Every time I start up my computer, Windows installer pops up and says that

"Norton Antivirus is missing a Repair feature.
Plesase uninstall and install again."

This pops up 3 consecutive times. Do I really have to reinstall? Or is there a way to disable this? This really slows down my startup. (ATI takes enough time already)

Matt B, you don't mention what version of Norton you are using. There are different (possible) fixes for each product and situation........ example........here. If this is the wrong one please let us know and we will see if we can provide further help.

Well, its still popping up. If I really have to reinstall it, will the subscription become messed up?

I had the exact same problem a few days ago. I have Norton 2006 Security.

I went to the link that Fifeflyer recommended and ran the Norton Program at least three times. I also followed Enthusiasts' instructions about disabling Norton.

To be honest I don't know which method worked, but I now have Windows Installer installed and no more pesky window pop ups.

Best of Luck,
