PC World again...

I have tried to put in my CD's to restore my PC (following its demise last week).

I initially tried the ones that came with the system and then ordered some more (for an extra £5), to no avail.

I get the follow 3 error messages when I try the system restore.

1.) single user version cannot do multiple uploads
(then press OKAY)

2.) cannot open ghosterr.txt
(then press OKAY)

3.) Invalid dump file
If this problem persists, contact Symantec Technical Support
at click here
(then press OKAY)

Symantec suggest checking the Ghost file, but I have had no joy.

Anyone got any suggestions or had this problem before. Any suggestions appreciated, as I am close to binning the whole thing. This will definitely be my last PC World PC!

(* System is 2.66Ghz P4, 512MB Ram, 80GB hard drive, running XP)

Have you tried disabling the Symantec firewall ?

Or is it the Symantec AV ?

will the AV and Firewall run in the background even though I am booting from CD?

uninstalled NAV and Firewall, same error. Will have to see if Symantec have any further information. If anyone else has any ideas, much appreciated.
I have now uninstalled all software (only running XP, but a CD from another PC, in an effort to get the restore going).
