You need to take this up with Symantec

Most things with Norton are cleared by removing it and re-installing but this is unlikely to work here as NIS thinks there is something wrong with the product key

Reinstalling your Symantec program after a failed installation or after you see error messages

Situation:
This document describes how to reinstall your Symantec program after you have removed the program from your computer because there was a problem with the original installation.

Solution:
Find your version of Windows in the list below, and follow the instructions.

Click the icon to the left of each section to either expand ( ) or collapse ( ) the section. (If you cannot expand a section, then read the document Cannot expand sections in a Symantec Knowledge Base document.)



Windows XP

Windows XP
Do the following procedures in the order listed to reinstall your Symantec product.

Delete all temporary files

Delete all temporary files
Temporary files and folders are created when you install programs and during normal Windows operation. All Symantec products use the temporary folder during the installation process. Too many files in the Windows Temporary folder can cause the installation to fail.
The following steps show you how to delete these files and folders. In most cases, it is safe for you to do this because they are no longer needed. However, if you are not sure, instead of deleting the files and folders when you are instructed, move them to a different folder or to external media, such as a CD.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Note: These steps assume that your computer is using the default Windows temporary folder setting. If you have changed the temporary folder location to C:, then follow the steps in the section "To verify the Temp variable" in the document Deleting Windows temporary files and then continue with these instructions.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


To delete temporary files and folders
Exit all programs. If you are reading this on the Web, you may leave your Web browser open.
On the Windows taskbar, click Start > Run
Type the following:

%temp%

Click OK. The Temp folder for the currently logged-on user opens in Windows Explorer.
On the Edit menu, click Select All.
Press Delete.
Click Yes if you are asked to confirm the deletion.
Go on to the next section
Install LiveUpdate

Install LiveUpdate
After deleting all temporary files, install LiveUpdate. To install LiveUpdate, read the document How to download the newest version of LiveUpdate, and then return to this document and go on to the next section, "Start the computer with no programs loading on startup."
Start the computer with no programs loading on startup

Start the computer with no programs loading on startup

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Note: Starting the computer with no programs loading on startup (clean boot mode) puts the computer into a diagnostic mode of Windows. This may cause your display to appear differently then what you are used to. After the reinstall is complete, follow the steps in the section "To restore Windows to Normal mode" to return the computer to Normal mode.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To start the computer with no programs loading on startup
Click Start > Run.
In the Open box, type msconfig and click OK.
Click Selective Startup.
Under Selective Startup, uncheck all entries except the following:
Load System Services
Use Original BOOT.INI




Click Apply > OK.
When you are prompted to restart the computer, click Yes.
Go on to the next section.
