Close all the programs running except Explorer and Systray.

Now does Norton work? If so, you've probably got a virus that closes Norton when it starts, go online update and then do a full scan.

Stinger may also detect it click here

You may have the W32.HLLW.Gaobot.FL worm. It shuts down anti virus and firewall software.
