Forgot password

I have a problem,I forgot my Norton Security password so now I can't change its settings.Does that mean I will have to unistall Norton from my PC and install it again?.Also I got my current version of Norton from its site because my other version stopped working so I do not have a disc to reinstall it. I'm thinking on buying another one because this one  is about to expire anyway.All of this started because I tried to run live updated and it failed,this never happened before,it told me to do something with my proxy setting but I can't do it because I forgot my password for the settings.But I also thought since I never had I problem with that before them why mess up with that.That's why I'm thinking on starting form scratch with a new one.Any way back to my question Can I just unistall my current Norton and get I new one so I can delete whatever password I had on it?           Thank You

Re: Forgot password

The best thing you can do is uninstall this version. Download NIS2009 from www.norton.com/nis09 and you will be fine

Re: Forgot password

If you go to Control Panel > Add/Remove > Norton Intetnet Security > Add/Remove, does it give you an Option to change the Password or just to un-install?

 

Also, what Norton Internet Security Version are you using?
