Norton Security: Constant error 8504/100

Hi, I'm getting constant 8504/100 errors with Norton Security. I've downloaded the Norton Remove and Reinstall tool, followed the instructions uninstalled then reinstalled Norton Security twice now. Computer restarts as per instructions but Norton fails to open until an error reporting window turns up and just constantly says Error 8504/100. It's becoming an annoying cycle.

What do I do to fix this?

Hello Max. Are you performing a "remove only" then a reboot before reinstalling your product? And do you have "fast startup" enabled? If enabled disable the setting and reboot your system BEFORE performing another reinstall. Here is how.

Cheers

Hi

I was performing a remove and repair but now it's just going into remove mode and is asking me to reinstall. I've unchecked fast startup and then I'll try and reinstall.

Thanks

Use the advanced settings in the R&R tool. Do a REMOVAL only and reboot.

Hi

I've done so, it seems to be working but I'll wait on shutting down my computer for the day and then restarting tomorrow before any conclusions are made.

Re: Norton Security: Constant error 8504/100

I have a problem during installation. Cannot connect the server.

I followed all your proposals and even that gives no solution.

Why don't you fix the problem so it doesn't happen in the first place? And in the meantime, add all these extra steps described above to the instructions. I'm getting sick of having to remove and re-install Norton. Seems like I have to do this once every month or so.
