Norton on new laptop

  Graham. 12:04 31 Aug 2008

My friend has the inevitable Norton trial on his new laptop, which he wants to dump. As he hasn't used it, should the Removal tool click here be used?

I have always uninstalled it from add/remove programmes without any bother but he can use the removal tool.

My wife had Macafee on her laptop and I did the same as GANDALF <|:-)> and then did a search for any odd bits and pieces left behind.

Thanks, both. I will pass it on.

I find that the best method is to accept the trial offer when prompted and install it - then remove it via Add/Remove. Otherwise the trial version keeps offering to install itself on top of your chosen AV.

Let him download this program it will and remove ALL trail ware programs that you don’t want

click here

McAfee free trial, Office 2007, Google Desktop, AOL, Google Side Bar, Norton Free Trial etc

and any other crap ware that have been install on the laptop as only using up hard drive space
