You can remove it by going to the
control panel>add & remove programs > select program which must be uninstalled ....

this works only if the norton is installed correctly & if none of the files have not got missed or corrupted ...

one more way is just go to the folder where you installed the norton
there you can press uninstall.exe ... by this you can uninstall it ...
this also fine if the none of the files are missing or corrupted ...


if some of files are missing then if you couldnt able to uninstall from both of the above method means then

check whether the entry of the program is available or not in the add / remove programs ...
if it is not available then you can delete the installed folder directly ....

if it is available then you must install the norton again completely then you can uninstall it successfully without any problem from the control panel >add/remove programs ...


any doubts you can reply me
i am always here to assist you
thank you
bye

What year version is your Norton Internet Security program? 2008, 2007,...??? Is it called Norton 360? Did it come from our Internet Service Provider or from your computer manufacturer.

Have you tried Add/Remove programs in the control panel? There should also be an uninstall application in the Norton program group in Start->All Programs->Norton...

Many times with Norton it leaves portions behind or just flat won't uninstall. You will need to delete it manually from the program files in the C drive. Then you will need a registry cleaner, CCleaner works well at this, and you can find it at filehippo.com. After deleting and running a cleaner, do an all files and folders search from the start menu. If it finds anything Norton, write down the path, find it and delete it manually again. Then do all of this over until a search yields nothing pertaining to Norton.

Hello there.

Norton products are well known for not uninstalling correctly due to various reasons. Luckily Symantec know this and offer an uninstaller utility apart from the one that comes with the software.

Please click here and run the download when it has finished, this will remove the program from your system.

Hope this helps.

I purchased this computer, 2 gig memory last year. I had just put in Norton and it is running SUPER slow. How can I reset this computer to run normal? This is not the laptop


I have known several people who have had similar issues with norton, It seems to be quite resource hungry, if you really want to keep norton then I would suggest a RAM upgrade to give your machine more power, alternatively, you could try another antivirus, I use Microsoft Security Essentials and it works well for me.

However, check to see if norton is running a system scan, this will almost definately make your machine run slower.

Problem connecting to Gnutella network Bearshare 5.2.5


Hi,
This happens often when using Norton & updating. All you need is to remove the previous 'exception rule' and re-add it, so remove BearShare & re-add it as an exception for Norton. Only run one firewall. So choose between Norton & XP's firewall. The reason for this is Norton & XP's firewall clash, & cause problems including less security.

Let us know if you need further clarification.

I am attempting to install Norton Internet Security 2009. My McAfee Internet Security 2008 runs out in two days. Norton has indicated that I will have to remove an amount of existing programmes (about 20!)...


Norton will not replace the programs.

As long as you have the program disc, just re-install them after installing Norton.

Back up all data (saved documents) first.

Replacing new security protection


Yes.

The best way to do so is to download the Norton Removal Tool.

Here's a link:

Norton Removal Tool

Select the version (year) you have.

Save it to your desktop. When the download is complete, run (doubleclick) the program on your desktop.

Then install the new software.

Please completley remove the norton security from my computer...trying to run something comcst says you need to do something to rmove it...please do asap ...thank you


Go into Control Panel, then Add/Remove Programs. Wait for the list of all programs to load up.

Go down through the list and look for Norton Internet Security. Remove it. It will take a very long time, sometimes 1/2 hour or more depending on speed of computer. Reboot the computer after it has been removed, especially if/when it asks you to reboot after the process.

After rebooting, go back into Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs. Look for Symantec or Norton's Live Update, remove that as well. Also remove any other Symantec/Norton Anti-Virus or Internet Security programs as well. Then reboot the computer again.

Your computer should be much, much faster now. So now you need a new Anti-Virus program...

I've found in my experience that Norton and McAfee do more damage to some computers than good, besides the fact that they are severely over-priced. I would NEVER install either Norton (Symantec) or McAfee on anyone's computer. Matter of fact, I just had to remove Norton 2008 from a lady's computer today, an old Dell 2400 because her system was too old and slow to run new Norton.

My suggestions for much better anti-virus would be...

- Kaspersky Anti-Virus (search for it on Google, etc)

- Trend Micro PC-Cillin Anti-Virus (search for it on Google, etc)

- AVG Free Anti-Virus at http://free.grisoft.com, they also have more elaborate versions with more protection for a cost.

I personally use AVG on my computers, and my family does as well. It's very effective and gets out viruses that even Norton cannot remove.
