Norton now acts like malware when I uninstall it permanently.
I began seeing two icons again recently so decided I’d had enough of Norton & its problems which automatically ran the repair tool so ran the remove & reinstall tool & chose to remove only, after I’d restarted I received a pop-up offering to reinstall the product!
There wasn’t any choice to refuse, just install or remind me later, I had to download it & I removed the icons from the desktop but that wasn’t enough as when I restarted again another pop-up appeared asking me to install.
I found the files within explorer & deleted them & out of curiosity I ran my Revo Uninstaller pro to find any files Norton had left behind, I didn’t think it would find anything as I’d used the removal tool but I was shocked to see it find numerous files, folders & registry entries. I ran the tools several times & it found remnants every time.
Eventually it found no more but I’m very disappointed in Norton & I’ve been using it since my first PC in 1998.
