Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1

At this time I will again suggest running the System File Checker

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

And if no help, a Repair Install

Repair Install

As you seem to have bigger issues than just getting an AV program to install.

I sincerely doubt that is correct. Download and run the Norton Removal Tool as advised. After Norton is removed, if you do in fact have a problem installing another AV, let us know.
got it working, i installed trend micro, it wouldent install several times, but on the 5th try i was looking at the quick logs of it and it found problems installing and fixed somthing in my reg it said. it was my computer, just like i thought, hp is a virus, dont trusstem whatever you do

Glad you got it finally. I'd run the SFC just to make sure your system files are ok. A Guy
