I have a client who uninstalled their Norton Internet Security 2003 and then tried to re-install it.  Upon trying to re-install, a message appears saying that the installation could not continue because a previous unistallation was not completed - it says to restart the computer to complete the uninstallation.  Well, when I restart, and try again, I get the same message.  I tried to load NAV 2003 and that loaded fine, but cannot reload NIS 2003????

Anyone experienced this before.  I tried to search the site, but could not find a similar problem.

Thanks in advance.

Once it's uninstalled I'd put it back in box and put the box on the top shelf of the closet and get a hardware firewall.
