Problems with Windows XP related to Norton Security System

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I have a serious problem with my windows XP. I had a virus in my windows named   “XP Antispyware 2010”, which I removed using Norton Security System which I newly installed.  But then I faced another problem.

After I removed it using Norton Security System, I started getting problems with my internet. When I click on the internet icon, its shows a popup asking me Open with application. I even tried to run it but it does nothing and again shows me similar messages.

Even if I try to click on other applications, I get the message Application Not Found. I even tried to delete it from my control panel but I just couldn’t do it because its inaccessibility.

I can’t operate the major functions of my Windows like opening Ms word directly, data recovery or even restoring because I get the same message. Even if I want to change anything directly in my laptop, I am unable to do that.

To get the help of Symantec, I called them. They helped me in deleting Norton Security System from my laptop but I still I’m facing the same problems. Hence I came to know that its problem with my Windows.

I would like to get your nice suggestions in resolving these problems. Please help me out. I would be grateful to you.

Norton antivirus is one of the worst out there. The reason behind this is that it has some weird algorithms that when it is about to clean a virus, it also deletes some very important registry files or etc. from windows causing instability in windows.

The message you are getting of Open With is because the registry that keeps the record of files and their types in which they are supposed to be opened is damaged.

You also getting the Application not found error because of this issue. All of the key files of your Operating System are being damaged by this software. The best solution is to reinstall your windows xp by backing up everything and then don't even think of installing Norton again. Try AVG or NOD32.
