You aren't downloading from your CD, you are trying to install the program from the CD.

If other CD's work and the Norton CD doesn't, that would be a good indication the disc is bad. Are there scratches on the disc? Can you go into Explorer and try to lauch the exe installer file manually?

Maybe your computer doesn't want that bloatware on it. (Sorry, that does not help you)....Seriously, if other CD and DVD's work on your drive, then you have a bad disk. Return it where you purchased it, if possible, for a refund. Norton and McAfee are big names in antivirus, but their days are past. There are much better antivirus programs out there that will cost you much less (and yes, even FREE) and will use your system resources much better. You can download Avast from the internet for free and if you register it with them, you can keep it for free (they will ask you if you want to upgrade to the pay version, but it is not required and you can continue to receive their updates) Avast is a very good antivirus program which I have used at work on 6 machines and has many here who recommend it. I personally use Webroot's antivirus with spysweeper at home and it is my first choice for quite a few years now (you would have to buy it online, but there may be a trial version).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

forget norton, just download MSSE, security essentials, its free works perfectly and uses next to no resources..you have a built in firewall from windows and defender also. you do not need a third party app.
throw the norton boatware away.

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....
