Symantec antivirus is a very good antivirus.

The error is because your older antivirus is not fully removed, and some of its parts may create problems when installing the new antivirus.

So, follow the steps below to fully remove your older antivirus:

  1. Go to Start>Setting>Control Panel.
  2. Then, go to the “Add or Remove Programs” option.
  3. There, you will see the Symantec antivirus.
  4. Click it and uninstall it.
  5. Wait a few moments for the antivirus to be fully removed.
  6. Then, clean up the drive. You can also use the CleanWipe Tool for disk cleanup.
  7. Then, restart your computer, and try to install your new Symantec antivirus.

This time, you should easily be able to install Symantec Antivirus.
If you face this problem again, you can look at the Symantec Official website conversation.
