Why can't I remove Norton Internet Security from my computer?
Our trial version of IS2010 expired a whle ago on the notebook that we purchaseded in October. We connected online the other day and Norton started giving us warning messages about viruses, spyware, and being attacked by an external computer. Now I'm pretty sure that these were false messages designed to make us freak out and buy the upgrade/full Norton antivirus. We got a background picture that was a green warning picture that couldn't be removed from my background. Even after disconnecting from the internet, we were getting messages that we were under attack from an external computer. Now we had only opened up a couple of e-mails and none of them had attachments, yet Norton was saying that there were a dozen or so different viruses all of a sudden on this computer. I tried removing Norton, but there was still a folder that showed up called IS2010 that we could not delete. I restored the computer to Jan 19 and now Norton does not give me the warning messages (thankfully), but I still cannot remove the program in any way (either through add/remove programs or using the Norton uninstaller) There is at least one file that will not allow me to manually delete it (a .dll file) I want the program OFF my computer NOW!
