If you use Norton the resource sucker here’s a little tip.
This is worth doing if you have a Norton disk that gives you 1 years Subscription.
I’ve tried many a crack or patch to out do Norton but eventually they all fail.
I’ve done this a couple of times and it’s worked.
Uninstall Norton completely. Go to Add Remove Programs and get rid of anything to do with it.
Open up My Computer and click on Tools on the top menu and select Folder Options
Click on the View Tab and click on Show hidden files and folders.
Go to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data
Delete the folder called Symantec. (This is where Norton remembers what your renewal date is)
To be on the safe side go to C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data and delete the Symantec folder in there too.
Delete the folders Norton Antivirus and Symantec in Program files if they are there.
Norton likes to leave crap everywhere.
Now reinstall Norton and you should be rewarded with fresh Subscription service.
Let me know how you go.
