    Hello All

    I need to uninstall Norton Internet Security 2012. Do I uninstall from Add / Remove then run the Norton Removal tool, or should I uninstall the software using the Norton Removal tool?


    Regards SilverSurf

    Hi,
    The most thorough way is by using the Norton removal tool that you downloaded.

    1. Close all Norton Application windows you may have open, and double-click on Norton_Removal_Tool.exe to start the removal tool.
    2. After the removal tool finishes, you should be prompted to restart your computer.
    3. Once the computer restarts, your Norton product should be uninstalled.
    I hope this helps?

    Hi, SilverSurf

    In many cases, you can simply remove Norton products through the Add/Remove Control Panel.

    1) Click on Start, Click on Control Panel
    2) Double-click on Add or Remove Programs
    3) Find the Symantec or Norton product listed and click on it. It should look similar to the following
    4) Click on Remove
    5) Click the Remove All button to start the removal process.
    6) Once the removal process completes, you'll be asked to restart the computer. Go ahead and reboot at that time.
    7) After rebooting Norton should be removed from your system.
    :D
