Ok well rather than typing out my problem twice I have quote what I have written in the other thread - though I have quoted within the post:
I don't know if it is just my computer but the link you have posted here doesn't seem to be working for me - though I get the feeling the symantec site is down at the moment - its just so hard to tell these days cause my computer/norton has been giving me so much grief these last few days I can never really tell if its a problem from my end or their end.
not to worry i will give you a link and what ever version you have got
just have a good read and download the Removing your Norton program using SymNRT
here is the link:-
Either way I have a much in the same problem that PhantomaZero mentioned:I'm at the point where I just want everything Norton off my computer and when I go to uninstall NIS it seems to half uninstall then its stuff up when trying to remove the firewall aspect of the program then I get the "Firewall is turned off" security alert, I have somehow through this process managed to stop the "internet proctection is turned off" security alert, but I still can't manage to unistall Norton. I'm also finding the other symantec programs that I'm trying to remove come up with errors like "acn't be removed at this time due to yarda yarda" Please help, I'm open to any advice at this stage - I just want to get all teh Norton stuff off to reinstall it from scratch or opt for another AV program.
I'm looking into getting rid of Norton right now then, thanks!
EDIT: The half uninstallation incident I experienced seems to have corrupted Norton, it won't start up.
Okay, here's my current situation:
I've managed to disable the security alerts. But now a lot of my internet demanding programs that require a secure connection (email, games, credit card transactions) won't function.
I'm pretty sure its not a virus, I've got AVG updated and run regular scans.
I'm currently runnning XP and the program in question is NIS 2004.
