There is an inherent problem with the compatibility of Norton Antivirus 2004 and Windows XP Home operating system. After Norton is loaded and the computer is started, you get an error message that there is a problem with Norton and the computer disables the Norton. They give you a list of possible problems and the solutions to correct it. I have tried them all, but still the Norton won't enable. It apparently is a problem with a security setting in Windows. The Norton products homepage recognizes the problem and tells users to disable a certain Windows security file and then reinstall Norton. I'm not comfortable with deleting the security file because it could cause problems.
I was just wondering if anyone has ever heard of this problem. I was also wondering if anyone could recommend another brand of antivirus software that I could use in place of Norton. Thanks.
