Question about Symantec Norton Ghost 14.0: Windows

Trying to remove norton Ghost

I loaded the norton removal tool and upon running file i got message: "before you can run removal tool you need to remove norton ghost by going to the add/remove programs." Problem is that there is no listing of any norton products are listed in add/remove programs. I understand that references must exist in the registry of Ghost but i was hoping that the norton removal tool would clean this up. Is there a "higher strength" version of this removal tool?

    I've removed the Norton Ghost files and was able to clean up the registry of dead end links and will avoid use of products from Symantec. Thanks for all your assistance.

No, you just restart the system in safe mode and run Norton removal tool
Before that please remove all the Norton entries under Local system and current user hives in Registry

I just had Norton re-installed after being removed; not running


One possible issue: the original Norton was not completely removed. Try running the Norton Removal Tool. Download it from: http://www.symantec.com/norton/support/kb/web_view.jsp?wv_type=public_web&selected_nav=&pvid=&docurl=20080828154508EN

Make sure you know your product key. Directions are on above site.
Then reinstall your Norton Product. After rebooting following running the Removal Tool, your browser will probably open with directions for downloading and installing the Norton product. Otherwise, you can use your CD, if you bought a box version. If you bought the product online, you need to check your download directory to see if you still have the installer or try to redownload the file (check the paperwork for your purchase).

I hope this helps.

(I have assumed that you are not running Windows 7 and have remaining time on your subscription. If you have Win7, the directions that follow use of the Norton Removal Tool are your best option. Norton 2010 is Win7 compatable.)

Error Copying old c: drive w/Ghost 9


Do a disk defrag on the source drive. If that doesn't work, you may have a virus on your source drive and norton ghost is catching before getting on your destination drive.

Please help me to reinstall my norton 360 version 2.0 on my pc. the product was bought on the 2/19/09.


Hello,

Make sure you have the CD key or have registered your product on Symantec. You will also need any other Norton product keys if you have them installed on your computer.

Best advice I can give is to first run the Norton Removal Tool which can be found at Norton Removal Tool at Step 4. This will fully remove all Norton products from your system.

After you run the Removal Tool, you can reinstall the 360 software, run Live Update, and enter your CD Key to reactivate. It should pick up where you left off as far as Days Remaining.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Note: Should you still have a problem, try the on-line support that is included in the price of your 360. Access it through the Help selection on the menu. It is very good.

Don't know how to restore files from backup done with North Ghost


Using Norton Ghost 9.0 is very good program to backup your System & Documents.
You said the PC is dead then you want to restore back your System to a new PC.
All you have to do is that Norton Ghost 9.0 CD is Bootable.
Of course also your external hard drive are plug in it too.
Manually you're going to open that Sv2i file to restore back again your old system but there are some programs that are not going to use. Like for example: System Drivers (Motherboard Driver, LAN, SOUND, etc.) but at least you have the Documents and the rest of the programs run again.
I try it myself this kind of situation, I'm using Windows 2000 with Norton Ghost 9.0 version, and it's 100% works. Good luck!
Hope i might give you some tip & idea.
Tell me more about if you got a problem.
Please rate me.
Thank you.

Removing norton ghost before reinstalling


If you tried removing Ghost yourself by deleting foulder or files then it will not appear in the add/remove list. Try reinstalling it and then using removal tool. Make sure you have correct one for version and your OS. My advice is stay away from Norton products, they severely slow down performance and hinder daily activities. There are free tools online that work much better.

you need to remove Norton with Nortons own removal tools. Add/remove program not the same thing as it leaves stuff in the registry. Go to norton.com and get removal tool..Run it, then try the re-install.
