Completely Removing Norton From A Machine
I recently had to deal with a customerís machine who had a Norton product installed on it which simply would not allow us to install a piece of software. After much troubleshooting and unsuccessfully trying to disable the Norton protection, we simply decided to uninstall it in order to get the installation done.
Unfortunately, going to Add/Remove programs in Windows didnít do the trick, so after some quick searching I found the Norton Removal Tool http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT...05033108162039. After downloading and running this, Norton seemingly was removed from the system and allowed us to install the software.
I do find it very ironic that this tool is distributed in the exact same manner as their malware removal tools.
