NIS2005 came up with an error it told me to uninstall and reinstall it so i uninstalled it and when it restart its still there but comes up with aload of errors saying that some files are missing to start the programm- i was wondering if someone can tell me what registry files i need to delete to get uninstall the programm as it wont uninstall in add/remove programms and when inserting the CD it tells me to uninstall it manualy! so if someone could be kind enough to tell me all the reg files and any other files i need to delete to get rid of this you would be a star thanks LivEviL

Get rid of its program folders for starters, then use CCleaner to try to shift the old reg entries. Note my use of the word "try". NIS2005 is reckoned to be quite difficult to shift.

Someone who has had the same experience could probably advise you further.

ok,if you`ve uninstalled and theres some parts left...usually,if you type norton into search and delete all that it finds,it will do the trick.norton doesnt like being removed,and it can hardly ever remove found virus,you usualy have to go online and find something to remove it.my advice would be,to not re-install,but to install avg as its free and works fine

no iv tried all the norton stuff on the site they say they have uninstalled but then when i restart it does the same as before
i shall keep AVG in mind

have you tried..start-search...then type in norton.whatever it finds,you have to right click and delete
