Thanks,
I was able to uninstall it but now Im trying to reinstall it from the cd and it keeps stopping and saying there is a premature error and it wont finish installing properly. What should I do now?

Any help is much appreciated,
Thanks,

More info is needed.

What version of the Symantec software are you trying to install?

Try searching thru Symantecs Knowledge base - its one of the best in my opinion. http://www.symantec.com/search/

Also here's a nifty tool for removing Norton Antivirus: http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPOR...88256d4f0056d552?OpenDocument&src=bar_sch_nam

Internet Security Uninstaller: http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPOR...88256abe00615e20?OpenDocument&src=bar_sch_nam

There's one for System Works too, but I can't find it.

These uninstallers do a better job then the Uninstaller provided with the Products.

Thanks, I used that remove tool and then was able to reinstall it, i guess some parts had not been removed sucessfully in my initial attempt to remove it.
Thanks again!
