The easiest way to do this is to use a boot cd/floppy that will allow you to change the administrator password. Here are a few resources:

here is the more "official" way by using the recovery console and making a password recovery disk:

You may have been charged an automatic annual renewal fee. Go to https://www.mynortonaccount.com/amsweb/default.do?product_lang=EN and login (if you remember your user name). You can cancel your account so at least you don't get charged again next year.

You can contact Norton directly and maybe they can refund your money.

Norton will have an uninstaller located in control panel. I would uninstall Norton first and then run ccleaner to remove dead links and misc 'junk' files from your pc.

I recommend you do install an anti-virus program. May I suggest a free good one? AVG

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.
