    Hi,

    Based on my past, and unfortunately present, experience with Norton AV, and
    the removing of it, I thought I'd better ask here first before trying.

    Has anyone ever used their uninstall utility Rnav2003 ?:

    " Removing Norton AntiVirus 2003 or earlier by using the Rnav2003.exe
    removal
    utility when Add/Remove programs fails "

    Has it proven to be safe, and not louse other things up ?

    Any caveats, gotchas, etc. ?

    Thanks,
    Bob

    In Robert11 spewed forth:
    That's an older version of their removal tool. If you have version 2004 or
    newer you will want to use SymNRT.exe

    <http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPOR...02a0c6&dtype=&prod=&ver=&osv=&osv_lvl=&seg=ag>

    and even then it's not total. There are registry entries left behind. So run
    CCleaner.exe and/or other registry cleaners (be careful - be very, very
    careful!)

    But I've never had a system failure or such after using those removal tools.
