I have uninstalled Norton and replaced with free AVG anti-virus.Will the program scan automatically or should I do so manually.If I have to do it manually can someone suggest how this is done.Perhaps I need to configure the Pc? Thanks in anticipation
I removed Norton using the option provided by control panel.I run Windows XP and used the add/remove programs option as directed by Nortons help box.Have I done enough to eliminate totally.this is directed at Buteman
Just to clarify I have sorted AVG and I believe I have removed Norton from my PC.It is no longer listed under programs and I removes it using advice from Norton .I went to Remove programs via the control panel and uninstalled it.Buteman will confirm whether I have done the right thing
If you look in Windows Explorer you will almost certainly find Symantec or Norton folders listed under Peogram files. Norton is notoriously difficult to remove without registry editing, even after using their removal tools. The only guarenteed complete removal is a reinstall, although I understand that this may sound drastic. NEVER again will anything produced by Symantec be allowed within a mile of my computer.
