internet security 2012 cd will not load up

i have 2 computers which have norton 360 but are expiring in a few days so  i have bought norton internet security 2012. On the first computer  i have uninstalled the norton 360 2011 and put the 2012 cd in the computer but it will not load up, i tried the 2012 cd on my other computer and it does load up so why does it not load up on the 1st computer?  was i wrong to uninstall the old norton before i started to unistall the new norton? 



Re: internet security 2012 cd will not load up

It is apparently possible for uninstalling N 360 V5 to disable CD drives and there is a fix for this but it's not one I'm really aware of.

I think there's a Microsof KB article with a fixit on but see what some of the more informed users here have to say.

If necessary we can give you a link to download an installation file for Norton Internet Security 2012 that will be more uptodate than the one on your CD anyway.

Hi c1aire6288,

Sometimes the removal of Norton 360 leaves the optical drive missing.  Please follow the link to the Microsoft Fix-it Tool provided in this Symantec KB article:

Cannot access CD/DVD after I install or uninstall Norton 360
