Also did you try the norton uninstall tool make sure your computer is clean download Malwarebytes Antimalware and or SuperAntiSpyware and run a scan and see what you may have learking because 9 times out of 10 what i see in my shop is infected computers and with infected computers there is always all kinds of issues like what you describe

If all the above fails, resort to this,
start - run - cmd - type sfc /scannow (if doesnt allow, run command prompt as admin) Once complete, restart machine and check.

I fixed my IE crash problem by the above command.
