W32 Sasar worm disabled my Nortons antivirus

I have windows XP and have just got rid of the W32 Sasar B Worm using the appropriate tool. But now my Nortons antivirus 2003 has been disabled for some crazy reason. I uninstalled and tried to reinstal from my cd but it wont reinstall, giving me an error mssage 1406.
I have tried to contact Symantec, but I can't find anywhere to contact them.
This is driving me insane, because I have no virus prtection at the moment and I paid good money for for my Nortons antivirus program, but I can't get it to work now.
Any suggestions, or help ?
