    I have installed a Norton Internet Security 2007 in my computer but the
    malware protection states that windows did not find antivirus software on
    this computer. In addition, it stated that windows defender is turned off
    when it is on. I feel that this has affected the Network and Sharing center
    as it stated ' server execution failed' and I am on the internet. Can anyone
    please help?

  2. Maybe your malware protection comes with a sense of quality ;-)

    I can't be really sure whether what I'm saying is correct or not, but
    personally I'm inclined to think that perhaps Windows did not recognize
    Norton, or your version of Norton anyway. However, this is pretty weird
    because I believe that Microsoft made it so that Windows could recognize most
    "mainstream" protection softwares, and Norton is pretty well known.

    As for Windows Defender, have you tried turning it off and on again? Unlike
    firewalls, turning an anti-spyware program off for a jiffy wouldn't
    jeopardize your computer's safety. But if you don't want to take the chance,
    you could get anther anti-spyware program, and then play around with Windows
    Defender while the other program is doing it's job.

    As for your Network and Sharing Center problem, I did a google search and
    this is what I found:
    Try following the steps in the post by dpnewkirk. :)

    Good luck!

    I had the same issue with NIS 09. I uninstalled and reinstalled a
    couple of time and it worked fine.
