trouble installing Norton internet security 2005

  pmcquarrie 23:11 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.

What is your operating system?

XP. I decided to scrap Norton and use free software recommended in this forum: zonealarm, avast4, spybot,a2.

All seemed well until my modem couldn't connect and an insufficient bandwidth message kept appearing. Could this be related to my new software?

I performed a system restore to a date before i installed the above software.
