    Take it out of the zip or rar folder that you have it in and extract it on your desktop, this will work

    I am currently looking for a copy of the Help/About screen for Norton SystemWorks 2003 or older. My computer came with a preloaded version on it (i think it was the 2003 version but it might have been earlier) but then crashed...I need proof of having the preloaded version and to do that i need the help/about screen from the 2003 version. If anyone is able to help me out here that would be absolutely wonderful!

    Yes I did get the emergency back up CDs but the Norton System Works was not on there. I think that it might have been a downloaded version from the internet. Really any help/about screen from 2003 or earlier would work.

    dont even bother with Norton, it is a resource hog, and it is not efficent enough. GO with Avast! Anti-virus, its not a hog, its simple to use, it talks to you when your infected (really it does), and the best part is that it is free. give it a try you will like it!

    dude, dont knock it unless you tried it. it had some good reviews. I been using norton for years, it was fine, but why pay for something when there is a perfectly good replacement. Im telling you, its good

    As I stated, I did try a couple of free Ant-Virus programs and guess what..I got viruses that these "FREE" programs didn't want anything to do with.

    no antivirus program is perfect tho some say theirs is. i've used most of the big & small antivirus programs in the past 14 years & i keep looking for better, so each to their own choices

    I am still in need of the help about screen from Norton System Works - version 2003 or earlier. If anyone can help me, I would really appreciate it. I need proof to show I had it.
