I have just purchased (day before yesterday) an Inspiron 1150. After immediately installing XP SP2 and experiencing the resulting slowdown, then fixing it with the requisite patch, I now feel I want to get rid of the invasive Norton Internet Security that was inflicted on me at purchase time. I have alternative programs that are independant and can be started when I need them.
I have spent quite a while in the past assisting people in the removal of these Symantec programs... is this version the same - in that it will not fully uninstall of it's own accord?
If so, does anyone know of a removal tool I can use?
I cannot do a system rollback, as it came pre-installed.
I have absolutely no idea whatg this means "I particularly like the necessity for a 187kb .reg hack to remove 800 lines from the registry" be regardless I reject your conclusions. The performance of a program, or suite of programs is not necessaily proportional by the number of registry entries.
