I recently installed Corel Draw and it kept giving me error messages as soon as I clicked "Install", after several tries I "disabled" my Norton anti-virus by right clicking on the icon in the systray then left clicking disable. The installation went fine after that, evidently Norton was thinking it was a virus and would not let it install. I have run into this same problem when installing other programs, not just Corel Draw. It may be different in Win2X as I am using 98SE, but it works for me.

If you're going to install a program you don't need to close stuff that's running in the system tray. Just close any obvious open programs that you have running. Don't worry about the stuff next to the clock.

At moment I have the following icons on my systray:
1-Norton AV.
2-AVG antivirus.
3-modem.
4-volum control.

I just want to know how to close them all, because I want to install a new program. I use win2k. Thank you.
