1 Answer

Cannot uninstall Norton - get 'ERROR 9999.174' message.

Bought the new lap top Jan'08. Beleive Norton antivirus was on it, I didn't want to use it so loaded AVG free. The computer has just got very very slow so I uninstalled the AVG yesterday 23/09/2009. Tried to load a 30day trial of 'Trend Micro PC Sillin' yesterday but it won't load because Norton still there. Went to Control Panel and tried to uninstall the Norton, after a long winded scan appearing to happen it comes up with 'Error 999.174'.
Any assistance would really be appreciated, thanks Peter.

    Tried safe mode. When I opened the control panel & tried to uninstall 'Norton Internet Security' it came up with the following - "SETUP HAS DETECTED WINDOWS IS IN SAFE MODE. PLEASE RESTART YOUR MACHINE IN NORMAL MODE. SETUP WILL NOW EXIT"
    Not sure where to go from here.
    Thanks for your assistance so far.

    Forgot to add, in the list of programs at Norton Internet Security is following - 'Date installed'- 09/02/08 and under Size - Blank space. No program size is displayed under this heading.

Try to start your windows on safe mode.
To do it restart your computer and press F8 button before windows logon appear then you will start windows on safe mode.
After you start windows on safe mode go to control panel again and try to remove it.

My brother installed norton 360 onto my lap-top computer now i cannot access the int-net. the dealer i bought the computer from said he could fix it for $29. is it worth it ?

It may be worth it, that isn't that bad of a price for a repair. The first thing I would try though is going to your control panel, and uninstalling norton 360. It is one of my least favorite antivirus programs. I would suggest trying avast free edition. If you like it you can always pay for the better version which has a few more features. It is a very good antivirus. Here is the link:
Thank you,

After updating restart your system to automatically fixed some errors. If the system still same error just click the balloon on the taskbar and select "i have my antivirus (not probably same word)" something like that. if Finally same error encountered uninstall the norton 360 and again reinstall after rebooting and updates. don't worry about the alert, you know already that you are protected.
