    Problems installing Symantec Anti-Virus

    I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium (SP2) (32-bit) on a Toshiba Satellite
    A215. I'm trying to install Symantec Endpoint Protection (32-bit) that I
    downloaded from the ACERT website for home use. (Unmanaged, typical install).

    For some reason, it gets to: Removing System Registry Values in the install
    process, then says, "Rolling back action," and cancels the install. It says,
    "The wizard was interrupted before Symantec Endpoint Protection could be
    completely installed. Your system has not been modified. To complete
    installation at another time, please run setup again." I have restarted and
    tried again, same thing.

    Can somebody tell me what is going on and how to fix this?

    Thank you.

    Well, you tried to install it again, why not try downloading it again to
    see if corruption was the issue.

    why use symantec anything.

    they are known to have MAJOR problems with all their software on vista and W7.

    try MS Security Essentials instead.
    free and provides much more functionality.

    Symantec Endpoint is the single exception for all Norton products that does work and
    is used widely. Besides Endpoint is used with server based systems and is not for
    Home based use.

    Any other Norton product I recommend not to be installed or used because they cause
    issues and they are a virus by itself.
