I find that when I have norton running I cannot open any operating system 2003 applications once I am connected to the internet. When i disable norton I can open the applications.
ANy ideas on what may be happening here?

You may have to describe what you mean by "operating system applications".
I would think Norton (Norton what?) has a way to change settings for applications that require/want internet access. If that's so, you probably will need to set things up in Norton to tell it what to permit and what not to permit. MS Office applications for instance are notorious for wanting internet access. You can block it in the application, or block or allow it in Norton.
Disclaimer - I've used Norton AV so little, that I'm not sure what they have. But most anti-malware products run like that. Is there HELP in Norton that you could read?
