You dont want to even think about low level formats, your CHS are aligned and it should only be done under factory controlled conditions, you will destroy your drive if you use a LLF utility.

Many applications that diagnose a disk at a low level, 'lock' it whilst they fiddle, if it is interupted and say buggers up your FAT or partition table, it may well remain locked and even if accessed things would be a bit murky.
Try removing Norton first, it helps do a lot of things, but causes plenty of complications too. Removing it may cure your problem, if not try using fdisk/mbr to restore the boot record.
