    alright i was given a cd by a friend of a friend, and it was getting passed around as Norton Antivirus 2005. So i decided to be an idiot and try it out to upgrade my 2004. The installation went fine i thought, but after restarting a window saying my msi didn't execute the setup or something to that nature. i continued to reboot, and then norton wasn't even on my computer. I then noticed that little things on internet explorer seemed to have messed up. I can't login to my hotmail account anymore, nothing happens when i press the sign in button on another account, and on a couple of other sites the login buttons have disappeared completely, makin it impossible for me to view anything under internet explorer. I downloaded mozilla and it works fine with everything showing up. Also whatever this is has infested my search function on the start toolbar. Instead of everything showing up in the window, all that shows up is a little animated dog that says search companion, there isn't even a title on the window, its blank. I need major help people! i need to get rid of this somehow and virus scans aren't picking it up. HELP ME PLEASE IN ANY WAY
