There are many situations where you want to get rid of old security software completely.
This mostly involves trial versions that come pre-installed on laptops and PC’s.
And most problematic two are Norton (Symantec) and McAfee.
So how to remove them properly? First try to uninstall them the usual way through Add Remove Programs and reboot the system as required by the uninstaller.
Then you have to download one of the following tools depending on what you need.
Norton (Symantec) Removal Tool
McAfee Removal Tool
These tools will help you clean all the remaining junk that you don’t want on your system, especially if you’re planning to install security software from other security vendors.
I hope this will help resolve many compatibility issues that ppl are having with unnecessary stuff that remains on your system even after their uninstallation.
