Hi Jim :
At present, is there a Norton icon in your System Tray ? If yes, follow what I
said about "terminating" it; then go to "Add or Remove Programs" and TRY to
"uninstall" that Norton "Live Update". If you are successful in that, then run the
Norton "Removal Tool", followed by using your computer's "Search > All files
and folders", using the search "terms" "Symantec" & later "Norton" and "Delete"
all appropiate items ( should be all of them UNLESS you have another Norton
product on your computer ) . For the Registry "fixing", I use a Safe & Good &
FREE registry cleaner called the "evaluation" copy of Registry First Aid, available
; IF you decide to use or try this
program, you MUST scroll down the webpage to find the "evaluation" copy with
its one of 2 Choices download link.
AND the AOL AVS is NOT a very good choice for an antiVIRUS program; best to
NEVER use a "security program" provided by an Internet Service Provider because
they are usually a "stripped down" version of another company's antivirus program.
Not sure HOW "completely" you "removed" the AVG antivirus program !? Best to use
the 4 - Step "Approach" I have recommended, then you know it is COMPLETELY GONE
and will NOT "conflict" with any subsequent antiVIRUS program you would install .
I recommend the Good & FREE Avast Antivirus Home Edition, available from : http://www.avast.com
; it has 7 "Providers/Shields" & EXCELLENT Support Forums.
I am one of the regular "Helpers" on those Support Forums. However, Avast will
NOT work IF you use the AOL "browser" and perhaps even if you are using AOL
as your Internet Service Provider. I always recommend reading the "FAQ"s BEFORE
deciding on a product & Avast's is at : http://www.avast.com/eng/faq-avast-4-home-professional.html
