So I downloaded the Norton Removal Tool a number of months ago, but never got around to using it because I'm going to be getting a replacement laptop. However, the replacement will also come with some trial version of Norton (that's not fully installed, but you still need to remove it, which I will). So I'll probably need to run the Norton Removal Tool just to be safe, right?

So I noticed that the tool I already had downloaded is Version 2007.2.4.12 -- then when I went and downloaded it again (because I read there was some new version), I see that this is true and the new one says it's Version 2008.0.0.21.

So what's the difference?

I'm guess I should use the most recent one when I get my new laptop in the mail, but I just wanted to make sure there wasn't something weird and that the new version wasn't as good or something...

Thanks!

I have not heard anything bad about the latest version of the Norton Removal Tool. I would imagine that they update it from time to time to cover new Norton products and to fix any bugs that have been discovered. So if I were you I would go for the latest version.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
