Cannot Install Norton
I've had issues with windows updates, but did not download the current problematic one. This started happening last week when I was unable to change anything regarding updates, everything was greyed out. I noticed the issue while gaming, my gaming slowed to a crawl on my ASUS ROG. When I opened up task manager I saw the relentless Microsoft update working in the background. I set it to metered connection, tried disabling it, nothing works. Microsoft has invaded my laptop. I am running Windows 10 Home. I attempted a restore yesterday, which failed. Then I noticed my Norton was not working.
I could not disable Windows Defender, as I thought maybe it was blocking the Norton install. I received the error 8504, 101. I attempted every solution I could find about that error. I have run power eraser and it states the laptop is clean. I am unable to use safe mode with networking, it will not connect to the internet. I have tried four times to download and reinstall, it keeps coming back with an error and gets stuck in the sending to Norton loop. My subscription is current. I cannot find any suggestions to help me. I have tried to re-download from the power eraser tool, it won't install. I have run the Norton removal tool after every failed install, and it won't even install from the removal tool. I have tried to download the basic, and also twice actually logged in to my account. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
