A while back someone (R. Profitt?) told me not to delete Norton System Works (which I foolishly clicked on when starting my new HP laptop after having a disaster with my suddenly dead Dell). I understand why Norton is crap. I used to use the old DOS version which was wonderful, really saved me at least three times in the old days.
Now, my trial subscription has run out and I really do want this crapware off my computer so I can use AVG or anything, anything but some crap you pay for (and get ripped off by). How do I delete Norton safely and I mean delete, really clean Norton and all its drips and drabs it leaves behind in the registry? I'd like to delete the other bloatware safely, too - you know, AOL, etc. And what the heck is Vongo? I haven't clicked on it but it must be bloatware too.
Anyway, please advise with the safest and most complete method(s) for cleaning this garbage out of my laptop.
