Norton Antivirus 2011 Installation Problem

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi! Everyone,

I'm trying to install the latest version of Norton Antivirus 2011 in my computer, and before this, I was using 2010 version.

When the installation started, the program said that you have to uninstall the previous version before proceeding.

When I selected to uninstall the previous version, an error message appeared.


Symantec AntiVirus

Error 1714. The older version of Symantec Antivirus

could not be removed. Contact your technical support



Please reply urgently.

Norton Antivirus 2011 Installation Problem



The best way to solve the error is to replace this Antivirus software with its new version if available. If there is no new version available then go to command panel and then write msconfig.

Stop all Microsoft related services here and then restart your computer and try to install this Antivirus software.

If you have virus then remove it first. There is another reason that may be your computer is corrupted with virus. So you need to use another updated Antivirus and scan the full computer. When you have done with it then uninstall that Antivirus and run a PC cleaner or Antispyware. Then try to install.
