NIS 2005 - AntiVirus Error

Hi,
I've just installed Norton Internet Security 2005 today, and my first impression was that it was great. However, after turning on my computer for the first time after the full installation (after the initiall restart to install NIS properly) as soon as Windows (I'm running XP SP2) started, I was confronted with an error message saying "Norton AntiVirus 2005 does not have the Repair feature installed, please uninstall then reinstall." I have now done that, and still I get the error message, so please help. I don't really want to pay £18 for Symantec Support, so please, please help.

The first thing to try is un-install again, search your hard drive for Symantec files and delete all of them. If you do not delete them there are files that have the settings for NIS in them. These files are not removed when you un-install NIS. When you re-install the incorrect settings are still there.

One you have deleted all the files re-boot and re-install and then run liveupdate.

NIS has an integrated firewall. Turn off XP's firewall (Start > Control Panel > Security Centre) before you try to reinstall.
