Re: Help Me Please
Go to the above site and download the removal tool .
Have you tried System Restore? You should try to remove Norton with the tool symantec provides before you try a system restore.

This is an issue that frequently comes up. Please make sure that you have your product key from your new subscription stored (the MyNorton account is a useful place to store the data since you can cut and paste the number into Norton IS).
First check if NIS 2009 has your correct subscription information. Start the program, click on Help and Support > Subscription Status. Click Finish when that window finishes its activity.
If it is still confused, my solution is to update to Norton Internet Security 2010 (no cost to you).
One way to do this is through the Norton Update Center: http://updatecenter.norton.com/?NUCLANG=en
The other is to use the Norton Removal Tool: ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/removal_tools/Norton_Removal_Tool.exe After the product removes all trace of any Norton product and rebooting your computer, if you have a good internet connection, it will lead you through downloading and installing the updated product. I recommend the Removal Tool since frequently the error you report is due to NIS not correctly updating the registry when the new subscription is updated.
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.

If you're still running NIS 2005, I'd say it's time to upgrade if it expires in 10 days. You can usually get a newer version of Norton with an upgrade rebate at one of the big box stores. Hurry though.
