I suspect the following describes a graphic card compatibility problem, but am not sure. Any ideas?

I've installed pcAnywhere 10.5. When finished with the installation I was asked to restart, and so I did. When I restarted Windows it went into an endless loop - triggers its check disk mechanism during startup (as if it wasn't shut down properly), and then restarts - just to trigger the check disk again & restart - and so on and so forth... (at this stage I can only load to safe mode to uninstall pcAnywhere).

I found out that if I install pcAnywhere on safe mode Windows loads properly. But when Norton Antivirus 2002 automatically updated itself for the first time (and pcAnywhere too) I got the same loop again. Also tried to upgrade my display drivers prior to installation but it didn't help either.

I need pcAnywhere on this computer, and wouldn't like to disable the LiveUpdate mechanism.
