Robear, TMIS2008 is a "problem child", installs nice on some computers not on others. I
had the same error when installing over 2007 version but a reboot fixed the same for me.
Spam Filter does not play nice with OE either (regardless of whether Nortons was installed
or not) No solution to the problem. Phishing filter on Trend may also cause problems. Had
to disable the same.
As for the WU error - has Trend been configured to not scan the softwaredistribution
folder? That's the only other thing I did.
Perhaps Trend was accidently configured to block WU?
