If he got a trial version without a disk, try add/remove programs. If he has a disk, use the uninstall option in it. If all else fails, delete the Norton / Symantec folder and run a good registry cleaner like RegSeeker. click here
IS norton A/V really that obtrusive that you have to resort to all manner of uninstallers to get rid of it, this product is supposed to be the leader in its field but i am amazed at the ammount of posts there are regarding NAV wont do this or that, i don't see many people defend this product, isn't it about time Norton streamlined there product to suit everyday home-users. AVG seem to have got it right........
is a file it puts in one of the system startup i.e config - or sys.ini - and after removel that is still there - and your computer won't boot - then it's starting in DOS and trying to edit said file - I got rid of it and now us avg ;)
