I have an old DELL Dimension running Win98. I have installed NAV2005 on it and now winword keeps crashing. This is also happening to publisher ... Other programs seem to work ok. I'm thinking some resource problem ... Could NAV2005 push this over the edge? Any one had a similar issue???

Norton - problematic, intrusive, and a memory hog. :mad: (n)

How much RAM do you have installed?

there is 128mb RAM - I've set the pagefile to max 512mb ... it's really dragging it down. I don't really want to start buying more RAM for this ... I think that I will just remove NAV05.

Good luck with removing Norton Antivirus 2005. After you uninstall it, you'll likely need to look for and remove several leftover files and registry entries. :(

Go into the MSCONFIG "Startup" tab and uncheck and disable as many programs as you can. Other than

ScanRegistry

SystemTray

Antivirus program entries


very little else, if any, needs to be checked and enabled. The smaller you keep the startup load, the better your computer will run and the more performance you can wring from it. (y)

You're welcome.

If you go to the Symantec site, they might provide instructions for removing it.

Sometimes, you get lucky and most of it will go via the add/remove programs, IF you haven't already tried playing with things.

And 128 megs of ram would be problematic with much running as it is.

you need MORE than 128 for sure. I'm running 128 with 2002, and thats a pain as it is,

add more ram and that will solve your problem

NAV rocks, other people I know use it with no problems

Hi Sorry about that . The end result was that I managed to remove NAV05 . After that I ran a scan disk and defrag (standard practice) and reinstalled NAv03... All is back working. I didn't release that NAV05 would react that way on my system. Thanks for the ideas.
