and; if so; you have two antivirus programs on there, not a good idea as they will clash and your pc will not run properly;how up to date is your AVG ? have you taken on the recent large updates?

Start in Safe Mode (hit f8 repeatedly before the boot-screen appears) and go to Control Panel/Add Remove to remove Norton (and LiveReg/LiveUpdate), then boot normally and let AVG pick the problem up and deal with it.
