Hello tuppie


Welcome to the Norton Community Forum


Does your son's laptop have sp 2 installed? Is there a preinstalled security program on that laptop? Are there any other real time security programs installed? Are you running the install program as Admin? Could that laptop have any malware that could be preventing the install process? Thanks.
