I have been using NAV for years. Hence, when I anticipated getting a new rig, I bought a copy of NAV 2005. What a mistake! Each time I boot my computer, the NAV "Auto-Enable" is turned off. I have been though all the fixes on symantec's web site pertaining to the error message, but nothing works.
After approximayely five plus minutes, the "Auto-Enable" works - a miracle.
According to the Symantec data base, there is a conflict between "Creative MediaSource Go" - software included with the Audigy 2 ZS card - & NAV 2005.
I have seen multiple other postings concern this issue. It would appear from that which I have read that Symantec cannot/will not fix the problem at this time.
$30 & my time WASTED - and several migraines.
I had the same EXACT problem as you when I installed my brand new, freshly purchased copy of Norton AntiVirus 2005. I, too, have a Creative SoundBlaster Audigy 2 ZS sound card and found that NAV '05 would disable it due to conflicts with Creatives Go program.
I found that in order to fix this problem, that going to Run -> msconfig -> Services tab and then clicking the Creative Go box to not allow it to run on start up fixes the problem, which it does. NAV '05 starts up everytime EN
abled and anytime I need the to access the soundcards settings, I just go through my Start Menu settings and find the specific feature I need, instead of loading up Go with all of the features at one time.
Besides, you really don't need Go to be on 100% of the time anyway. Unless you need fast access to the various volume and EQ controls at a moments notice, you can just go through the Start Menu in the Creative folder and find whatever feature it is you need to mess with instead of having to load up Go every time to get to it which in the end, shuts down NAV '05.

if you think you have problems, lol.
Thank you for your imput & the link to MPC Forum.
I had considered disabling "Go" in MSCONFIG. However, I did not feel that I should have to do so. Symantec/Norton should have released a FIX for NAV2005 such that their antivirus program "played well with others."
Unfortunately, they are a classic example of near sighted arrogance.
1. They acknowledge the problem. Yet, they refuse to fix same.
2. They are NO LONGER a "big fish in a little pond." There are several companies producing antivirus programs that may be just as good - if not better - as NAV2005.
I downloaded AVG Professional 7.0 - Trial Version, and it appears to be doing as good a job - if not better - than my previous copy of NAV2003.
Of note, during the installation of AVG Pro, it referenced a possible conflict with Roxio's Easy Media Creator V7.0. I have NOT encounter a problem.
I have 30 days on my "trial version" in order to make up my mind whether to spend the $33 for a TWO YEAR license for AVG Pro.
I can remember when Symantec charged $9.95/year. Now, it must be at least $20/year for the upgrades. Two years of Symantec upgrades are more expensive than the inital cost of AVG Pro - which includes a two year upgrade license.
