Start in the Safe Mode (Press F8 during boot) and than try the Control Panel's "Add/Remove
Programs" applet to uninstall Norton System Works.

To remove all the garbage it left behind:

Download Norton's Symclean & RNAV to remove all of Norton's components:
ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/englis...ols/SYMCLN.EXE

Rnav for NAV 2003 and earlier:
ftp://ftp.symantec.com/misc/consumer/Rnav2003.exe

How to uninstall Norton AntiVirus 2000/2001/2002

How to uninstall Norton SystemWorks manually.
http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT...01100212100807

http://www.symantec.com/search/
Keywords: symclean, and RNAV

Run 1st: symclean
Run 2nd: RNAV

Also do a computer search and remove any folder that contains
"Catalog.LiveSubscribe"

If you have Norton Internet Security (NIS) installed, also search
for the "Rnis removal utility"
ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/englis...is/RnisUPG.exe



Run regedit, and clean 2 entries:
1. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Symantec
2. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Symantec

Delete folders:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared
C:\Program Files\Symantec
C:\Windows\Application Data\Symantec
C:\Windows\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\

If add/remove doesn't work, symantec makes special uninstall utilites
for older versions of nortons.
