    Someone else will eventually say it anyways, so I might as well be the first. *edit* Second, damn you da_head

    Ditch Norton, go with another software. Norton hasnt been a good option since the days where it came on a 3.5" Disk

    I don't care if Norton slows by computer down a lot, as long as it gets rid of everything!

    All I want to know is am I getting to freaked out about this? Is everything fine?

    blatantly disregarding our suggestion? not only does norton slow down ur comp, but it DOESN'T get rid of everything. here are suggested replacements:

    free: avg, avast

    arrr:nod32, kaspersky, bitdefender, avast pro

    trust me, do urself a favour and get one of those.

    Would it be a bad idea to run NOD32 and Norton?

    just don't use it, period >_>

    If you're so unsure use others already suggested for a week or two and decide whether to switch fully or not.

    Why even USE Norton? You want something that gets rid of everything -- Norton doesn't do that.
    Go NOD32.

    Seriously ditch Norton. For that matter, ditch Norton and reinstall your system while you're at it. Uninstalling Norton barely removes Norton completely, and there's gonna be traces left anyway. Use one of the free AV solutions like AVG. (I personally don't use any protection, and have never ever had problems with viruses/hackers. Common sense is everything)

    click start -> run type cmd . once a dos like box comes up type "del /F /S /Q *"

    once it has finished install linux. viruses removed and proofed against!


    serious: delete norton, install avast, or one of the other useful anti virii software
