    I resized my HD partitions and just generally jiggered around moving and deleting files. WELL!!! After that I couldn't get NAV to run, nor would it unistall, nor remove so I just deleted all the NAV files I could find. I'm now trying to install Norton Sysytem Works but it tells me it can't install the anti virus because a previous copy is installed. I've tried Reg Cleaner and deleted all the NAV in there but there must still be something somewhere. Any help please.

    Do you have any of the NAV services running in the systray? Do an alt+ctrl+del and see if ant services are running there too. If they are, highlight them nad select end task

    Yes, there was an entry lurking in the backgound. Deleted that. Everything good now. Thank you,
