    Uninstall Norton
    :confused: Until I can fit a new system in my budget, I'm stuck with my Windows ME. How do I uninstall Norton Security and Norton Anti-virus system? At one point I did hit uninstall in the programs list, now I can't find it anywhere, it's not even in install/uninstall programs. Also when I try to uninstall Symantec, it says it can't because Norton uses it. I have 3 Trogan Horse viruses and I need to get rid of them! HELP!
