Uninstalling any of Symantec‘s Norton software line can sometimes result in leftover registry settings and other potential conflicts in a system. Fortunately, Symantec has an available tool to remove this obstacles by the name of SymNRT.
The list of Norton products this tool will automatically remove includes:
- Norton AntiVirus 2004/2005
- Norton AntiVirus Professional 2004
- Norton AntiVirus 3, 5 and 10 User Pack 2004/2005
- Norton SystemWorks 2004/2004 Professional Edition
- Norton SystemWorks 2005/2005 Premier edition
- Norton Password Manager 2004
- Norton Internet Security 2004/2005
- Norton Internet Security 5 and 10 User Pack 2004/2005
- Norton Personal Firewall 2004/2005
- Norton AntiSpam 2004/2005
- Ghost 2003 or Ghost Version 9.0
The tool works slowly, as it’s scanning your entire system for any Norton remains, but it is very effective at what it does.
One thought on “Removing Symantec’s Norton software”
After I uninstalled Norton Firewall 2004 I had a very annoying problem with my network. At first everything seemed to work fine, but when I wanted to play City of Heros the game could not connect to the server no matter what I did. After I ran SymNRT whatever it was that blocked the game was fixed. If Derek hadn’t mentioned this tool I don’t think I’d have ever worked out what the problem was. Thanks again Derek!
