Hi all, any help here will be appreciated. I recently had to pull this beast out of storage, blow off all the mothballs and dust and get it re-running again. Problem A: It is a Piece of chit and I realize that...haha. Problem B: I had Norton antivirus (been so long can't remember which version) on here but my subscription had expired. Comcast offers free McAfee..... bla bla bla..... installed, had to uninstall all norton products. Thought I did so properly, but whenever I restart computer, I get message that it is searching and can not find certain parts of NNorton/Symantec. My recycle Bin still says Norton Protected. When I search for files (anything symantec or norton) nothing shows up...... (Duh, I know, if it was there, I wouldn't get the can't find message).
A bit of history about this PC.....It is a former server from a roofing company....Hard drive has been re-formatted by a pro and turned into a PC with windows 98 (not even SE). Pentium II, 256K ram.
I know the best solution is to toss it out the 12th floor window and go buy a new one, but I just can't. Still stuff on here that I want to hang on to till I can transfer it to newer beast (which boyfriend decided to try to rip out the monitor and wiggled loose the monitor card and even tho it is now back in the proper slot, it still won't work, and when I turn power on to the PC, I get three strange beeps.....no picture, etc etc etc.....Hmmmm... maybe i should toss HIM out the 12th floor window instead of the computer......hahaha)
Anyways..... any help on cleaning out the rest of the norton/symantec and other issues would be graciously appreciated.
GREAT SITE.........Helped me rid that OTHER beast of all the garbage that got on there when the affore mentioned fella decided to go on a free porn frenzy....lol)
