A virus that cancels AV install?

  1. I've got a PC here that seems to have a mind of it's own.

    Now keep in mind I've been doing this job since 1993, BBS's, mainframes, the works.

    But this one, first real issue with the newer virii.

    Norton Corp edition 8.1, doing an install and it gets about 3/4 through it and says "Rolling back", then says something interrupted the install.

    I finally pulled the drive out and put it as a slave to my drive, with 8.1 corp edition installed and found 3 viruses but then it locks up every time it finds an additional one, Wininet.dll for example.....

    Can someone identify which viruses can disable norton? I've run a few of the common AV tools from Symantec but no joy.

    Tx :)
