I am running windows xp home edition. I loaded Norton Systemworks and now I have lost the ability to add and remove programs including Norton. I would remove norton to see if that was the problem but can't.Any help would be appreciated.

Have you tried to remove programs while in safe mode? Hit the F8 key while your computer is booting to get a startup menu. Choose 'safe mode'. Then try to remove Norton.

Or perhaps you could try Uninstall Plus! It is a program that is available on a trial basis HERE. I use it regularly and like it. Not only will it start a specific program's uninstaller, but then it will search the registry for any traces of the deleted program.

Someone said Norton?

Well, just a quick check , do you have any other notron s/w on your comp when u install NSW?

If u intend to remove, you can try the windows clean remover or so called the uninstaller program

Try here: http://symantec.atgnow.com/consumer/result...esultType=5000#

ZENER: I don't believe that is the right link to remove Norton.

Do you have the correct link?

That's it, Scarlett. That will work for any Symantec product post 2003. Here's the other link to remove pre 2003 products.

Removing Norton AntiVirus 2003 or earlier by using the Rnav2003.exe removal utility when Add/Remove programs fails
