I haven't forgotten about you. I'll be checking into this at work tomorrow.
I have been busy pruning BugHunter's pattern file.

Yes. I've been deliberatly trying to cause the error, so I can see about
fixing it. So far, no luck. Norton uninstalls itself okay and doesn't seem
to screw up WSC.

I have one suggestion so far, Try reinstalling the norton package, either
the same thing or a newer version, then uninstalling it properly thru
add/remove programs.

Please let me know what it does.

Re: NORTON HIJACKS WSC!

Dustin,

The version of Norton came pre-installed on this HP 1430n. The 60-day trial
is over. Is there a trial version with the same configuration available that
you know of?

Thanks,

marc

This is old, but anyway.. You can try downloading the latest trial copy
of Norton; and then uninstall it. It *should* revert WSC back to the way
it was originally.

Re: NORTON HIJACKS WSC!

What about replacing the WSC file: "%SystemRoot%\system32\wscui.cpl"  with a
fresh extracted copy of that file?

I thought that I'd mention that I've seen this before after doing
trials of AV and personal firewall software. I never found a good
soution. Everyone just said that WSC is badly broken by design. :-)


Just FYI, someone just posted a thread in this newsgroup on 6/4 about
having an identical problem with WSC after installing and removing
Comodo AV...

It's a poor design, true that. However, it has to be a fixable condition.
Likely one or more registry keys. Just a matter of getting the error to
happen so I can tinker. :)

Yep, I tried causing the error by doing what the poster did. No such
luck...
