    I have recently encountered a HUGE problem. Everytime I turn my computer on, Goback starts to load and then says "Please wait", only to give me an error message 5 minutes later (error 0x1) saying that my system has become unstable and I need to restart, and the cycle repeats. I found a patched Goback that does not exhibit this problem but I need some way of bypassing Goback to get into Windows ME to disable or uninstall Goback.

    PLEASE HELP!

    P.S. - Reinstalling Windows is NOT an option, I need everything on my hard drive!

    Have you tried tapping the F8 key during boot up and going into safe mode? Then uninstall goback from safe mode.

    Let us know

    yes, you can't get into safe mode until after goback loads

    is there any way to use a boot disk to delete/disable/uninstall goback?

    Okay I did that (which is also what symantec's website says to do) but when it brought me to the Goback utility screen no window came up asking me to disable or uninstall Goback, and after I waited for 10 minutes a message came up with the error "gb_genlog(181)"

    PLEASE HELP! I REALLY NEED THOSE FILES!

    Not sure what to tell you at this point. Maybe someone else has something different. I did find this on another site,

    To disable Norton GoBack during the computer restart
    Restart your computer.
    When the Norton GoBack start screen appears, press the Spacebar.
    On the Norton GoBack start menu, click Disable.
    A message informs you that disabling Norton GoBack will clear the history.
    Click Yes.
    Click OK.
    Click Continue.
    The computer automatically restarts and Norton GoBack is disabled.


    Good Luck

    Why use GoBack when you have System Restore?

    you answer a query with a question? if you dont know the answer why bother replying and wasting peoples time.

    i dont use it myself, its for my husband, and i dont see what is wrong with using it, i think its stupid that vista cant run norton go back, system restore is nothing like norton go back,

    i never had any problems when i used to use norton go back, but i always have problems with system restore, especially since getting vista.

    anyone else, out there actually find a solution to this problem yet?

    thanks
