Norton Family Easily Removed

I liked the software a lot, but seems too easy to remove in Windows

Just open regedit.exe then go: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services
look for the keys:
NSM
TampMon
SymDS
SymEvent
SYMRDR

and delete them, reboot or stop running proccess (NF.exe and TampMon.exe) and you are whiout protection

The only workaround for this problem is to set the user account to normal user. But it will be nice to have some protection against it, because some people cant work without an admin account.
Thanks.

Re: Norton Family Easily Removed

Hi massaki,

Thanks for sharing the information with us.  To avoid and limit the possibility to tamper/disable the system,  We recommend parents to give non-administrative rights (limited or restricted) to their child’s user account and keep the password for your Norton Online Family account away from the child.

With Administrative rights, the child can pretty much do anything (tamper, remove and uninstall) any parental programs.  To deal with the scenario, the Norton Family program sends an alert notification to the parent when the program is tampered.

Thanks

Katie

 

Thanks Katie
