Norton trial version expired but not uninstalled

Hi,
I recently purchased acer aspire 2920 in jan 2008.My norton free trial version has expired.
1.Do I have to uninstall it before downloading another antivirus? I know 2 antivirus should not run at the same time but since this has expired and my computer is unprotected at the moment, I was wondering if I could :- 2.download Windows Live One Care for 90 days?
3.I do not not want to uninstall it my self as I do not want to leave any remnants of norton behind.
Am just 6 months old at computers.
Would be grateful for your help.
Thank you.

    I too have the exact same issue, my free norton that came with my Acer has expired.

    Would it be wise to download the free Live one? I cannot afford to buy an security package right now.....could you suggest anything else that would be free security?

    Please reply to stlady2001@hotmail.com

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! : )

I had a similar problem in that I first had a trial version, and then after the trial had expires, I bought a newer version. But the expired trial version security would not let the new version run, even though I had uninstalled the old trial version. I finally gave up and switch to OpenOffice, for free, and took back the copy of MS Office I had purchased.

Uninstall the trial version using control panel uninstall.
Insert the Norton install disk. It will start automatically. Depending on the operating system on your system you may have to click 'OK' to allow the program to install, follow online instructions.

Vista fail to activate 25 digit key


Where did you get the cd kay or activation key? CD key is unique. The trial version Microsoft Office is valid for 30days only. If you need to activate it again you should purchase a serial number from the Microsoft site or buy a Microsoft cd installer.

Note that if you buy a cd installer, you must first uninstall the trial version that is loaded on your machine before installing the Microsoft installer cd.

New purchased nortan 360 not install (old version march 2008)


It seems that you have an old version of Norton installed in your system. If so, uninstall it properly (tough job since plain uninstalling does not remove all traces of this program). You might check out the free `norton uninstaller' tools available at the link provided below.

http://service1.symantec.com/Support/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039

By the way, have you purchased a multiple license Norton product? If not, I'd not recommend installing it in more than 1 PC.

Message says my subscription has expired? I purchased Internet Security from Nortons on 12/7/07 why has it expired? It appars I am no longer protected and do not understand why this is.


Most of the Norton antivirus comes with one year subscription. date u mentioned here seems like more then 1 year old. That's why it says expired
If you dont want to spend any more money on antivirus then uninstall this one and download AVG from this site. this is really good antivirus for free and good for ever.
here is the link

Ive got norton all ready on my pc it has got 6 days left on it can install a new one now or do have to wait till it has run out


First, its a trial, meaning that if you want to continue using norton AFTER the trial time is over (6days according to what you said), then you must buy the full version from their website.
Wait until it expires, and then purchase it from their website so you can keep using it forever.
Though even if you uninstall it and re-install it after it expires, it still would be expired until you purchase it.

Cheers ;)

I have norton 360 and the pc tune up keeps saying outdated files left on computer but even when i run the scan it is not doing anything and the big red cross remains


Hi,
You need to run an update.
This will check Nortons Site, for recent Downloads. Anti-virus definitions Files et,c.
If you have only purchased a trial version, or version has Expired. Then it won,t let you access thier database without paying.
To resolve this, you could un-install Norton. And Re-install.
ensure your connected to the Internet before attempting updates.

If i can assist further please post-here.

Mike @ compurepair.
