>is this a security problem?

This seems not to be a security-related. However, the
issue sounds interesting (maybe some driver-related problems?).
I suggest that you use SoftICE or WinDBG to isolate the problem.

Hello cherie24,

Just out of interest. Do you use the Norton Removal Tool?

Hello cherie24 , Try using system restore.

Choose the point just before the uninstall of Norton was done.

This should restore your PC back the way it was.

Then use the Norton Removal Tool.

Reboot

Now try the installation Avast!

Best of luck to you,.
