SymUIAgent quit message--won't quit!

Since re-installing NAV for Mac on my iMac G5, running  OS X.5.8 (NOT Leopard), I have gotten a pop-up message that says  "The application SymUIAgent quit unexpectedly." I'm invited to ignore, report or relaunch. But no matter what I do, the pop-up returns within 20 seconds. I have uninstalled NAV--but the pop-up remains. I've reinstalled--the pop-up remains. Would really appreciate a way to get rid of this permanently! Thanks.

Please look in the folder ~/Library/Logs/CrashReporter. There should be some files beginning with SymUIAgent in there. Please attach one or two of those files here on the forums so we can take a look.

It might be an overinstall issue—several people have had problems with overinstalling on 10.5 for some reason.

Re: SymUIAgent quit message--won't quit!

Somehow your computer is missing an important file. This might have been an installer problem, or perhaps a file as trashed by mistake.

 

Please follow the instructions here:

http://www.symantec.com/norton/support/kb/web_view.jsp?wv_type=public_web&docurl=20080427024142EN&ln=en_US

Scroll down to the section "Download and run RemoveSymantecMacFiles". This will instruct you to use a script to remove all your Norton programs. You can then re-install and it should be fine.

 

Let me know if that works.

Ryan, many thanks. That seems to have taken care of the problem.
