Norton PC Checkup - how remove, what use?

How to completely remove Norton PC Checkup and not create other problems, and what is the realistic, meaningful use of Norton PC Checkup?    Norton 360 has been on the computer for more than 4 years (or three years - not sure), and PC Checkup was put on shortly after the install of Norton 360, but not known why or how.  The computer with these is in Windows 7.

Can you find an entry in Control Panel? If so just uninstall from there.

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

Also, if you check in Windows Start > All Programs > Norton PC Checkup, is there an uninstall link there?

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

The item for "uninstall" IS also listed in the Start menu.  

My question is, anything else to know about completely removing, and what is the meaningful use for PC Checkup?  Like, anything good or advantageous in keeping the program installed?

I already saw the wikipedia article.  IS THE PROGRAM USEFUL OR ADVANTAGEOUS FOR SOMETHING IMPORTANT?  WHAT ELSE MUST BE DONE TO COMPLETELY UNINSTALL PC CHECKUP OTHER THAN "UNINSTALL" FROM CONTROL PANEL?

If you want a more thorough uninstall, then use REVO Uninstaller.

If you have a Norton anti-virus program installed there is no benefit of keeping Norton PC Checkup.  In my opinion it is little more than an advertisement for Norton products and services.

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

Krusty13,

That helps.  At least I can/should-be-able-to uninstall it through Control Panel and that should be enough. 

I am not comfortable using any fancy software uninstall tool like REVO.  I'm not so advanced.
