I would think that any "good" software would during the install process check for all incompatable issues.   I would also think any good company would not leave the customer in the dark.

Re: norton delux freezes up XP desktop - Norton chat Not helpfull!

XP is outdated and unsupported officially by Microsoft. Being that you are running XP your system specs are probably very old also. Did you fully uninstall Kaspersky before installing Norton Security? There are several things that could have caused this issue. 


Re: norton delux freezes up XP desktop - Norton chat Not helpfull!


You mentioned that you had run Kaspersky previously. Did you remove Kaspersky with their removal tool and reboot your computer? Then run the Norton removal tool and reboot. I am asking you to remove Norton so that you can get a clean install. After it is installed, please run Live Update until it says there are no more updates, reboot when asked to. You should end up with version
