Removing norton ghost before reinstalling

I downloaded the removal tool from symantec and it would not run unless i first removed version of ghost by going to add/remove programs. problem is that no listing of any norton or symantec products show up in add/remove programs. is there a higher strength version of this removal tool? i understand that references to ghost must exist in registry and need to be removed but i was hoping the removal tool would accomplish this

Norton Ghost is used to take data backups. You can't run two programs for same manufacturer on same PC. Sometimes there is a issue with registries of Norton software.

uninstall Norton ghost and then install norton removal tool.

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.

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.

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.

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.
