Well! I'm using a Norton SystemWorks 2004 now and I like to re-install it due to the expiry of the subscription.

I need to re-install the whole thing again but I don't know whether the uninstallation will be complete or not.

I heard from my friends that Norton product often left some files behind after an uninstallation and they might cause some problems on the PC.

Please help me! My Norton SystemWorks 2004 only has a One-Button-Check, Anti-Virus, Norton Utilities and Norton Scheduler.

I did an overall removal of Norton stuff always by the normal Un-installer, restart the comp... then get to the the Registry Editor (run-> regedit.exe) and search for all the entries with NAV ; Sym and delete them all out clean...

I could re-install my Norton stuff again and have a re-newed subscription... btw to what i've encountered... norton systemworks messed up my system in a long run... I stopped using it after the last-reformat... I just used the Norton Antivirus from then on... BTW do you have any other recommendations of system diagnostic tools other then using norton system works?

Newbie qn on licensing

Hi.

If I buy Norton Internet Security for home use & wish to install on 2 or 3 PCs - I have to buy more than 1 package or can just buy additional licenses?


Thanks!!

Currently, i'm using AVG Anti-Spy (which is a trial ver n expired, can oni get updates manually n i assume no online detect/protection capability). Is it enou juz by updating n run it 2 scan 4 malwares/spywares?

If i were 2 d/l adware from lavasoftusa. Can my AVG anti-spy b used concurrently n will not cause conflicts? Btw, i still got window defender.

Plz advise. Thkz in adv.

Hi, maybe let's just share wat software u use. For me,


1) AVG antivirus for protection against virus.
2) diskeeper 10. for defragmentation. I personally feel that it is one of the better ones compared to perfectdisk and some other software
3) tuneup utility 2006 but cleaning registry but recently i changed to power suite by uniblue. I ever used systune but i realize there were some 'rumors' that it is a spyware. anyone use this b4 can share ur experience?
4) peerguardian 2 for p2p downloading. don know whether if i actually do it job.
5) adaware for protection against spyware. Personally i don feel that it is very good but i just stick to it for now.
6) Other stuff like firewall i use microsoft provide de
