    Disable the virus protection. What is happening is that XP is modifying system files and Norton is catching it and telling you that it thinks a virus is modifying the Windows 98 install, when in fact the upgrade is modifying it.

    I would also check and make sure that your version of Norton is compatable with XP. If not, then upinstall it.

    Hi ian.p.h,
    You will need Norton 2002 for XP. Brooks suggestion should solve your problem
