i tried to start up my computer after installing norton antivirus and as soon as it rebooted a message from the norton program came up saying that i had an infected file that should be qurantined because it couldn't be repaired. i did that, but then it became impossible for me to run ANY programs in windows. all the programs in my task tray gave me error messages saying they couldn't pop up. i cant even access any programs in safe mode. then, i got a message saying that the file SYndll.exe was missing, and that runDLL.exe needed it to run windows. one time when i restarted my comp another norton message came up saying that ANOTHER file needed to be quarantined. the file was one that i downloaded previously, so im assuming that it could be a virus, however im not sure. can someone please answer this problem??

p.s. i know that the easiest way would probably be to reinstall the windows ME system, but I DON'T want to lose my files, so please i need a good answer!!!

You're welcome, but did Norton ever tell you what virus it found? What files are in quarantine? I'm just curious what virus it was.
