Question about Symantec Norton Ghost 14.0: Windows

Trying to reinstall norton ghost v14

I installed Norton Ghost 14 from downloaded file and during the completion of the install step I received an error stating that the program needs to be reinstalled. "go to add/remove programs and remove ghost then start the install process over" there was no list of ghost in the add/remove listing so i removed mannually. Upon the attempt to reinstall I receive the error message "a more recent version of Ghost is on this machine - remove this version before attempting to install. Upon running a search I find no files with "Norton", "Symantec", or "Ghost" showing up.

    I believe that a reference of Ghost exists in the registry only and not in C:\. Since it has become such a pain to install i think it best to not try further since my system is stable now. There's a history of Norton not working will with Windows.

Hi,
Sometimes when you install a software on system and suddenly uninstall it, then some registry files get remain in system memory. Next time when you install the same software, computer shows eror. same happened with your Norton Ghost 14. So firstly remove its registry files from regidt and install the same program.

I have the same problem with you. Lukily enough I found the solution from this website.

http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic107021.html

However, I didn't uninstall the NOD32 in my PC prior to double click the Norton Removal Tool.
It seems to work fine anyway. As soon as the NRT finishes its task which takes only a few minutes,
I reintall the Norton Ghost 14 and it works without any problem.

Good luck.

You need to remove Norton with Nortons own removal tools. Add/remove program not the same thing as it leaves stuff in the registry. Go to norton.com and get removal tool..Run it, then try the re-install.

Reformatted computer, found files with GHS & GHO,how to recover?


Hi 'jen2x':

I’m Melinda and I represent Symantec’s PR Department.

Norton Ghost has the following key features:

  • Full system backup (disk image)—Backs up everything on a hard drive or partition.
  • File and folder backup—Backs up only the specific files and folders you choose rather than saving an entire drive.
  • FTP backup—Copies recovery points to a FTP site for easier offsite backup management. NEW
  • Offsite backup—backs up your files to NAS (Network-Attached Storage) devices. NEW
  • Symantec ThreatCon integration—triggers incremental backups whenever ThreatCon reaches a specified threat level. Great for computers without virus protection. NEW
  • Incremental and differential backup—Backs up only files that have changed.
  • EXCLUSIVE! Google Desktop™ integration—Makes data recovery even faster with searchable backup indexes.
  • LightsOut Restore—Restores your system with an on-disk software recovery environment—no bootable CD required.
  • EXCLUSIVE! Remote management—Controls other Norton Ghost installations (12.0 or higher) on your local area network.
  • Advanced compression and encryption—Minimizes storage space and helps keep sensitive documents safe.

Removing norton ghost before reinstalling


If you tried removing Ghost yourself by deleting foulder or files then it will not appear in the add/remove list. Try reinstalling it and then using removal tool. Make sure you have correct one for version and your OS. My advice is stay away from Norton products, they severely slow down performance and hinder daily activities. There are free tools online that work much better.

I'm trying to instal Norton Ghost 14. Installation goes fine until reboot. I get error E1AD3212 oon Ghost startup ande can't start the Ghost service manually -- Is there a fix for this -- Windows XP SP3...


Which antivirus previously installed? If any antivirus present then remove it in safe mode.
And better to install Norton in Safe mode
Go to Safe Mode with Networking by Tapping F8 key during Bootup, a black screen with option, select the option and then login as Admin account..

If it fails, then try using the Security Configuration Tool to make sure you have privileges to Ghost. You'll find the Tool in your programs menu under Programs|Norton Ghost|Security Configuration Tool.
After then, install Norton.. Let me know the status for further assistance.
Best of Luck
