May 26th is a public holiday here in the USA so I would expect it will take a while for Norton Staffers here to catch up with the backlog and check out your report.

Re: Norton Removal Tool damage Vista Registry


The fix has been checked in to the English build (which can remove the German product) here.

We should have a German updated posted within the next 24 hours.  I will post when the new build is available.

Thanks jgreen .

Re: Norton Removal Tool damage Vista Registry

Hi again. Apologies for my late reply - the German build has been up for a few hours now. You can download the new version from any German knowledge base article that links to the tool, or you can grab it from our FTP server here.
