When I reboot my system I get a pop-up error message from my Norton SystemWorks '03:

header of pop-up window is:
"Norton Protection: ATTENTION"

The text in the box is:
"Log File Initialization Error, Drive C:"

If I X out of the window, or click ok approx 3/8 of the time I get the BSOD with a stop message referring to a driver for my Gravis Controller.

I fail to see what the driver could have to do with a Log File error?

This has me very nervous as I don't really wanna lose my drive. What's more, it's a very annoying little glitch.

I've checked Symantec Consumer knowlegde base, and googled for fixes/info extensively.

Please, any help/info would be GREATLY appreciated.

hi,i got the same problem.
Whenever you restart the computer, a "Log file initialization error" appears. The message may also include the drives that are affected.
To enhance the Recycle Bin's functions, Norton Utilities sets up a folder within the Recycled folder on the hard drives. If there is an error creating this folder, the "Log file initialization error" message appears.
so you need to disable your norton protected recycle bin to fix this problem

1. Right-click the Recycle Bin icon, and choose Properties.
2. Select the Global tab.
3. Select the "Use One Settings for All Drives" radio button.
4. Select the Recycle Bin tab.
5. Select the "Standard Recycle Bin" radio button.
6. Change the text in the Title box to "Recycle Bin."
7. Uncheck "Show Norton Protection Status" if possible.
8. Select the Norton Protection tab.
9. Select a drive and uncheck Enable Protection. Repeat for each drive.
10. Select the "Also Empty Protected Files" option.
11. Click OK twice.
12. Reboot the computer.
:) done.
it should work .
good luck!
