I've just upgraded from Norton Anti-Virus 2003 to Norton Internet Security 2007. It wasn't easy! Had to uninstall 2003 then restart install of 2007. But when I try to start 2007 I get the error message "Unable to open this Norton product. Please restart your computer". Needless to say, I get the same error after restarting the computer.
