Trouble installing Norton Internet security 2005

  pmcquarrie 23:04 03 Oct 2005

I recently bought Norton internet security 2005 but had difficulty removing the trial version of McAfee software on my PC. I removed all McAfee programs but McAfee security centre did not appear on the list so i couldn't remove it. I was told to to remove it manually from the list of startup programs and did so.

When I installed The Norton security software an error message appeared. The help link told me to delete audit in progress from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\microsoft\windows\cureentversion but this does not appear on the list.

I am also unable to access the internet using internet explorer. I am prompted to select setting but only given one choice...use custom settings. When i do this the prompt reappears continuously and internet explorer cannot find the server.

Please help.

The Norton instruction to delete audit in progress from:"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\microsoft\windows\cureentversion"
refers to an entry in the Windows Registry. Start-Run - type REGEDIT and press enter. navigate to the correct folder in the left-hand pane.
