  1. Go to the Norton website and find the Norton Removal Tool, that is most effective I believe.
  2. sounds like you have some slow low end computers

    control pannel -> add remove programs / programs features

    or as Chugot9218 said removal tool if all else fails

    it does work great i have used it many times
  3. +1^

    Replace it with microsoft security essentials. It is free, low overhead and unobtrusive.
  4. Get the non 360 version of Norton.Norton antivirus and nis are 2 of the lightest suites on the market today.
  5. I had the same problem with Norton 360. I have asked on Norton forums too. I've found a tool named Norton Removal Tool http://www.place77.com/norton-removal-tool-40780.html

    I have removed completely.
  6. Yes Norton is a PITA to remove a lot of the time. Any program that needs a specific removal tool to remove it is bad in my book. You should be able to remove anything using an Admin account.

    Microsoft security essentials works well. Its Free and I have never had any issues with it.

    Mactronix :)
  7. New versions from 2009 ,and up require no tool to remove.
  8. I think you mean should require no removal tool ?

    The main issue I run into is that Norton has never and I mean never successfully uninstalled from any machine I have removed it from without resorting to the removal tool.
    I guess that's why they supply the tool, because people do need it. Maybe not everyone, but a lot do and its usually because it wont let go without a fight.

    Mactronix :)
  9. I don't recommend the 360 versions.I like NIS myself.
