Hi, this is my first post.

I have this annoying error that says "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have appropriate permission to access the item". This message comes up ever I delete a random file (sometimes it comes, sometimes it doesn't), I try to change the computer settings such as the display...etc. I figured this is because of my Norton Antivirus that expired. I did everything to delete Norton. I downloaded the Uninstall Tool and when i ran that, the error message popped up.

I am the Admin of this Windows Vista Laptop. I tried so many things and it never works. Please help me, This is really annoying.

hello,
when you run the removal tool, right click it and choose "run as administrator" see if that helps..
Have A Great Day

Your computer may be infected.
I suggest, you start new topic in "Am I Infected?" forum.
