trouble re norton

You may have to reinstall Norton and then use the norton remover.

Avast is a good free virus protection program.

Default Norton antivirus removal

Don't panic - you are much better off without it!

To get this wretched programme off your pc you must remove it from the Registry. To do this effectively use a programme called Registry Crawler - one installed you have 30 day full licence. Just type in "Norton", highlight all the found entries and DELETE, then type "Symantec" - highlight all entries and delete.


Install AVG Free antivirus

Or you can also try finding softwares that help you to definitely uninstall softwares and get rid of them, you can try Unlocker, Your Uninstall, Easy uninstaller, but do not install Norton in your computer again.
