That's right.  You can't end Norton in Task Manager.

What folder or file are you trying to delete?

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.

This is by design. If you could stop Norton, so could malware. Norton Product Tamper Protection stops any outside influences from accessing or changing any Norton assets.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

Re: Need to end norton in task manager

So why are you tying to end end Norton in Task Manager?

Perhaps if you give us a bit more detail we can assist but it is hard when we can't see your machine and you haven't given us a lot to go on.  You could also mention which version of what Norton product you are using and your Operating System details.

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.

Hello

Try finding the game in Programs and Features and delete it that way. It is probably in a folder with Steam contents since you most likely got it from Steam or at least indirectly. Have you scanned this game with your Norton product? Is that why it is in Norton? Has Norton said that it was malware and that it is in quarantine perhaps? I think I am trying to read minds here since there isn't very much to go on as krusty has mentioned.

Hello Nathan

Norton probably quarantined it. See if you can do something with it when in safe mode. Try doing a search for it.
