Look in Control panel /add and remove programs for the notons WMI updates and if there unindtall it from there or go into c:\programs files and delete any folder called norton if there

thanks for the reply, but
no norton services are running,
and there is no WMI in add remove or anywhere else.
any other ideas?

There are several hundred registry-entries that come with norton, and according to some people a lot of them stay there after uninstalling the program. One of these entries probably causes the problem. Did you check the symantec-site for help?
