    Go to Start/Run/Regedit and navigate to this key: (The first one is per
    user, the second, per system)

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Unins*t
    all]
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Unin*s
    tall]

    Create a new DWORD value for the restriction below. Set the value to equal
    "0" to disable the restriction.

    NoRemovePage - Disable Change and Remove Programs

    You may need to restart Windows for the changes to take effect.

    Thanks guys. I was trying to remove Norton from my system, but it had no remove against it. I was going to reload Norton using the original CD when I noticed it had a remove facility.
    Thanks for posting your help.
