If you do a forum search for that error code you should find the answer to how to fix it.  The search box is located at the bottom of the page.

As I expected, it was related to norton.
 
Disable the worm check made no differance but the link to the SymantecTM AutoFix Tool was extremely helpful and in the end, took care of the trouble
 
Thanks for the help and input. It is nice that there enough fellow humans that care enough to read through and offer help as much as they do.
 
Thanks!

I'm guessing that Norton updated itself, thereby reintroducing the same problem.  Norton is evil.  McAfee is evil.  Wouldn't touch either of them!
