I have allowed my subscription to expire and am going to uninstall Norton Security and install a recommended antivirus antimalware program.    I want to get Norton completely off my system and I know it can be stubborn to remove all traces.... I'm not willing to format though.  
 
Thanks in advance

Take a look: https://support.norton.com/sp/en/us/home/current/solutions/v15972972_ns_retail_en_us

Also at the bottom of that information is a link to using the Norton Removal Tool. If you choose to go that route.

Sometimes the uninstall works more effectively if you first stop and disable the program's service (and associated processes in Task Manager) or perform the removal in safe mode so there are less processes which can interfere with the uninstallation.

I've uninstalled with the remove tool and it was great and now I'm protected with Microsoft Essential Security,,, free and my computer is no longer bogged down.  Thanks for all the advice on here.
