Specs: Windows XP
Yesterday when i logged on there was a little box in the middle of my screen from Norton. It said something, i dont remember what, but it would need to reboot. there was a yes and no choice. i clicked yes. My system rebooted and it came back in safe mode. i selected return to standard and it scrolled through about a page and a half of lines or comperter file info, then flashed a blue screen with writing on it but too fast to read it, then the windows screen appears and you think its going to open fine...then it flashes back to the safe mode. All choices on that safe mode screen bring the same results. you can get into bios but nothing there helps. also you can hit f8 and get what looks like the real safe mode screen...but none of those do anything but start the cycle all over again. I have put the OS disc in the CD but the computer cant or wont read it. Anyone having this prob, heard of it, or have a sulutioon?

Same thing happen to me , I installed camfrog last night (this site is where you chat on cam). and it installed norton on my computer. I use kaspersky internet security. i rebooted my computer this morning and my regular load looks like safe mode, and i can't do anything about it . i've rebooted several times . whats so shocking norton was installed on my computer. i never clicked anything to install it. I went to add and remove . and removed norton and camfrog. My screen is still a mile long in safe mode.

part 2.

Ive uninstalled my ati catalyst video driver. and i cant re install the driver because im missing an INF file.(

So whatever installed norton on my computer. corrupted the files to my video card. so now im saving and backing up all my files and starting windows os all over again.

Im sure camfrog installed norton on my comptuer as well as the ask toolbar. Still curious how norton installed itself though.
