I really have become a fan of MSE(XP, Vista and 7) or Windows Defender(WIn8). As well as Malwarebytes and Super Anti-Spyware for on-demand secondary scanning. Windows firewall for years has been more than enough for the home/casual user. Practicing safe surfing and keeping your computer up to date is the most important couple of things a user can do. Anti-virus, regardless of the brand will help with the rest. Some A/V will act different on different setups. Try a few of the free ones if you like. JUST REMEMBER TO ALWAYS NEVER HAVE MORE THAN ONE A/V ON YOUR SYSTEM AT A TIME.

Windows 8 comes with Windows Defender(Antivirus) guess you know this but this is not similar to Windows Defender in Windows 7
I have asked the Question about the Firewall in this Forum and I have been assured that Windows Firewall in Windows 7/8 is pretty good.....................
Don`t Disable UAC(Most people do it),Smart Screen filter in Windows 8.
Eset(NOD 32) Antivirus works fine with Windows 8.Avast! well their seemed to be a few issues with Avast! 7 so most of the Guys in my College who upgraded to Windows 8 Decided to go with Defender for protection.
Don`t know about Avast! version 8...........

This thing came with Norton.
Ran the Norton removal tool from here http://www.symantec.com/symnrt
but funny thing, it still seems to be on there in some capacity. It's relinquished control of the Firewall, at least...

So, Did the uninstall fail or Removal tool Fail?
Please try running the tool again.... All AV leave some file and registry entries and removing all of them may not be possible....
Try running the tool again to see if it helps
