Were you given software disks with the computer for office and norton. If so, run them and an option may come up to remove the installation. You may have to run the setup program on the disk to get this.

Otherwise, if you have a recovery disk and you don't yet have data on the C drive, run the recovery disk. This returns the computer toits factory state and may return the uninstall options.
