Norton Symantic Complaint - Norton Symantic Facist Virus Distribution

Review by poagain on 2009-03-14
I downloaded Adobe Shockwave .....and while I was away from my computer for a length of time.... Norton without my agreement installed NORTON SYSTEM SCAN....and thats without an un-install option..... I looked briefly on the net and sure enough several others had the identical experience and said that every time their computer reboots there it is again... intruding and demanding..... that is a trojan... that is a virus.... and is a controlling factor without ethics or regard for others... People should boycott NORTON.

You missed the check box to opt-out of getting Norton. They randomly offer either Norton or Google Toolbar. To remove it go to Click Start > Settings > Control Panel. Click Add or Remove Programs. Click Norton and then click Remove. Now go to SEARCH and find everything connected to Norton. Delete them all. You can also download a legitimate Registry cleaner (I recommend Ccleaner) to remove any vestiges of Norton in the Registry.
