Error Code 8504, 104
-Norton 360 Premier v188.8.131.52 on Windows 7 SP1 32-bit
-Error code 8504, 104 and "Symantec System Framework" has stopped working when running a full reputation scan
-System tray icon disappears, but auto-protect still seems to function
-Cannot uninstall/reinstall because I have only 1 installation left on my account
Just yesterday, I removed a lot of bloatware/bundled stuff. I was running a full system reputation scan. All of a sudden, a Windows Error window says that the Symantec Service Framework has stopped and Windows must close it. The Norton System tray icon disappears. The auto-protect is still working, as I tested it with an EICAR test string, but I am unable to open Norton. I restart it and perform another reputation scan to see if it is the problem, and it happens again. I restart, but this time log into an admin account and perform the rep scan. No error this time, but a window saying N360 has encountered a new error, 8504, 104. It scans it, but is unable to find the error and directs me to a short troubleshooting page that tells me to turn off UAC and restart the computer. I restart the computer for the third time and the error seems to have stopped, as I am now able to run scans without it freezing. I check the security history and there was no entry of the error, but the EICAR test file was blocked when the system tray icon disappeared, so auto-protect was still working. I have read that people often times need to uninstall N360 and re-install it, but I have only 1 installation left my current N360. I upgraded from v4 to v5 a few months backand have used N360 since 2006 (I think). I am no longer encountering this error, but will it come back? What happened?
