RE: Replacing Norton With Another Program

If Norton uninstalls cleanly (not always the case), there should be no
problem.  However, if you want to really eradicate it, Symantec can
e-mail you a link to an executable that will remove every single trace.
I don't have the URL handy, but the program is easy to use, and it
works.

Hi Katrina

As I've said lots of times already, but maybe you didn't see them, 
you absolutely can not go wrong  with NOD 32 from:

http://www.nod32.com
Norton puts itself in a lot of places on your computer, but a 
standard uninstall of the program should remove most traces of it, 
enough that it'd be safe to install another antivirus program. It's 
never a good idea to have 2 antivirus programs installed on the same 
machine, at least that's always been my experience.  As I told others 
the advantage of NOD 32 is the fact that it doesn't get in your way, 
it doesn't slow down your computer while scanning for viruses, it 
updates itself in the background and if something does happen, it 
presents you a simple window that lets you decide which action to 
take.  When you install NOD 32 however, do a custom install, and make 
sure that the custom graphical interface is not turned on.  You can 
always turn it off after you install the program, but if it may 
present some issues with JAWS if you keep it on.  Others on the list 
are using it too so if you need help in disabling the graphics, just 
ask.  After using Nod 32 I'll never use anything else. I swear by it. 
It does cost a little bit of money, but for the protection it offers, 
it's an invaluable solution. plus it's accessible with JAWS, and it 
just plane works.
