    Hi, williamorc :)

    Try the removal tool from Symantec:
    1. Please download and save SymNRT.exe to your desktop.
    2. Close all programs and double click on the tool.
    3. Follow the on-screen instructions.
    4. Restart the computer if asked.
    5. Then delete the SymNRT.exe tool from your desktop.
    6. Open the Program Files folder on your local disk ( normally C: )
    7. Find and delete the following folders (if present):
      • Norton AntiVirus
      • Norton Internet Security
      • Norton SystemWorks
      • Norton Personal Firewall
