    Hi there..
    I'm having trouble to uninstall my previous installed norton 2005. i can't remove it as there is no NORTON ANTIVIRUS on the add/remove program. how would i handle this?

    that link is the symantec uninstaller. it should uninstall the program as good as can be.

    every time you install a program, it changes registries files in windows as well as a lot of complex little bits of code. uninstalling, while removing the program, does not completely fix all these little changes. that's why it's good to reinstall windows occasionally--it makes your system more efficient and secure.

    probably, but why would you want to?

    norton is worse than a virus.
