I just bought a used Toshiba satellite Windows xp laptop. I'm going through programs to remove. I try using the windows add/remove programs to remove Norton internet security 2006 and the Norton uninstaller starts up, freezes and won't uninstall anything.
How do I get this Norton junk of my harddrive?

I got rid of all traces of Norton, the laptop is much faster and works better. It makes a company look pretty sad when they have universal norton software removal programs listed on there website!
