Norton 360 icon has red cross in it. I presume it has disabled somehow. What does this mean?

I have to say I did unstall Norton before doing this and I presume now I cannot install it again and if I do will have to pay for it again
Thanks for the reply.
Could you please post the full log file. Just use the add attachments under the orange post button and attach the .txt file.
You can install Norton gain and you will not have to pay for your software again if you have a current valid subscription.
No, you do not have pay for Norton 360/buy it again in order to reinstall it.
However, since you found infections on your computer, I would like you to run a SysProt scan to make sure there is no further malware on your machine. Instructions coming.
EDIT: As mdurner has said above (sorry, mdturner, only saw your post now, lol ;-)) ), please attach the MBAM log to your post. Thank you.Afterwards, please run a SysProt log for us, from the link below, so that we can check your system for rootkit activity. You will need to disable Norton auto-protect while you run the scan.
http://sites.google.com/site/sysprotantirootkit/Once it is downloaded to your desktop, right click on the SysProt icon, go to properties, and click unblock and apply.
Choose log, check all the boxes except show hidden objects only and scan.You will be able to post the log here using the "add attachments" link just below the orange post button.Do nothing to try to clean this until you have sent back the log and we respond to you on what to do next.

The different mirror websites listed are the websites which host SysProt. You can download SysProt from any of these websites, e.g. from Softpedia, or you can download it from underneath the "Attachments" section by clicking on "Download".

mdturner has looked at your SysProt log and has pronounced it clean. However, you are running AVG, and before you can reinstall Norton 360, you will have to remove AVG.
Please uninstall AVG and use the AVG removal tool to get rid of AVG leftovers, otherwise they might interfere with the reinstallation of Norton 360.
Download and save the AVG removal tool to your computer from over here:
Download and save the Norton Removal Tool to your computer from this link:
Download and save the appropriate version (either Standard or Premier, depending on your version of Norton 360) of Norton 360 to your computer:
Norton 360 Standard Edition
Norton 360 Premier Edition
1) First, remove AVG.
2) Remove Norton 360; please run the Norton Removal Tool in Safe Mode for this. When booting your computer, tap the F8 key repeatedly, then, once Windows has loaded, run the Norton Removal Tool. Please run the tool twice, rebooting after each run.
3) After rebooting, double-click on the icon of the Norton 360 installation package and install it. Run LiveUpdate until there are no more updates remaining to be downloaded.
Please tell us how this goes. Thanks :-)
Just wanted to say many thanks for your help. Really don't know why it did that.
Glad we were able to help you :-)
