open charms bar
select search/settings & type uninstall
select uninstall programs & when that opens, select Norton in the list

If you had followed Forum rules and only posted 1 topic for this, I wouldn't have wasted my time posting what I previously posted and from that post I assumed that you didn't know how to get to uninstall programs in W8
I have merged both threads together, Stay in this thread until your problem is cured

I have tried that already and did it again right now then tried to reinstall nod32 and still get the error 2878...went through all of the stuff that eset tells me to do but it still comes up with the error and shows Norton still installed
