If it won't uninstall from the Control Panel/Add-Remove Programs section, then you may need to manually uninstall VS 8.5i by using the instructions below. It's a little complex but it should get the job done.
Manual Uninstall Of Virus Scan Enterprise 8.5i
One other note, when installing VS 8.5i, BE SURE that ALL other previous antivirus programs are uninstalled/removed from the computer.. In addition, it's important to install the program on a CLEAN computer.. After removing VS manually using the instructions above, then try running an online scan from the link below. You'll need to use Internet Explorer to use the scanner. It should clean out any malware from the computer which will allow you to correctly install VS 8.5i.
And just for good measure, after cleaning out the computer, delete all the junk files from the Temp and Temporary Internet Files folders, then run a defrag.. Restart the computer, close any other scanners on the machine and install VirusScan.
Hope this helps.
