Awhile back Lotta bailed me out of a jam by pointing me towards the
following link which found a very much unwanted parasite in my
computer that was causing my problems. You might want to go there
and see what it tells you about your machine. Here's the link.
And if that sheds no light, you might try downloading and installing
the free Spybot program that also roots out the nasties we don't
want. The link to that is
- Was it NORTON or was it an EMAIL, or windows messaging box?
Normally IF Norton has detected an attempt, it has already taken care of it.

fed "Norton tampered" to Google and this page came up.
It doesn't describe your problem exactly but it's close and it links to
some kind of online tool, Automated Support Assistant, that scans your
computer. Maybe that thing can find out what's wrong?
- I thought Id update you on this weird issue.
First, I use AdAware, SpyBot and the Dox web page and all came up normal.
So, I figured I had nothing to do and ran the live update for Norton, then
reapplied SP1 for XP Pro.
lo and behold, Norton no longer stated I was tampered. Sounded so personal,
So thanks all for the links and ideas. In this weird world, you never know
when someone is going to mess with your stuff. Particularly when one is
stupid enough not to have loaded her firewall at the last system rebuild....
