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.
