johnshearer's review of Norton Antivirus 2003 - Symantec

“Don't go anywhere near the 2003 version of Norton...”


written by johnshearer on 10/01/2006

Good Points
Works fine unless you have to uninstall it - which you will do as it is no longer supported!

Bad Points
Impossible to uninstall - and unless you can the upgrade, it won't install - what a nightmare!

General Comments
Don't go anywhere near the 2003 version of Norton Antivirus as it is not supported.

I spent three frustrating days trying to manually edit the registry to get rid of the 2003 product, as the new 2006 version I had just shelled out $(AUS)85 wouldn't install.

The utility on their website to uninstall the program doesn't work. Their technical support on the website is contradictory - with different pages telling you to do different things. Their online chat technical support seem to have little actual technical experience and simply talk you through the steps from the website (and then conveniently escape as you have to reboot at certain points!)...

If you have a clean system with no other antivirus installed, then Norton may be okay, but what happens when you eventually have to uninstall??
