Hi,

My computer is running Windows 7 Professional and I have Norton Security Suite installed. The control panel says that Norton's spyware protection and virus protection have both been turned off, and when I try to turn them back on, or start Norton directly, I get this message:

C:\Program Files\Norton Security Suite\Engine\4.3.0.5\uistub.exe

The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.



I just recently downloaded and installed Firefox 5. Not sure whether or not it's related, but the timeline is close.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Connor

Thanks for the help.

Here is the log from the Malware bytes scan:

And now when I try to open Norton, I get the following dialog box:

Windows Security
---------------
These files can't be opened.
----------------------------
Your Internet security settings prevented one or more files from being opened.

C:\Program Files\Norton Security Suite\Engine\4.3.0.5\uistub.exe
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Close

Why can't these files be opened?


Any ideas on the next step? Thanks.

See the solution here. This is most likely not malware. }} L@@K
