Norton Internet Security, all of a sudden, what happened?

by misst / September 26, 2004 2:57 PM PDT

ok, so i've had norton internet security for a while now. always worked, killed pop ups etc. just a few minutes ago, i notice the icon wasn't in the bottom tray where it usually is. so i open it up, and this is what i see:

System Status: Urgent Attention
Security: Off
Personal Firewall: Disabled
Intrusion Detection: Disabled

Privacy Control: Disabled
Ad Blocking: Disabled
Spam Alert: Disabled

Auto-protect: Off

i should just be able to click enable/turn on and things would be ok. but when i click on that, nothing happens. i can't change anything. what should i do?
