Processes stay open even after program is closed.

I recently installed Norton 360 on a PC. I am having issues that when I am closing a program (namely Outlook 2003 and AOL) the processes linger in task manager and do not end. This is causing the program not to open when I run the program again unless I go into task manager and end the process (waol.exe and OUTLOOK.exe). I am assuming it is an issue with Norton, but I am not 100% sure. I am running Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 with Service Pack 3. Any thoughts?

Yeah, I've seen that problem before and the problem was involving 360. Unfortunately, I think the solution was to uninstall 360. I'll search for that problem.

Is Office 2003 being used?
If so check that SP3 is installed:

I beleive this can also be fixed by diabling the Add-In in Outlook.

Unfortunately uninstalling Norton is not an option. I tried disabling all add ins (also Outlook is completely up to date) and still same result. Its got to be Norton because its effecting other apps, is there possibly a setting or patch to correct this?

If disabling the Add In did not you, may just have to turn off email scanning in Nortons itself:

1 Exit any email programs that are running, such as Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express.

2 Start Norton AntiVirus.
If Norton AntiVirus is installed as part of Norton SystemWorks or Norton Internet Security, then start that program.

3 Click Options.
If you see a menu, click Norton AntiVirus.

4 In the left pane, click Email.

5 In the right pane, uncheck Scan incoming Email and Scan outgoing Email.

6 Click OK.

7 If you use Norton AntiVirus 2006/2005, then in the Protection Alert dialog box, on the drop-down menu, click Permanently, and then click OK.

8 Exit Norton AntiVirus.
