I don't know if anyone can help me, but my Norton Utillities wipe function has decided to stop working. I always run it from the CD. It worked fine for ages, but now when I try to run it, it goes through the process of checking the disks integrity, and then starts to wipe the slack space. When it gets around 22 to 25% of this function, it suddenly starts over. It does this quite a few times before saying wipe failed due to disk being in use by another program. But all are closed down. I think it something to do with either MRU Blaster or ID Blaster as it ran before I loaded these on recently. Can anyone tell me how to exit these programs (without removing them) so I can run Norton? Or do you know what else it might be, I also have Spyware Guard and Spyware Blaster. Thanks, Georgy.
