Hi I am getting rid of Norton and want to know if just deleting it will be enough or will i have to use the removal tool? will be doing it next week sometime so just getting few suggestions b4 i do thanks
use the removal tool i had symantec products installed and used windows to uninstall and had all sorts of problems i had to reinstall the software download and use the removal tool which worked with no problems.
No. I download a free firewall like Commodo in a zipped file and also download a free AV program also in a zipped form to my desktop. Then I download the norton removal tool and download that to my desktop. I then disconnect from the internet and use the norton uninstaller tool to uninstall norton security after I disable the norton firewall, antivirus, etc. Then I 'extract' the firewall and antivirus program I previously installed on my desktop in a zipped form. These programs start to work and then I connect to the internet again for these security programs to run and update. Another free program for security is an antispyware program called Spyware Terminator which you can also save to desktop prior to getting rid of Norton.
