I am trying to donwload the newest version of Symantec (Otherwise known as Norton) Anti-Virus. When doing this, It tells me I still have another version on my computer. I went through to delete it, but it says my navec.msi or something is missing. So I went through symantec's manual tutorial on how to delete Norton Corporate Edition Manually.. I did all they said to do and STILL, it says I have traces even after I deleted it from teh registry.

What should I Do?

Have you performed a Search on your computer for Symantec and Norton?

If you don't mind my asking, is there any particular reason you're going with a "pay-for" antivirus as opposed to a freeware program such as AVG, Avast, etc.?
