Norton Antivrus and microsoft messenger

By jimmy ·
I have installed Norton Antivirus 2003 on my Win98 PC and it works fine. Howerv, as soon as i install MSN Messenger on my windows 98 pc i get the following error message periodically. Wether i am logged into MSN or not.
Norton Antivirus was unable to start the instant messenger scanner. It will be unable to scan instant messenger downloads for infections.
//I am using MSN version 5.0 & Norton AV 2003
I can click ok and the warning dialog box dissapears but it is really starting to annoy me. I have formatted the PC before because of this issue and thought that would cure the problem, obviously not. The thing is up until this week i had both running on the PC for months with no problems can anyone throw any suggestinos my way.

Thanks in advance

did you try installing msn messenger first and have it operational (no bugs) then install norton? or did you install norton then try installing msn? Also do you have "Go Back" installed?
