Hi,

My college is offering a free copy of Norton Antivirus version 10 that I would like to install on my PC. However, I have an old copy of Norton occupying the PC that I cannot uninstall. This Norton program is not listed in the Windows Add/Remove Programs system folder for some reason. The subscription to the old Norton program expired and I've been getting the annoying Security Alert everytime I log on. I cannot get rid of this notice, it just pops back up mere seconds later if I close it.

The new Norton cannot be installed because the aforementioned Security Alert uses files that the installation program needs to use.

Does anyone know how I can either:
1-uninstall the old version of Norton entirely, including the Security Alert, or
2-stop the Security Alert from automatically appearing? I've unclicked every possible type of automatic notification option I can find in Norton and Windows, but the dang alert still pops up?

Thank you.

Often, you can get away with installing Norton over top of itself. Go offline and give it a shot.
