Norton AntiVirus 5.xx quits at 97%

By waynejbishop ·
I have a WIN95 OSR2 workstation that NAV (5.xx) locks up at 97% of scanning for viruses. The user claims that this started after our IT department installed Outlook. Subsequent uninstalls and reinstalls of Norton AntiVirus provide the same results (we even tried NAV 2000, same problem). If we turn on scanning of program files only,it seems to work. Since by contract we are to provide Virus free software, this needs to work for all files. Symantec has been useless in helping solve this. Thanks in advance!

Norton won't do the trick for you because it also has it's flaws. Norton 2000 makes a worse mess than Norton 5 especially if your uysing it with Windows 2000. IT will destroy your Outlook files thinking they are contaminated and isolating them. Switch your virus protection to McAfee or Thunderbolt. Each have worked good for me.

This problem disappeared with the next release of Norton 5.04. Thanks any way!
