How to uninstall Norton Internet Security

Hi

 

I haven't activated it. It continues with 60 days to test  (It's a new PC)

 

I have windows 8 64 bits

 

The windows uninstall shows a window without buttons (after I have to kill the process)

I've tried to execute the removal tool but it don't works (it doesn't execute)

 

How I can to uninstall Norton?

 

Thanks

Interesting question .... I haven't even looked for Remove Programs in Windows 8. I'll try to check in a while.

 

Are you working from the Start Screen or from the Desktop? Have you tried WINKEY + I which should take you to the Settings Search utility and searching on Remove Programs ?

Re: How to uninstall Norton Internet Security

I just checked in my Windows 8 64 bit Enterprise version and using Search / Settings > Uninstall Programs I see a normal window of the kind I'm used to in earlier versions of Windows and Norton Internet Security is listed. Right Mouse Click > Uninstall is there.

I'm not sure whether you are not seeing this or if the Remove is not working.

 

If you do not se NIS in the Uninstall Windows that can be because the uninstall began but was not successfully completed.

 

Can you give a bit more information including how you got the Norton Removal Tool if that is what you mean by the "removal tool" or do you mean what this image shows?

Hi.

 

Try reinstalling it then hopefully it will show up in the uninstall/remove a program window.

 

Good luck :smileywink:.

A good suggestion but I was waiting for the OP to say what he was seeing since I did not understand his "no buttons" ....
