Error 1006 (000003EE) has occured, unable to install !
« on: January 21, 2013, 06:01:39 AM »
I just got a new computer and I'm trying to download and install my avast internet security on it but, for some reason it won't let me. I keep getting the error 1006. I have a ZT computer with the following: Windows 8...Intel Core i7-3770 CPU @ 3.40 GHz...RAM-16.0 GB....64 bit operating system- x64 based processor. I also have the most recent Firefox...google chrome and internet explorer on it. Oh..it also came with Norton virus ware that is running on it. How can I get my avast downloaded on this thing?~!

you have to remove norton before installing avast...

when done, run norton removal tool to clear any leftover files that may conflict
