Instead of briefly identifying the problem, I feel it is germane to explain a little bit of the history which has led up to it. First, the System icon was present within Control Panel "before" Norton Removal Tool was used to uninstall Norton PC Checkup. However, it was unresponsive, meaning it would never open up. After the Norton Removal Tool was run which allowed the successful removal of Norton PC Checkup, I now notice the System icon does not even show within Control Panel any more.
With the described problem at hand, could someone provide some possible fixes for this issue? I am thinking that somehow Windows XP has somehow become corrupted in connection with the glitches of the Norton suite. It is reasonable to think this because the System icon did disappear within Control Panel following the use of the Norton Removal Tool to uninstall Norton PC Checkup. Perhaps Windows XP can be repaired. I do have the installation CD available if needed.
Any shared input to this question will be appreciated.
