how to remove Norton anti virus from my PC?

Hi, the 3 month trial i got with my computer is coming to an end so gonna download AVG free but how do I go about removing Norton from my PC? Do I simply go to add/remove programs and delete it all from there?

Actually its recommended to use the Norton Removal tool since bits are left over otherwise.

Dettol and a wire brush...

You'll also need to run Nortons removal tool - had it on one of our PC's … You'll also need to run Nortons removal tool - had it on one of our PC's & couldn't install AVG after normal uninstall as it still had bits left on system.http://service1.symantec.com/Support/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/Uninstallers/Norton-Removal-Tool.shtmlGoogle removal options though, as there's quite a few additional suggestions available. eg.http://windowssecrets.com/2008/02/07/01-Symantec-uninstaller-may-not-finish-the-job:thumbsup:




So do i go to add remove programs first then use the norton removal tool or forget add/remove and just use the norton tool?

All you need is this

Uninstall using norton removal tool. Once you do that you dont need to use ad/remove programs

This is why I never install/use garbage such as Mcafee and Norton.
