I've seen them do it both ways--sending either the program or a link to
it.  Either way, it'll clean you out, and is  the best way to avoid
potential problems.

This is the first time in 15 or 16 years I've run without any Norton
products on my home machine.  Those utilities were life savers a time or
two, and I rather hope the separation won't be permanent.

I found the removal tool by searching for it via google.com.  The
following
link was the first presented by google.

I don't know about Samantic sending the tool via E-mail.  Hmmm, wonder
if
that option would include the graphical security code?

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.
