Just recently, I had to reinstall windows xp since a nasty spyware infection embeded itself into the important system files. When I reinstalled windows xp, I only chose to reinstall the os. I did not create a totally new partition. When I started my computer up in the new partition, my first objective was to install norton antivirus. However, when I put the installation disc into the drive and clicked install, it said that it couldn't since there was already another copy of norton (which had been installed previously). I went to add/remove programs in order to uninstall the old version, but it said that it could not be uninstalled because there was one file that it was unable to locate. I tried doing the same with other programs as well, but the same message popped up. I also tried going into program files manually and deleting the files like that but that did not work either. So I just decided that I might have made a mistake the first time around when I was installing windows xp and I reinstalled it again. After that, I was still unable to install norton, so I tried again and this time I was successful. However, just after I installed the fresh copy, I realized that I had accidentally put the file on my small back up hard drive which I use only for storing my excess files. Could anyone please tell me how I could install xp so that there is only the copy on the main hard drive?
