After years of Norton use I think I'm ready to move on... besides my subscription has expired. I'm switching to AVG and a firewall yet to be determined. I've looked around on this board and the web and from the looks of it uninstalling Norton products can be the kiss of death for many systems.
Besides the usual prep work of backing up data and setting a system restore point, what can I do to make the uninstall process as smooth as possible? I'm using the 2002 versions of the software.
