bought it off a friend (partially legal?) but i think that if i remove ativius, by deleteing it, that i can clean install. only problem is that it is in use, or access is denied. how can i delete that?
question: the command line starts out c:\documents and settings\name:_ how do i just get to C:\? and then to C:\Program Files\Norton SystemWorks\Norton Antivirus? i want to delete the files that are messing up the system
better question, can i just delete the registry tags?
For what's it worth[actually not much] i've used nortons AND mcafees, wasn't impressed, by either, i run xp also, and i really like avast, and best of all, it's free, it's caught things, that the other two, didn't,
Maybe the best bet is to clean install Windows and then install Norton Systemworks 2003. If you have the Pro version, you can do the clean install and then use Ghost to do an image of your hard drive to CD or other partition on hard drive. I got Norton Systemworks and installed it on XP.... installed and ran it flawless for 3 years now.
jroc, watch your mouth! Norton is NOT bloatware! If you don't use what it offers, then don't install it! There are lots of useful features in this wonderful package! Antivirus, System checkup, system cleaner, Hard drive imaging (Professional version only).
There are options for you at installation to tell setup not to install what you don't need....
i did a clean install of XP because i had a W32/Pirate worm in there killing off most all of my *.exe files. i went from running nothing in the backround to now running AVG, Norton and Zone Alarm. wow, what a difference.
