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 keep getting messages that tell me I have many errors on my computer. One company with whom I accidentally thought was you told me it was going to cost X amount to fix. Norton which is on my computer...


If your computers running OK ignore them they are after your money.If you are running Microsoft Windows do the routine maintenance once a week.Use file checker and the defrag tool
and the delete browsing history tool, also find the add and remove programs tool and remove games and programs you don`t use.But be careful and make sure you don`t remove system files.You will probably still get error messages but ignore them or do a reinstall of Windows and start afresh with a clean system.I don`t like Norton and use the free Microsoft Security Essentials program and have never had a problem.

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.)

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.

Trying to reinstall norton ghost v14


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.

I'm trying to instal Norton Ghost 14. Installation goes fine until reboot. I get error E1AD3212 oon Ghost startup ande can't start the Ghost service manually -- Is there a fix for this -- Windows XP SP3...


Which antivirus previously installed? If any antivirus present then remove it in safe mode.
And better to install Norton in Safe mode
Go to Safe Mode with Networking by Tapping F8 key during Bootup, a black screen with option, select the option and then login as Admin account..

If it fails, then try using the Security Configuration Tool to make sure you have privileges to Ghost. You'll find the Tool in your programs menu under Programs|Norton Ghost|Security Configuration Tool.
After then, install Norton.. Let me know the status for further assistance.
Best of Luck
