I have a program on my HP windows 7 laptop called "Activate Norton Online Backup"--when I try to remove it with add or remove program from Control Panel--it can't be removed. How do I get this program off my computer[/size]

Having done some digging on line for others with your same situation the general answer has been to use Revo Uninstaller.

A free version is available at the above link. I have never used Revo myself but it is highly recommended by others here at BC.

I use Revo Uninstaller frequently and it is a very efficient tool that also scans and removes leftover Registry entries. I have never had a problem using it and highly recommend it. Just don't use it to un-install a Steam app. It will remove Steam and the other games with it. Uninstall a Steam app from within Steam.

A nice bit of additional info to keep tucked away. Thank you Zuhl3156.

The free version of Revo only works on 32-bit systems, if your HP is 64-bit it may not work.

You're welcome, ThunderZ. I did it once before and almost did it again trying to get rid of the Civilization V demo.

Had thought about that initially. But what I have read on line leads me to believe that will not work in this instance.
