I have Norton Internet Security 2008 on my laptop. It automatically told me to download a file at start up. I followed Norton's instructions and downloaded the file, and ran the program it told me to. The files name was SymFix_1002-1.exe. I then restarted the computer as the instructions read. The same set of instructions came up after my computer restarted and told me to dowload the same file again...

Norton Internet Security will not configure

When I run a Live Update the Norton Internet Security updates fail to update because the instll script tried to write on to a file that was in use...

Any advice on this situation would be greatly appreciated

All the best,

Thanks for the advice I will try there... though I will still be looking for any help I can get.

I went through the steps that were suggested.... and they didn't work.... so I clicked on What if this doesn't work.... it told me to download a removal tool and reinstall NIS 2008... Thanks for your helpI'll repost on here how it goes... :)
