Solved: Norton 360 won't allow Internet Connection
Hello, this is my first posting, I hope I'm in the right forum..

This is a problem concerning my laptop HP Pavillion, not the computer from which I write to you now.

After downloading Norton360 Premier Edition, unable to connect to the Internet. I am unable to uninstall the Norton360 Program.
Things I've tried---
Contacted AT&T -Communication device working properly.
Contacted Norton(Symantec) Tech Support--Tried Deleting from Programs and Features. Tried deleting from safe mode- no help, either.
Norton Tech suggested run Norton Removal tool, but I can't access IE, or any webpages.

How would you download Norton Removal Tool and transfer it to 2nd computer? Anything else I can try to remove Norton 360? Oh ya my os is vista

Use a USB flash drive or burn it to CD


Dump Norton and use a free alternative, here are 3 good ones, don't install one of these until you get Norton removed.

Download the Norton Removal Tool from a working computer. Copy the installer to a USB flash drive. Then, plug the drive to your faulty computer.

Norton Removal Tool did not work.
Hi, again,

Shall change my experience from intermediate to stupid!!

Downloaded Norton removal tool to usb flash drive, installed on second computer, will not open program.
Have restored system back to earlier date with no results. Perhaps its a blocked Firewall or something of that nature. Conflicting programs?
Have 2 Norton 360s showing installed. One Norton won't run because the other is running and I can't uninstall either one.!!!!!! As in earlier post, tried in safe mode with no results. What can I try next, besides turning the machine into a margarita machine?

Maybe this will help diagnose the problem--

Have you run the Tool more than once? It sometimes takes at least two shots to work.

Don't run the Tool from the USB flash drive. Copy it to your hard drive first.

Firewall Issue
Do you think this could be a firewall issue or stack corruption? Should i reset winsock and IPv4 TCP/IP from cmd prmt?
