Removing Symantec Im trying to remove Symantec from a PC. It was on there before therefore Im not able to get any information other than its Symantec version 8. There is no trace of it in All program, the software it not there, but when I install my new AV its detecting Symantec. Its actually in Add/Remove Programs but when I remove it, it says preparing to uninstall, but after a couple of seconds, it just disappeared. Tried stopping services, removing in registry files. to no avail. I have XP Pro and SP3 Any advise Thanks

This behavior can occur if there is an incorrect setting in the following registry entry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders\Common Administrative Tools

Note This registry key exists only if you upgrade your computer from Windows 98 Second Edition to Windows XP or from Windows Millennium Edition to Windows XP.

This behavior may also be caused by Norton AntiVirus 2003.

Noton remove


actually your old pc still connect to norton via internet and finds that the lisence is used somewhere else. earlier it was ragistared on that pc so will not accept on new pc. I have two solutions for you.
1. go to run(windows key+r)>type regedit and enter, now hk-local-machine and then software and you will see norton entry there, remove the whole folder from there and restart(this is on old pc) and then try on new pc.
2. contact norton customer care and inform them about the situation, they wil definitly help you.

I purose Norton 360 02 and I am having trouble installing it on my computer. When I use teh CD it begins to install the program and the stops saying it can't a file, something like msi. I don't know...


Hello,

I would suggest removing ALL detected Norton and Symantec products with the Norton Removal Tool for Norton 360 found here.

http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2007080716223439?Open&docid=2005033108162039&nsf=tsgeninfo.nsf&view=docid

After the uninstall of all Norton and Symantec programs you will also want to download the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility found here. The download link is at the bottom of the More Information section,

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301

After the utility is installed and ran you will want to remove all Norton and Symantec programs listed in the removal list.

After you remove the programs and restart you should be able to reinstall the Norton 360 program.

I hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

Hi kja2 ,

2 anti-virus software can not co-exist on a computer system ; therefore you did the correct thing by uninstalling the old anti-virus first . However , there are lots of anti-viruses which do not get deleted (uninstalled) by going to Start > control panel > Add/Remove program. These anti-virus have to be removed by special "uninstallers" . I do not know which Anti-virus you have on your system , therefore I will provide you with the link of most common anti-virus uninstallers :

Symantec: http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039
McAfee: http://ts.mcafeehelp.com/displayDoc.asp?docID=408302&categoryId=246&lastCategoryLog=1&HotT
Trend Micro: http://esupport.trendmicro.com/support/viewxml.do?ContentID=EN-1033129


once the antivirus is removed through the uninstaller , then try installaing the new anti-virus which was giving you "files corrupt" message ... it will then work fine.
Also , . I would like to suggest you a very good anti-virus which you can download free of cost from internet :

Goodluck :-)
