Verify integrity of system files
There are a large number of system files on Windows 7 and some of them are integrated with Norton AntiVirus installed on the system. If these system files are damaged, then problems will come up with the use of the program. All Windows 7 users who have issues with Norton AntiVirus are suggested to check the integrity of system files on the system using the 'sfc/scannow' command if the system files are found to be damaged.
