very vague- NAV 2001 uh oh

kids got a used windows 98 with NAV 2001 installed- very expired- i went to the uninstaller to remove it- got a pop up about shared files being in quarantine do i want to remove or leave- i chose to leave them- then comp froze- reset- then the black screen and a message about a file needed to boot NAV and it mentioned the 386 file- what file is that? do i need the original NAV disk to fix it so i can remove it? dorry this is vague-i was hoping to go into safe mode and delete nav???

Do you mean: SYMEVNT.386 ??

If you have uninstalled (a version of) Norton antivirus, he should do this:

Go to Start/run, type Regedit.

Drill down to

Click on the plus sign preceding 'VXD'
A long list of VXD's unfolds.

Locate Symevnt.

Highlight it, and press the DELETE key.
Quit Registry Editor, and then restart your computer.

Hi Lise, are you getting any

kind of specific error numner? Norton uses 4 digit numbered error message usually and it would be a big help of you have one of them. It would look something like "Error 1921" for an example.

That's great Lisa. Marianna deserves the credit

and she had to leave for a while but I'm sure she'll see this. You are welcome and NOT giving the kids internet access yet is a very smart move on your part for sure. Enjoy the Elf Bowling. LOL
