Remove Norton PC Checkup
I have a Toshiba Sattelite P755 running Windows 7. Norton PC Checkup is installed on it, and I would like to remove it. I've done this before (I remember it was quite a pain) and cannot remember how. Pretty sure I got this with a Shockwave installer, despite trying to be very careful to NOT install it.
What I've tried so far:
1.) Just deleting it's folder. Says it's open in another program. There is a service showing up for it in my task manager with no associated process.
2.) Tried to uninstall it through the control panel. Does not show up as an installed program.
3.) Norton Removal Tool does not remove it.
So, anyone have any suggestions that aren't one of those three things?
Also, can anyone give me any suggestions for not letting Norton install this thing on my computer ever again? I'm getting tired of removing it every time it comes bundled with some other software...
