Norton Removal Tool

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I bought a new HP Pavilion computer with Vista 32 bits.  It had Norton's
Internet Security, trial version, bundled in it as it came.  After about one
month, I decided to uninstall it and get another security program (not
Norton).  I recently heard I uninstalled it wrong.  For Norton, you have to
get a special removal tool from their website when you uninstall Internet
Security and other similar Norton programs.  I didn't do it.  Neither Norton
or HP told me up front of this before I used the uninstall program in
Control Panel.

Any comments or suggestions?  Is it too late to now try to use the Norton
removal tool.  If so, I'm not sure whether it was Norton Internet Security
2009 or 2008; would it make a difference?  Would appreciate a reply if
anyone knows what I should do.  It may be affecting the AV program I
installed after I uninstalled the Norton.

PS - I tried to email these questions to Norton, but, believe it or not,
their website has no email address to contact them.  Apparently, they don't
want to be bothered.

Norton does have a forum where most of your questions will be answered.

No. Go get the tool and run it.

A friend of mine had the Norton Virus installed on her PC when she
bought it  and it ran like a dog.  The above removal tool was the only
way to get rid of it.  Installed Avast and the PC sped up by about 25%

With past versions it was recommended to use the add/remove programs to
uninstall Norton products and *then* use their uninstallation tool. I
believe that is still the case.

To check your PC for "crap" software, use PC-Decrapifier:
http://www.pcdecrapifier.com /
"The PC Decrapifier will uninstall many of the common trialware and
annoyances found on many of the PCs from big name OEMs."

Norton Removal Tool can be downloaded:

Run it (for all versions of Norton products)
