Default Norton Antivirus 2005 problems (system scan)

I have been trying to do a full system scan with Norton but there is some file on my OS drive that prevents it from finishing the scan. Anyone have this trouble? I had the same problem a few weeks ago which it drove me mad to the point where i reinstalled Norton Internet security to death, killed my OS, reformatted and just reinstalled everything from scratch. Then i did a scan and everything worked fine, now its happening again. G0d i hate norton, i really really do.

Default Re: Norton Antivirus 2005 problems (system scan)

if u go into norton settings and make sure that you DONT scan compressed files, then everything works fine. This is located in 2 areas: main page and under manual search. This is the norton temp solution, but it works. Whenever i get a new file i mauanlly search it with norton. Like that all my compressd files have already been scanned and there are no worries.
