cannot schedule scan event, unable to uninstall NAV

I just clean installed Win2K.  One of the first applications I installed was Norton AntiVirus (2000 6.0).  It seems to work properly, except I cannot schedule a virus scan event, the program bombs out on me ("Error saving the scheduled event. You may be out of disk space, or have a corrupted Schedule.Dat file").  I am not out of disk space, that's not the problem.  (I am able, however, to schedule a virus definition update event.)  On the Symantec support pages they tell you to:  Replace schedule.ini
1. Uninstall Norton AntiVirus
2. Search for and rename all copies of schedule.ini the schedule.old.
3. Reinstall Norton AntiVirus

When I try to uninstall, however, I get a "VAVNT.ISU is missing or corrupt" error.  What do I do?

RE: cannot schedule scan event, unable to uninstall NAV


Find the file VAVNT.ISU and rename it to something else .old or something. Then try to uninstall.
