How do I uninstall Norton

I need a solution to getting Norton uninstalled. If I want to renew "My Norton" gets right through. Anything else there is a server error. The uninstall file is now all about installing and renewing. Bull crap.

If you are running the Norton Remove and Reinstall tool, click Advanced Options for the option to uninstall only.

Re: How do I uninstall Norton

Thank you but this uninstalls and reinstalls. I want Norton gone. Uninstall in the control panel just goes to a Norton subscribe page and when closing the page it closes the control panel. Leaving the page open and the uninstall doesn't work. The Norton uninstall file is now all about installing Norton. Not a think about uninstalling. I also want it completely uninstalled. Mcafee was on the computer when I bought it and I uninstalled it and I'm still uninstalling it. Every time I reboot it's back. From the firewall log I can see they are still accessing my computer. BTW, a firewall log that Norton help told me I couldn't get to. With Norton, I can take control of ownership Norton but I still can't access or take control of anything and I can't permanently delete access to some. This is under details and then security. This is my computer and I want it back. I want a choice in who can deactivate and reactivate my firewall. Norton right now wants to control my computer but deny access to their support because my subscription has expired--my choice to let it lapse. From the firewall log I saw that Norton was doing things their support told me they couldn't do. And today, I went to download a program protected by Norton and Norton refused it as unsafe and there is no way around this unwanted intrusion from Norton. The program is needed to run a Ford diagnostic program. The access to Ford is expensive and Norton should be paying for it now along with paying me for my computer.

Re: How do I uninstall Norton

I sadly found out that the Remove and Reinstall tool doesn't Really uninstall NS (uninstall Option, downloaded from Norton)- It only hides it, and my Programs/Program Data folders!- I had to go into Safe Mode/ Show Hidden/ Search & Shift/Delete Everything Norton (3 Times, to get it all...!).

The best way to Uninstall Norton- Safe Mode With Networking, Then Run Uninstall Norton (Run as Admin!) from All Programs menu, then Reboot normally 5 times (45min each- your HD lights Will go Nuts flashing!. Then as with Any System change it won't Fully take effect until After the next Cold startup, & 4 more reboots!

The Remove option works well enough, if you want to install the alternative of your choice.

Certain information is always going to be retained, such as the licensing information in case you reinstall your product.

The Remove Option doesn't delete entire Norton Folder/drivers...

Show Hidden, and Search Norton if you doubt what I Know from Bad experience...
