Stand-alone Norton Removal Tool

Before creating this, I searched and found a huge mass of evidence that the old Stand-Alone Removal Tool has gone, having been replaced by the Norton Removal & Reinstall Tool.

I'm currently trying to resolve a "long- running script" problem that's causing headaches with my outlook - the MSComm experts have been very helpful, and very patient. In their guide to resolve the problem they include removing several Apps and later reinstalling when the cause has been identified. One of these Apps is my Norton and they say that the old stand-alone NRT is still available, here: http://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/removal_tools/Norton_Removal_Tool.exe

Live and learn! But I'm still confused.

PS It must be me but I can't a label for Norton Security or Safe/Vault.

Re: Stand-alone Norton Removal Tool

The standard Norton remove & reinstall also has a feature to just remove instead of uninstalling. I agree that we should have easier access to a simple removal tool, but I think for user convenience NR&RT was developed because a lot of issues can be solved with a simple reinstallation.

Re: Stand-alone Norton Removal Tool

Hi both - thanks for your comments. I've just successfully removed my Norton using the link in my initial post but now I'm b*ggared (= beggared, a technical term). The link to reinstall Norton was this htm doc:

None of the links work! So I went to my Norton Security with Backup icon to see if I could reinstall it from there - but that says the shortcut no longer exists (of course). So is there any other way for me to reinstall my NSB?

PS Windows Defender is protecting me at the moment

Sign In to your Norton account and download pre-activated installer.
