Error 3048,3

Whilst using Chrome to search for a book, I was directed to Amazon I always check that the link is Norton verified with the green tick.  Whilst looking at this book on Amazon, error 3048,3 appeared but no fix was found.  I decided to bring up Norton to do a scan but Norton had disappeared from my start up menu.  I have saved the Norton bootable recover tool to a flash drive and restarted the computer  with flash drive inserted as directed.  Apparently the computer should then start in bootable recovery but it does not.  This is the first time I have had this problem so I am floundering a little.  The Norton icon is still on the desktop and on clicking on it, it tells me that all definitions are up to date.

Advice please.

Thank you for responding Norton Fighter, I had already completed the first part of your advice, but ran it again, switched off , on again and lo & behold the Norton icon is back in my start up menu. :-)

Just as a matter of interest what is error 3048,3?  And would it have occurred regardless of the site I was on?

These 3048 3 error messages can appear during program installation, while a Symantec-related software program (eg. Norton AntiVirus) is running, during Windows startup or shutdown, or even during the installation of the Windows operating system. Keeping track of when and where your 3048 3 error occurs is a critical piece of information in troubleshooting the problem.

The immediate cause of Norton Error 3048 3 error is a failure to correctly run one of its normal operations by a system or application component.

The above is a generic description of the error and as you can see numerous different events could trigger the error, so chances are it is something that occurred with Norton and may or may not been attributed to the specific site.

Sorry I do not have more specific info.
