Shwehhw...dude, use some punctuation in there. It is hard to read :whistling:

Putting Norton aside for a moment, often times a good way to get an uninstall to work is to first install the program again, then run add/remove in control panel

Too many disk cleaners are too agressive and remove the uninstall scripts, causing this issue

When you run into these issues, reinstalling first, makes sure that file is there
