Yes,I have tried downloading from where you indicate and all I get is a blank page with a little pane at the bottom which is streaming green and saying(when I put the mouse over it) 'Phising filter is checking this website' I have left it for hours and it remains the same.

Try Tools > Phishing filter and turn the filter off.

I have done as you have suggested but I am not sure that it has worked since it seemed to be instantaneous.If it has worked, where has the download gone to and how do I use it to remove Norton Internet security 2006?

The last time I used the removal tool (on a friend's system), I uninstalled the Norton 2006 package as much as possible and then ran the removal tool.

You should find the NRT in your downloads temporary folder or to wherever you download files.
