    Entry Point Not Found


    Click image for larger version

    Hi everyone,

    I keep getting this error message when I boot up occasionally. It says-

    "The procedure entry point_crtCreateSymbolicLinkW could not be located in the dynamic link library C:\Program Files(x86)\Norton Security\Engine64\22.7.1.32\MSVCP110.dll"

    The image shows what I see on my desktop immediately after I enter my password.

    Does anyone have any idea how I could go about this? It doesn't seem to affect the general running of my PC.


    Thanks in advance.

    Are you paying for Norton? If not I would download the Norton Removal Tool and get rid of it. If you must use an AV shield get something that doesn't hose your machine. Every time I bought a desktop PC with Windows preloaded I spent the first 2 hours after set up getting rid of Norton. It is a major pita.
