I used a utility today to clean out/check my my Windows Registry for errors. The utility found over 400 errors but because it was a free trial, it only removed 30, I think. Anyways, on PCWorld's website, I found a download for DBAN (Darik's Boot And Nuke). You burn it to a blank CD and then start your computer up from the burnt disk to clean out your entire hard drive and start from scratch. Not sure if anyone has heard of this or not.
Anyways, I have a family member who goes to a university. They use Symantec Endpoint Protection there. I got it installed once before, a while back but the LiveUpdate portion of it got corrupted and I was unable to use it. With that being said, when I try to install it now, it rolls back during installation. If I wipe my drive, and reinstall a fresh Windows 7 OS on it and try SEP again, does anyone think that would solve the problem?
