Norton really isn't that great in my opinion.

I recommend Avast Antivirus as the active scanner, and MalwareBytes Anti Malware as the user triggered scanner. It's okay to have both installed at once, since MalwareBytes only scans when the user requests it instead of automatically. Just make sure that Avast is not actively doing a scan before starting a scan in MalwareBytes.

Can't, not enough detail. The only thing we know it fail on the install.
Are you having other issue or just this?
