Hi there, I was wondering if you guys could steer me in the right direction on a problem.
I've had this computer totally disconnected from the web for nearly a year, and so instead of paying to have my norton 2001 updated when I reconnected it, I uninstalled that and decided to go for AVG as family have sworn by it ever since they got it.
However, despite being impressed by AVG its been causing some major problems with booting. These have largely been a variety of fatal exception 06 errors and the machine rebooting just before the windows 98 logon appears. Often I have only got it to boot one in every three attempts so far.
I've been browsing around and I do believe the culprit is some reminants of Norton lurking somewhere. I went back and removed live update and other symantec products, but interestingly live update, despite being last to go still believed there was something symantec remaining.
Despite promises of removing registry entries, Symantec's little removal tool did not help either, and I finally braved it to go fishing in the registry myself using regedit.
A quick search with hints from a previous post (by Kittykatty I believe) found references to both Symantec and Norton in the registry.
I'm a bit dubious about nuking registry entries, is this the way forward? Or is there something else I could possibly try?
Anyway, any tips would be much appriciated.
