Norton Antivirus needs reboot to open

I maintain several Windows 7 pcs and have Norton Antivirus 2011 installed on them. Sometimes, but not always (of course), I cannot open Norton unless I reboot. Sometimes I even have to uninstall and reinstall NAV. Anyone had that problem?

3. What they have in common is that they also have Clean Slate on them. Of course Clean Slate is disabled when I try to run Norton.

Norton Antivirus 2009 incompabile with 7????
I was setting up Windows 7 RC7100 on my custom earlier today and ran into an issue with my trial ver. of Norton AV 2009. Norton installed fine, but after reboot, Norton would not load (at boot or by launching program manually). Win 7 said something about incompatibility... Any truth to that?
