    Also is it possible that windows xp home 2002 has a built in anti virus or firewall already with in it? (couldn't seem to find anything)


    If it doesn't have an antivirus program I was going to install norton for someone who has xp and they can't seem to find their windows xp disk could this be a problem?

    XP has no build-in AV in any version, and Norton 2003 work fine with all versions of XP. You shouldn't need the distribution disk to install an application like Norton AV, but you obviously should have it handy, because there are many situations where you could require the disk.

    ok Thank-you johnwill,

    I have already sent them searching for it. I was trying to get their spell check option working in their outlook express, and discovered how to fix it but need the disk. They have the envelope with the # but no disk.

    You could try stuffing the jacket of the disk into the CD, but I suspect it's not going to be effective. :D
