Go to the Norton website and find the Norton Removal Tool, that is most effective I believe.

Replace it with microsoft security essentials. It is free, low overhead and unobtrusive.

Get the non 360 version of Norton.Norton antivirus and nis are 2 of the lightest suites on the market today.

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.

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.
