Desktop Home install caused computer to fail to start and repeatedly restarts
I just purchased Desktop Home (PGP Desktop) and installed it. As it installed it indicated that it would need to reboot and should I do it now or later. I selected later, and then when I eventually did a restart on the computer things went horribly wrong.
The computer started up very very slowly. Audio also disappeared. I'm running Windows XP on a very fast computer and it boots quickly. When I eventually got to the login selection page, I selected my account and then it still took a long time to come up. As it was coming up, iTunesHelper crapped out, the taskbar was only partially visible and eventually it indicated that a system service (RPC I think) could not be started and the sytem would reboot. Which eventually it did.
I'm now busy saving my data files using a disk recovery program so that I can scratch load the whole system.
I'd like to understand what the problem is.
The ironic thing is that I decided to go with Symantec (I already use Norton) since I figured I'd have less trouble with software that was commercially supported and that I wouldn't have to fiddle with constantly. Particularly for something as important as encryption.
If someone can recommend next steps (other than just rebuild the whole box) I'd really appreciate it.
