Hi, i have finally stopped using Norton, it had really given me problems. I have made the switch to McAfee. Norton is still on my computer, but just set as 'disabled', and i have to disable it each time i log onto my computer. I keep getting an error called 'Symantec Email Proxy' coming up, with no error information, just 'OK'.

How do i (either):
-Stop this error and always have it disabled (without having to do the necessary steps each time i log on.
-completely remove Norton

Hi there St Anger,
To remove Norton, I would suggest that you go to symantec.com/techsupp/
select home & office (if applicable)>access free online support>complete steps 1,2,&3>then type in the words uninstall
It's very involved, depending on your version is very important on how you remove Norton and Symantec
I personally printed everything pretaining to the removal and the procedures.
You may have to disable McAfee first, and reactivate Norton for removal, I'm not sure :thumbsup: .Make sure you are off line when you remove it, then do a defrag. I hate Norton, it gives me fits.
Good luck,
