secondly.. I had Norton Antivrus installed with vista with down loads for 3 computers
on changing back to XP I tried to reinstall it again after clearing all traces of the original installation As a result I cannot install Norton or any other malware or spyware detecting programme. They all download but fail on the end installation path with Norton I get a Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library Box informing me of a runtime error on Program
C:\Docs & settings\HP-owner\local settings\Temp stating that the application has requested Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way
I have also had error codes 0x80070643 when I tried to install Microsoft Security Essentials
and error codes 0x80246008 which has led me to the Microsoft support pages to verify if BITS is configured correctly. I have gone through this process and still get the error codes of 2147467259 or 2147022976.
It then goes on to get very complicated delving into the rewriting of programmes etc
Does anyone have an answer to a headless chicken or should I give up and go back to fishing!!
PS even the Norton eggheads have had a go and failed.Edit: Moved topic from XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal
