Uninstalling Norton Antivirus, Part 2

Three more days to uninstall Symantec’s Norton Antivirus. According to a review that I was reading at Amazon the Norton Uninstall does not completely remove Norton.

The normal uninstall process will not remove all Symantec files from your computer (this has been a serious problem with Symantec from the beginning). In the case of Norton Anti-Virus and Norton Internet Security, the remaining files will conflict with Trend Micro’s products. To remove them, go to Symantec’s website and download a file named “RnisUPG.exe”. Run it, and it will remove the offending files.

Thanks to Amazon reviewer Diego Banducci.
