If this is your first experience with a Norton product either discombobulating, or in need of being uninstalled and wiped clean from your system, you're quite likely to be in for a real "interesting experience". When I say "interesting experience", I don't mean the pleasant kind. This is an "interesting experience" I've had to endure countless dozens of times over. Notice I did say "likely", not necessarily. It is my sincere hope you will be greeted with success via the NRT alone.

The NRT (Norton Removal Tool) http://service1.symantec.com/Support/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039 is offered by Symantec, the software publisher of all Norton products. It is designed to remove all traces of whatever target Norton product you have in need of zapping. And why? Because THEIR uninstaller failed. But unfortunately, the NRT is VERY hit and miss in it's success rate.

If after running the NRT you still have problematic remnants remaining, you'll have to MANUALLY remove them. And if you ever need proof as to how frequently the "miss" part occurs, you'll readily see if/when you do the necessary subsequent search for the appropriate manual removal checkist.

Enter "How to manually uninstall PRODUCT_NAME" (without quotes) into the Symantec search engine (upper right in their webpage). Where PRODUCT_NAME = the exact name of the product you wish to uninstall. Carefully search through the long list of choices until you find the one that (most closely) matches your particualr Norton product. But I'll give you fair warning, if you're not comfortable working within the Windows registry, you're best off getting someone you know who is to assist you. It's also typically a fairly lengthy and tedious checklist to run (unless you've run it many times).

Are you beginning to sense my opinion of Norton yet? A word to the wise is sufficient. Anyway, time to get off the soapbox.

Good luck, and feel free to post back with a status update and/or further questions.

"Today's the best day of my life...and NOW you're part of it!"

A Brief History of Norton Anti-virus


Norton anti-virus is a product of Symantec Corporation. Norton anti-virus helps you to remove viruses and malicious codes from your computer, it also protect you from online threats. Symantec programmed and launched various versions of Norton anti-virus to protect your pc and Internet Security to secure your online activities from hackers.

As per history of Norton products, it's about 25 years before Norton antivirus came on the market. The name of the first Norton anti-virus was Norton Commander, released in the year 1986, served as a standard interface for DOS. This version of Norton was invented to protect DOS from malicious programs. Norton Commander was a prototypical orthodox file manager, written by John Socha and released by Peter Norton.


Norton Commander is considered easy to use based on its constant view of two file manipulation objects at once. After starting the program the user sees two panels with file lists. Each panel can be easily configured to show information about the other panel, a directory tree, or a number of other options.


When Symantec acquired Peter Norton Computing from Peter Norton, Norton starts to develop various utilities or applications for DOS, as well as for Windows. Product activation was introduced in Norton anti-virus 2004. Spyware and adware detection and removal tool was introduced to the 2005 version. The redesign main graphical user interface and homepage hijacking protection was released with 2006 version of Norton anti-virus. With the version of 2007 windows 2000 compatibility was dropped and Vista compatibility was introduced, with anti-rootkit technology. Version 2009 and 2010 released with Sonar protection, File Insight, and rogue security software tools. The latest version of Norton anti-virus is 2011, which protect your computer being infected from facebook wall and feed.

Please completley remove the norton security from my computer...trying to run something comcst says you need to do something to rmove it...please do asap ...thank you


Go into Control Panel, then Add/Remove Programs. Wait for the list of all programs to load up.

Go down through the list and look for Norton Internet Security. Remove it. It will take a very long time, sometimes 1/2 hour or more depending on speed of computer. Reboot the computer after it has been removed, especially if/when it asks you to reboot after the process.

After rebooting, go back into Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs. Look for Symantec or Norton's Live Update, remove that as well. Also remove any other Symantec/Norton Anti-Virus or Internet Security programs as well. Then reboot the computer again.

Your computer should be much, much faster now. So now you need a new Anti-Virus program...

I've found in my experience that Norton and McAfee do more damage to some computers than good, besides the fact that they are severely over-priced. I would NEVER install either Norton (Symantec) or McAfee on anyone's computer. Matter of fact, I just had to remove Norton 2008 from a lady's computer today, an old Dell 2400 because her system was too old and slow to run new Norton.

My suggestions for much better anti-virus would be...

- Kaspersky Anti-Virus (search for it on Google, etc)

- Trend Micro PC-Cillin Anti-Virus (search for it on Google, etc)

- AVG Free Anti-Virus at http://free.grisoft.com, they also have more elaborate versions with more protection for a cost.

I personally use AVG on my computers, and my family does as well. It's very effective and gets out viruses that even Norton cannot remove.
