Considering that I was not able to start up the computer without entering into Safe Mode prior to removing Norton, I think that might have fixed the problem. Now I have two new problems. 1st, what is your recommendation for a new AntiVirus software? 2nd, my desktop background is white and there is a button to "Restore my Active Desktop", which when pushed an "Internet Explorer Script Error" pops up. Whether I click Yes or No to "continue running scripts on this page" my desktop will not recover to its previous state.
Also, I noticed that when I started up the computer in Safe Mode I noticed that I had an icon on the desktop that was named firefox.exe. I was going to delete it, but I was more focused on uninstalling Norton. Should I load back up into Safe Mode and delete this icon (I don't believe I ever intentionally copied this file onto this location)? Is there anything else I should check for before assuming that everything on my computer is working fine?
