Due to a recent battle with malware (I am getting help on this in a different forum), I accidently did a system restore back to day 1, which means I have to reinstall most of my proggies, but evidently I still have lotsa registry leftovers.
I had probs trying to reinstall Firewall, which hung up while in the install process. I killed the procedure, and tried to reinstall, but it just sat there.
I went back to the control panel to the "remove software", but there was no reference to any of the Norton products whatsoever (I assume as part of the system restore since it didn't list most of my other proggies either). I then went and deleted all folders with reference to the Norton Producs including the common ones.
I then was able to reinstall Norton systemworks including antivirus. However it had two startup screens displaying:
1. NisProd could not be loaded. Code = 1002,1.
I looked this up at Norton and evidently his is due to obsolete Norton software.
2. "A necessary component for this functionis missing or damaged. "C:\Program Files\Norton Personal Firewall\ccEmlflt.dll" Code=1003,1
I looked up this one and it says it deals with email, but I am not using Norton in regards to email and as of yet, don't have Personal Firewall installed. However this "remnant" may be what is keeping me from reinstalling Firewall.
Realizing that Antivirus may interfere with some of the malware problem solving (Ewido is being used), I uninstalled Systemworks, and reinstalled using custom mode so that Antivirus was not installed.
1) I am still getting the reboot/startup screens concerning "NisProd" and "ccEmlflt.dll". I don't see them as being critical, but they sure are a nuicense.
2) I am still unable to install Personal Firewall whatsoever. I insert the disc and it gives me the startup screen. I request to install Firewall, the disc whirrs for about 5-10 secs and then just sits. Nada.
