Cannot install any new software & updates after using Norton Ghost 9.0 System Restore

  1. After I perform a System Restore using Norton Ghost 9.0 my computer works great and is stable. At the time I created the Ghost Image(1/8/05) I had all the current Microsoft updates at the time minus SP2 and all my video/audio/hardware(mouse) drivers were up to date. I did a virus scan and a Spyware and adware scan withAd-Aware/Spybot and Spysweeper. My PC was bare bones when I made the Ghost Image. Also if 100% free of dust and does not over heat.

    Here is what I don't understand, I have Norton Antivirus 2005. The Anitvirus works fine if I don't install any new programs. If I install anything new, then perform a Full System Virus Scan, Norton scans every file, but when its finished it says it only scanned 95 files because not all of Nortons files loaded or are missing.. If I rescan with Norton my PC restarts and I get a blue screen. The Blue Screen goes by so quick I can't read it.

    Please keep in mind this only happens after I install new software and/or Microsoft Critical Secruity updates.

    My next idea is to do another Ghost Image Restore , and remove Norton antivirus first, then re-install it and see if that helps things.

    * If anyone is familiar with using Restore Images can you please help me out. I don't understand what is happening*

    Thank you

    Ghost 9 issues

    When and if you get your problem resvolved, I recommend doing your backup and restores with Ghost 2003. It came with your Ghost 9 and claimed it was for earlier operating systems. Ghost 9 is really a product formerly called Drive Image. I hope you get out of the problem you have without having to reinstall everything.
