    How To Remove The Norton Virus
    « on: May 01, 2007, 03:49:05 AM »
    To remove the Norton virus:

    Download the Norton Removal tool here
     
    Do not run it yet.

    1) Download and install ERUNT and have it make a backup of your registry...
    2) Use Add Remove Programs first and un-install Norton...
    3) From Windows Explorer search for any folders named Norton and Symantec and delete them...
    4) Open regedit and type Norton in the search bar. Delete all entries it finds. F3 takes you to the next  instance of Norton. Continue til you have reached the end of the registry...
    5) Repeat the above process using Symantec instead in the search field. Delete any Symantec keys it finds...
    6) Now run the Norton Removal tool you DLoaded...
    7) Empty the recycle bin...
     Go to My Computer and right click the C: drive and select Properties and run disk cleanup...
    9) Re-boot and run disk defrag....
     
    There you're done !

    Please post as much information about your computer, operating system, and problem as possible, what happened prior to problems, etc. Too much info is OK, too little is pointless! Don't just say "My computer doesn't work. What's wrong?"
