Run stinger from here

and check virus using these online scanners.

File missing may be some left over application trying to get it some deleted file . Norton not starting automatically most of the time is because the virus has knocked Norton down
or virus still there preventing norton from starting everytime at startup or you have not set that option of automatically starting at bootup
