    Does anyone know where that tool is to remove Symantec completely. I just noticed that I still have Symantec folders in my computer.

    Dont know if this helps. Couldnt find the NAV removal tools mentioned below on the symantec site, maybe some1 else can.

    Click this Link - A topic on some forum about it. Sounded too complicated and vague for me

    Symantec's products add/modify hundreds (or thousands) of registry
    keys/values and removing them all manually is impossible unless you trace
    the installation using a snapshot tool. If you want to remove the program,
    first, try uninstalling
    the program via Add/Remove Programs. If that does not help, look for the
    uninstaller tool available at Symantec's site for that particular product
    which you intend to remove.

    Note that uninstaller utility may not be available for all the products, but
    Symantec provides REG files for removing some products. Go to:
    http://www.symantec.com/search for more information.

    BTW, the Services entries are present in this registry location. One or more
    of the sub-keys may be related Norton products. You should be able to
    identify them easily by reading the "DisplayName" and "ImagePath" fields in
    the right-pane in the Registry Editor.

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services]

    rik's idea works good for me

    For those with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or REGEDIT dysfunction this works...

    Will this help?

    Don't know if this will help but it refers to a tool called RNAV2003.exe which removes old Norton files when add/remove program fails.
