Hello all, I'm looking for assistance for the following symptoms;

Loss of browser use, IE, Firefox show page not found immediately. Works fine in Safe mode.

Opening Norton's Security I get 'system integrator failure' message.

Loss of start up bar in normal mode.

Some backround... Running windows XP service pack 2. Recent new hard drive. Recent new cable internet connection. I use my comp primarily to play an MMORPG. I had these issues several weeks ago and used the recovery discs to restore my computer, reinstalled software and all seemed normal for a day or so then the same thing happened. I took my cpu to a service center and they reformatted, reinstalled and updated base software. Again all seemed normal. I was able to load games and run online patchers and even log in, but when I restarted the for the first time I experienced a long delay in starting, looked at desktop with no icons or toolbar for several minutes before they popped up. Then I got the Norton message and 'page not found' issue. I just shut it down and left for work so at the moment I still have a start up bar but that's how it started the other times.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Try disabling Norton temporarily and see if the problem stops.
