For a few weeks now, I've been getting error msgs for various tasks from other software on PC that stated the "Symantec Shared" folder was corrupted. I could not open the folder and got "unaccessable" and "corrupt" messages again. A Norton Tech cleaned my system using Norton Removal Tool (NRT), and then tried reinstalling Norton Internet Security 2011. It would not install.
I've been helped in the last 5 days by 3 different Norton Techs, and each time after using NRT and Norton Power Erasure (NPE), NIS will still not install.
Last night I was transfered over to a Manager Tech. He went through my registry and deleted all Symantec registries. After reboot....my OS would not load. I had to put the install disc in and "repair" it!!!
I have run NRT and NPE numerous times and have tried NIS 2011 re-install numerous times (even disconnecting internet connection)....and still NO INSTALL!!!
What is going on?!? Why won't it install? I am still waiting for another Tech to contact me to try again...
Norton Forum Administrator suggested I post msg on this forum for advice and possibility of deep rooted malware infection on my PC. Does this sound like a malware infection?
I use Spyware Doctor, Adaware, and until recently Advanced System Care to protect ontop of Norton.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
OS - Windows Vista SP2
