Removing Norton Utilities
« on: August 24, 2006, 09:38:27 PM »
Now that I have gotten my newer computer working, I would like to clean up my old Pentium with Windows 98. When I am on the Internet, the keyboard lag is outrageous and I think it has something to do with Norton Utilities. It's an old version which I haven't renewed in years. But, it nags the crap out of me.

I just want to clean it off of my computer. But, it's like the computer is being held hostage when you try to remove parts of it. I lack the expertise to be messing around erasing things without some guidence.

Can anyone tell me how to remove Norton Utilities entirely?

    I'd reformat it unless you have a very good reason not to.

      The lag is probably due to any Norton product AND an old install of WIndopws that has gotten "gunked up" over the years.  ;)

      Until we know more about the machine he might not want to throw XP on an older Pentium...

      Pick AVG or Avast for your brand new Anti-Virus protection...you will not be disappointed.
