uninstalling norton internet security

Recommended Posts

First of all Thanks.

 

I am now in the site and it asks me about if my norton is 2008 or 2007,where I can see this information in the machine?

 

It should show it in "All Programs".

 

Click the start button > all programs > look for Norton.

The windows deleted the name of the norton of the listed programs on my first trying,but I found a document of text with 2007.

If you already uninstalled the program using Windows, could you explain what you are trying to do?

 

I'm sure there is much leftover on your machine. You can try re-installing and then running the Norton Removal tool.

 

I don't think you can run the tool, if you already ran the Norton program uninstaller through Windows.

 

Since Norton was installed on your computer when you bought it, you may not be able to install it again without a key for the program.

 

Update: You may be able to run the Norton Removal Tool even after you already uninstalled it.

 

If the product is currently not installed on your computer, check the Product Key at the back of the CD sleeve, or in the confirmation email that you received from Symantec for your download purchase. Once you write down the Product Key, go to STEP 3.

 

You don't need the key if you aren't going the reinstall Norton.

I am trying to uninstall the norton that came inside my equipment, but the Add/Remove function of the Windows made only part of the service.What I do?

Hello Wagner,

Welcome :D

In addition to what Jamin4u has provided there is also a later version that I used recently.

I have used 2 or 3 versions but this latest removed even more.

See this thread. It is short.

Good luck,

:) davey

edit P.S. Looks like the version may be the same one that you have already used.

If or when they come out with a newer version than I will probably run that one also. I never noticed any slow downs or problems being caused after I used any of their Removal tools. The tool has been improved over time and continues to remove more leftovers. I would just rely on their tool and leave the Registry alone. This latest version is the best one yet.

P.S. By Jamin4u request, I do want to confirm that this tool can be used after Norton has been uninstalled. I uninstalled Norton about a year ago and have successfully used the updated tool at least twice since then with no problems. The tool removed remnants that had not been removed by prior versions. :P

I had made a windows and revo uninstaller mix to remove this norton and did not resolve,now I think worked,but I am testing the system because I had to re-install my mini modem software.

 

I intend to install a new set of security softwares.

 

Thanks

Are you going to try the Norton Removal Tool?

 

The Norton Removal Tool uninstalls all Norton 2009/2008/2007/2006/2005/2004/2003 products, Norton 360 and Norton SystemWorks 12.0 from your computer. If you use ACT! or WinFAX, back up those databases before you proceed.

Hello again,

You can also follow the advice in this Piriform thread provided by our anit-malware experts on the forums.

You can find discussions on many of these things on the forums.

What Jamin4u suggested is an excellent start.

Hi Wagner,

You are a smart user to ask advice on a safe forum such as this one.

Until you learn more and get yourself protected properly, I advise you ,like a good friend, to stick with what you find here on this forum. There are many "bad sites" and "Rogue software" out there right now that it is dangerous to go Searching on the Internet. One click and you can be seriously infected.

 

The Piriform members have teseted and know what is the best on the market.
