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! : )

Hi,

Laptops that have pre-installed Microsoft Office in it usually have 60-day trial version or Microsoft Office starter. The trial version may be a Home edition and has the full features but will ask for a product key after the trial period expires. The MS Office Starter only has limited features for MS Word and Excel only, but this is not a trial version.

If you want to continue using the trial MS Office or want the full functionality of MS Word and MS Excel plus MS powerpoint etc, you need to follow the steps provided to activate or purchase a product key from the application itself. You need to purchase the product key from Microsoft since this program is unfortunately not free.

Hope this helps.

Apparantley i have a trojan worm in my lap top, i have norton and caled them they say i have a problem and my laptop is out of warranty and i have to purchase another one is this true


NO, you do NOT have to purchase a new laptop.

What the people at Norton probably meant was that your Norton anti virus software has expired and you need to purchase a new anti virus subscription from Norton if you want them to help you.

There are however other anti virus software manufacturers out there that are free and/or will allow you a 30 day trial period.

To help you clean out the worm in your system:

  • Find out the name of the worm you have on your system (your norton program will tell you this).
  • Go to this page: http://free.avg.com/us-en/virus-removal
  • Click on the link that has the same name as the worm on your system (don't worry about the I-worm or W32 part of the name, e.g. if your worm name contains navidad you want to click the I-worm/navidad link or if your worm name contains bugbear you want to click the I-worm/Bugbear.C link etc.)
  • Follow the instructions on the page you get to in order to get rid of your problem.
Hope this helps ;)

You may be able to purchase a recovery disk from Acer.
Failing that if you have the Windows installation CD you can boot up with the Windows CD and run Repair.
If you do not have a Windows installation CD, you might be able to borrow one BUT check the Windows label on the bottom of the notebook for the Windows version and the Product installation code.
Make sure the Windows CD matches the version that is printed on the label.
You may need to install the Acer device drivers again then -
Download the drivers from the Acer WEB site. Make sure youselect the model of your laptop and the XP or Vista version of the drivers youthat require and it matches the Windows version that is installed on yourlaptop. Use this link to get to the Acer support: -

If you have purchase a Disc with an antivirus program on it, you have a few options.

1.) Using another computer copy your disc to a flash drive

2.) Download the TRIAL version of the software (norton, Mcaffee, etc..) and then use the serial key off your retail package to register.

3) use an external USB cd rom drive to install the software.

McAfee?? this product you need to check how to totally remove it from your netbook because it will block most of the other anti virus. Consider as business strategy, so that end user just use this anti virus, rather than other.
