Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit SP1

Uninstalled Chrome and tried to reinstall via smart installer (online installer), but it just sits on my screen saying "connecting to internet". I tried running the installer as admin, but receive an error message saying "Installation failed. Installer does not support installation with Admin privileges." I know that I can dl the full chrome package, but auto updates are unavailable that way. Any ideas? What setting/service/privilege is screwed up after the Norton debacle?
Should I start a different thread?

Auto updates are only unavailable (for obvious reasons) if you install a portable version.
Besides if your Installer doesn't connect it's usually because some firewall or AV program blocks the program.
Do you have a 3rd party firewall?
Otherwise just follow ganjiry's advice clean up the mess and try again
