Hi Mike,

Apparently only when it is broken or there is a failed install. After
reading the info from Norton the Tool is designed to remove and then
reinstall. It would be good if they provided a 'removal' tool as Norton is
infamous for leaving lots and lots of debris behind. However, the standard
Windows Add-Remove feature should be adequate to resolve Keith's current
issue.

John.

Hi John & Keith,

Doesn't norton antivirus require a removal tool from Norton to get rid of
that program?
Take care.

Hi Keith,



Just press Windows key and type: uninstall;



In the list there should be an item named 'change or remove a program -
control panel', press enter on this;



A list of installed programs will appear, arrow down until you get to Norton
Anti-Virus, then press Alt + F then U;



Confirm uninstall by pressing enter on the 'Yes' button.



Follow any other steps necessary, such as reboot etc.



John.

norton anti virus and the antivirus is expired, and needs billing info. If
I could remove the program, I would.

What antimalware program or programs are on the machine. I haven't
used enough of them to know the different ways different programs flag what
they think is malware. This may have nothing to do with Windows and may be
an inaccessible dialog from an antimalware program. It's time to find out
what the dialog says.

Never mind. Now that I think about it, which is not often since I
don't have UAC enabled myself, there should be no

"OK"

button in the UAC prompt.

That is most likely the User Account Control AKA UAC prompt
asking if you want to allow the installation to proceed. Try running setup
again and when you hear the sound, press Alt+Y to select the

"Yes"

button. For the record, although there are certainly
differences between Windows 7, 8, and 10, they also have many basic things
in common. Most of the issues you have experienced so far are due to lack
of experience. All of the questions you have asked so far would for the
most part have received the same replies if you were running 7 or 10.

Hi,



I took several of the suggestions offered to me
regarding installing programs and was able to install classic shell to my
new windows 8 machine.



I then placed the contents of my window eyes 8.4 cd
onto a thumb drive and used the windows key plus R combo and opened the
thumb drive and found the setup.exe file and hit enter on it.



Nothing happened, but then there was some sort of
sound and a new window appeared with an okay button, but nothing else.
Nothing was read under the narrator TTS.



I am logged into the admin account, so I'm not sure
what is going on or what else I should be doing.



Kind of wish I could have gotten my hands on a
windows7 or windows 10 machine, but my wife got the computer for me.



Didn't do her research I'm guessing.



Thanks for any help.
