They should put a disclaimer in there manual with big letters stating:

"IN ORDER TO UNINSTALL YOU MUST DO A REFORMAT, TO DO THIS JUST BOOT COMPUTER IN DOS MODE WITH A FLOPPY AND USE FORMAT C:/ \S"

That would clear the confusion up with a lot of people. Heck they could make it better and just include the boot disk with the program ..

I had a hell of a time removing NAV 2003. It didnt remove everything so when I went to install AVG I would get a BSOD.

To resolve the issue I searched the register for symantec and norton and del all the entries. Then I did the same for files on my drive. That fixed it, but it was hell.

Just a note that my uninstall did complete successfully and the norton removal tool said everything was gone. PFFT ya right.

As you can tell, Johnny is not a fan of Norton branded products. Forgive him.

I uninstalled NIS 2006 last night using this method, maybe it will help you...

1.) Uninstall the program using Add/Remove programs
2.) Reboot
3.) Delete the following directories: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Symantec, C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Symantec, C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec, and the Program Files directory for the application
4.) Scrub the registry (do a keyword search for "Norton", "Symantec", "SymNet", "ccProxy", "ccApp", "ccPrxy")
5.) Reboot

After completeing those steps you should be good to go. If you continue to have troubles then try a registry cleaner such as CCleaner or RegSupreme. And if you still have troubles your best bet is to start from scratch (as Johnny mentioned).

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
