:thumbsup: I just dropped in to say Hello to All.

I am hoping to find someone who'll be able to help me with my comp. problem.
At the moment l have 2 major one's,(Make that 3 if u include ME!)

Firstly, Can anyone tell me why my window (2000) 'SEARCH' does not respond on most files l want to open it freeze's.
It will send a message to say"not responding" but at the same time l can open it up and it will work fine for a few moments,then goes haywire on me????

Next question -
Is there anyway l can get rid of Nortons anti virus prog,l have deleted every thing l can possibly find on it, except the 'symantec file which want allow me to delete...something about a protected file????

Thankyou from

Welcome to BC!

Even though the introduction forum is not the place for posting questions, this pinned topic may help you remove Norton completely:


If you still have problems removing Norton, then create a separate post in the AntiVirus, Firewall and Privacy Products and Protection Methodsforum where members with more experience in Norton can provide additional help.

Your question about Search is somewhat confusing. Does the search function itself work, and it is only when you click on a file that it finds that it freezes in the actual launching of the file? Does the "not responding" message applies to the seach function or to the file opening, and can you describe exactly what "goes haywire" means? Does this happen to every kind of file type, or just one. Maybe telling us in a step by step way, for example, of what you do and then what happens with each step, would help us understand the problem. A good place to post about this problem would be in the Windows NT/2000/2003 forum.

I am sure that our members can help you with both of these problems.

Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
