I seem to remember a thread somewhere that gave instructions on how to remove Norton completely from a computer, but I can't locate it now. I have a friend who just bought a Compaq machine and removed Norton using Total Uninstall. Norton still continues to pop up warnings, and for the life of me, I can't figure out how to get rid of it.

Could someone point me to the thread, if it exists, or perhaps provide me some guidance on how to finish completely removing Norton from her machine?

Thanks!

Alternatively, you can use OPSWAT's AppRemover - supported applications list.
