Norton Antivirus removal

My friend has XP Home on a Dell desktop. Did an uninstall and Symantec windows kept popping up. Symantec tech support wants THIRTY BUCKS to help her remove the remnants on her machine. So I thought someone here could offer assistance. Any would be appreciated.

I must say that's interesting...they create a small program to remove their products and make it freely available on their website but then charge you to tell you the URL. Plain

In any case, just click here and download SymNRT, the Symantec Norton Removal Tool. After that's been run click here to download/run RegSeeker, which will clean up any remnants SymNRT leaves behind in the registry.

That'll be $30. Grin
