Why would my Windows Installer close when installing anti-virus?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I'm trying to install my Symantec Anti Virus on my PC that I've had for years, and it just wont work. It unpackages the files, starts the Windows Installer, then everything closes. I have no fire walls nor do I have any anti virus on the pc as of now. I DO have several services stopped and set to manual, as per the Windows XP FAQ submitted here. I've never had this problem before though. Any ideas as to why it stops would be greatly appreciated. I'm thinking I have service or something like that off that I need to turn on, but I dunno... might be something else.

Thanks for any insight, +REP if someone can gimme the answer

lol maybe it's your virus. If you have one. I got spyware (turned my computer into a bot) and it would not let me access any site with anti-virus software. It was weird.

I dont have any virus's though lol... at least that I know of. My PC runs 100% fine, I get zero pop ups or anything at all that would tell me I got a virus.

I'll try and run an online scan I guess see if that turns up anything.
