I beta tested NIS & 360 (2013) Both the beta's & the final leave behind large amount of files & folders, and some are hidden, also large amount of registry entries are also left behind & some are legacy & can be difficult to remove.

MS first used an un-installer in Win95 & 17 years later still far too much junk is left behind after a so called un-install - it's just plain idleness on the part of the software writers - Norton should point you to a standalone un-installer at the time they enquire by a re-directed web page why you are leaving Norton - Norton is not alone in this though, try removing MS Office 2010 -

Still the best Norton product made.

New versions of Norton seem to uninstall pretty cleanly now, so I find myself needing this app less.

Can anyone say PEBKAC? If Symantec software won't uninstall the normal way then it's probably a mistake the user made, not Symantec's mistake.

Does exactly what it advertises - and is fairly thorough. Doesn't get ALL Norton traces, but 99% ain't bad. And it's a helluva lot better than CA (no removal tool that works), AVG (broken removal tool), McAfee (not bad, but not as good as Norton) or ZoneAlarm (none and uninstaller doesn't work more often than not).

For those bagging Norton - probably worth trying it again. It isn't 2006 anymore, and Norton's 2009-2010 product is arguably the fastest integrated product on the market (NIS, not 360).

I tried this today, on the SAV Corp. version, and the thing insisted that I use Add/remove programs to remove the application, which wasn't working to begin with, and the reason for using this to begin with..

-- I had to go through the system, and kill it manually.

then ran it again, and there was still a ton of Symantec junk in the system folders, and registry.,.
