I imagine anyone who gets conned by that have not come across this (http://service1.symantec.com/Support/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039).

When I didn't know better and used Norton myself, I found that often even their own removal tool did not work.

At the time, Norton caused me to reinstall windows 3 times :lol:

I bet that uninstallnorton.com site is run by Symantec....

Uninstall Norton is successfuly 97% of the time. Uninstall Norton normally sells for $69.95. Here you save $30. Or Have Our Technicians Uninstall Norton For You - Usually we can help you avoid you having to reformat your hard drive.

:lol:

If the usual uninstall doesn't work, there is there own free removal tool. If that doesn't work, Revo Uninstaller.

If nothing works, there is always the totally free DIY MANUAL uninstall. Painful, but perfect

Formatting is still the most thorough way to go. :D

That website looks soooooo dodgy in many ways

e.g.

Like it :p
I bet that uninstallnorton.com site is run by Symantec.... What a novel way to generate money.


Sell a Crap product that doesn't work, support - whats that ? and causes all sorts of problems
Charge same people even more money on dodgy programs, that can be downloaded for free - make even more Money.

The old American date format which means 11/8/2009

Oh no, I didn't mean that.

Seems to indicate to me that the date is sourced from a javascript process? Correct me if I'm wrong :)

Uninstalling Norton can be one of the most frustrating computer experiences you will encounter . . .

Bollocks. Leaving it in is infinitely worse.

If it wasn't for the fact that some people here get upset when other people point out that some things have grammar & spelling mistakes,
I'd mention that there are ( subtle? or maybe not? Depending on the reader...) clues on that website that English is not the first language of its author.

So I won't mention it after all.

Maybe, maybe not. Many advertisers treat all languages badly. They also assume their audience must be retarded (which may be justified I suppose.)

Go ahead Laura - that's why I posted the link in the first place! :p There's no way any professional company would run a webpage with such tewwible Engrish!

That commercial is so powerful, I think I will have to go out, buy Vista, buy a suite of Norton goodies, get a Dell, and get the toaster shop to set 'er all up, just so I too can become a satisfied user. Yeah, right.

A person phoned me a few days ago and said he was sent a copy of Nortons for Win 95. This had a price tag of $395.00. He asked should I install it and I gave him a no as he runs WinXP home and he runs Avast anyway.

I did see the box but he had only opened the outer cover.

When I opened the inner box it contained pamphlets for a Marae. I thought it was heavy.

Same person after I removed media player 11 off his computer two days ago and rolled it back to version 9 complained about he had no sound. This while he was at my place today.

It was easy to go to his place and plug in the speaker.
