Most versions of the Norton antivirus programs tend to cause such problems,
although seldom that fast. So do most versions of the McAfee antivirus
program and a recent version from Trend.
It often helps to delete the email account under Windows Mail and then
create it again, but the only way to stop those versions from causing
problems in the future is to uninstall them, not just disable them.
You may want a replacement antivirus program. For home use, I
recommend either avast! or AVG, either one with a custom install that
tells it to leave out the part that scans email. For business use, I've
seen NOD32 recommended.
