Norton 360 v5 won't turn on
My Action Center is consistently giving me two Security warnings: "Spyware and unwanted software protection: Windows Defender and Norton 360 both report that they are turned off" and "Virus Protection: Norton 360 reports that it is turned off". I'm given the chance to turn Norton 360 under both warnings, which leads to Windows asking permission to run "C:\Program Files (x86)\Norton 360\Engine\188.8.131.52\WSCStub.exe". Clicking "yes" causes cursor arrow to "think" for 1 second but Norton 360 doesn't turn on.
I've tried rebooting without success. I've downloaded Norton's updated definitions up through today. I cannot open the user interface from the shortcut on my desktop. I cannot find any Norton or Symantec programs running in my task manager. It seems my updated version of Norton 360 is v184.108.40.206 (which is inconsistent with the file for the .exe above).
Win 7 Professional, 64bit, SP1 and updates current
This is licensed for three computers- the other two computers are running fine; this is my only Windows 7 usage, though.
This is a new computer. Trial AV software was uninstalled before installing N360 v5.0 from disc (which is across the ocean with my parents).
