Norton 360 won't let me install a program
Good afternoon all,
I am attempting to install an online backup solution and Norton is giving me a problem. The Os is vista premium; it was doing the same thing on a windows 7 install of the same software but I got that to work after completly stopping all of the norton services running the install and turning norton back on.
On the Vista machine, when I attempt to install the software everything goes smooth until I attmept to login. The backup software registers a service on the machine in order to run in the background/startup and Norton is preventing the software from editing the registry (yes I understand that in order to prevent malware from screwing the registry up this is supposed to happen). I first tried disabling UAC to no avail. I have tried adding the program to the "safe list" as well as opening the ports in norton firewall neccesary for communicating with the backup software datacenter. Norton has decided that even with admin rights (I miss you root) I can not install the software. I disabled all of the Norton/Symantec services (this worked on the 7 machine) in theory disabling the norton security from preventing me from making edits to the registry; however the software is still being blocked from install. Does anyone know the list of services in case I am missing one? I need to kill Norton in order to perform this install.
