Recent installation of Norton Antivirus 2008 requires repeated activation

I installed Norton Antivirus 2008 and have activated the software.  Now periodically, the Protection Center notifies me the Virus Protection is at risk and activation is required.  I click connect to Fix Now. The activation fails, "an error has occured during your activationcted, click next... opens Norton antivirus Help and Support window,  and opens up a window with nowhere to go.  I can access the Internet and Norton/Symantec's site successfully.  No available software updates.

Tried simply uninstalling the WHOLE app, reboot, and reinstall it?

With norton, don't just uninstall.  Download Symnrt and run that after the uninstall.  Once that is done, then you can reinstall.

***Warning this will remove all Norton and Symantec software from your PC
