This question was answered on December 8, 2004. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.Click on Start | Settings | Control Panel
In the control panel double-click on Add / Remove Programs
Look through the list of installed programs for any item that says either "Norton" or "Symantec" or "LiveUpdate" (for example "Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition" or "Norton AntiVirus 2000")
For each "Norton", "Symantec", or "LiveUpdate" item, select the item and click Add / Remove Follow the instructions, and click Yes or Yes to all when prompted
When you are done there should be no items in the list that say "Norton", "Symantec", or "LiveUpdate"
Click OK to close the Add / Remove Programs window
Reboot your computer if it hasn't already automatically rebooted
Delete the c:\Program Files\Symantec AntiVirus (or c:\Program Files\Norton) folder
