you should be able to run norton during the bootup process of windows. put the cd-rom in the drive an bootup your computer, then follow the on screen instructions.

You have a "smart" virus that blocks the Norton install. Try another virus checker, instead: Grisoft AVG--it's free.

Norton is effective, but it is the worst resource hog out there. Also, the virus may not "know" to block AVG.

Before you install the virus checker, go to the Task Manager, kill the offending process, clear out the Temporary Internet Files folder, and delete the Windows\Temp directory (or at least as many files as possible). These two sets of directories are where these virus executables tend to hide. Once these steps have been done, install the virus checker.
