SystemWorks 2003

by falgolreh / September 14, 2004 10:08 AM PDT

I have a problem with this Program after install it will run once or twice afetr that the program wants to reinstall it self
A pop-up message asks me to shut down all remaining
System Works progams (though there are none running)
When I cancel the install it keeps returning and I have to shut it down by way of the task master
if I keep hitting the cancel five or six times the Program starts up but as soon as I select a utilitie
the same thing starts all over
I could realy use some help with this

It seems the package hasn't installed properly. With norton you need to uninstal the entire program first then reinstall - but be very very careful to follow the instructions - and before you reinstall, download RNAV2003 from norton which will make sure you have completely uninstalled everything.
let me know if you have any problems - but u must be careful with norton otherwise you can dig yourself into a bigger hole - so be warned!!!

go to the norton site:-
http://www.symantec.com/techsupp/consumer.html
run the diagnostics utility and do a search of the knowledge base as well

get "Rnav2003.exe" and "symclean.exe" or one for your version

to properly uninstall NSW do the following

make sure u have uninstalled live update and live reg in the add/remove progs

delete but backup everthing in your "temp"

delete everything in program files\common files\symantech shared

delete everything from your NSW directory

delete everything from \documents settings\all users\application data\symantec

in "regedit" do a search for any words you can think of associated with NSWorks including the following and delete

"norton"
"symantec"
"nav"
"Live" and delete all entries associated with "live reg" and "live update" (but make sure they for norton)

hope this helps
