Uninstall Norton Internet Security and Norton Antivirus

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Installation' started by Bertrand Vichyn, Jun 18, 2006.

  1. The incompatibility between Win Vista Beta 2 32 bit and Symantec products is
    a real mess. The result is I cant use any Antivirus! I cannot install
    PCcillin for Vista since it finds the old Norton. I cannot uninstall Norton
    since I'm prevented by "Administrator permissions". I'm the owner and the
    Administrator and the only user but maybe the system doesn't allow me
    "special permissions".
    How can I get full permissions in order to wipe out Norton and install
    PCcillin? Thank you for an appropriate answer.

    I had serious compatibiity issues with all Norton products on windows XP, so
    I removed them. Do you have the Vista version of NAV? or were you trying to
    use the XP version? I was thinking about giving them a second chance, but if
    the new version doesn't work, I'll have to get a different AV program.
    to uninstall, try disabling UAC (Control Panel->User Accounts->Change
    Security Settings)
