Yes, I am a newbie... I ended up finding this site from doing a search on a yellow pop-up message that I seem to receive upon start-up of the PC. It appears on the bottom right (just above the taskbar). It states "Symantec AntiVirus Auto-Protect is Disabled" with a red circle and cross through it to the left side of the text.
Now... there are a few quirky things that go on after the PC boots, until this pop-up appears. I can access the internet, but.... I cannot do the following:
1. Right click my computer, properties. The hour glass appears and nothing occurs.
2. Start -> control panel -> network connections. Hangs.
Then after 5-10mins the pop-up appears and then.... all of a sudden items 1 and 2 appear.
I'm running XP Professional, Service Pack 2. The symantec version I am using is 10.1.5.5000.
This is rather fustrating and I have searched google, and altavista.
If someone can advise how to insert a picture of the message I will.
Thanks in advance for anyone's support or ideas,
