Removed Seciurity Center 2004 but cannot load Virus Scan 2006. After inserting the CD, I get a button on the toolbar but cannot expand it to a window. It allows me the two options of Moving (which does not work) and close (which does work). I'm running XP Pro w/SP2. Disabled CounterSpy just in case it would conflict with the installation. Any ideas as to how to get this booger up and running?
