View Full Version : Trouble with warm & virus update, need uninstall program

Hi folks,
This computer got the worm now the Norton anti-virus program "system works" will not update,
We tried to un-install and re-install, but still it comes up with a update error, we noticed after we reinstalled it did not ask for the Product key - password, suggesting that the program did not do a complete un-install,
I thought that Reg cleaner found all the programs installed on your computer so you could get rid of that last trace, but I was wrong, can anybody suggest a good free-ware program so we could start all over again fresh thanks.

if you goto the norton site you can download the update file and install it as an .exe this bypasses the 'live update' function..... it's called 'intelligent update'
