There is a removal tool on the Symantec site to totally remove all 
components of Norton. It has been recommended that this is used as to not 
conflict with other anti-virus programs.

As it has been stated that Norton 2007 is too much of a graphical interface. 
Therefore I have Norton 2006 and plan to renew it thru it's interface and 
see if that helps.

As for other software you have a couple of options. There is nod32 which I 
believe has a 20 day free trial and then you must purchase it.

The anti-virus program AVG has a free version as well as a paid version. You 
could possibly install them and try for yourself to see what works best for 

Personally I would download the new anti-virus program. Uninstall Norton. 
Install the new program and give it a try. If you don't like it then go back 
to Norton.

  My edition of Norton is about to expire.  I'm considering AVG or maybe 
another anti-virus program.  Is there anything special I need to do before 
installing and/or trying out a different anti-virus program.  Do I need a 
special tool to remove all traces of Norton?  Actually, can I install the 
new program before uninstalling Norton?  I would deactivate Norton, but I'm 
wondering if it would be easier to keep Norton on my system in the event 
that I don't like the new program and choose to return to Norton.
