So, recently I removed Norton from my computer and instead downloaded the free 90 day trial of Windows Live One Care. The last three times or so that I've restarted, the check-disk has came up before login. First time around I let it run and thought that would be the end of it, but it has shown up every time I've rebooted since. In addition, Windows Live One itself won't start up - it tells me to restart the computer to remedy the problem, but that hasn't worked for me. I also tried removing and re-downloading Windows Live One Care, and that hasn't helped either.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!

How did you uninstall Norton?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I used the add/remove program menu in the Control Panel and removed Norton and all of its updates and other bits and pieces like liveupdate, etc.

Norton is notoriously difficult to get rid of. Download and run the Norton Removal Tool to get rid of any left over bits.

All right, ran the Norton removal tool. What next? Uninstall and reinstall the Windows Live One Care or...?
The disk check still came up on restart as well.

Go Start > Run and type "chkdsk /r". You will get some kind of question asking if you want to run chkdsk the next time the system starts. Press "Y" for yes and then reboot. chkdsk should run. After that try re-installing Windows Live One Care.
