Reinstall woes

  SDJ 15:25 24 Apr 2004

Just reinstalled winXP onto a new hdd, all software on no problems.
Somewhere along picked up blaster (got the RP shutdown screen etc) Windows Update would download and then hang on install.

Downloaded the MS removal tool / update had to run this in safe mode, all done.

Trying to install SP1a, wont do that hangs on install. Cant access comes up cannot find server.

Have NAV all updated, also have ZA all updated and working fine.

any suggestions would be most gratefully received

I still cant access Symantec's site.
Rather confusing as its a clean install and could access it the other day before I started over.

I did have to delete some entries in the host file after discovering that Liveupdate was causing a problem, all done according to Symantecs knowledgebase article which resolved the Liveupdate issue.
