I cannot do the registery cleanup. Norton 360 ver.4 says Unable to take required system restore Point, error: 126.
Anyone know what this means, and what I can do?

Do you have any particlular reason to do a registry cleanup? Some malfunction that you know it can fix?
If not in my opinion, and experience, it can cause more problems .......

I created a resore point. Norton did it again. error 126.
More than enough disk space. 4 internal drives.
I think I have to re-install Norton. Security Center is not recognzing it or the firewall. This started three days ago when I installed Norton Ghost and other programs. Maybe it is the auto-update for both products at the same time.
No malware. Norton 360 scanned and Microsofts malicious tool on full scans.
This is going to be the second time I'v done this.
Any other suggestions?

Have done registery clean-ups a lot for the past 4 years. It always finds something from installers (Adobe's for example), removed programs (when using add/remove programs), or failed installs.

Re-install of Norton 360 not fix this issue.

I tried the solution, and it did not work.
When the machine re-booted Norton did not start and issued two errors, e.g. 8504, & 104. In that the C:\Windows\System32\wbem\repository was not permanently deleted , they were restored, and the machine is back to where it stated.
Any addition information would be appreciated.

Repository file will be recreated on reboot and it is normal. Did you try the solution for the "8504,104" error? If not, try that:
