    Hi well you might think I'm mad but I'm trying to install Norton as it comes free with my broadband package. I have successfully installed it on the lap top no problem but the desktop ran sophos about 4 years ago and Norton is refusing to install its own anti-virus cos itis detecting Sophos. I uninstalled Sophos Sweep years ago and can find nothing that looks like sophos files anywhere. so ATM I have no anti-virus software so this is kind of urgent. Presumably something is lurking somewhere but I can't find it. Any ideas?

    Please help!:eek:

    Thank you so much. It was a very helpful link. I went through the registry and found bits of sophos all over the flipping place. Deleted everything I could find, crossed my fingers and hey presto Norton loaded.

    I'm SO grateful

    Thank you
