    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    What happens when you try and download the removal tool?

    I can't download anything. It says my security settings wont let me but I've tried to adjust them but nothing happened. I have Mcafee and Norton and I'm trying to get rid of them

    Ok, I have sent file to your email address. Hopefully, that`ll solve your problem. You will need to download the attachment and unzip it.

    Norton = bloatware, nuff said. :) Anyway, its kinda weird how even norton doesn't have an uninstall utility, doesn't every software have it? Unless it got corrupted some how which is a common occurance in many applications these days. The uninstall file that howard sent should help out. Put that in the norton directory and you should be able to uninstall that bloated piece of software now.

    the Symantec/Norton uninstaller that`s supplied with the programme doesn`t always work correctly and even when it does, it tends to leave lots of crap behind.

    The removal tool in this post HERE, is the preferred option for removing Symantec/Norton.

    Regards Howard :)
