When I try to install Norton 2005 on a ME system i get "setup requirements checked-setup has detected that a previous install or uninstall has been completed that requires a restart.  Please restart your computer and launch this starup again." When I reboot there is no difference in the message.  I ran rnav and tryed cleaning the registry.  HELP!!!
