    Sounds like a spyware/virus has attacked your anti-virus.
    Good luck at getting that re-installed and working without re-installing your OS.

    There are instructions online some where for removing NAV manually. Its a big pain in the ass tho, there are over 1000 registery entries.

    Buck up and switch to Symantic corporate
    Machining, Fabricating, Welding etc.

    GIANT was bought by Microsoft. The Microsoft Spyware Removal Tool Beta is available for download here:

    Also, Microsoft is planning on rolling out their anti virus software on January 17th and will be distrubuted via Windows Update.

    You're right its not true. The antivirus software is being rolled out on January 11th, 2005

    They say its just supposed to "assist" 3rd party virus software, but McAfee and Symantec stocks both fell yesterday as a result of the announcement.

    Ah, thats not really a full product though. Updating definitions once a month only is almost laughable. Not going to do anyone any good.
