For the last year, we had Norton Internet Security 2005 on our PC (Windows XP Service Pack 2). No problems. About three weeks ago, we purchased Norton Internet Security 2006 (NIS 2006) on CD-ROM and installed it on our PC. No problems. A few days ago, NIS 2006 would no longer work. The only thing that might of contributed to this was a zip file that was opened from a piece of junk mail that contained a simple image (NTIMAGE.GIF). NIS didn't see it as a threat and as far as we can tell, everything on the PC is working fine except NIS 2006. I tried to uninstall NIS 2006 with "Add or Remove Programs" in the Control Panel and was unsuccessful. Then I went to Symantec's web site, downloaded SymNRT, SYMMISICLEANUP, and MSIFIX which seemed to have removed NIS 2006. I then attempted to reinstall NIS 2006 from the CD. After several minutes of the files being transfered from the CD to the hard drive, a message stated that the install was successful, to remove the CD and to reboot the computer for the changes to take effect. So far, so good. PC reboots and the Norton Configuration Wizard automatically starts for the final steps. I clicked the next button after the introduction window for the activation of NIS. At this point, I have problems. The wizard locks up and does not allow me to finish / activate NIS 2006. I have tried several times to uninstall and install NIS 2006, and the result is always the same. I'm not sure if there is some sort of corruption within the Windows Registry or some other quirky bug with NIS, but I'm at the end of my rope with this software that has otherwise been trouble free until this point. Any thoughts?
