    Hi

    I was running Prevx with Norton 360

    I removed Norton 360 and Prevx no lnoger worked, so I removed prev by control panel and the uninstaller, checked the registry that it was in deed gone and reinstalled.

    I get the same message every time i.e.

    This is the log

    Code:

    Hello,
    Welcome to the forums! :) Could you try running our specialized removal tool from: http://info.prevx.com/download.asp?grab=csiuninstalltool to double check every piece is removed? I'm surprised to see the installation crashing but there may be an issue with a left-over component.

    After running this tool, try rebooting your system to see if you can then install properly. If not, let us know and we'll investigate it further :)

    very good, and you have the best protection currently on the market. You can now dump Norton.

    From what I have been reading in these forums, Symantec already signed him up for another year. ;)
