Norton Installation Files

I use to have Norton Internet Security with Backup up until November of this year I just purchased Norton Security and WiFi Privacy when I downloaded the Norton Internet Security before it downloaded it ran a program to remove the Norton Internet Security with backup.So if it removed  the the other one why do  I have in my Public Downloads folder under Norton  2 other file folders of the old subscriptions one from 6/6/17 and one from 6/8/17 and also a Shortcut for Norton from 4/9/17 besides the new subscription of Norton that I just downloaded on 11/4 /17 if  the old versons were suppose to have been deleted before it installed the new Norton Internet Security I just purchased in November and should I delete them now ?

Re: Norton Installation Files

Hi, surfergirl. You can safely delete the old installation files.

If the new Norton Security is running as it should, the old files are no longer required.

However, in previous times I have attempted to delete old Norton files manually and Norton has blocked it !

They're still happily sitting there on C drive/Program Data, and only about 5MB so I'm ignoring them !
