How do I uninstall Norton Internet Security safely, cleanly and thouroughly?
Having bought a new computer running Windows 7 in November preloaded with a trial of Norton Internet Security I now find Norton want an arm and a leg to renew.
I am loathe to do so when, in the past, AVG has been perfectly adequate for my needs and in addition is free.
I have heard that removing Norton can be fraught with danger as removing via the add/remove programs still leaves entries in the registry that may cause problems later. I am aware that there is a 'Norton Uninstaller' obtained via the Norton Website.
My questions are:
1) How do I know which version of Norton Internet Security I have in order to download the correct uninstaller?
2) Do I use the add/remove facility on my computer to uninstall first and then use Norton Uninstaller or will the Norton Uninstaller do it all?
Any other advice to this novice computer user would be particularly appreciated.
Thanking you in advance.
