I'd suggest uninstalling with the Norton Removal Tool then reinstalling.
I've also alerted a Symantec Representative to your situation incase it doesn't solve your problem.

How did you perform the hard re-boot? Try holding down the power button (on/off switch of your computer) for at least 3 or 4 seconds until your screen turns off, and wait at least 30 seconds before turning your computer back on.
Or do you mean that you successfully performed a hard re-boot and your computer is still locked when you turn it back on?
