Online Backup Removal

I recently purchased a new PC with Norton Internet Security (19.2.0.10) installed.  It came with a trial for Norton Online Backup which I don't want since I backup to physical media locally.  I could stand the messages telling me that I was out of space for the trial; however, the trial is now over and Norton keeps nagging me to pay for it.  I can't find how to turn these messages off.  Does anyone know how to turn these anoying messages off?  I don't mind the "scan completed" messages, but don't want to be constantly marketed to.

Re: Online Backup Removal

There is a specific Forum for Norton OnLine Backup so I'll ask for your message to be moved over there or better exposure. You won't lose sight of it because a link will be left here.

Re: Online Backup Removal

I too would like the persistent Backup signup reminders to stop

I tried the NOBU progam uninstall  (Samsung CORE i3 laptop, Win 7 Home Premium SP1)

 - but it never completes, usually timing out

Nor can I stop the process or service using Task Manager.. permission is refused

What else can I try?

Re: Online Backup Removal

I don't have Norton backup in my Control panel  are you sure you are not referring to the Software program of Norton Backup and not the Norton 360 version as I can't stop the large RED alert that I have to log in to use online backup through Norton 360 and I don't want to backup online as I only have a 5GB download/upload Internet plan

Hi

   To stop the NOBU subscription alert please remove the Norton Online Backup entry from the startup: Open Run(Win key + r)-> type msconfig -> Startup Tab -> Remove the check mark next to the Norton Online Backup.

Re: Online Backup Removal

Click on setting and then

Click on Administrative settings

Check for an option called Product State monitoring  about half way down the list

Click on Configure to the right

Under Miscellaneous un tick Backup box and click on OK then close

This worked for me
