    i know norton and associated products have been talked about here before but i wondered if anyone had found a comprehensive guide to completely mac it off.

    the reason being im trying to help a mate in canada who is a little bit overwhelmed with crap on his system and NAV is being corrupted , don't fancy trying to talk him through the registry so.....any help would be appreciated as per guys.

    as for the virus, i talked him thru hijackthis etc so fingers crossed it's vamoosed. :tongue

    Norton has pages on their site on how to remove their products. In some cases you may have to download a special 'nuke' utility!
    It is *vital* though to identify correctly which norton product you have.

    first time i wrestled with norton it was 2004 security package, i tried the sites which seemed ok but also seemed to leave a lot or reg entries cluttering around. i'll go have a peek tho harry, cheers.

    Moom, it is a very highly rated AV app. You should give it a test drive, as unlike Norton, it is not bloated, doesn't hog system resources, performs fast scans and finds more evil criters than most others.

    It's not free after the trial period but it's not too expensive.

    yeah, it seems people like it or hate it... From what i have seen of Norton it slows the machine right down...
