      Have you tried looking for that on nortons website? Can you boot to safe mode and remove the software and have it boot ok?

        Clean boot
        When a computer is clean booted, the computer is started without loading other programs or parts of programs, except the main portion of the operating system. Clean booting a computer is used as a troubleshooting technique to minimize conflicts with other programs and may prevent the problem that you are encountering.
        Causes of installation problems
        Most installation problems are due to one of the following issues:
        The computer has a virus or a virus was recently removed from thecomputer. Because viruses typically corrupt files, it may be necessary to reinstall programs or to run additional utilities even though the virus was removed from the computer.
        Other programs are in memory during the installation. Having other programs running while you perform an installation can interfere with the installation or corrupt one or more of the program files.
        The computer uses a non-default configuration of Windows. For instance, if you restrict access to particular folders or disable the automatic creation of short file names, some installations cannot save the files that they need to save to the hard disk.
        Product(s): Norton Internet Security 2003 6.0, Norton Internet Security Professional 2003, Norton Personal Firewall 2003 6.0

      Hey,

      If you can get in in Safe Mode check the following.

      Right click on My Computer
      Click Properties.
      Click the Advanced tab.
      Click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
      Under System Failure make sure there is not a check next to Automatically Reboot.

      Thanx

      My first suggestion is to do what Diamond say to do. Uncheked the option to restart the computer when a problem occurs, Then after you do that checked the event log to see if it tells you which service is failing if it doesn’t tell you at least disable any norton service one at a time.
