Norton probably has you blocked. Try using the tool in the link below to remove any remnants of Norton.

Assuming you have Windows XP,
Try this:

Start --> Run Type in sfc /scannow Make sure there is a space between the c and the /

Click okay. Your system will now check many of your system files for damage or absence and either repair or replace them. If prompted, insert your installation disk into the drive. Please note that this is different from a recovery disk.
