Hi Everyone,

Can anyone help ? I used the remove option in control panel to try and remove Norton Internet Security 2007 as i now have this free with my BT Broadband. It ran for ages and seemed to hang...After about an hour I cancelled it as it appeared to have finished. But the software is still visible in the Control Panel and when i try remove again it says it needs to create an error log to send to Symantec. Can anyone point me to a different tool to use ? This is quite urgent as I am now unprotected. I am running windows XP.

Many thanks

Nick

Before anything else, what kind of tool did you use? Ideally, you should use the uninstaller that comes along with your norton package. But if you don't have it, try using this norton internet security 2007 removal tool from Symantec.

Norton Removal Tool

Use the Norton Removal Tool to remove a failed installation or a damaged Norton product. The Norton Removal Tool uninstalls all Norton 2003 and later products, Norton 360, and Norton SystemWorks 12.0 from your computer. If you use ACT! or WinFAX, back up those databases before you proceed.

The steps differ depending on what product you have.
