Norton anti-virus mystery

recently installed a trial version of norton anti-virus 2001 (i know its out of date!) in order to check my computer for viruses to see if it fixes any of the problems i’ve been having, but whenever i start it, it closes itself off after less than a minute of it being open for no apparent reason, whether its busy doing anything or not!?

does anyone know why or what i can do?

Go to symantic web site you can do a online virus check without loading anything , you may have a virus as you already stated.

NAV 2001 doesn’t work on Windows XP. Since you didn’t tell then I can’t tell what OS you have.

Perhaps it closes itsself because it’s a timed’out trial version?

Anyway, try housecall.antivirus.com for online scanning. Works well for me :slight_smile:
