    When I go to shut off my pc it will close the NAV and then I will get, program not resonding- end now or cancel. No matter what I do it wont shutdown. It goes into standbye fine. I ran NAV and AVG and they come up with no viruses so it must be something else. BTW I am running win xp. Any clue on what I can do to fix it?

    y do u have two anti-virus programs running... thats probably whats causing the shutdown issue...

    And norton is a very good program... been using it for a long time and never had a problem/issue with it so far... (running on 300+ computers at work)

    Remove asap == :rolleyes:

    I have your answer :)

    In NAV there is a setting like "Check removable disks for boot-sector viruses at shutdown."

    Whether or not you have a floppy drive Norton will attempt to check (and hold the system up for 5-10 seconds). Uncheck this option and you'll be fine. It is somewhere in advanced settings.

    Also - Norton IS a good anti-virus program.

    As I wrote above, Symantec Corporate is fine. I personally use CA's EZAntivirus. Tiny footprint and it doesn't slow down your system. It doesn't make 50,000,000 registry entries that never go away when you uninstall.
