Have you tried restoring your system?

A number of experts agree that the retail AV version of McAfee, Norton and
Trend Micro has become cumbersome and bloated for the average user.

For the average home user there are better, more suitable applications
available.

The retail version of Norton can play havoc with your pc. Uninstall it
using Norton's own uninstall tool
http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039
and get a refund :)
As suggested on the site, you may wish to print out the directions before
proceeding.

If this doesn't work use this:
Revo Uninstaller Freeware - Remove unwanted programs and traces easily
http://www.revouninstaller.com /

and/or

RegSeeker

Then use NTREGOPT to compact the registry; Follow instructions.

While Norton's removal tool usually gets the job done, you may also want to
go to:
http://www.snapfiles.com/get/winsockxpfix.html
and download a copy of winsockxpfix just in case. Rarely, the removal of
NIS breakes the networking components in XP to the point where internet
access is impossible. This little utility will fix it back up.

Good luck :)

That usually means that the Symantec Network Drivers aren't working
correctly.

I'm not using Norton and so I'm sorry having no solution for your
problem. But: I read more than often about Norton-problems (remnants  in
many locations after deinstallation, problems with updates and and and).
So I recommend to think about to leave Norton and using one of the other
programs which have not such multi problems Norton seems to have.

Good luck.
