    Whenever I right-click an icon I get the Symantec installer pop-up. But I'm using Spyware Terminator to stop it from opening.

    I've recently manually removed Symantec from my system, the context menu is still there and there's no traces of Symantec on my PC (I don't think) I've run Smarty Uninstaller 2007 to remove traces, then Ccleaner then Iobits Advanced Windowscare personal to clean my PC.

    A list of installers I've currently got blocked:

    C:\WINDOWS\INSTALLER\MSI2E5.TMP
    C:\WINDOWS\INSTALLER\MSI2E8.TMP
    C:\WINDOWS\INSTALLER\MSI2E9
    C:\WINDOWS\INSTALLER\MSI1317.tmp
    C:\WINDOWS\INSTALLER\MSI131C

    Bump!


    Blocked by SWT as these are popping up to allow or block, when the installer appears. I've noticed that I'm using IDmanager and it's getting blocked (So that installer is for IDman too)

    I'm totally confused. Any help is 100% appreciated. So when I right click I'm getting installer pop-ups from Symantec installer.

    If the Norton Removal Tool don't help, you could always do a search in the registry for norton + symantec entries and delete them manually, be sure to uncheck the Match whole string only box.
    If you don't know what you doing then don't try it you might HOSE your machine.
