    Email from poster (It's best if you'll post back to the thread as there are others who can help, and need to know all that you have tried)

    Well, as Candy already said, the key question is whether he uninstalled Norton Antivirus.

    If he didn't, he should uninstall and subsequently reinstall the program.

    If he has uninstalled (a version of) Norton antivirus, he should do this:

    Go to Start/run, type Regedit.

    Drill down to
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD

    Click on the plus sign preceding 'VXD'
    A long list of VXD's unfolds.

    Locate Symevnt.

    Highlight it, and press the DELETE key.
    Quit Registry Editor, and then restart your computer.

    Cheers,
