Probably not what you want to hear but many people would consider installing Norton360 to be an error in itself .

Are you logged in on an account with administrator rights ? I doubt it's an SP3 issue . Is Windows Firewall turned on ?

Hi viv911,

This is Mike from the Norton Authorized Support Team.

Although you say that you have already used the Norton Removal Tool, the error message you are receiving points to a corrupted installation of Norton 360. Please follow the steps below to properly remove, reinstall and scan with Norton 360

1. Click on the following link to download the Norton Removal Tool:

Norton Removal Tool and instructions

2. After you run the tool, restart your computer .Log in to Windows again and run the removal tool again. Restart your computer after it is finished running the second time as well.

3. Follow the instructions on the following page to re-download the latest installer for Norton 360.

Re-download your Norton product

4. After the installation is complete, launch Norton 360 version 2.x and perform a "Comprehensive Scan" to check for infections.
