Have you been running that PC without ANY protection? AV, malware, spyware?

It does look like your system has been compromised.

Post more details, including Windows version.

Does this happen when you attempt to log on to othger sites as well, or is it just Norton?

Symantec have produced a tool which you can download to help fix activation problems:

When you first install Norton AV it gives you the option to run an initial scan.Did you do this? And if so, did it find anything?
