    ste_w as 'we' explained u must first erase directory that contains Symantec Norton System Works 2003 + erase reg. keys using regclean ( there are specific names - only by symantec ) ..

    Go to add/remove programs in the control panel and remove NSW 2003.

    Then go here

    After all of that, Install NSW 2003 again. For some reason, NSW or any other Symantec product will not install properly until all traces of any prior Symantec/Norton product installation has been completely removed!

    Keep us informed!
