Question Right Click Launches Antivirus Install
PENTIUM-4 running XP Pro, Version 2002 with SP2, Norton antivirus

Each time I right click on an icon, folder, file or just about anything the following Symantec antivirus window is launched "Please wait while windows configures symantec antivirus"
Then it says "the feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable"
"Enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package'Symantec antivirus msi' in the box below" which has the following path "\\HOME2008\appz\NAV corp1015\Sav\". I do not have the original antivirus disk but I still get the free upgrades. When I cancel this window the window behind it says "ERROR 1706. No valid source could be found for this product, windows installer can not continue". I hope someone can help me as this is a frustrating problem for me, Thanks....... Paul

First I would go to Control Panel ---> Add/Remove Programs -----> Norton Antivirus.

Then I would restart make sure all is good, then resintall Norton Antivirus.

Hope this helps.

No Disk
I would do than if I had the disk to re-install the antivirus program, Thanks for the advice but I really want to keep the program as I have paid for it as well as the upgrade but will delete as a last resort.
