NIS 06 errors
Posted on 2006-07-24
For a short period I had Norton Internet Security 2006 installed and working on my PC. Then, windows updates downloaded a new version of Windows Installer. Since then NIS has not worked.
I uninstalled NIS by using Add\Remove programs and also the SymNRT removal tool as recommended by the Symantec web site. However it will not remove one file located in the Symantec shared folder. (ccEmlPxy.dll). I tried to remove this file manually but get the following message ‘Cannot delete CCEmlPxy.dll : Data error (Cyclic redundancy check)’. This obviously causes a problem when trying to reinstall NIS as it can’t overwrite this file. I get the following error
‘1310 Error writing to file C:\Program files\Common Files\Symantec shared\ccEmlPxy.dll’
Symantec’s only suggestion is to remove and reinstall, which has clearly not helped.
Microsoft recommends re registering windows installer, which has not helped.
I have tried windows repair and a few applications from the web that fix redundancy errors. All have these have drawn a blank.
