    It is very difficult to get rid of. I tried the utilities that Norton had available and at that time (2004) they did not completely remove everything. I finally manually deleted 300+ registry entries that referred to Norton and Symantec.

    Recent registry cleaners might reduce that number considerably. Now, I use Regseeker (carefully) and VCOM SystemSuite 6.0. Between them, they do a pretty good job.

    That experience made me stop using Norton products. Some day I may start again if they fix their software so it does not invade and take over my computer.
