Disable Norton Antivirus.

I recently was installing some software and it told me to make sure no antivirus prog was running. I cannot find any means of doing it.
There is nothing on the task bar relating to it
nor is it listed when I go to con-alt-del. The only thing I have is a NAV icon on the desktop
which allows no facility for disabling it.
Any help would be much apreciated. Meshuga.

sounds like your norton antivirus isnt running

If you have Norton Anitivirus running, there should be an icon in the task bar. Right-click that icon and you should get the option to disable Auto protect.

Which version of Windows, and which version of Norton?

Hi tran1. As I mentioned in my original posting
I have no Icon in the task bar, only an icon on the desktop. Using the icon on the desktop I can regularly update new virus protection but it looks like its not running.
In reply to jazzypop re the same subject I have
Win 98 but dont know the NAV version. Meshuga.

If you go to control panel and add and remove what Norton software your running will show here what ever you want can be changed by clicking Norton then change or you can remove it.

As stated above, I would uninstall then reinstall Norton

Sorry, I didn't read it properly.

Start Norton anti-virus, At the bottom of the menu, there should be a box with 'More details', click on it. when it asks you to disable, click yes.

a suggestion, you could press crtl+alt+del and see if norton appears in the list of running programs. normally it would be navw32 or something like that. if you don't find it it looks like its not enabled. in which case you should enable it after you finish installing your s/ware :o)

There was a virus knocking about a while ago that could disable AV protection. Could be worthwhile to use the on-line virus checker at Symantec's website before you reinstall.
