Symantec Enterprise VPN Client won't install

Archived from groups: alt.sys.pc-clone.dell (More info?)

Am getting a problem whilst trying to install Symantec Enterprise VPN
Client version 7.0 on a newly-delivered Dell Inspiron 6000 under
Windows XP with SP2.

During installation, the laptop does a BSOD, with an error which talks
about DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, at which time the only way out is
to powercycle the machine.

On next reboot, the error repeats, along with a reference to NDIS.SYS.

Windows has had all Windows Updates installed, and also has MS Office
Pro, Spybot Search and Destroy, Spyware Blaster installed.

Has anyone else had similar problems?

We can recover using the F8 options on boot, and using the "last known
good boot", but the VPN software simply doesn't run, despite the fact
that XP is named on the packaging as a supported platform.

Thanks in advance

    Try installing it with your anti-virus disabled. Long-shot, but.

    Also worth trying, and this is even more obscure, but I know someone who
    had trouble trying to install the Sims expansion packs, and had been sat
    on one of them for 6 months, trying repeatedly, and getting nowhere.

    Hit the EA website and do a search for some of the install tips for the
    Sims - it basically tells you to kill *every* task / service with the
    exception of about 10 "critical" ones, then try reinstalling.

    It worked for me :-}

    Safe mode, if possible, for installation. ?

    Not for the Sims - just killing all but absolutely essential services
