Antivirus Questions - Norton Antivirus file. Symevent?

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Nicole Kidman, Aug 16, 2003.

  1. Hello,
    I recently installed Norton antivirus and it seems it's unable to activate
    the startup and auto protect function. Every time I startup I get the error
    "Unable to start symevent" error. Also I recently ran windows update and
    Norton antivirus made me delete this file:


    The XMLDSO.CAB file. Was this a mistake by Norton Anitvirus or has the
    virus infected windows update?

    Thanks for any help you guys can give.
    Much Thanks!

    Norton AntiVirus 2000 Detects WM.Niceday Macro Virus When
    Installing Microsoft Virtual Machine;en-us;244428

    When you install the Microsoft Virtual Machine (VM), you may receive an
    alert from Norton AntiVirus 2000 about a "WM.Niceday Macro Virus" but
    "with a different, harmless payload macro" in the file (the XML
    classes that are included in the Microsoft VM).

    Norton AntiVirus 2000's Auto-Protect may detect the WM.NiceDay virus
    when you install a Windows Update or extract .cab files.
