Dear all.

I just installed Norton Personal Firewall 2005 for security reasons, I
uninstalled it but Windows XP detects always the Norton Firewall ON.
I dowloaded a tool to remove all Symantec programs when Add/Remove Programs
does not work but the same appears.
There is a way to delete it definitly from the register or by using a tool?

Thanks in advanced.
Henry

Hi,

Click start/run and type services.msc, then click ok. See if there is any
trace of the Norton/Symantec firewall running here.

Just a few other "Cleanup" steps to consider:

Add/Remove Programs - check for Symantec WMI update also
remove Live Update and LiveReg.

Do a full system search for Symantec - Likely you'll find at least 2
or more Symantec folders (Remove all, if NO other Symantec or
Norton programs remain on your system.

Finally, Symantec/Norton installs a number of items in the Device
Manager Non-Plug and Play category. You'll need to check/tic
the View option "Show Hidden Devices". Most of the entries will
be named Sym---, Like SymTDI. To verify you need to double
click an entry. When the details box opens, Click the Driver (TAB)
and then Driver Details button. Check/note the "Provider" line, if
it says "Symantec Corporation" - Uninstall that driver.
Even with all this you'll still have a fairly large number of entries in
the Registry that will remain.
