Question about Acer Aspire Computers & Internet
I have downloaded the Windows 8 trial version from Microsoft, the trial licence has expired and I am receiving a message to buy windows 8. I have created a windows 7 restore disk (set of 3) but I am not being given the option to uninstall the trial of Windows 8 and return back to Windows 7 Home Premium.
To go back to windows 7 you will need to insert the system restore disk in to the cd drive, then reboot the computer, when the computer first starts up you will need to hit either f2 or f8 when the computer symbol first boots up either (dell, hp, sony.ect.) that will bring you to the boot menu then find where it will have cd/dvd drive in it most likely with some other words in the same line, once you have found that you will hit enter on your keyboard, then you should here your cd/dvd drive spin up, once it ask you to "press any key to boot from cd/dvd drive do that, then you should have the option to restore your computer

1. Yes, uninstall before installing any other antivirus program or security suite. Your computer (and you) will be happier.
2. Once you uninstall the trial version of Norton, go ahead and download One Care. I've heard some good things about it, but haven't used it personally or seen it installed on a client's computer.
3. Symantec/Norton has made improvements to their software uninstalls. If you have a newer version of Norton installed, it should cleanly uninstall from the Add/Remove programs area. If it's older, you may have issues getting it to uninstall - leaving remnants as you mentioned. Symantec has help removing their software completely on their support site if you need help.
Hope this helps! : )

Boot with a Windows 7 disk and format the machine while you install Win7. This will require you to have Windows 7, of course. There is not currently a system if place for purchasers of Windows 8 to rollback through Microsoft, at least not any that I'm aware of.
