    Good to know, thanks! Malwarebytes did install correctly, though.

    I installed Webroot Security Anywhere Endpoint Protection 8.0.5.107 no issues. Now to install 9879 I have to uninstall it, have to do it from the webroot admins console @ work. You cannot uninstall it from appwiz like the consumer flavor and I cannot remember the command line entry, so it waits till tomorrow.

    If Norton and Symantec won't install then MS really are doing us a favour.

    Installed Windows 10 over top of a Windows 8.1 system on day 2 of the release – and believe I was running Symantec’s End point running version 12.1.6318.6100 using 12.1.6.MPIA under Windows 8.1 – and was running that version once I got to Windows 10. I then noticed that I was not getting the normal virus definition updates and started to look into reloading End Point. It was at this point that I found out that I could not remove the current Symantec environment using the normal removal process under Windows (received a message that software updates were pending and needed to reboot – but the message remained after doing a reboot). At this point I tried the Symantec Removal tool which also failed in a similar manner. At this point I called Symantec and opened up an issue – and during a WebEx session the support person downloaded a zip file that contained Clean Wipe 12.1 RU6 MPIA.zip. When this version of Clean Wipe kicks off – it also starts the Symantec Diagnostic Support Tool first – which found a number of errors that existed. I then used the Clean Wipe program to remove my old version of Symantec End Point Manager.

    Good info! I ALWAYS recommend Cleanwipe when uninstalling and especially when attempting to reinstall...
