Hey everyone.

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.

Thanks,
Sean

Go with their removal instructions, RNAV looks a good option

hi,
I suppose rnav2003.exe is a tool to remove nav versions of 2k,2k1,2k2,2k3.
if you want to remove nis 2002,the program to download and run is rnis.upg which can be downloaded at
ftp://ftp.symantec.com/misc/consumer/RnisUPG.exe
this should remove nis versions of 2003 or earlier.
try it!
regarding the firewall,you can use zonealarm from zonelabs.free and a good one too!
