I recently purchased the Norton Antivirus 2004 from Symantec.I have tried to open the file, and use it to examine my computer for bugs, but the pop-up window disappears after a few seconds. I was wondering if I was doing something wrong, or if there is some problem I am not aware of.

Okay....so you can't download the software or did it download and you can't install it. This isn't very clear.

This all started when I discovered I had the "Blaster" virus, and was trying to download some security updates and "patches" from Microsoft, with little success. The pop-up windows kept disappearing on me. I guess I ran out of patience, and so bought the Norton '04, and it got rid of the virus, but I haven't been able to do anything else with it since. I think I got it downloaded OK, but I am not sure if it is installed properly. There is a shortcut icon on my desktop, and another icon on the "Google" search bar, but the pop-up windows on both of them will not stay open.
I tried sunray 2003's link, and was able to do a security search, but was unable to complete a virus scan. It said I needed Internet Explorer 5 or better, which is strange, because I have Internet Explorer 6.

Have you tried repairing or reinstall IE 6  ? That should help you for the virus scan cos something might be corrupted with IE 6,norton doesnot like

Also be sure to turn off firewall and any pop-up blocker before doing this

So now your IE works fine with all websites

what is the status on your Anti virus ? Have you tried removing the Anti-virus and reinstalling it back  ( i am still not sure if you had got the setup file)

Only the virus scan from norton's website doesnot work , is it ?

If you turn off the popup blocker can you open up Norton's....see popup blockers do some weird stuff.

Yes, my IE works fine.
The Anti Virus is still "misbehaving."
I am not sure how I would go about removing and then re-installing it. Could you give me some instruction, please?
It was the virus scan from Norton's website that refused to work, despite my attempts to satisfy its requirements.
I think I turned off the pop-up blocker OK. It is not on the toolbar anymore, and the box is still unchecked. Is there any other place it might be hiding?

I  guess I sort of abandoned this one for a while. I was able to download the program after I had solved another problem (System Restore). So I came back and decided to split the points. It's nice to have stuff settled, eh?
