    I have NAV 2003 on my Windows XP Pro PC. That is the only Symantec program I have installed. Norton usually leaves behind folders and registry entries after uninstalling by Add/remove programs. Is it necessary for me to manually remove these before I install NOD32?

    Personally I recommend using the tool and instructions from the page WSFuser has linked to regardless of if add/remove programs thinks it has worked or not
    Just MHO :)
    Cheers

    I'd add that it does no harm to use a good registry cleaner after using the Symantec tools. Despite their registry cleanup file, I still found a mass of entries - it's no way for software to behave! :mad:

    Thank you to all replying. I successfully uninstalled NAV using add/remove programs followed by manually removing what it left behind, including one registry key.

    The NOD32 install went flawlessly and it is running an in-depth scan now. The virus signatures were updated to 1.1458.
