I cannot get the Norton Spyware Scan -Yahoo! to remove from my computer. I have been having the issue ever since I downloaded the yahoo toolbar or yahoo beta mail to my pc. I am not sure which one, but I have removed both programs from my pc, and still cannot get rid of Norton. I have checked in the add/remove programs list, and it is still there no matter what I do, but does not have a remove button on it. There is no button on it at all, even for more info.
I have searched my pc for Norton, NAV, Symantec, and anything else to do with this program and have deleted all to do with it.
I downloaded Nortons removal tool and used it, then deleted it, and still there.
I have even followed instructions from "Dave Taylor" website to delete from registry and still there.
I downloaded CCleaner to get rid of any leftover info on my pc, and still there.
Nothing exists on my pc that I can find except that damn Norton in add/remove programs, and unsure what else to do, but I need it gone because it is really slowing down everything.
Anyone have any other ideas on what to do?
Could this possibly be spyware itself disguising itself as this program?
I have ran my antivirus program, PC_Cillin, and found nothing.
I have ran Spybot and ad-aware, and smitfraudfix, and they are finding nothing.
What can I do? It is driving me crazy!
Don't make me mad, or I'll stab you with my gun!
