My PC locked up about 5 times yesterday, and now about 4-5 times again today. In the event viewer, this same error shows up at the time of every crash:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: Service Control Manager
Event Category: None
Event ID: 7000
Time: 4:33:05 PM
The Norton AntiVirus Auto Protect Service service failed to start due to the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified.
Yesterday I uninstalled Norton completely, and even followed the instructinos as shown here to manually remove it from the registry, to try to rid my PC of it completely. But even after all that, with it gone, I'm still getting this same error message in the event viewer at the time of every crash. Wierd.
