    Norton Removal Tool was designed to be a program that can remove some Norton software from your computer.

    NRT's main purpose is to aid in the removal of Norton products; the built-in uninstaller may fail to remove all files and registry entries, conflicting with future installations.

    NRT can only remove these Norton programs:
    · Norton AntiSpam 2004/2005
    · Norton AntiVirus 2003 through 2011
    · Ghost 2003, Ghost Version 9.0 and 10.0, 12.0, 14.0, 15.0
    · Norton GoBack 3.1 through 4.2
    · Norton Internet Security 2003 through 2011
    · Norton Password Manager
    · Norton Personal Firewall 2003 through 2009
    · Norton SystemWorks 2003 through 2009
    · Norton Confidential Online 2007
    · Norton Internet Security Add-on Pack 1.0 - 4.0
    · Norton Save and Restore 1.0 -2.0
    · Norton 360 1.0 - 4.0
    · Norton Safety Reminder 1.0
    · Norton SafeWeb 3.2

    Just used this t'other day to uninstall NIS 2011.
    Left quite a lot behind.
    Some useful files: key etc. ( which I had elsewhere )
    Some files left behind re install history and the current install file for 2011 which was what I removed.
    "Identifier files" etc
    Prolly in anticipation of reinstall or update.
    I had moved the Start entry to another folder, and that was left behind.

    Not going to do it again now but a search for 'Symantec' and 'Norton' in the reg and on the disc post running the tool was revealing.

    IIRC, the standard advice is run uninstall from add/remove, then run the removal tool as noted above?
