"I got it work, but it took some work."
Norton is gone!
Pain in the behind, and the fact we even need a tool to uninstall says it all.
Norton (Symantec) is the devil! I hate their company and will never buy anything related to it. As for this software It sucks, but I got it to work. (Sad you even have to go through this crap!) Anyway, I had to run msconfig and disable USC (User Account Control) which forces users that are part of the local administrators group to run like they were regular users with no administrative privileges. (stupid function) The reason I had to disable USC is the link that you need to click on after you arrive to the page stating "The version of Norton Removal Tool you are using has expired," (sheesh) kept telling me that I needed to sign on as administrator. (Duh, I am the admin and was signed on as such) Then I disabled my firewall. This tool only removes certain versions of which apparently came pre-installed on the machine I was cleaning up for a friend. What a mess... Good luck. (bovinedung)
