    Oh yes.. this folder is refusing to shift at all. I had a suggestion from another forum to replace it in
    C:\Program Files\Norton AntiVirus\AdvTools\NPROTECT.EXE

    So i popped it in that folder and uninstalled norton systemworks 2003 and its still there complete with contents

    well you could do it the old fashion way via dos/command prompt.. or i've heard there maybe some apps that can delete it on the next bootup like "killbox" if thats correct..

    give this a shot.. although if you ask me how to use it i wont have a clue. just read the readme file :) all i know is that it will remove the folder on the next boot before windows comes in and it should do the job...
