Object variable or With block variable not set- Error 91
When Starting the TeleVantage admin console or device manager,the message
“Error 91 (Object variable or With block variable not set) has occurred, If this problem persists, contact your systems administrator.”
This message can be related to the account that TeleVantage runs as not being available or has been changed.
A quick fix is to navigating to the TeleVantage server directory and running the TVAccUtl.exe utility to reset the server account.
This issue occurs occasionally, as if the logging in user has never logged into a machine before. The old profile is still in in Documents and Settings, along with the newly created profile. Suspicions point to ntuser.dat becoming corrupted.

Getting stuck in the ghost virtual boot partition is not an uncommon event. The client boots into DOS to do some work, fails, and the client does not boot back into windows- it just sits there looking stupid.
Try Ctrl-x, give it a minute
Try Ctrl-C, give it a minute.
This should do the trick. If it doesn’t, the Symantec knolwedgebase also offers this advice: Continue reading “Stuck in Ghost Virtual Boot Partition”
NoNav is a utility provided by Symantec tech support. Sometimes, a Symantec Corporate AntiVirus installation fails for a client, and one of the recommended remediation practices is to remove the app manually. The problem with doing this is the number of steps in the process, including visiting hundreds of locations in the Windows registry to see if certain keys exist and if so, deleting them. For one box, this is a process. For five boxes, this is a project. You could try scripting this, or you can contact Symantec Tech support and get a copy of NoNav. This utility- Current Version 2.6- will clean out most of the settings left by Symantec Corporate versions 4,5,6,7,8,9,and 10. It should be noted that Norton (retail) products are not covered with the NoNav tool.
Running Nonav is simple, click on the executable file and it will ask for some input about what you would like to remove- Live update, virus definitions, etc. Some other input is required, options for scanning for .msi leftovers, rebooting the box at program end, and more. Each of these choices has an explanation and a recommended or not recommended note to guide the user. Let the program do some work, and if you have selected the option to do so, the machine will reboot automatically.
After the machine comes back up, you want to delete some directories left behind. These are outlined in the readme file included with NoNav- Symantec’s install directory, some shared file locations and some staging areas. Kill any that you find. Finally, delete everything in the system’s Temp directory (start, run, %TEMP%). Reboot again, and you can now reinstall the latest version of SAV and patch it to the right level.
NoNav can be acquired from Symantec Tech Support. If you have a valid support contract, call in and the technician will provide a link to download the latest version.
