As of (Nov 28 I get an error message when restarting and logging in.  The message says "Norton Security Can't Access c: Drive".  When I click OK, the system loads my programs and settings and seems to work fine.  Is there some trouble shooting I can go through to understand and or fix this problem.  What might the problem be?  What can I check.  My OS is WinXP Pro and I am referring to System Works 2006
Thanks

I would start by uninstalling the NSW components (mainly GoBack if it was installed)

I stopped using ANY Norton products a long time ago (except for Ghost), becuase they were som intrusive to the OS, and hogged resources like you wouldnt believe....

As Johnb said, uninstall and reinstall NSW, run chkdsk to make sure you aren't suffering from errors on the hard drive.
Post back if that doesn't work.

I had checked the c as a shared drive on the home network so that I could work from a computer on a different floor of the house.  I unchecked this option and when I rebooted, the error went away.  Per an independent email from Symantec, their opinion is that this error is associated with the protected recycling bin.  Now that the problem has gone away, I think that I am good to go.   Thanks to johnb and riteher.
