Question about Computers & Internet
OK...Hope this helps...
Go to start/ run/ type regedi/ hit enter.
This will be your registry. Be very very careful in this part of your OS. A mistake can cost you a re install.
On top tool bar click on Edit/ find/ type in norton/ click on find next. A "highlighted registry entry" will pop up on the left or right of the page. Right click/ delete. Hit F3/ do the same to the next entry that appears highlighted. Continue with F3 until you see "finished searching" or like that....
Now go back and do the same thing with symantec by typing it in the find what box. You can now go to add/remove programs & uninstall these softwares. Restart & see if that helps...
For AVG or AVAST I go to Download.com and AVG is on that home page maybe AVAST is too. Good Luck...

It appears that your un-install didn't quite finish in its entirety, no problem try this:
First off, go to control panel and click on security, see if windows still recognizes norton as your antivirus. If not and it says you are unprotected, go ahead and download the av of your choose, however, Avast is hard to beat, its free and reliable. Follow the setup instructions. You may get a message that says "Avast has detected other av programs install on this computer-do you want to continue with install, click yes or OK. Once your av is up and running go around and delete anything and everything that says norton/symtac. There are quicker ways of deleting the norton av, but, that would depend on your level of windows expertise. You don't want to go snooping through your root directory or your root if your not clear on what to do, so, try this and see if it helps.
