will prbably have better advice - but try this.
Make sure the Norton disk is out and start computer from power off, a cold boot. Norton may intercede with a scandisk which you can let go or bypass by hitting enter - probably 2 times.
After Systemwork is installed, some final loading goes on during the reboot.
You might also try to boot and hit F8? to load maually.
Post back further info as you try different things.

A:Norton system works installation

I always install the separate utilities rather than the entire shell. I donít have the latest version with activation though.

If you explore the CD each application has its separate Setup.exe file. Click that and you can install them separately. I donít install Norton Utilities on XP. It had some stuff that was handy on Win98, but there isnít much it does for XP to make up for the stupid Norton protected recycle bin. If the new version has an option to never make that active in the first place it might be OK. I do like the other parts of the suite.

Norton AV updates normally if you install it separately BTW.

Welcome to TSG!
Good planning and preparation is the key to a clean install of any sophisticated software. It is good you are asking questions before attempting an install.
McAfee should be uninstalled per its instructions at their website before any attempt to install systemworks 2002.
Here is an article put out by Norton that explains preparation for Install of Systemworks.

Lng story, but I replaced NSW 2001 with 2004...a three package deal with NSW, Personal Firewall, and Anti-Spam/. In doing so, you must remove NSW 2001 and the new version starts that removal, but also took my browswer, hosed my Registry and was a general SNAFU/FUBAR finally requiring an fdisk/format and reinstall of everything! I do NOT recommend NSW 2004!

Even though I used Add/Remove and used the NSW uninstaller, Anti-Spam and Personal Firewire are still showing entries in various places...all inactive, but still there (an annoyance and I hate to mess with the Registry again).

I have just have to install Win 2000 on one of my computers that originally has Win 98. As part of that process I am having to reinstall most of the software...that's okay, I don't have anything else to do .

I had Norton System Work on that computer and now I am trying to reinstall it. However, I must first uninstall it, and that is where I am having difficulty. When I use Add/Remove Programs, I get an error that it cannot find the 'log'. When I try to install over what I had originally, I get a message that the installation process cannot be completed until all of the original program is uninstalled.

At some time in the past, I had a similar problem with another software package, and I was advised to use Add-Remove Plus. Well that version is no longer available.

Do you have any advice as to how I can remove all of Norton System Works so that I can reinatall it again?

Thanks.

george

You didn't say what version of Norton you're using.

Edit: removed a bad link.

Hi,

I have a version of 2003 and 2005 contained in the Systemworks Suite and they both use the same interface to do this and other options you probably would be interesting in setting. I have no idea if 2004 is the same or not, but would bet it is.

Go to Norton Anti-virus and at the top before you enter the main area, there is a bar that says OPTIONS, Click that, click NORTON ANTI-VIRUS and it will open a window with a whole bunch of options. You can look through the options on the Left side of the window and as you click on each, different options will come up that YOU can set the way you want them. You will probably find the option you are looking for in the System Auto protect area, but not sure on your version. Anyway, all the options are there for what you want to do. As a rule with Norton, the Default setting is the best. Mine is on auto-protect and it scans the computer every Friday evening at 8:00 P.M., and I just keep using the computer while it scans.

Hope this helps and if you have further questions, let us know.

Hi.
I put Norton System Works 2000 on my computer at work... it doesn't work with Win XP... and now I can't uninstall it either. I tried remove/add program, I tried uninstall, and I tried delete. Then I tried re-installing it, to uninstall it.. nothing works. I get an error message. Can not delete.
I have ordered Norton Professional 2004, in hopes that it will delete or over-write the old one. Haven't tried it yet though.
Anybody have any experience with this?
XP has been difficult on all of our older programs as well.
Thanks
Debby

OK...Finally buying the workstation of my dreams...an ADK Core 2 Pro high-end quad-core system for my recording/mastering studio. The techs at ADK DO NOT want me to use anything related to Symantec on this rig. I had told them that I used Norton System Works as my diagnostic utility, which comes bundled w/ Norton Personal Firewall (which is also packaged w/ NAV.)They recommended I go w/ Grisoft AVG...which will take care of the firewall, internet security & anti-virus thing...but can someone recommend a diagnostic utility to take over for NSW? I currently run PC Tools Registry Mechanic as a backup to System Works (& which does a better job of cleaning & organizing the registry)...so I guess I only really need a "Win Doctor" type utility to complete the package.Thanks,mark4man
