Possibly from the manufacturer, when you bought it as the 'free trial' offer?

Apparently it DID come with Norton. Either that or space aliens invaded your home in the dead of the night and morphed those files onto your hard drive.

Virtually ALL of the manufacturers have sold out to that virus called Norton and include a trial version on their computers. Since they mass produce everything, they also mass download the software. WHether or not the trial offer is "booted" the software (as you can see) is still loaded.

Determine which version of Norton these files are. Then download this:
http://service1.symantec.com/Support/tsgen...005033108162039

Run the tool, reboot and then check for files still on the HD. You can then safely delete them.

* I have pcAnywhere or WinFax

My guess would be to open the readme file that is displayed in your image to figure out which product this is. Then download the appropriate file from the list you have after learning which product it is.

You have Norton 2008, so go here:

http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/norto...&view=docid

If you don't plan on reinstalling or ever using Norton again, just skip to Step 3.

Holy moses Norton just made it even more difficult to get rid of their virus didn't they? They have ONE removal tool that works on all versions. I didtrust the fact that they now make you jump through so many hoops to be rid of their infestation.

EDIT: Samuel, click the canadian dude's link. Go STRAIGHT to step 3 and click the orange button that says download. Download and save the tool and then run it. DON'T SAVE ANYTHING ELSE. As soon as you finish running the tool, delete it. Go back to that folder (if it still exists) and delete it in it's entirety.
