It's because you installed Norton:

According to Microsoft technical support, these errors are linked to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\VirtualDeviceDrivers

This key has an VDD binary value that points to:

C:\progra~1\symantec\S32Evnt1.dll

If the VDD binary value is removed, then the 16-bit subsystem returns to normal and is functional.

To solve this problem, you need to remove the VDD binary value first, and then update the Symevent files.

You need to change the registry key as mentioned in my previous post. Then google for the latest symevent files/update.
