I've looked around the web at post about how to completely untinstall Norton AntiVirus (my subscription's expired and it keeps popping up saying that programs I have allowed in their exclusions tab are trying to access the computer and detecting components of them as viruses. Some of the methods say to go to add/remove and untinstall everything marked Norton, Symantec, and LiveUpdate. I do wish to keep Norton Ghost and I think that uses LiveUpdate. Should I remove AntiVirus but keep LiveUpdate or uninstall all of it including Ghost and reinstall that?

Read the discussion topic "How To Remove Your Norton Products"

If uninstalling Norton via Add/Remove Programs does not work properly, then download and run the Norton Removal Tool (SymNRT). (uninstalls ALL Norton 2008/2007/2006/2005/2004/2003 products from your computer).
