General discussion



I'm not sure if I'm posting to the correct place; this is my first time. I have a Dell Dimension 8300 with Windows XP. It came with Norton Internet Security installed. (OEM) I'd like to be able to uninstall just the Norton Firewall and keep only the Norton AntiVirus part. I can't find any information on this; I've emailed Dell, but they do not know. Symantec is of no help either. So, I'm just stuck/lost. How can I do this? Has anyone ever done this before? Also, I thought maybe I could download the trial version of Norton AntiVirus online and then enter some type of product key to get the full version, but I can not find/I don't know where my "product key" is. I've tried using the CD's Customize Install, but it doesn't have the option for unintalling every except for NAV. Any help, please...Thank you!

Instead of trying to split AV off NIS (which I don't think you can do), simply turn off the features you do not want and leave AV running.

that if you start to uninstall Norton, it will give you a list and a choice of what to uninstall, parts or all.

Yeah, that's what I thought, but it doesn't work that way...Sad Thanks for the idea though...
