What did you do first? Have your tried doing a system restore? Do you have the installation disk? With the error messages you are getting, you may need to reinstall it to uninstall it properly.

I had NIS factory installed on a new computer I bought. I had a time getting it completely removed. I started by uninstalling it through add/remove programs. Then I did a search and deleted all folders with either Norton or Symantec. And I finally had to remove all entries for Symantec in the registry. It was only after I did that was I able to install NAV which I had purchased earlier.

Uninstalling NIS2005

I wish I could suggest something easy! I had the same problem, and I finally fixed it by performing my first system recovery. Now everything works much better, including NIS. I don't know why NIS is such a problem. I tried to reinstall because the live update feature was not working. Now it works fine. I hope you are using another firewall until you get it fixed.

Removing NIS

This is apparently a common problem. Go to symantec.co site for instructions. Cut and pass the following link--hopefully it will get you to the right place. If not, you will have to go to symantec.com-->support and navigate your way. Good luck--this is a hard program to get rid of.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
