    program to remove norton from new laptop win 8.1


    My wife got a new laptop and neither of us like the norton I never have. I purchased Avast a while back for three computers and want to install it on her laptop but, want to make sure all the norton is removed first will this tool do the job? Thanks! https://support.norton.com/sp/en/us/...=1&pvid=f-home

    Yup, that's what you need, version 22.0.0
    Download, run and follow the prompts.

    The Norton Removal Tool will remove MOST but not all Norton files on your computer. After running the tool, search for any file with Norton or Symantec in the file name and delete them manually. After running the tool recently, I found 4 or 5 files scattered around that were not removed by the tool.
