HanDyCaM,

Navap is part of Norton AntiVirus.  Try starting in Safe Mode & uninstalling Norton AntiVirus - or SystemWorks, if that's what you've got.  If you can then start properly, try reinstalling NAV / SystemWorks.

My mistake I worded the question wrong.  I had already gone into safe mode and deleted the program.  What I was
trying to get at was, what could of caused the problem, could it have been a virus or something else.

Norton/Symantec products are considered as non-friendly to Windows, especially their 2004 release.

They do create conflicts and problems in too many systems.

For starters, check this:

Unlikely to be a virus if you were previously running NAV & it was up to date.

You can get errors if you install a later version of NAV / NSW over an earlier version.  See:-
