Basically, you need to scan your computer using antivirus, and fix the messy registry with software utility. If you use Microsoft Internet Explorer, you may install or Google Chrome browser (www.google.com) because that malicious software took control of your MS Internet Explorer.
Here is the download links (they are trial software but they can really fix the problem; you can uninstall them later)
1. Norton 360 (download and run it):

2. Norton Utility (download and run it):

I want to install BitDefender antivirus but errors this : [BitDefender2013 cant automatically uninstall Norton, we recommended that u manually uninstall this program and run BitDefender installation again...


Try to switch on the pc in safe mode and go to control panel and find the Add or Remove program feature and uninstall norton. If that route does work. Then try this one.... switch on the pc (Not in safe mode) then get the same norton antivirus that is installed on your pc on a cd or on a flash drive. Run it on your computer (install). Then there is going to be a page that brings options like Remove, Repair or Modify, then you can select Remove from the options and click next. Make sure that when you do this, your internet is disconnected. I hope this will be able to remove and uninstall norton. Restart the computer and the install Bit Defender. Good luck

Im trying to change my antivirus it wont allow me to remove it,keeps pauseing and freezing


What anti-virus program are you using?

The first thing I would try is getting into safe mode and then trying to do the uninstall from there. To get into safe mode reboot your computer and continually hit F8 until a screen appears with the option to boot into "Safe Mode With Networking".

Some Anti-Virus programs can be very difficult to remove. Often the companie's web site will have a removal tool (Symantec, Norton, etc.). I would look there as well.

Mistakenly downloaded Norton 360 and now I can't uninstall it. The face page is blank and it pops up on my main screen all of the time .


If you click Start then Control Panel then Programmes and Feature, look down the list until you see Symantec Norton 360. Select uninstall.
That will remove all of 360 but if it is not there, it has been deleted and not uninstalled. Re install the programme and uninstall it as per my instructions.

I can no longer get online with my Toshiba Satellite laptop.


Sometimes Norton seems to put up a firewall of it's own sort blocking the Internet Connection port. Try uninstalling Norton and if worst comes to worst use this removal tool http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file/fid,73329-order,3-page,1/description.html

That should solve the problem. Hope this helps.

Norton trial version expired but not uninstalled


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! : )
